"Times New Viking and The Feelies were really really great at Prospect Park last night. Real Estate also played." - Kris Liakos

The Feelies braved the heat to play a free Celebrate Brooklyn show in Prospect Park on Saturday (7/23) with Times New Viking and Real Estate. Like Seun Kuti in the same space the night before, the band was definitely competing with people's air conditioning on Saturday night.

The Feelies rewarded those in attendance with two encores. The first was three songs and they covered Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones, and The Stooges. They then left and returned once more for a second encore which was the Crazy Rhythms single "Fa Ce-La."

Check out a video of The Feelies' Stooges cover, some backstage audio with Times New Viking and Real Estate, the partial setlist and more pictures from the show below...

that is a very incomplete setlist

The Feelies don't do anything for me, but I'm glad that the show was free and the fans had a chance to come relive the glory days.

As for Times New Viking, I am looking forward to the night that I will make sweet love with that keyboard / singer. Sah-weet!

5:21 - incomplete like they played more songs that that, or incomplete like it was a painfully short set?

"The Feelies didn't play any material off the recently released reunion album Here Before, instead sticking to their earlier material..."

Not true. I distinctly remember them playing "Nobody Knows."

What an endorsement! HAHAHAHA!

This show had an age restriction I attempted to get around but was carded. Apparently it was a 41+ event, and they only served white wine.

I can fill in one bit of the set list: the Dylan song was "Seven Days"

Posted by Paul | July 25, 2011 6:00 PM

No straight male in the first 10 rows will be permitted to stand up during the opening performance of Times New Viking.

Thank you for your cooperation.

That's a lot of old seated dudes with arms folded.

Posted by Anonymous | July 25, 2011 6:03 PM

c'mon what do you expect? It was 95 degrees out. So what if people sat down and watched the band instead of jumping up and down like kids the minute a band played?

I guess if you are 22 the thought of doing anything other than spazzing out like a five year old on a sugar rush the minute you hear a chord played on an electric guitar makes you feel old.

all those pictures of old people with their arms folded fighting sleep were taken during the Real Estate set. those guys were all going crazy the rest of the night.

Congrats 6:24, you get Ignoramus Of The Day! You'll be in the running for Ignoramus Of The Week, so fingers crossed! Seriously, nice job!

Woah, I didn't realize it was night of the living dead.
You'd think they were giving out a free pack of Depends with the $3.

What's with all the old jokes? The Feelies rock just as hard, or harder, than any young band.

Posted by Anonymous | July 25, 2011 8:45 PM

"What's with all the old jokes?"

Going out on a limb here, but maybe because they are freaking old?

Posted by Anonymous | July 25, 2011 9:13 PM

The Feelies are possibly the most boring rock band I have ever seen. says a lot about a band when their best songs are all covers.

I'm sure you all will find better bands when you start community college in the fall.

times new viking sucked. what a shitty band.

Posted by Anonymous | July 25, 2011 11:35 PM

the feelies were supposed to supply their music for the movie "carlos" but then they found out carlos was a terrorist and they said no. so the movie used wire, dead boys, a certain ratio, new order and 1 feelies song.

Posted by Anonymous | July 25, 2011 11:47 PM

the best feelies song is actually crazy rhythms which is not a cover and no one ever said their best songs were covers. little correction here from me, the corrector of inarticulate brooklyn vegan fat dude squad.

Posted by Anonymous | July 25, 2011 11:49 PM

Feelies were great. Opened the 2nd encore with a cover of The Doors "Take It As It Comes"

Posted by Anonymous | July 26, 2011 12:18 AM

I wish I didn't give my setlist away, so I could correct what's listed. The list on setlist.fm (which I guess is where the list given here came from) is missing "On The Roof," "The High Road," "Nobody Knows" and "Let's Go" at the start.

And they didn't play "Forces At Work." Actually they've only played it I think twice since 2008, once at ATP.

I like that Feelies coffee mug. I'd buy one if they sold them online.

attention kids..you will all get old some day and most of you wont be doing anything exciting or worth reading about when you do..

Posted by Anonymous | July 26, 2011 10:31 AM

hey kids.... at least the older generation has bands that still satisfy musically down the road. When you are older most likely any of your flavor of the moth hipster groups will not be worth seeing.

enjoy your musical youth


suckers

Amen, 11:01. We fucking hated Baby Boomers when I was younger and wanted nothing to do with their music, but were never retarded enough to shit on it. We'll see what lasts from Hipsterland, but thus far it looks like not much will aside from a lot of ugly tattoos.

"most likely any of your flavor of the moth hipster groups will not be worth seeing."

such an ignorant and blanketed statement. to anyone who says/thinks this sentiment, congrats, you are officially your father.

this was awesome (except for real estate). feelies are better than 90% of the bands playing brooklyn right now

Wish I could have made the show. Real Estate are great and would be interesting to see the Feelies.

I can't believe that a TNV/Feelies show wasn't packed, let alone that so many people here are bitching about the bands, the audience, or both. I suggest that whoever pays to put these shows on should put them on in Baltimore or DC - we'd welcome free shows from such great bands.

(Sorry, I don't know much about Real Estate. I saw them once opening for one of the worst bands I've ever seen, "Girls", and my memory of RE is unfairly influenced by that fact.)

Posted by Grax | July 26, 2011 1:07 PM

It wasn't packed because the Feelies have played NYC about 20 times in the last 3 or 4 years, including 4 straight shows at Maxwell's about 3 weeks ago.
The novelty of this great lost band from the late 70s/early 80s making an unlikely reunion has pretty much worn off. When you tear away the stuff like the "legend" and the "influenced everybody" tag, the music is pretty monotonous and uninteresting.

Posted by Anonymous | July 26, 2011 1:30 PM

OK, actual Feelies setlist:

On The Roof
The High Road
Nobody Knows
Let's Go
Should Be Gone
Deep Fascination
Higher Ground
The Final Word
Away
Slipping (Into Something)
Doing It Again
Too Far Gone
Raised Eyebrows
Crazy Rhythms

Encore 1:
Seven Days (Dylan)
Rocks Off (Rolling Stones)
Now I Wanna Be Your Dog (Stooges)

Encore 2:
Take It As It Comes (Doors)
Fa Ce La

Posted by Andy | July 26, 2011 1:30 PM

I wouldn't call The Feelies music monotonous and uninteresting when performed live. It's kind of true with regard to their albums, but even in their heyday they were always more highly regarded as a live band.

Posted by Anonymous | July 26, 2011 2:10 PM

honestly, real estate sounded great. and they make great songs. times new viking, however, sounded so shitty...which sucked cuz i was stoked to see them! of course, the feelies were lovely.

Posted by Anonymous | July 26, 2011 3:01 PM

You people are so ignorant it is sad. Those photos showing empty seats were for the early acts. The place looked pretty packed by the time the Feelies went on.
and The Feelies were great innovators and set a musical path. If you don't hear it it is because so many bands have followed their example over the years and you are to ignorant to know.
