Day for Night Sunday pics (Bjork, Butthole Surfers, Arca, Kamasi, Uncle Acid, more)

The second annual Day For Night festival went down in Houston this past weekend. We already posted pictures of Saturday, which had the first Aphex Twin US show in eight years, rain, and more, and here’s pictures of Sunday. Like Saturday, Sunday was seriously stacked, with Bjork, Butthole Surfers, Arca, Kamasi Washington, Uncle Acid and the Deadbeats, RZA, Squarepusher, S U R V I V E, Lightning Bolt and more. Here’s an excerpt of a review from The Observer, whose headline calls Day for Night “the future of musical festivals”:

For its first year in a new venue that hadn’t been used for anything since the post office shuttered, Day For Night was still a tremendous success.

Bringing together disparate creative communities like the psych kids from Austin and the and more mainstream fans in the interest of feeding their heads is a noble enterprise, while seeing a minimal amount of Heineken logos made the whole space feel cohesive and singular. So as the Travis Scott fans waited through Ariel Pink, Thunder Bolt and the Butthole Surfers for their favorite auto-tune rapper to emerge, they were bombarded with strange sounds they may never otherwise have heard.

And while comparing their decked-out Supreme and Tommy Hilfiger outfits between sets didn’t happen with a trace of irony for the larger meta-textual narrative and dialogue happening between artists and performers, even those kids left the Barbara Jordan Post Office a little bit weirder.

Read more of the lengthy review here. Pictures of Sunday are in the gallery above.
