Governors Ball 2014

NYC music festival Governors Ball kicked off its 2014 edition yesterday (6/6) with sets from the reunited Outkast, Blur/Gorillaz frontman Damon Albarn, Grimes, TV on the Radio, Phoenix, Neko Case, La Roux, Rilo Kiley singer Jenny Lewis, Washed Out, Janelle Monae, Kurt Vile, Run the Jewels (Killer Mike + El-P) and still more.

Outkast's much-anticipated set (like many of their other festival sets this year) started with both Big Boi and Andre 3000 on stage for tons of favorites right off the bat including "B.O.B.," "Gasoline Dreams, "ATLiens," "Rosa Parks," "Aquemini," "Ms. Jackson," and more. Then Big Boi did three songs alone, Andre did three alone (including "Hey Ya!" for which Janelle Monae came on stage to dance), and then another Outkast set. The second set ended with "The Whole World," for which they brought out Killer Mike to rap his verse. Pictures of all artists mentioned (and more), plus Outkast's setlist and a video of "Hey Ya!" are in this post.

GovBall continues today (6/7) with Diarrhea Planet taking the stage in about two hours (12:45 PM), and other sets include Jack White, Spoon, The Strokes, Disclosure, Broken Bells, Chance the Rapper, Deafheaven and more.

Posted by Anonymous | June 7, 2014 9:10 PM

People, people, listen up and listen good. Neko Case is a woman who smells really really bad. OMG. A lot of you think this is a joke or some stupid internet meme. But hear me people: take a whiff and be blown away. I'm not sure what it is or why she smells so bad. Perhaps she excretes something through her skin. Maybe its just farts. But oh lordy.

Cool! I'm a "creative assistant intern" at an arts/music publication in Bushwick. That is literally my exact job description.

I specialize in being "creative" and "assisting" and it is the most rewarding experience. Plus I get to visit foreign countries and get into paid shows for free! I love my life! :o)

Festivals are generally for the mentally deficient. And are also completely unnecessary in New York City.
