On August 24, 2012, I saw The Wanted perform in Central Park as part of Good Morning America’s Summer Concert Series. Thanks to My Free Concert NYC for the hookup! If you want to see more pix, tell me your favorite member of The Wanted or just leave me some love in the comments section!
My 6th grade fantasy has come true! I got to see Salt-N-Pepa perform their classic song “Push It” as they performed as part of Summerstage’s free concert series in Central Park on August 12, 2012. Special thanks to Wil for the VIP backstage pass hookup! This video is shot from the side of the stage and lots of excited Salt-N-Pepa fans were up in my grill, but you’ll get the gist, methinks!
You can see photos of the lovely and extremely cool Salt-N-Pepa after the jump.
The blind duo from Mali, Amadou and Miriam were in New York to play to an extremely crowded free concert at Summer Stage in Central Park on August 4, 2012. I was fortunate to meet them backstage once the show was over. Although the band is huge all over the world, this experience was my first exposure to their music. Obviously I’ve been asleep as Amadou and Miriam have collaborated or toured with the likes of Blur, Coldplay, U2 and Scissor Sisters, who are some of my favorites. Well the situation is remedied now and if this your first exposure to Amadou and Miriam, you can check out their music on their official site! Thanks again Amadou and Miriam!
On July 21, 2012, Brazilian Bossa Nova singer Bebel Gilberto headlined a free show at Central Park’s Summerstage in New York. Every weekend during the summer, Central Park hosts a different show and they are never disappointing. In addition to Bebel’s chill out vibe, the weather in New York was absolutely perfect! Typically it’s hot, muggy and steamy but for Bebel’s show, there was a nice breeze and I had such a great time. You can sample through some of Bebel Gilberto’s music on her official site and I recommend it!
I was hanging out backstage and after the show, Bebel worked it in front of the step and repeat!
