Ted Leo and the Pharmacists To Kick Off 4Knots Music Festival
Presented by The Village Voice and Seaport Music Festival, the free show marks Leo's return to the Pier 17 stage where he has appeared many times, including an impromptu skateboarding demo during a torrential downpour, and the improbable generator powered show of the 2003 blackout.
"We're thrilled to announce that Ted Leo will launch the first 4Knots Music Festival Kick Off Show," remarked Village Voice publisher Josh Fromson. "I truly can't think of a better fit to welcome us to the Seaport."
The Village Voice launches the inaugural 4Knots Music Festival the following week on Saturday July 16th at the South Street Seaport. The free festival is open to all ages, and will be held rain or shine.
