Photos by Brian Berson

We last caught Kurt Vile last year when he performed at Brooklyn Steel in support of his 2018 album Bottle It In (released via Matador Records).

Vile and the Violators has been touring hard in support of the album, which brought him back to New York on July 25th for a performance at Summerstage in Central Park. The show was a great triple bill that featured opening sets from both Dinosaur Jr. and Cate Le Bon, who we just caught last month at Elsewhere.

Our photographer Brian Berson was there to capture photos from all three performances, all of which can be found posted in the gallery below, along with Vile and Dinosaur Jr.’s setlist.
