Brooklyn, NY's McCarren Park Pool may be empty, but that didn't keep fans from getting absolutely soaking wet Sunday (June 29), as throngs braved pounding thunderstorms to catch razor-sharp punk outfit the Loved Ones and Brooklyn's own the Hold Steady play the first of nine, free Sunday shows in JellyNYC's Pool Parties series.
Watch highlights of the bands' sets below, including footage of Philadelphia's the Loved Ones running through buzz-saw anthem "Breathe In," off 2006's Keep Your Heart, and the Hold Steady strutting through the Boys and Girls in America gem "Chips Ahoy!" and the hard-chugging "Magazines," a new tune off the quintet's upcoming record, Stay Positive.
Check back throughout the summer for more live performances from the Pool Parties, and watch our coverage from last year's festivities here!
