With a name that sounds like a New Jersey construction company, Porter Block basks in the glory of his hometown at Rockwood Music Hall on Aug. 12. For his upcoming album, Gowanus Yacht Club, Porter assembled an army of local songwriters to help him compile a document of Brooklyn. The resulting collaboration feels like a guitar-filled party at your local pub.
