The inaugural Catalpa Festival got off to a soggy start on Saturday in Randalls Island Park, but the intermittent rain that turned the lawns in front of the stages into muddy bogs did little to dampen the enthusiasm of people who came out to see the Black Keys and TV on the Radio...

...The rain started again as the Black Keys took the stage at about 9:30. Yet several thousand people pressed up, some of the men lifting women up on their shoulders, as Dan Auerbach, the band's guitarist and vocalist, launched into "Howlin' for You." A few songs later, Mr. Auerbach and his partner, the drummer Patrick Carney, had the crowd singing along and dancing in the rain as they did "Dead and Gone" and "Gold on the Ceiling," two hits from their most recent album El Camino [NY Times].

The Catalpa Music Festival happened this weekend (July 28 - 29) on Randall's Island. Saturday's wet line-up included The Black Keys, TV on the Radio, Zola Jesus, Umphrey's McGee, Hercules & Love Affair and more. Did you go? How was it? Pictures from those bands and other Saturday performers are below.
