I was curious to see how Gang Gang Dance would present their edgy mix of dance and more experimental electronica at the outdoor Prospect Park Bandshell for Celebrate Brooklyn. The answer was: convincingly. Gang Gang Dance's set featured keening, alien vocal lines soaring over choppy keyboards, rhythmic samples and glitches, and two live drummer/percussionists. Although their first song had a hint of a Bollywood rhythm, much of their set looked back to an early generation of electronic rockers: Songs were connected by long, flowing musical textures reminiscent of Tangerine Dream, Klaus Schulze, and Vangelis.
