Atlas Sound @ South Street Seaport - July 25, 2008 (by Tear-n Tan)
Atlas Sound

One might not think South Street Seaport's outdoor Mall food court vibe would be the best place to see an Atlas Sound show. Truth is Bradford Cox's loopy lo-fi psych-pop is probably better suited for a black light lite basement, or on headphones in your bedroom high on Nyquil. However, somehow, Bradford was able to translate the warmth of Let The Blind Lead Those Who Can See But Cannot Feel for a crowd of screwed up kids, post-work partiers, middle aged couples, khaki clad tourists, and, yep, a few hipsters. [Chocolate Bobka]

Bradford then played a set of songs with Avey Tare of Animal Collective at Bowery Ballroom the next night (July 26, 2008). They called themselves Harmony Club. I don't have a picture of that, but I do have one of Bradford & Geologist on stage together at this summer's Primavera Sound festival:

Bradford's next NYC show is this Sunday, August 3rd at McCarren Pool. He'll be a member of Deerhunter at that show. King Khan & The Shrines and Black Lips (and Sic Alps?? and/or Tall Firs??) are also on that bill. Atlas Sound's next NYC show is October 2nd at Irving Plaza with Stereolab who Atlas Sound are also playing a bunch of other shows with. Exact dates, and a Seaport video, below...
