Saturday night The Morning Benders headlined the free Converse “Gone to Governors” concert series at The Beach on Governors Island.
Against the beautiful backdrop of the waterside beach, the quartet hit the stage after 10pm and played an easy breezy set that pleased the crowd. One special moment was when the band did a cover version of Fleetwood Mac’s awesome song “Dreams.”
Some photos from the gig:
Openers Freelance Whales and Wild Nothing did suitable sets. Freelance Whales has some pretty nice harmonies and cute pop songs that I could totally working for a youthful car commercial. Wild Nothing seem to be riding high on the chillwave… any predictions on how long they’ll be able to hold their momentum?
