Despite the sun blaring, sound levels needing to be kept low due in part to the birth of a baby red-tailed hawk, and the temporary shutting down of the show due to people climbing poles and otherwise being too violent, Lightning Bolt managed to play a headlining set at NYU's annual Strawberry Festival on Friday. And in keeping with the bird theme, they shared a bill with both Pterodactyl and Ducktails, and The So So Glos too.

The festival's mascot, a human dressed as a strawberry was in attendance and seen crowd surfing. Some video of that, and more pictures from the whole day, below...
