Chairlift show what Williamsburg is made of
It appears to be a reverse wealth situation in NY right with the real money on Williamsburg and not Manhattan. We're talking creative wealth of course...
Airlifted as opposed to chairlifted out of relative obscurity by Apple's Nano advert - the Williamsburg band Chairlift and ready to take a piece of the creative action around the world. Touring this summer (see the dates below - in the US they have NY dates with the Killers), Chairlift are riding the wave of Brooklyn's hot indie-pop and rock scene that gave birth to bands such as MGMT. See them play their cult track "Bruises" live at the recent SXSW festival.
