Band Of Horses headline free Brooklyn show

Openers Oxford Collapse are joined by a special guest

Band Of Horses headline free Brooklyn show
Band Of Horses, Annuals and Oxford Collapse played the fifth Jelly NYC Pool Party at McCarren Pool in Brooklyn yesterday (July 22).

Sub Pop’s Oxford Collapse opened the show in late afternoon, and were joined late in their set on percussion by Keith Murray of We Are Scientists, while North Carolina’s Annuals competed with water slides and long beer lines to hold onto the crowd.

Despite muffled sound during their set, South Carolina headliners Band Of Horses thrilled the 3,000 strong crowd with previews of tracks from soon-to-be-released ‘Cease To Begin’ as well as a cover of the Mick Jagger and Keith Richards-penned song ‘Act Together’.

Several local musicians watched the show including Grizzly Bear, while members of Foals and Editors were also spotted.

The pool parties continue next Sunday with headliners TV On The Radio supported by Celebration, Miles Benjamin and Anthony Robinson.
