As evident from our Free NYC Concert Preview, seeing great live music in the Big Apple doesn’t have to cost you a penny. Among the plethora of gratis shows around town mentioned was The Music In The Oval concert series taking place at Stuyvesant Town – the monstrous community of apartment buildings off of First Avenue that I call home. Over the last few years this normally wouldn’t have gotten my attention, but this year’s lineup looked like it was programmed by someone with my taste in music.
Among the bands that have played for the weird mix of families, curious by-standers and music fans was the local indie buzz act the Phenomenal Hand Clap Band. The band, which is more like a small gang boasting nine members, played their brand of psychedelic-disco-funk-rock and is a must see when you’re looking to dance the night away to some deep grooves. Want some evidence, check out their the video for You’ll Disappear…
The Phenomenal Hand Clap Band released their self-titled debut last week, and now head across the pond for a string of UK dates, while the Music In The Oval series continues through July 15.
