St Vincent @ Central Park Summerstage
Stopped by from the park to catch Sunday’s last act on the Summerstage – St Vincent, the guitar playing singer-songwriter with a really dirty guitar sound (on what looks like a Fender Jazzmaster, or possibly a Harmony Bobcat), while the vocals are rather pure and airy. Was a nice show. She has pretty cool songs, great attitude and a really good band (strings and horns and all that). The event itself, Summerstage wasn’t crowded at all this Sunday. I was kind of surprised they took away my ginger ale at the gates, while they were actually selling booze inside.
Later on me and my friend tried to get in to MoMA Sculpure Garden to hear Don Byron with Jason Moran and Billy Hart, but since they moved the concert to much less roomy indoors (fearing rain – it didn’t rain though), cueing behind the doors even 45 minutes early didn’t help.
