Alvvays / Protomartyr @ Seaport Music Fest 7/11/2014
Alvvays
Protomartyr

Canadian band Alvvays released their self-titled debut album last week (7/22) via Polyvinyl. It's fully of ridiculously catchy indiepop and gives terms like "winsome" a good name. If you haven't heard it yet you can stream it via Rdio. The band are currently in NYC and will play a record release show tonight (7/28) at Rough Trade. It's free and all ages, doors at 6:30 PM with the show starting at 7 PM.

Alvvays were here not too long ago, playing the kickoff show for the 2014 Seaport Music Festival (7/11) with Protomartyr. We already posted one set of pictures from that show, but another set is in this post. More pictures below...

Real question, does anybody know how crowded the Rough Trade show might be? I haven't been to a free one there yet...

I was just on the Jewish-Italian airline, Vell Italia (well, I'll tell ya).

hm, so the seaport shows are no longer at the seaport

@2:49,

The Seaport is currently under serious renovation -- the mall that was there has been razed and the pier where Seaport shows used to be is being redone. The stage is on the other side of the highway on Fulton.

And @2:42... it's early and they're a pretty new band so you could probably show up at 7 and get in tonight would be my guess.
