The Mayfair Set

The Mayfair Set

“Festival is a very misleading term to describe this showcase because this wasn’t really a festival. There were a lot of bands playing which is a prerequisite for a festival, but beyond that there wasn’t a whole hell of a lot that qualified this as a festival. It was basically just a really kick-ass show that lasted for two days. There was rain on Friday, and the show was moved indoors. I discovered this after circling the block several times. I could hear the music, and I could tell something was definitely going on but for the life of me I could not find the fucking place. Finally, I stopped two people who looked like they would definitely know where the show was and when I asked them “Do you know where the show is?” they responded by saying “Show? What show?” and then I tried again, this time clearing my throat before speaking, “I am looking for the Woodsist/Captured Tracks Fest-i-val. Would you happen to know where it is located?” and then the bro gave me an approving nod and explained to me that the show was going on above a grocery store called Mr. Kiwi’s and that the way to get there is to slip through the door on the side. Many thanks to that dude because I found what I was looking for shortly there after.” [no gift for the gab]

Considering all the rain we’ve been having, it’s amazing how nice it ended up being over Fourth of July weekend. Saturday’s show in Battery Park, as well as the 2nd day of the Woodsist/Captured Tracks Fest at 979 Broadway Backyard had beautiful weather. Friday’s show at South Street Seaport was completely dry and breezy as well. Unfortunately though, there was some rain earlier on Friday (6/3), and so the Woodsist Fest organizers were forced to make a decision, and that decision was to move the day’s festivities to Market Hotel… the very, very hot Market Hotel.

Bands on the bill for that first day were Blank Dogs, Psychedelic Horseshit, caUSE co-MOTION!, the Mayfair Set, Gary War, Little Girls, Kid Romance, Beachniks, and the Gutsies. What were the highlights?

As Bill pointed out, the Mayfair Set is “a collaboration with Blank Dogs (and Captured Tracks domo) Mike Sniper” and Dee Dee from Dum Dum Girls, who, as I just pointed out, is actually Kristin Gundred from Grand Ole Party. Live it was Kristin, Mike, JB from Crystal Stilts, Jeremy from Woods, and Jarvis Taveniere from Woods, Meneguar & other bands. For Mike and Kristin, it was the first of two bands they debuted at the fest over the weekend. On Saturday it was Dum Dum Girls. Both new bands were filled out by members of other bands (Dum Dum Girls had a Crystal Stilt and a Crocodile).
