"Jelly pool party was historic/epic. DMC + Andrew WK + Les Savy Fav+Doug E Fresh : unforgettable. Gucci mane is the gertrude stein of hip hop" -erikhinton

Gucci Mane @ Williamsburg Waterfront Sunday

When they said "surprise" they meant it, though as rumored (and here), Gucci Mane was on the lineup of the final Jelly Pool Party on Sunday, August 29th, at Williamsburg Waterfront. Andrew WK hinted at his participation the night before, but for the most part, the lineup remained a rumor until the artists hit the stage. Featuring DJ sets by The Rub and Smalltown DJs, Sunday's Pool Party-that-almost-didn't-happen featured performances from DMC (of Run DMC), Andrew WK (and Cherie Lilly), Doug E Fresh, Doug's son's group, Big Freedia (and dancer), The Cool Kids, Tim Harrington (of Les Savy Fav), and Atlanta MC Gucci Mane in addition to the previously announced Dominique Young Unique and Delorean.

Unlike Run, Andrew WK and Tim Harrington helped DMC perform "It's Tricky" and "Walk this Way". Delorean, already headlining multiple nights at 600+ capacity venues in NYC, played 2nd on the bill after an opening set by Dominique Young Unique who was busting out of her top as she played songs like "Show My Ass" (download that song above).

But Dominique's outfit was nothing compared to the stage show of New Orleans's Big Freedia who brought "Ass Everywhere" to a NYC crowd for the third time in two days (Freedia also performed at PS1 on Saturday and at Coco66 later that night) (Dominique also played again later Sunday night at Brooklyn Bowl).

So was it the final pool party ever?

...Series' co-founder, Sarah Hooper, has said that she "hates" what the beloved Pool Parties have become: lame concerts with muted speakers, too many security guards and too much oversight from the state and its patron, Open Space Alliance. She even hinted that Jelly's current side-project, a six-show free series called "Rock Yard" on Wythe Avenue, could replace the Pool Parties (so named because they began at the McCarren Park pool).

Hooper didn't fork over any of the juicy details when she took the stage on Sunday to give a crammed park its final farewell.

"Thank you so much, we love being in Brooklyn," she said to a roaring crowd. "Don't ever let anybody tell you that you can't be yourself." -[Brooklyn Paper]

By the way, Chuck Schumer was there again too. Until next year?

It's a safe bet that most of the upcoming comments are going to be something along these lines-

"I would have had more fun if I stayed home and had a bowl of hummus"

Besides Dominique's amazing body, the best thing on this bill was Chuck SchuMEH.

Victim of success.

Don't blame OSA for your own major fuck ups, Sarah Hooper.

You screwed yourself over (not to mentions hundreds of others.) And so obviously let your "hate" go public because you knew Smelly was coming to an end. It's easy to point the finger to avert blame.

You lack class. Suck it up and bow out with an iota of grace.

from comments like 837, i have the impression that in certain rarefied circles, there are people who actually give a damn

Well damn, Hipster-Hop is the new Chillwave. I'ma sell all my Best Coast LP's back to Other Music. Run and tell that!

taking nearly every shot at a 45° degree angle is something you learn not to do in photo 101.

and this pool party was terrible.

Live rap is always a mixed bag, but as far as energy goes, Gucci slayed, even with a set that bordered on karoake. Burr!

Yeah, what is up with the bad angles in the photos? The stage is not that high.

11:32 and 9:17... perhaps you should buy cameras and start getting press passes?

2:48 ugh... shut up. the photos are great. you people just need something to complain about, don't you?

The 45 degree tilt is something that should be used sparingly, and only when it enhances the composition. Do it all the time, and it doesn't become your signature, it becomes a crutch and a sign that you don't know how to compose properly.

Dominique is REALLY REALLY hot!!!

gucci mane is the worst "rapper" i have ever had the misfortune of listening to. no, i'm not a "hater". his music and his rhymes really do suck.

Hipster listen to Gucci Mane ironically.

Wonderful post and the location is beautiful and elegant in design and information and everything>>> to Favorites
Amazing is an enormous understatement. One of the best electronic shows I've ever been to and I've seen well over a thousand concerts. I had no idea Vladislav Delay was as good a drummer & percussionist as he is- fabulous and he kept everything swinging with a very unique style of playing. If you missed this you missed out big time...
