Little Dragon/Frankie Rose at Prospect Park - 8/10/12
Little Dragon
Frankie Rose

Little Dragon and Frankie Rose teamed up for an incredible double billing at Prospect Park on Friday (8/10) for the second to last free Celebrate Brooklyn show of the season (the last was on Saturday). Little Dragon played mostly off of their 2011 LP, Ritual Union, but included a few off of their first two albums as well. If you missed the show, did you stream it on NPR? If you missed that stream, you can listen to the archive of Little Dragon's full set on NPR.

Frankie Rose, meanwhile, had a busy weekend, playing The Surf Lodge in Montauk the next day.

The show began with a Voices of Black DJ set. More pictures of all three acts, Little Dragon's setlist and a video from their set are below...

I tried to get into it but Little Dragon just didn't do anything for me. I usually give it 3 songs, but this time I didn't even make it all the way through the 2nd. I walked the fuck out. Frankie Rose was fun though, I enjoyed that.

This show was a huge dance party! I had a great time and didn't end up going to Colbert thing! Heard lips and grizzly bear only played like 3 songs each?

Wow! Do any adults still read this blog? Judging by these comments, I'd say you hipster kids pretty much displaced them just as you've displaced the lower earning former residents.

Wow...does Frankie Rose blow through band members or what. I don't think I've ever seen her with the same line up twice.

Nice Max Factor make-up pad electro drum pads on Little Dragon btw.

Little Dragon was great. They keep getting better live. They've been playing alot of EDM fests, so they've learned how to get the asses shaking. Despite her best efforts, nobody was paying attention during Frankie Rose - no applause or jeers, just massive indifference.

^ has not been to the bandshell for any real rock shows, or (s)he would realize how off base that statement is

been going to the bandshell for a very long time now. seen countless shows there and and rarely does it get dancey the way it did that night. if you were at the concert you would know what I mean. presumptions like these doesn't make you cool. it just makes you wrong.

how the fuck does it get dancey when you've got all those asshat folding chairs there. So goddamn annoying.

Agreed with the above. I didn't know much about Little Dragon's live show. I expected something much more down tempo. But, it was really upbeat and wonderful. There were people standing in the seats and dancing in the aisles the whole time. They completely won over the crowd. I'm so happy to have the live NPR feed available for download, but wish it was higher than 128kb.

Best show of the summer!!!

This is the type of thing I would love to see. I'd even go to it with my own mother. As embarrassing as that is I couldn't let myself not go to a show this awesome.
