Gypsy Fall Guys

It was a hot summer afternoon making a cameo appearance for early Fall in New York City and the Joe's crew was making another day of it at the Delacorte.

"So this is where Shakespeare worked?" said one of the members of Beirut as they arrived for soundcheck.

Ashley joined me for the show later and this morning declared that it was the best time she has had since leaving Turkey for New York City. Last night she kept dancing and laughing and telling me all about how her uncle's wedding had the exact same music. She was especially fond of the New York Gypsy All-Stars Band and Balkan Beat Box.

"This music is the music of weddings and funerals!" she shouted over the sound of the crowd. I told her to keep it down, but she said being quiet during a concert was not the proper way to enjoy the experience.
