Brooklyn’s The Pains of Being Pure At Heart played a big headlining gig with Za Za and Ribbons at the South Street Seaport (part of the Seaport Music Series at the River to River Festival) on Friday night and TPOBPAH superfan Bill reports that it was one of their best:

Fast-forward a year later and the Pains are headlining a show at the Seaport and it’s as packed as I’ve ever seen it, rivalling that Animal Collective show two years ago. The weather is perfect mind you, but people are there to see them. And they just sound amazing — the songs roar, the band is tight, you can actually hear Peggy’s keyboards and Kip has become a confident singer. Ripping through their set with nary a word in between songs, the crowd bobs and everyone’s smiling. The band is smiling too. They are having fun. The new songs are good. While I can’t see them ever dethroning Linkin Park or The Black Eyed Peas from the Billboard charts, tonight, the Pains make it seem like anything’s possible. [Soundbites]
