Thanks to the storm that hit us on Friday (6/7), day 1 of Governors Ball got off to a pretty messy start. It wasn't so bad at first, and early sets from Polica and Dinosaur Jr. (who had a bunch of fans there in J.Mascis-style grey wigs) were still enjoyable despite the weather, but later in the day, the rain severely picked up and Feist's set was shut down after one song. Other artists, like Beach House, were cut off early too, and some, like Pretty Lights and Kings of Leon (who ended up playing Saturday instead), had to cancel completely. Still, before then there was much to enjoy, and the Skyy Vodka Tent made for a great place to take shelter and dry off. Plus huge afternoon dance parties from Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs and Crystal Castles didn't hurt either.

Stay tuned for our continued coverage of Governors Ball, and follow BrooklynVegan on twitter and instagram for live updates (as much as cell phone service permits at least, it gets pretty rough around mid-day). More pictures of day 1 below...

And just when you think it can't get any worse, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs starts his set.
That douche bag can go fuck his cocky ass with a spotted dick.

The second consecutive NYC festival that's "100% Rain or Shine" that's canceled due to rain. And people wonder why these shitshows are fodder for snarky comments.

Seriously, where was Murph? Anyone?

Murph had to sit this tour out. Lou said at the Irving Plaza show not to worry and he's coming back.

Where's the credit for the good looking girls in this´╗┐ video. Who are they or what is George Berze doing in it. She looks even cooler than the girl in green days september song. Happy Harvest Moon J, Lou, Murph,
