WMC 2009: Late of the Pier, Rye Rye at The Vagabond

So after wrapping up a couple of feel-good stories about a female inmate being sexually assaulted by prison guards and the ridiculous shenanigans by some cops in a tiny place called Biscayne Park, I stepped out this past Friday to The Vagabond for a little Winter Music Conference R&R. 

There we caught stupendous live performances by English indie band Late of the Pier and underground rapper Rye Rye, who answered a few questions for Crossfade following her set.

Here we have footage of Late of the Pier killing it at The Vagabond's outdoor patio:

In this video, the party moves to The Vagabond's main room where Rye Rye shook the ground:

After her performance, Rye Rye answered a few questions about Winter Music Conference:
