    Fri 8 Aug – All Points West Music & Arts Festival



    Okay, okay, okay, so this isn't really a review of Day 1 of the All Points West festival, it is an incredibly drawn out and exaggerated moment, BUT keep in mind that it's taken me awhile to write this and I didn't exactly remember everything clearly.

    We (me, my sister, my mom, and my uncle) got there around 5-ish, just in time to walk past Duffy's set. For God's sake people, she was seperated from Alvin & the Chipmunks at birth. There must be a helium tank at hand whenever she performs. We headed over to the big stage, or the Blue Comet, as it was called for some reason, to see the New Pornographers. They were really good, even though the only song I knew was that one that's on that car commercial.

    This is where I get all jumpy.

    My uncle, through a friend, managed to get us (me and my sister) back stage in the middle of there performance. We were standing backstage, looking all cool, watching the show…

    Artist: Metric

    I wasn't able to catch Metric's full performance, but all I cared for was hearing "Combat Baby." When I got to the stage, the band was playing "Handshakes." It was mostly the girls in the audience who were really moving around to the music. But there were guys, too. Emily Haines was sporting a gold dress-like outfit. I have to say, she's pretty energetic on stage. From what I was able to see, Metric's performance at APW was a lively one, and I think the effort to making it was shown.

    Of course, when "Combat Baby" began to play, Emily Haines wasn't the only one to start singing. The crowd joined in. I was looking forward to hear this song in particular because users on YouTube post videos that seem pretty good as live acts, so I wanted to see it for myself. The song was great live, and I believe "Calculation Theme" followed.

    Fri 8 Aug – All Points West Music & Arts Festival

    Artist: Grizzly Bear

    Part of the crowd that watched Grizzly Bear perform was part of the crowd who watched Girl Talk. From what I saw when I was heading over to the main stage to catch Radiohead, those fans were having a lot of fun. Girl Talk’s audience was fairly young, and he invited people to dance on stage. Beach balls were being thrown around, and you could just sense the hype and energy of the crowd.

    But that was Girl Talk. I’m going to talk about Grizzly Bear.

    I’m not exactly a fan of Grizzly Bear. The only songs I know of them are “Knives” and “Easier,” which makes me far from a fan. However, from what I saw when I watched them play, I could tell that there’s good musicianship involved when working as an entire group. The crowd they performed for had a bit too much energy for the songs they were playing, I’d say, but overall, it’s not like it was a boring set.

    honestly, i had no interest in attending to All Points West Festival. the only thing that could have possibly attracted me was Radiohead. yet even THEY couldn't suffice, i thought. the ticket prices were ridiculous. the "rules" of festival, just as well. (no SLR cameras, no camelpacks, NO this, NO that) so i said hell w/ it, and my mind was made. soon after, the tickets went on sale. nothing changed on my part.. until i got a phone call from a dear friend, informing me with the news of his up coming attendance to APW with his 3 other friends who will travel overseas to join him. i was obviously put on the spot by this: here is me, living in new york city, shamelessly lazy -and stingy-, and cannot be bothered to go to a day long festival. and here are 4 dudes, 3 of them flying international to get there and the other one taking the train from another state.. needless to say, i had to do something. so i said to my friend, why yes i will join y'all on one of the Radiohead days. …
  • All Points West : Day 1

    This past Friday (August 8th) I had the pleasure of attending the first day of the All Points West Festival at Liberty State Park, NJ with the wife and mr. jpsykes. I haven’t been to a festival (much less a concert for adults) in quite some time, so I was pretty excited to go. Of course that excitement level was cranked up a few notches since both Underworld and Radiohead were playing, back to back no less.

    APW was being promoted as a sort of “green” festival. Attendees were encouraged to use mass transit and if you wanted to drive you had to obtain a special carpool permit. We had opted for the ferry route. But since we were coming for southern Jersey, our trip consisted of 1 hour car ride, 40 minute ferry ride and yet another 15 minute ferry ride. From what I’ve read by other attendees, the ferry was the way to go.

    Aside from a couple 5 - 10 minute rain showers, the weather was perfect. …
