The first day of Afro-Punk 2012 descended upon Commodore Barry Park on Saturday (8/25), bringing with it a day of live musical performance, skateboarding and dancing crowds as far as the eye could see.

More pics of Afro-Punk day 1, including Erykah Badu, Yasiin Bey, Das Racist, Spank Rock, Cerebral Ballzy, Oxymorrons, The Joe Jordan Experiment and more are below.

I'm not sure if there is a connection or not, but the day after this festival, all the local bodegas happen to be sold out of grape soda.

4:23 - The "grape soda" joke campaign is a fail.

Cerebral Ballzy is the biggest-brattiest-shittiest band around. bunch of fucking NY cunts. how the fuck did they ever get so big playing their boring fucking bullshit is beyond me. i honestly don't know 1 person who actually likes them. and they think they are all soooo fucking cool but they look like a bunch of fucking regurgitated hot topic bitches.

Amazing fashion and style here. I imagine every fashion editor (or their assistant) was here getting ideas.

Great festival. Too many people and long lines but that's what happens for "free."

CB isn't big. at all. as D has said on here many times, they just have strong booking/management. i agree 100% about their whole schtick. real tired, real fast.

oh...and "with Yasiin Bey"....ugh please. call that motherfucker Mos Def, b/c sorry, that's your name dude. a bit late to change it now.
