Stephen Malkmus, Yo La Tengo & Turkey @ Battery Park, NYC | Pics

On July 4th, 2005, NYC & Matador Records gave us a free Laura Cantrell, Stephen Malkmus (Pavement), & Yo La Tengo concert in Battery Park in Lower Manhattan.

Yo La Tengo, Stephen Malkmus and Turkey

By the time I got there, Malkmus was half way through his set (he played second). The line was huge. You could hear outside the gated area, but people were crammed into every available spot. Even when headliner Yo La Tengo finished their fourth song, the line to get strip searched and OK’d for entry was still massive. After listening for a bit from across the street, and taking pictures of a turkey that was chillin’ in a tree near the entrance, I took off. I had a rooftop to get to anyway.
