Dan Deacon’s dance-off pit

The Hudson River Rocks series began last night (7/12) on Pier 84 with sets from Dan Deacon, John Maus, and Roomrunner. The new location is a lot nicer than Pier 54, where River Rocks was held in previous years. Where Pier 54 is pretty much just a straight line of pavement, at Pier 84 you’re standing on outdoor tiles, the pier is broken up by some evergreen trees towards the back, and they create shade over stone wall-lined grassy area where you can sit between bands.

Roomrunner opened the show, unfortunately with a bit of technical problems hindering their set. Up next was John Maus, crazy as usual, taking over the stage with just a microphone as his beats played through the PA and he screamed without his mic, punched himself in the head, and gradually spilled more and more water over himself throughout the show. Dan Deacon closed out the show, also crazy as usual, with all of his regular antics like forming a giant pit in the middle of the crowd for a dance-off. If you made it out to the free show, what did you think?

River Rocks continues with two more free shows on Pier 84 this summer. On July 26 it’s Oberhofer and The Soft Pack, and on August 9 it’s Grimes (who has four not-free sold out NYC shows coming up), Wild Nothing, and DIIV (who played two NYC shows last night).
