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.
