LIVE: Panda Bear At Warsaw (5/18/14)

Comfy tee conditions in the mid-May twilight, authentic pierogies made to order, Zywiec flowing on tap. Prime conditions for a show at Greenpoint's Polish-National-Home-turned-music-venue, Warsaw.

The buzz of the amassing crowd's is palpable. It will soon be scorched through with endless lasers.
