Thee Oh Sees, Golden Triangle, and So Cow South Street Seaport Friday, July 16
Well, it wasn't a Drake show: Friday's free South Street Seaport indie-garage line-up--Thee Oh Sees, Golden Triangle, So Cow--had a noticeable absence of thrown chairs, flying potted plants, and tear gas. Set against the backdrop of the Seaport, with its ironic juxtaposition of Goonies-style ships and mall-style restaurants, the three bands contended not with riot police but the sun, which was brutal. Ireland's finest, So Cow, took the stage first; following the fast-paced and tightly wound threesome was Brooklyn's Golden Triangle, a six-piece with a penchant for tambourines and dramatic dancing. Thee Oh Sees, from San Francisco, closed the night with their particular brand of spastic, experimental rock.
An early arrival finds time for reading.

Yeah, it was hot.
