Grooving through "Wait for a Minute," "Powa," "Es-so," "Sink-O," "Real Thing," "Look Around," and "Stop That Man," tUnE-yArDs never ended up quite where they started. Some ideas trailed away to crazy places - like in "Sink-O," where Garbus breezes through the words, "Peace, peace and love, love is waiting for the feeling of discomfort to pass before killing." Wait, what?
No emotion was off limits, and there was no way of guessing what came next. All you could do was give in. So 10,000 people gave in together, arms in the air, bodies swaying in the darkness. tUnE-yArDs closed in total brilliance with "Water Fountain," "Bizness," and "Left Behind," and the whole park moved like an insatiable beast. - [Pancakes and Whiskey]
It was the final free show of Celebrate Brooklyn's 2015 season in Prospect Park on Saturday (8/8), with tUnE-yArDs packing the bandshell. Shabazz Palaces, who opened the night and played a headlining Brooklyn show earlier in the week, joined Merrill Garbus and company for "Sink-O" and "Bizness." (tUnE-yArDs also played the Montauk Surf Club on Sunday.) Pictures from Saturday's night's show, and tUnE-yArDs' setlist, are in this post.
Celebrate Brooklyn! has one last show to go in 2015 -- the sold-out Willie Nelson & Family show on Wednesday (8/12) with Old Crow Medicine Show. More pics of tUnE-yArDs and Shabazz Palaces, below...
