Ted Leo & The Pharmacists To Headline 4Knots Music Festival Kickoff Show On July 9
In preparation for the brand-new 4Knots Music Festival on July 16, the Voice is holding a kickoff show at the South Street Seaport exactly one week before, on July 9. Headlining that free, all-ages show, which starts at 6 p.m., will be Ted Leo & The Pharmacists. Leo is, of course, fresh off covering Minor Threat for the Our Band Could Be Your Life tribute concert over the weekend; he played the 4Knots predecessor Siren in 2003 and last year; and he and the Seaport have quite the history, weather-and-concert-wise. After the jump, videos of Ted Leo & the Pharmacists playing the Seaport in 2003--during that summer's big blackout; the show was powered by a generator--and Siren in 2010.
"Stove By A Whale" (South Street Seaport blackout show, 2003)
"Where Have All The Rude Boys Gone" (Siren, 2010)
"The Mighty Sparrow"/"Sons Of Cain" (Siren, 2010)
