While New York’s parks lay dormant, Park Here gives bands a chance to rock out

Tuesday, four more acts rocked Openhouse’s pop-up park at 201 Mulberry St. Well, five if you count Doris Cellar’s impromptu performance outside Park Here. Rolling Stone’s RS Fest is like an outdoor summer music festival … except indoors in winter and with a much more intimate crowd. In a more beautiful setting and in the heart of New York City’s Nolita neighborhood. The RS Fest line up started with a set from Freelance Whales followed by Ximena Sarinana, Deer Tick and MNDR. Check out the pictures below, the Doris Cellar video and pics from Hacienda + Dawes who launched RS Fest last week.

Nothing says evening in the park like MNDR under the starlight.

While Governors Island, Summer Stage and Prospect Park lay dormant, some say Park Here is the greatest outdoor venue in the city.
