Protomartyr / Alvvays @ Seaport Music Fest 7/11/2014
Protomartyr
Alvvays

Back up to a robust eight weeks of live music, the 2014 Seaport Music Festival kicked off this past Friday (7/11) with a strong, if disparate, double bill of Canadian guitar poppers Alvvays and Detroit's fiery Protomartyr as headliners. With Pier 17 under heavy renovation (along with half of that area -- the mall has been razed) the action now happens on Fulton St where they lay astroturf over the pavement, making for a relaxed environment. Seeing Protomartyr -- who have strong, funny opinions on a variety of things, lyrically -- play against the backdrop of the financial center seemed right. It was a great night.

This Friday (7/18) is Canada's Calvin Love and locals Las Rosas. More pics of Protomartyr and Alvvays below...
