Lee Fields / Darren Mabee
Lee Fields & The Expressions
!!!

Lee Fields was probably the first act to ever perform at a Jelly Pool Party that promised the crowd his autograph after the show if they bought a CD, and that's part of the reason to love him. He's an old school genuine performer, now living in a land of modern day hipsters, at least that was the case on Sunday where he shared a bill with Future Islands, the Strange Boys and !!!.

Lee's soulful set included may of the great songs off his new album, "My World", including the title track, "Money is King", and "Ladies". The latter was one of many songs where Lee asked for crowd participation, and the rained-on crowd usually obliged. Many, including Darren Mabee, showed off their dance moves. Most at least swayed their arms back and forth in the air. For Lee, and some of his large backing band, it was their second big Brooklyn appearance in a short amount of time. The first was at Sharon Jones's headlining gig in Prospect Park.

Future Islands and the Strange Boys opened the free show for those that got there early enough. !!! headlined for those that stuck around around. More pictures from the whole day, below...

Cool man! Lee Fields must have felt so welcomed opening for a fucking dance-punk band. Give me a break Jelly. Way to take irony to the next level.

Im sure Lee Fields had the worst time. Sucks getting paid to do official shows in front of a decent crowd.

Jelly shows are official? I thought they were free.

Williamsburg hasn't gotten so slow lately. Wait for the day you whisper into some girls ear, 3 years from now, at Terminal 5 that you saw Future Islands and pool parties for free. Then that dumb bitch that is next to says: Pool Parties? What are those? Lets go, I'm hungry.

BV is an enabler for that tubby guy. "LOOK AT ME I'M FAT AND A HIPSTER! I'M SPECIAL!" Who raised this louse? Society. That's who. Shame on us all.
