Fucked Up
Jemina Pearl

On Sunday afternoon, the young and not-so-young of indie Brooklyn convened along the Williamsburg waterfront for the first of this summer’s relocated Pool Parties concerts. For the last three years the shows were the miracle of McCarren Park Pool, turning a civic ruin each weekend into an instant oasis of loud — loud music, loud fashion, loud shouts from the dodgeball court. But with McCarren booked for a $50 million renovation, the Pool Parties were moved to East River State Park, a seven-acre chunk of grass and concrete flanked by luxury condo buildings. (Kind of like McCarren, actually.) Would they still have the magic?

For the 6,000 or more who came out on Sunday for Mission of Burma, Ponytail, Jemina Pearl and a certain hardcore band from Toronto led by a big bear named Pink Eyes, the prevailing feeling about the new space seemed to be positive. But opinion was divided along two lines: those who considered its view and riverside breeze a delicious improvement, and those who found it nice but lacking the character of McCarren.

“I like this much better,” said Sacha Chernoff, a teacher who lives in Carroll Gardens. “The water, the view — it’s beautiful.” [NY Times]

The NY Times is not allowed to say “Fucked Up“.
