A Bunch Of Bands, Including The Incredible Wye Oak, Are Playing At The U.S. Open


Those of you who’ve decided to take in some Grand Slam tennis in Queens over the coming weeks might be surprised by the fact that at certain times during the U.S. Open you can catch musicians and other artists performing on the grounds of the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center. Highlights include the stellar Baltimore duo Wye Oak, which performs on the grounds this Thursday at 6 p.m., former Railroad Jerk/White Hassle frontman Marcellus Hall, who takes the stage on Labor Day, and the soulful Yes In My Backyard alums Ava Luna. After the jump, a video of the “living statues” who will also be walking around the grounds in their bronzed/1930s-styled glory for your picture-taking convenience, provided that the weather doesn’t get so hot again that their body paint won’t melt off.
