The Whitney Live series ended up being one of our favorite things about last summer—perfect for those Friday evenings when you could leave work, take a train up to the uncharted territories of the Upper East Side, watch a whole show, and still see daylight on your way back downtown. It proved to be no less grand this year, with a list of performers so on point we thought we'd curated it ourselves. We captured four different performances on camera, but we'll start you off with this ragtag bunch of local dudes and one ladydude. Darlings did a bang-up job of putting any highfalutin UES onlooker in their place and bringing the n-o-i-z-e. Watch the above vid and check the hair on that bassist! You can see them live tonight at Monster Island with Weekends, The Sundelles, and Philip Seymour Hoffman.
