The Giraffes, Live Photos from Sunnyvale (Brooklyn, NY)

The Giraffes

Like beer? Like whiskey? Like walking away from a show drenched in both? It’s The Giraffes, alumni of the Royal Flush magazine “book release” parties, and it’s a fucking good time. Singer Aaron Lazar wore it all in style: black suit with tie, alcohol, nicotine, and sweat. Passionate fans moshed, drank streams of Jameson Whiskey poured out by the band, and tossed beer at the stage (a welcome tradition at these shows). This all went down last Saturday during the 2016 Northside Festival at Sunnyvale, a venue named after the locale from “Trailer Park Boys,” in the barren streets of Brooklyn’s Bushwick neighborhood, and down the block from the strip club Pumps. This, readers, was the perfect setting for the perfect dirty rock show. Enjoy the photos.
