Todd Barry performed, so that revised schedule is not completely accurate.

Nobody cares about any of the shit canceled anyway, so that works out pretty well.

Posted by Anonymous | August 2, 2009 5:38 PM

Though this was probably a pretty big gig for some of those bands-- Kitty, Daisy and Lewis are here from the UK, and it seems like a lot of people actually wanted to see Steel Train.

Posted by Anonymous | August 2, 2009 5:39 PM

People care about Gaslight Anthem. They should have let them play instead of "Hey Champ".

Posted by Anonymous | August 2, 2009 5:40 PM

I love how its a NJ festival and they cancel both of the bands that actually represent the state.

Posted by Anonymous | August 2, 2009 5:41 PM

Hey Champ is the APW organizers' band. They're playing no matter what.

THIS FEST IS FUCKED.

ALL POINTS FAIL - FOR REALZ

They cancelled Gaslight Anthem? In their own backyard? That's a no-no. There's going to be hell to pay in NJ!

Posted by dee | August 2, 2009 5:47 PM

I bet more people care about Gaslight than Echo and the Bunnymen

Posted by Anonymous | August 2, 2009 5:48 PM

I say All Points BEST. So there.

Posted by Anonymous | August 2, 2009 5:48 PM

Agreed, the Gaslight cancellation (if true) was not a smart idea in NJ.

Posted by Matt | August 2, 2009 5:49 PM

Well maybe they said "gee, do we cancel the tugjobs from NJ or the band that came here from overseas?" and made an obvious decision.

Posted by Anonymous | August 2, 2009 5:50 PM

If this is ALL POINTS BEST? Then I def ain't going back. - APW is SHITTY

All Points NOT BAD

I hope the canceled bands are getting paid.

Posted by Anonymous | August 2, 2009 5:56 PM

I can't imagine why that's something you'd be concerned about.

Also, it's probably safe to assume the bands are covered in event of cancellation.

Posted by Anonymous | August 2, 2009 5:58 PM

ALL POINTS not very fucking good either.

Posted by Anonymous | August 2, 2009 5:58 PM

How about All Points NOT WORTH THE FUCKING MONEY?

Posted by Anonymous | August 2, 2009 5:59 PM

How about All Points NOT NECESSARILY CHEAP BUT A DECENT VALUE CONSIDERING THE AMOUNT OF BANDS PLAYING AND WOULD ALSO BE HELPED BY ALLOWING PEOPLE TO DRINK OUTSIDE OF THE DESIGNATED DRINKING AREAS?

WHAT TIME DOES COLDPLAY COME ON??

How about All Points THERE'S TOO MANY THINGS WRONG WITH THIS FESTIVAL THAT NOT EVEN A GOOD LINE UP CAN SAVE?

CAN IT BE THAT THE BAND BEFORE COLDPLAY IS COMING ON AT 11:15... THAT WOULD MAKE COLDPLAY COME ON AFTER... THATS CRAZY ANYBODY KNOW WHAT TIME FOR SURE??

Posted by Anonymous | August 2, 2009 6:06 PM

did anyone else just get the email from goldenvoice about steel train and the gaslight anthem being moved to brooklyn bowl? per the email, doors are at 4am and the first band hits at 5am, but you'll need an all points west sunday stub in order to get in and capacity is limited to about 600.

Posted by Anonymous | August 2, 2009 6:06 PM

Gwyneth Paltrow hates the rain so Coldplay cancelled. Chris Martin will be playing a free show at the Williamsburg Waterfront if he can sneak out of their hotel by 8pm.

Posted by Anonymous | August 2, 2009 6:11 PM

it seems Coldplay is indeed coming on at midnight - but I've also heard their set has been cut down. Who the fuck knows - APW is the worst run festival in terms of letting people know what the fuck is going on, jesus people there is this internet thingy.

POOR show fucktards.

We'll see how this goes.

I HAVE A TICKET AND DONT FEEL LIKE GOING NOW

ANYBODY HAVE MORE INFO???

Posted by Guy That Absolutely Doesn't Work For APW! Honest! | August 2, 2009 6:16 PM

That question you ask - is the muthafuckin point - no one knows shit because this festival SUCKS MONKEY BALLZ

Posted by Anonymous | August 2, 2009 6:17 PM

Echo and the bunnymen's stream starts at 11:15 - it looks like they are still on the main stage - so that means Coldplay goes on after - you figure a shortened Bunnymen set would still put Coldplay on at midnight at the earliest.

This festival is awful in every way

Posted by Anonymous | August 2, 2009 6:18 PM

I have it on good authority that this festival DOES NOT in fact suck monkey ballz.

