Warpaint @ Prospect Park – 6/26/14
Warpaint put out their second album at the beginning of this year, and after having supported it in NYC with an intimate Union Pool show and a much larger Webster Hall show, the LA band returned last night for an even larger (and free) Celebrate Brooklyn show in Prospect Park. The venue filled out pretty well, though it wasn’t hard to get into or anything, unlike the Janelle Monae show earlier this month.
The band were in great form, going through their many sounds that included haunting folk, psychedelia, dream pop, and shinier/dancier pop, all while being an adept and big-sounding band that had no problem projecting to the back of the big outdoor venue. Vocal harmonies were spot on too. They were doing some complex stuff that came across more last night than on record, and I don’t think they hit a wrong note.
Yellowbirds opened the show. More pictures of both bands below…
