Pool Party Wrap
bright sunshiney day in Brooklyn last Sunday at the majestic McCarren Pool. i mistakenly claimed it to be our first public show (as opposed to a show we did a Pratt mid-90's) ever in Brooklyn, forgetting that yes, Coney Island (site of the Siren Festival we played a few years ago) is still in Brooklyn on most maps. +/- sounded great, Oakley Hall were massive, and both made great music to slip n'slide to. the day itself was so damn much fun that by the time we played our 4-yr old (who was tossed onto the slip n slide many times and oddly entranced by the air-filled helio advertising guys) couldn't take anymore fun and passed out during our set. some songs based on our "90's Chapel Hill sound" and "grunge pop" and "drawing heavily on Alternative Rock":
driveway to driveway, animated airplanes, package thief, seed toss, untied, misfits & mistakes, so convinced, european medicine, sick to move, kicked in, hellow hawk, punch me harder, slack. encore: throwing things, hyper enough, precision.