Posted by Guy That Absolutely Doesn't Work For APW | August 2, 2009 6:19 PM

I just heard - thru twitter (so take with grian of salt) that COLDPLAY is to go on somewhere between 11:55pm and 12:20 am!!!!

Jesus.

Posted by Anonymous | August 2, 2009 6:22 PM

Dear Guy That Absolutely Doesn't Work For APW;

you obviously don't go to other festivals. Because if you did - you see how a real festival is run. APW is not very good plain and simple - I even had fun there last year - but this festival is poorly run and has far too many negatives about it.

All the hate is coming out from all of those things.

is it true that coldplay wont start their set until 1145pm? anybody know

Posted by Anonymous | August 2, 2009 6:24 PM

The schedule that I posted is correct give or take the usual slight delays). The stream is not live. Please stop saying that Coldplay goes on at midnight. Thanks.

9:15

Posted by Anonymous | August 2, 2009 6:27 PM

Silversun Pickups apparently came out at 5, so Coldplay will be on at 9:15.

Posted by Anonymous | August 2, 2009 6:27 PM

9:115 - but you should be there already - it's a festival for christ sake.

Plus Echo own Coldplay,

Posted by Anonymous | August 2, 2009 6:28 PM

Have any of the idiots basing things on the the "live stream" set times noticed that almost every band they are streaming today PLAYED YESTERDAY.

Posted by Anonymous | August 2, 2009 6:28 PM

I noticed that - and also noticed that is another check in the fail column for APW.

Stream like Coachella and Lolla you idiots.

i took that 88 bucks and spent it on depeche mode
this fest should move to september

Posted by toast | August 2, 2009 6:45 PM

i bought a ticket for $50 on Friday. Got to see the Saturday show for free. Snuck in weed, whiskey and a cheeseburger. Started making out with drunk girls during Jay-Z and the Ting Tings.

I don't know about you guys, but I had fun at All Points West.
I for one hope it comes back next year.

How is not paying 8 dollars for a beer in a jail, paying 1/4 of the ticket price, not paying 10 dollars for shitty festival food, getting stoned and kissing cute girls and ACTUALLY HAVING FUN douchey?

You must be a barrel of laughs.

rightfully so - fuck these taking/texting fucks at gigs - I am sooooo tired of it - watch the fucking gig for a change.

PT Walkley did play a short set that was fantastic. He got the festival crowd singing along on "Somebody"... very special moment- it smelled there though....

pt walkley grew an attitude after he found a manager. if he was going to get signed it would have happened already.

Posted by Anonymous | August 3, 2009 2:59 AM

Maybe the next Gaslight Anthem album should have some shitty electro-dance beats on it so it isn't cool to hate on them in Brooklyn anymore. I mean it's not like THOSE bands are a dime-a-dozen or anything...

Posted by Anonymous | August 3, 2009 8:29 AM

haha, hey now! thats not a very nice thing to write, i read this thing ya know :)

anyway, I had a great time playing yesterday, albeit a shortened set. it was a long and muddy one, but i am glad people got to hear some music.

have a great week everybody.

Posted by Anonymous | August 3, 2009 8:39 AM

That was absolutely disgusting. The person who posted that APW smelled like a horse's ass was dead on. I went for silversun and elbow, saw them (elbow almost made the day worth it, if anything could have) and left. Even Black Keys or Ghostland Observatory wasn't enough to keep putting up with that crap (literally).

Posted by hipster replacement | August 3, 2009 8:52 AM

I dont know if it was imagination or what but I still smelled that sick disgusting smell this morning on the subway. Pictures only tell half the story, the other half was that shitty rotten smell of that mud. Also I kid yuopu not people were standing in ankle deep sewage water and mud for MGMT. THey should all take us out to dinner for putting up with those conditions.

Posted by Anonymous | August 3, 2009 9:00 AM

the reason for that smell is because the site of the festival was once a sewer treatment center... the largest one on the eastern seaboard actually.

Posted by the man with the mustache | August 3, 2009 9:10 AM

Wow, I'm glad I didn't go yesterday based on those comments

Posted by Anonymous | August 3, 2009 9:48 AM

Yesterday was a fucking blast...all you pussies whining about the mud and the smell, go fuck off. You knew what you were getting into. What did you do? Go, so you could bitch-log about it today?

It was great times for all on Saturday and Sunday. The music was great. The people cool. The scene laid back.

Fucking downers lurking everywhere. Piss off.

Oh and MGMT is horrible.
