The South Street Seaport was a staple of the past summer, as it's been for much of the last three years. The atmosphere is incredible - it's a tremendous way to give everyone a reason to come downtown, indicative of the continued transformation of Lower Manhattan, and the city as a whole. Huge credit to the civic groups and, yes, corporate sponsors, who make it possible.
The Friday before the 4th of July, I made my way down to see Beach Fossils and Woven Bones (headliner YellowFever was unable to make it at the last moment), and as usual, it was a great night: jangly guitars under a darkening sky, the East River breeze teasing the air.
A couple months after the show, Beach Fossils played a Daytrotter Session, which you can find here. Rest of the photos after the jump.
