Fear of Men @ Seaport Music Festival 6/21/2013
Fear of Men

UK indiepop quartet Fear of Men flew over to NYC just to play the Summer Solstice edition (6/21) of this year’s Seaport Music Festival. After two Fridays of dodgy weather, you coudn’t have asked for a nicer night, and Fear of Men’s gentle jangle was the perfect accompaniment. In addition to their own songs, their set included a cover of The Chills’ 1984 classic, “Pink Frost,” which is always welcome to hear. Local synth-rock duo Writer opened the show, and pictures of both bands are in this post.

The Seaport is definitely different since Hurricane Sandy put much of the area underwater last fall. Pizzeria Uno, with its popular restroom facility, is gone and the boardwalk has been rezoned, restricting the places you can have an open beer a bit. On the plus side: Smorgasburg food vendors are there every day on Front Street in the cobblestone area just off Fulton.

The Seaport Music Festival wraps up its short run this Friday (6/28) with their biggest show of the season: Unknown Mortal Orchestra and Bass Drum of Death which is free and open to the public. Then the next day is the Village Voice 4Knots Festival, with Kurt Vile, The Men, Marnie Stern, Parquet Courts, White Lung and more. That is also free and open to the public.
