It's 9:45 on Friday night (Oct. 2) and the crowd at Music Hall of Williamsburg is getting antsy. The room, only half full 30 minutes prior, is now packed shoulder-to-shoulder with a slew of hipster Brooklynites standing in anticipation. The cold, rainy evening outside, though, does not stop the house from voicing drawn out hollers when Chaz Bundick of Toro y Moi enters the stage.
Clad in all-white, a plain t-shirt and corduroys, Bundick is endearing in his refreshingly simple aesthetic. In fact, he's not even wearing shoes. Behind his signature clear glasses, he smiles and voices how excited he is to be in New York. A South Carolina native-turned-Los Angelino, Bundick fits right in amongst the crowd tonight.
