Cheers Elephant plays rooftop set for Paste Magazine

photo_3314_0Invited to Paste Live Sessions NYC, Philly group Cheers Elephant took to the sky for a rooftop performance in Brooklyn. Even with the bare bones set-up, the local quartet made sure residents of the southernmost borough could hear their psychedelic pop-rock loud and clear. Check out the video from the live session of Cheers Elephant’s “Leaves,” a spunky track that has been featured on NPR and Spotify. After a brilliant set at City Hall Presents summer concert series, Cheers Elephant will play a few more local shows this summer — stopping at MilkBoy on July 20th and participating in the second annual Brandywine Folk Festival on August 24th.
