Stars @ Summerstage, NYC| pics
Stars opened for the Decemberists and Death Cab for Cutie at Central Park Summerstage on Thursday August 18, 2005. There's always been something awkward about a Stars live show, but I thought they sounded and looked great. I love Summerstage.
The band was extremely thankful for the opportunity to play the show. When frontman Torquil Campbell announced he'd completed a Trifecta (is that the word he used?), I thought he was going to talk about the fact that he played the Prospect Park bandshell and Central Park Summerstage in the same summer (and a third thing I guess). He went on to say it is was playing Summerstage, performing in Shakespeare in the Park (they're from Montreal, but used to live in Williamsburg), AND getting arrested for pot in the park - all in his lifetime. On a related note, the member Stars shares with Broken Social Scene also played Summerstage twice in one summer (and there was a pot arrest involved).
THIS ONE REALLY NEEDS A "WHAT'S THE CAPTION" CONTEST TOO
