Back in September of 2014, Julian Casablancas and the Voidz played a secret show at Shea Stadium in Brooklyn. Big Ups and Blood Orange opened. I never posted all of my pictures from that show, until now. When I finally remembered to update my wordpress. Enjoy. 🙂
None of these pictures are cropped or color edited, just re-sized cause it’s a lazy Sunday people. So I apologize if you don’t have a Mac and the pictures don’t automatically look gorgeous on your computer. All three bands were fantastic, and Brooklyn Bowl, I just have to say, beautiful stage lighting. Best and easiest show I’ve shot in a while. That’s it, that’s as much as I can say right now. I had home fries with my breakfast and I just want to take a nap. If you’re a fan or went to the show, feel free to comment about it below.
Can’t remember who the first band was. The second band was Cults, *groan*.
So, Foster The People. Is it just me or did they just sneak attack into the music scene out of left field? Just me? Ok, cause I don’t listen to the radio or watch music videos and I don’t troll music blogs like a music news junkie. I’m the complete opposite of a hipster, I find out about bands after everyone and their grandmother has heard of them. I had never heard of them or their song Pumped Up Kicks up until about 5 weeks ago when I was on a little weekend getaway with my friends and completely at the mercy of their iPods. There was a lot of Katy Perry and some other stuff, then my friend played Pumped Up Kicks. It didn’t strike me, but it was a cool song.
Let’s pretend they didn’t have an opening band.
I’ve heard of The Rapture over the years, but I’ve never listened to their music. How is that possible you ask? Do you live in a cave Roselyn? In a way I do. Stephanie told me we had to go to this show, so of course I went and wow. Wow. wOw. She told me they’ve had better crowds, which is cool, but I didn’t really care cause I was blown away before they were halfway into the first song on their setlist, In The Grace of Your Love. I bought their latest album of the same name right after the show, it’s a great album, but you have to see this band live. See them. This is one of those bands where a recording just isn’t enough.
I was really lazy about this, just never got around to it until now. This was a fantastic show, both openers were great, which was a nice surprise since opening bands are usually awful and painful to sit through. A few pictures below, I wasn’t trying too hard at this show, just wanted to enjoy it. And I had the tallest men in the world right in front of me.
