Matt Pond PA performs for BalconyTV

Great news: Today we launched a partnership with BalconyTV, a video series that captures artists playing alfresco sets around the globe. (Think Mumford & Sons in Dublin and Edward Sharpe in Auckland, New Zealand.) We’ll post a new vid each week (mostly shot on a rooftop above the End recording studio in Greenpoint, Brooklyn), so keep an eye out on the blog or our BalconyTV homepage. In the meantime, check out local indie-rock crew Matt Pond PA perform an early-evening gig just off the East River below—or any of these other 17 sets.
