All Points West 2009 - Day 1

For his opening song, Jay-Z paid respect by opening to the Beastie Boys's classic record, "No Sleep 'Til Brooklyn."

"Everybody just started going nuts as soon as they heard the guitars," recalls Lamont Caldwell, a touring saxophonist for Jay's live band. "He's like, 'If the audience was looking for the Beastie Boys, I'ma give them a little bit of the Beastie Boys.' That's completely selfless."...

"One thing about playing with Jay is that he knows how to put on a show," Caldwell said. "After being in the business for so long, he knows how to keep people entertained."

Surprise guest Memphis Bleek played hypeman for much of the set, while Q-Tip, Organized Konfusion and the Pharcyde performed earlier in the day." [XXLMag]

how are these "outtakes"?

Another great set of pictures! Considering the conditions, things at this festival went surprisingly well. I also think that the rain made for a sense of comraderie and unity amongst the attendees. Here's to a even bigger and better APW in 2010!

Jay Z singing Beastie Boys was sooo painful- it was horrible. Black people should just stop trying to Rap already
