Here’s what some of our winners had to say about their favorite concerts of the week:
Alan: Gogol Bordello at Williamsburg Waterfront on July 30th
Friday night’s lineup at the Williamsburg Waterfront was stupendous. I’ve seen Les Claypool play with both of the other performers – Skerik as part of the Frog Brigade lineup and Gogol Bordello (and Kirk Hammett from Metallica) as the Superjam group at Bonnaroo in 2008 – but never with Primus. Although the Primus crowd was as violent as I’d feared, the music was spot on. I was also really pleased with how Gogol is sounding these days. A lot of their new tunes have an almost “Rage Against the Machine” quality to them.
Last week was exceptional for outdoor concerts. From Wayne Coyne from the Flaming Lips riding a bear in Summerstage to Les Claypool of Primus as a Mad Tatter from outer space on the Willamsburg Waterfront with the smooth baritone voice of Matt Berninger and the deep blues of the Black keys in between.
We’ve got some amazing prizes this week including CMJ badges and tickets to ZZ Top. So go to shows this week and post recaps on SuperGlued and keep on earning points!
