The War on Drugs & Land of Talk played Central Park (pics, setlist)

After playing Terminal 5 with Craig Finn, The War On Drugs played their second of two NYC shows on their current tour at Central Park SummerStage on Friday (9/22) with another great opener, Land of Talk, who released their first album in seven years this year. TWOD’s Adam Granduciel was clearly excited to play with Land of Talk, and introduced them as “one of the best bands in the world.” Their crisp sound and high-energy performance was a great match for The War On Drugs.

Like at the Terminal 5 show, TWOD had a spectacular light show, and the six-piece band had no trouble bringing the big sounds of their new album A Deeper Understanding to life. They also mixed up their setlist just a bit, this time breaking out their cover of Warren Zevon’s “Accidentally Like A Martyr” and reaching back to their 2008 debut Wagonwheel Blues for “Arms Like Boulders.” Pictures of the Central Park show are in the gallery above. TWOD’s setlist and a video are below.
