Band members from established bands (lead singer Nathan Willett and bassist Matt Maust of Cold War Kids, and drummer Nathan Warketin of We Barbarians) were struck like a bolt of lightning in front of a store in Brooklyn. They had to be exorcised, by writing and recording in between shows with their original bands and doing quick live takes that had no seconds to spare.

LOCAL NATIVES PLAYED GOVERNORS ISLAND

4 years ago by Eric Weiner

Governor’s Island has distinguished itself as one of New York’s premier summer venues.  It’s one of my new favorites, but mostly due to the types of acts they’ve been able to play host to.  Local Natives, Alberta Cross, Portugal.The Man, She & Him, Dr. Dog, Grizzly Bear, Neon Indian, and more have all hit/will be hitting this glorious stage.  Now to last Saturday’s show: Local Natives with special guests Young Man and We Barbarians.  Having already partaken in the experience know as a Local Natives gig, I knew what was coming.  Hard hitting
