Boogarins / Jacco Gardner @ South Street Seaport - 8/15/14

It was two sides of a psychedelic coin on Friday (8/15) as the Seaport Music Festival brought in two young bands from around the world for one of the best nights there this summer. Looking a bit like Beck in a courderoy jacket and leather hat, Netherlands singer Jacco Gardner and a new version of his band gave us their baroque paisley pop, including a few songs from his upcoming second album. His band is tight and they pull off the harmonies effortlessly. (That said, they were even better at Baby's All Right on Saturday.) Brazil's Boogarins, meanwhile, are more on the guitar-heavy groovy tip, with a little Os Mutantes tropicalia in there for good measure. They clearly enjoying playing, and singer Fernando Almeida had a joyous smile on his face too. They also played some new material from their second album which is already in the can. Unlike last week when most folks stayed seated on the astroturf, people were on their feet for both bands. A really fun night.

This Friday's Seaport Music Fest features Oxford, Mississippi's Dead Gaze, Mystery Lights and one more TBA. More pics from Boogarins and Jacco Gardner below...

Looks pretty sparsely attended.

It was one of the few of these Seaport gigs that there was actually a standing crowd. And it's a really long mall where people were camped out on astroturf. My only complaint is that it was too quiet.
