Beekman Beer Garden Saturday night (more by Chris La Putt)
Black Lips

The Village Voice just issued this statement:

"The Village Voice is aware of the complaints about the aggressive nature of the security guards/bouncers at the 4Knots Music Festival After-Party and is taking them very seriously. These security guards/bouncers were not 4Knots employees, nor were they contracted through The Village Voice or 4Knots Music Festival. They work independently for the Beekman Beer Garden. Due to their actions with our audience, we will not be working with them again in the future. We apologize to anyone who was affected that evening."
Previously: things got wild at Beekman Black Lips show, fans roughed up by security (pics & video)

Come on--- who doesn't want to punch those kids?!?!? Have you listened to the Black Lips?!?!?!? Somebody has to knock some sense into these fuckers!!!!!

This is idiotic. A bunch of kids knocked over a barricade and act violently in the crowd (which is a HUGE insurance risk for the venue, the exact reason security is hired in the first place) and everyone gets pissed?

The real travesty is that Kid Congo opened for the Black Lips instead of the other way around.

That dude is all like "You want to antagonize me? Antagonize me, motherfucker. Get in the ring, motherfucker. And I'll kick your bitchy little ass... punk."

This story seems to be a good example of how dumb kids are these days.

This is like the trendies version of the LA Riots of '92. Nothing really worth worrying about too much.

yeah these hipster kids just act all immature and entitled and then get their panties in a twist whenever the real world tells them to calm down and act like adults.

These kids do need a whooping.

the real tragedy is that Yaps didn't get kicked out.

Bunch of entitled little children.

Those bouncers were probably like: "Uh, hell nah, that cracker did not just do that..."

BAMMM!

It's amazing that in an age where groups like Passion Pit and Grimes are making money, people are griping about a band that actually plays straight up rock and roll music.

"You can't tell me what to do! I'm white and I like better music than you!!!"

Straight up rock and roll? How about straight up entitled, bourgeoise horseshit... Take a look at these fucking people! It looked like you needed to show your Dalton, Poly-Prep or Friends School ID to get in.

These people don't make music. They make headlines.

The problem with the bouncers started when someone accidentally knocked over their 2 liter bottle of grape soda.
