The final show of the RiverRocks series on Thursday, 11 August 2011, ended with some amazing bands at Pier 54 on the west side.
Opening up was New York’s Translations, with their 60s influenced guitar sounds warming up the youthful crowd. Next up was Worcester, Massachusetts’s Dom. Fans dawning fancy neon colored sunglasses were treated this evening to their their sunny, melodic, retro pop tunes, so perfect for the middle of summer, not the end. This is definitely a band worth checking out again. And how can you not dig a band who covered The Cure’s “Boys Don’t Cry” as exquisitely as they did? (Did I just use the word exquisite???)
Deer Tick’s folk, country, blues rock was embraced by kids who lined the barricades, singing along, gesturing emphatically, while emoting sheer ecstasy. It was one of those nights where the VIP section was actually packed. It was a great set with catchy hooks you could bounce too, as well.
Here are the videos. The first one is Deer Tick. The second video is Translations and Dom.
