Cut Copy at the Prospect Park Bandshell

Unbeknownst to me when I wrote about them three weeks ago, the Australian dance-pop band Cut Copy played an outdoor concert in Prospect Park this past week as part of the Celebrate Brooklyn concert series.

The videos that have been posted to YouTube are of variable length and quality; unfortunately, most of the videos that show an entire song from start to finish have poor sound quality. This clip, featuring most of "Lights and Music," seems to capture the energy of the show. The enthusiasm and audience participation is good to see -- even in a irony-heavy place like Brooklyn, Cut Copy, like Phoenix and Robyn and a select few others, can inspire the sort of unbridled enthusiasm that the cool kids are normally too self-conscious (-ly hip?) to exhibit.
