Temples / Here We Go Magic / Spires @ River Rocks 8/7/2014
Temples
Here We Go Magic
Spires

River Rocks wrapped up its 2014 season with UK band Temples, whose chiming brand of '60s poppy psych and '70s glam hairstyles brought the biggest crowds to Pier 84 this year. Their 10-song set hit most of the highlights from their debut album, Sun Structures, plus a couple non-LP tracks as well. Opening were Here We Go Magic, and brothers-in-vibe Spires (who played with Temples at Union Pool last year). Another lovely evening, with an especially picaresque sunset, on the Hudson. Pictures from the evening and Temples' setlist are in this post.

Temples' tour stays in the NY-area this weekend, playing again with Spires tonight (8/8) at Asbury Lanes, and then hitting the Surf Lodge in Montauk on Saturday (8/9) which is free. They'll then be back in October, on tour with The Districts. More pics from the River Rocks show below...

I'm sure you gave it the college try Ebru but these photos ain't great. Usually photos make a gig look better than it actually was...but I was there last night and it was better than these photos imply. Sorry.

@7:16, it's not like they were bipping and bopping all over the place. Not discounting the music, but I'm not sure what else you're expecting.

He could have done more with HWGM though, if you want to be critical.

8:54 - Better composition and some crowd shots for environment and context would've been nice.

Almost every pic is shot solo portrait style.

@8:01, yr def right now that I reviewed the shots again. Really lacking in the multiple members/audience captures.
