The Mountain Goats will be at the East River tomorrow; more SummerStage on tap

SummerStage takes a break from Central Park tomorrow (Saturday!) for a performance by the Mountain Goats at the East River Park Amphitheater.

The indie vets are currently touring in support of their latest album (No. 17!!!) "In League With Dragons," released in April.

The free show is scheduled from 7-9 p.m. More details at this link.

There are two other performances set for the Amphitheater this weekend:

Elisa Monte Dance
Friday, Aug. 9, 7 p.m.

Eddie Palmieri, Baby Power, DJ Sonni
Sunday, Aug. 11, 6 p.m.

Given the city's stormproofing demolition plans for East River Park, these are likely the last shows here until at least 2024.

Each time I hear the name of a popular contemporary band, such as Mountain Goats, I go to apple music and check shit out.

I love a lot of music from 1990s and back. Can't live without it even. But there is something about the contemporary music I hear... I just don't get it. I am unable to get it, unable to enjoy any of this new stuff. To me it just sounds like something (huge) is missing. I can't articulate what it is though. Just goes in one ear, out the other.

Sorry you feel this way. I was born in the 1950's and love everything from Doo Wop to Genesis to The National, The Antlers nd The Mountain Goats. Have an open ear and mind...
