Summerstage in Central Park is an awesome free way to enjoy your fave bands …for those willing to line up 4 hours early in hopes of cramming into the stage area.
Otherwise you can be lazy like me and just set up camp right outside the stage and maybe kick back a few beers that a guy is selling out of his back-pack. Also popular were these magical balloons that seemed to be in high demand among the XX crowd. hmm
I spent 2$ total all night. On what you ask? I had an emergency pee-pee attack right before XX was coming on. A bicycle rick-shaw guy saw the panic on my face and offered to shuttle me to a bathroom halfway across Central Park…I offer him 2$. The bathroom, turns out, is closed. I run back towards Summer Stage…and on the way spot a nice looking bush…I crouch into its shadow, just to hear the XX starting its famous “Crystalised” .. FAIL.
anyway, all in all a good time. Get your lazy butt to a Summerstage concert before the summer be over.
