Ted Leo & the Pharmacists+Radio 4+Extra Golden


Brooklyn cul-de-rocker Radio 4 and Nairobi Afro-popsters Extra Golden support Ted Leo at second show of Hudson River Park’s free outdoor concert series, proving that summertime living should be easy. While Radio 4 meld their fiery post-punk guitars with the slight jangle of drums, Extra Golden are an authentic Pitchfork curiosity worth your attention. As for Leo, 2008’s Rapid Response proves he’s still doing his angry punk/Rude Boy shtick, a sound that is evolving into Bryan Adams territory with the radio-friendly single “I Got Your Number.”
