Brooklyn-based indie rock bands Phosphorescent and The Antlers, along with L.A.’s Dawes and Atlanta’s Deerhunter are slated to headline the 12th annual Hudson River Park’s RiverRocks summer concert series on Pier 54 in Hudson River Park.
Hudson River Park’s RiverRocks free summer concerts, on Pier 54 in New York City, begin July 8.
The free outdoor concert series kicks off Thursday, July 8, with the infectious indie folk/alt country band Phosphorescent on a co-bill with the “authentically vintage” sounding L.A.-based Dawes.
The Antlers, the meteoric post-rock artists take the stage Thursday, July 22, with fellow Brooklyn-based Dinosaur Feathers and its tropical surf pop sound opening the show.
RiverRocks concludes the 2010 summer season on Thursday, August 12, with Atlanta’s Deerhunter, led by Bradford Cox — among the most talented and hardest working indie artists in the business. Opening for Deerhunter is Brooklyn’s Real Estate.
RiverRocks is Hudson River Park’s signature concert series staged on the Pier 54 waterfront adjacent to New York City’s Meatpacking District (at 14th Street). With the setting sun and the Hudson River serving as the backdrop, each show is expected to draw capacity audiences.
Gates open at 6 p.m. for all RiverRocks shows, which are scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. More information is available at www.riverrocksnyc.com.
Hudson River Park is a 550-acre, 5-mile-long waterfront park stretching from Battery Place at the southern tip of Manhattan all the way up to 59th Street along the Hudson River (www.hudsonriverpark.org).
