"New York cares." That's what the audience sang with Interpol's Paul Banks during the city indie anthem "NYC" as Governors Ball 2014 neared its close on Sunday. Throughout the weekend some of the city's finest bands had made a return to festival stages, secured headliner statuses and played the most memorable sets of the fest for home crowds. For Interpol, it has just announced a new album, played two excellent new tracks and Sunday's show at Governors Ball was the band's "First home show for us in a long time." A set heavy on the classics, Interpol played through "Obstacle 1," "Slow Hands," "Narc," "Evil" and "Stella Was a Driver and She Was Always Down." [Reverb]
The 2014 Governors Ball music festival wrapped up yesterday (6/8) after two other days of music on NYC's Randall's Island. The third and final day had sets from Vampire Weekend, Interpol (who along with The Strokes and Jack White's set featuring White Stripes songs, brought us back over a decade), James Blake, The Kills, J. Cole, The Head and the Heart, Tyler the Creator, Earl Sweatshirt and more. Luckily, with today's rain and Thursday's, the weather held out for GovBall all weekend (unlike last year). Pictures of day 3 are in this post.

Day 1 HERE. Day 2 HERE. More of day 3 below...

Good God, Interpol's still around...and still wearing suits!

Yes, 4:53, but Interpol slayed big time, best set I have ever seen from them, they seem reinvigorated.

great time. Glad weather was on the festivals side this year.

Posted by Anonymous | June 9, 2014 6:04 PM

I'm so glad I'm too old for this shit. It seems like the festival going youth of today just go to be headdress wearing hipster assholes so they can tweet or Instagram or whatever latest stupid internet social media thing is popular this month. I guess it doesn't help that most of the acts suck. Interpol are too good for this trendy hipster narcissistic thing.

I went to a restaurant yesterday and every person in their early twenties were taking selfies with their fucking food. Society is doomed.

510 Did you say slayed? Ha ha. What a dork!

Vampire Weekend / Interpol / James Blake
Does it get any worse than that trio?
I guess maybe if Phoenix, Coldplay or fun were there.
Or that horrible couple who smile and play drums and guitar.

Posted by Anonymous | June 10, 2014 9:59 AM

Katy Perry has some great tunes, as do Interpol and Vampire Weekend. I don't know James Blake.

I hope the lovely young lady in the second picture from the bottom bared her nubile bre@sts to the performer as young ladies did back in my day when a band was slaying it up on stage.

blarg rar blah blarg rar I am angry lost jerk caught up in hype to a degree that I have lost my own self. I am an angry troll upset at showmen who are just doing what they love. My love is of a different music but as an artist I looked at showmen to see how they make money. I got angry and jaded since I thought that's what I would have to do if I wanted to have people listen to my music. I was mistaken, I now I see I am just of a different cloth. Enjoy what you enjoy people's of bv. I may not know these bands or even be a fan of any of them but this troll has grown up. My misplaced anonymous anger is gone. I now come here to look at pretty pictures.
