The Kooks, Atlas Genius: Central Park Summerstage


Pop-Break Live: The Kooks, Atlas Genius at Central Park Summerstage’s Saidy Lopez journeyed to a venue that is truly one of the most exquisite summer spots in New York City – Central Park Summerstage. The sprawling green space, the bustle of New York City, the iconic skyline, and the sounds of rock ‘n’ roll piercing the atmosphere is pure perfection.

In Central Park, we caught Atlas Genius and The Kooks splitting a bill of alt rock excellence. Atlas Genius, whose new record Inanimate Objects drops on August 28, wowed us with their break-out hit, ‘Trojans’ and performed that song along with cuts off the new record. The Kooks, on the other hand, well we just love shooting this band. We recently caught up with them earlier this summer at The Stone Pony Summerstage and we just couldn’t pass up on the opportunity to see them kill it in New York City.
