Led Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant
ended his North American tour in Brooklyn on Saturday night, attracting young fans and aging hippies to the Celebrate Brooklyn! benefit show. Plant was backed by his band the Sensational Space Shifters, who have been on tour with him since last year. Along with Plant’s original material, the band revamped Led Zep classics like “Black Dog” and “Rock And Roll” as they gyrated around the stage surrounded by plumes of smoke.
Opening for Plant was Brooklyn-based folk-pop band Phosphorescent
, a.k.a. Matthew Houck, who held his own on the massive muraled stage. His sixth LP, Muchacho
, was released this past March. Our photographer Adela Loconte
was in the crowd, taking it all in through a camera lens.
