After Joanna Gruesome‘s tour with Perfect Pussy, Potty Mouth and The Love of Everything hit Shea Stadium on 8/26 (pics), they made their way back to NYC for a free show at the South Street Seaport on Friday (8/29), the final Seaport Music Festival show of the summer. (Perfect Pussy and Potty Mouth were in Asbury Park that night.) Opening this one was NYC’s Big Ups, who look and sound right out of the ’90s with influences that don’t go too far beyond that era’s Dischord and Touch & Go bands, and a wild frontman who does the sound justice.

Joanna Gruesome’s set, though it was on a much higher stage for a much more spread out crowd than their Shea set a few days earlier, was just as enjoyable in this environment as it was in that one. And really for both bands the crowds were about as good as they could be at a place like the South Street Seaport: crowded in right up to the front of the barrier.
