Beach, sun and… CONCERTS. There is probably no better way to get the Memorial Day Weekend festivities started, here in the US!
On Saturday May 23th, the Riis Park Bazaar, an open-air festival, took place at Rockaway Beach (South of Brooklyn) and we were there! In fact, thanks to the “Bandsintown” application, I learned a few days before the event that the band MOTHXR was in the line-up. More than willing to discover them live, I hit the road, on this very sunny day, Iphone and sunglasses in hands.
Around 2 PM, we arrived and discovered a half-empty but peaceful beach, bordered by trees and children playgrounds. This looked like the ideal setting to enjoy some time away from the “Big Apple”. With the biggest smile on our faces, we walked to the venue: a small white tent, only a few feet away from the sand, providing an intimate and warm atmosphere.
Following three different and colorful performances, the band MOTHXR finally came on stage, leaded by Penn Badgley, who is particularly known for his recurrent role in the show “Gossip Girl”. From the first notes played, we were compelled by the band’s well-defined musical world. Blues, Electro and Pop: three musical styles smoothly mixed together, carried by a solid instrumentation and a particularly authentic and singular voice. Definitely keep their name in mind, they are going to make you fall in love with them!
I have a little secret to share with the people living in Paris: Penn Badgley told us that the band will be back in November for a concert!
See you soon on another adventure
