Tift Merritt

"Wow Tift Merritt's voice is even more spectacular & nuanced in RL than on my iPod. Best river to river performance yet"
- Tara Lannen-Stanton
While Jay Reatard was playing a free NYC show in Stuyvesant TOWN yesterday (7/1), Sarah Lee Guthrie, John Irion, and alt-country star Tift Merritt were playing a free NYC show (courtesy of the River to River Festival) in Stuyvesant HIGH SCHOOL (which is where the originally-outdoor show was moved to due to the threat of rain). More pictures below...

Real life abbreviated to "RL"? Is Tara Lannen-Stanton 13 years old? Seriously, come the F on already!

Tift sang "Keep You Happy" off mic, and off PA. She filled the auditorium with only her voice and acoustic guitar. You just had to be there.
