Last Sunday brought some delightful indie rock vibes to a sunny day at the Stern Grove Festival.  Supergroup The New Pornographers headlined the event and were joined by Astronauts, etc. where the latter band played a piece written specifically for the festival. The New Pornographers delivered in typical excellent fashion, a varied set from their expanding canon of songs that culminated in a powerful encore with plenty of people standing at the front dancing and cheering to one of their finest songs. Set list below, along with some great photos from Patric Carver.
