"6. Z100 will be giving away tickets to see the Broadway musical Chicago over at their tent."
irrelevant cultural duo!
Lauren, I disagree with one point there. 2009 was the year of weird bands making vastly more accessible albums - Grizzly Bear, Dirty Projectors, and Animal Collective. I think they pretty intentionally made an album with brighter pop because they saw that they could catalyze a moment of music that had bubbled up in collective music subconscious. the same moment that a bunch of other musicians grasped. Right before the dull ebb of the chillwave rolled in...
But yes, throughout the show I explained several times that they're a band who can confidently play whatever show they want to play, and that's pretty amazing and sorta funny.
Also, my friend who was bartending one of the tents told me they played My Girls in the soundcheck. All I really wanted was to hear Reverend Green.
I feel ya, but I still wanted a little bit more of a satisfying bit of excitement. Perhaps I would have been satisfied by two more big fun 'hits'.
And for the record, I think I adequately set my expectations for a jammy, weird show ahead of time, I like Animal Collective pre-Merriweather, and I am no 'bro'.
Regardless, this review gave me much to reflect on, thank you.
you guys have a funny relationship with the Brooklyn Paper.
the music performances included a huge amount of confetti. essentially, we danced in a snow globe.

Doesn't seem like these shows are selling fast at all. I went to buy tix at 9:15 and got right through, got two tickets, done. I hope it's an intimate, sparsely attended show!
His opposition to pedestrian safety measures is also worth noting: http://www.streetsblog.org/2010/12/01/dov-…
