Thao & The Get Down Stay Down

The New Pornographers played a free Celebrate Brooklyn! show at Prospect Park Bandshell on Saturday (7/11). The last time they did this was in 2005, part of a Canada Day celebration. Frontman AC Newman noted how that show changed the course of his life in that he met his wife at it. "I have no idea where I'd be now if I hadn't played that show." It was a perfect night, weather-wise, and the bandshell couldn't have been more packed. Unfortunately the lineup this time didn't include either Neko Case or Dan Bejar (we were spoiled on last year's tour) but they were still great, playing a generous 22-song set. Thao & the Get Down Stay Down were well-matched openers for NPs, making for a lovely evening in Prospect Park. Pictures from the night, plus New Pornographers' setlist, are in this post.

This weekend New Pornographers will be in Chicago for Pitchfork Fest. More pics from Prospect Park below...
