Drew & Canning at Central Park's Rumsey Playfield
Broken Social Scene

The Polaris Music Prize ceremony is happening tonight, Monday, 9/20, at 8pm EST. Canadians can watch the event on Much, and satellite radio subscribers can listen live on channel 86. Maybe short list nominee Broken Social Scene will tune in to see if they win. They have tonight off from their current North American tour (which resumes Tuesday at the Calvin Theater in Northampton, MA).

That tour landed at Rumsey Playfield aka Central Park Summerstage in NYC on Saturday night (September 18th). The Sea & Cake opened for and some of its members played with the Canadian Collective which featured the base crew of Kevin Drew, Brendan Canning, Justin Peroff, Charles Spearin, Andrew Whiteman, Lisa Lobsinger, along with horns and others (no Amy, Emily, or Feist)...

Kevin Drew announced at the outset that the band was going to just play for two hours, and he was true to his words. Aside from occasional pauses to introduce songs or various band members (and to send several of them crowd-surfing into the audience), the group went through one song after another. As expected, there was an emphasis on its latest album, Spring's "Forgiveness Rock Record," but BSS played many of its well-known tunes, including "7/4 (Shoreline)," "Fire Eyed Boy," "Superconnected," "Looks Just Like the Sun," and "Lover's Spit."-[Podcastparty]

The Summerstage staff were inexcusably rude. Just absolute dicks.

i dont think this setlist is correct. they definitely played cause=time a few songs before lovers spit.

Great show ... cookies i made were too strong though (opps)

Posted by Burg | September 20, 2010 12:36 PM

What happened 12:28pm?! Tell us your story!

Anyway I thought the show was fantastic. They always seem to bring much love to NYC....

come back and play Webster Hall/MHOW/Bowery in December pleaseeee

Posted by Anon | September 20, 2010 12:36 PM

amazing show. one of the best sets ive ever seen Broken Social Scene play. And the Sea & Cake were much more energetic and into it then I have seen them in the past.

12:36 [Burg] - Can please elaborate on your cookie situation?

Thank you in advance.

Very good show but no way as good as Music Hall show from earlier in the year, Cannot even compare.

Posted by Anonymous | September 20, 2010 12:56 PM

show was ill.....minus the group of faux fashionista assclown coked up dbags next to me that wouldnt shut the fuk up-literally for the entire show. Almost had to choke a beatch

Posted by Anonymous | September 20, 2010 1:23 PM

Setlist is definitely wrong order. Completely wrong.

Posted by Anonymous | September 20, 2010 1:24 PM

elaborate?

Well ... They were chocolate chip ..... I brought/ate two of them. I made them in the morning and had no time actually "test" them.

The legs were a little wobbly about 1/3 into their set and I'm sure I looked ridiculously "tired" to anyone around me.

The wife took one look at me when I got home and knew that I didn't quite get the recipe right.

But enough about me and my cookies. I thought the show was really good. There were a couple of moments that didn't feel as strong (musically) as others, but overall ... GREAT. What a great singer.

The Besnard Lakes deserve the Polaris prize this year, sorry BSS.

Also, the guy in the sunglasses from the Sea & Cake = Dave Matthews?

Dear red hoodied midget fuck,

You talked THE ENTIRE SHOW! Go fuck yourself. Die die die. That is all.

Posted by Anonymous | September 20, 2010 2:12 PM

The BSS show isn't over until you both get your cookies.

Posted by Anonymous | September 20, 2010 2:37 PM

Crowd was horrendous. Everyone was talking the entire time.

Posted by Chris | September 20, 2010 2:45 PM

Seriously, for any new song or quiet number it sounded like the beginning of the first Roxy Music LP.

Posted by Anonymous | September 20, 2010 3:09 PM

Sea and Cake were a great opening band. The energy from the BSS was awesome. Great job in mixing the new songs with the old. Weather was nice. Like the subtle protest to outside smoking which there was a lot of Happy smoke and nicotine.

Posted by O | September 20, 2010 3:18 PM

The Sea and Cake are too mellow and subtle to ever get the appreciation they deserve. In a perfect world, BSS would be opening for them.

Anyone have the Sea & Cake setlist?

Sweet HD video indeed.. Thanks for posting.

Can you bring food in? I'm seeing Pavement later in the week and would rather bring in some sandwiches than have to buy hot dogs or whatever. Thanks

Posted by scobie | September 20, 2010 5:09 PM

here's an idea. eat before the show.

Posted by Anonymous | September 20, 2010 5:26 PM

Well, Scobie ... I would have to say probably not. I'm sure it's possible to do it and they were fairly relaxed about the searches (I snuck my cookies in no problem, but I have a feeling that if they saw your sandwiches they wouldn't allow you to take them in mith you.

Posted by Burg | September 20, 2010 5:34 PM

Okay, thanks 5:34. I appreciate it.

Posted by scobie | September 20, 2010 5:42 PM

I've actually come up with a series of sandwiches that can only be eaten at specific points during Pavement's set:

Range Life=Chicken Salad sandwich made from free-range chicken breast with a hint of BBQ sauce

Grounded=Sloppy Joe made from hormone-free ground beef

Two States=Jumbo Hot Dog/Tube-steak

Shady Lane=maple-smoked turkey, applewood-smoked cheddar, lettuce, tomato and honey mustard

etc.,etc., you get the point

It's just I've put far too much thought into this to just have some Central Park thug take away my sandwiches and ruin the night of all nights that I've had planned.

Posted by Anonymous | September 20, 2010 5:45 PM

Hey, I love it. What about for "Summer Babe"? I'm thinking chicken salad with basil and watercress on a baguette.

Posted by scobie | September 20, 2010 5:54 PM

Summer Babe was going to be a Coca-cola marinated steak-tip sandwich with mango tapenade on grilled Wonderbread, but it might be a moot point if those parks department facists get their way.

I don't know what all these comments are all about... But I ate hummus the entire time I was there.

BSS's Webster Hall show a few years back is without a doubt one of the best shows I've ever been to (and I actually wasn't high for once). I've seen seven times, but it usually feels like they are on cruise control. Their spring MHOW show was much better than Summer Stage's effort. They can be amazing when they want to –

Posted by Anonymous | September 20, 2010 10:18 PM

The show was great but I agree that there were too many asshole talkers. I don't understand why you would pay $35 to see a concert when you are just gonna talk the whole time.

A good insight and ideas.. I will use it in my article. You’ve obviously spent a lot of time on this. Congratulations!
