Pier 97

As we mentioned in the Robyn / Roykskopp tour announcement post, NYC is getting a new summer venue this year, Pier 97, a 5,000+ capacity venue which will be booked by Live Nation and part of Hudson River Park. It's located on the Hudson River at 57th St. That's a digital version of what it will look like, above.

In addition to the Robyn/Royksopp show on August 20, there's also a Thievery Corporation show on August 15, and others which are listed below, plus more TBA. Tickets for all Pier 97 shows go on sale Friday (4/11) at noon, except the Thievery Corporation show which goes on sale Friday, April 18 at 10 AM.

Hopefully they have more luck than Bowery Presents did with Pier 26 which won't be returning this year due to noise complaints.

Governors Ball
Governors Ball
Governors Ball

Governors Ball continued on Saturday (6/8) for its second of three days. The weather was much better than day 1, but Friday's storm kept the entire place a mud swamp. Of course, that made for some interesting things like the muddy mosh pit during Fucked Up's set, but it also made walking from stage to stage kind of a drag. That said, it really wasn't that bad, and it was a whole lot more enjoyable to watch the music in the sun than in Friday's rain.

I got there just as Japandroids were going on (or, as they jokingly referred to themselves throughout their entire set, Guns N' Roses). They're an excellent festival band and were a great start to my day, though it was hard to get their usual crowd energy going on the large Governors Ball main stage. I'm sure that wasn't a problem at their afterparty at MHOW though, which I sadly missed. Did anyone catch that?

Maybe the most surprising thing I saw on Saturday was the size of Alt-J's crowd. I knew they were getting bigger, but I must not have fully realized to what extent. It was one of the largest crowds for a non-headliner I saw that day, and pretty impossible to move through it too. And it wasn't even people trying to get a good spot for Kendrick Lamar, who was on next, because a lot of them cleared out after Alt-J. Of course, Kendrick did bring his own huge crowd, and if I had to say, Kendrick worked a festival crowd better than any other act I saw this weekend.

For the Saturday night headliner, it was between Guns N' Roses on the Governors Ball Stage and Nas on the Honda Stage. I chose Nas. It was an excellent set from the legendary rapper, which included a good amount of Illmatic, some highlights of his new album (like "Daughters"), and backing by a killer live band. If you chose GNR, how were they?

Pictures of day 1 are HERE and HERE. Videos and setlist of Kanye's day 3 set are HERE, and more coverage is still on the way. More pictures of day 2 below...

UK bass duo Disclosure, last here in October, will be back in March -- not for SXSW but the 2013 Ultra Music Festival in Miami which takes place over two weekends (3/15 - 17 and 3/22 - 24).

Williamsburg

"I lived in Manhattan in the '80s and we used to talk about 'bridge and tunnel' people," said Sunny Chapman, 60, a dance instructor and artist who moved to Williamsburg 16 years ago. "Now we talk about bridge and tunnel people coming in from Manhattan."

The crush of outsiders in the neighborhood "absolutely is Topic A," Ms. Chapman said. "One person will mention an episode of rudeness and the floodgates will open. They walk into me when they walk down the street texting."

That is not all. "Don't get me started on their giant $800 strollers running over my ankles in King's Pharmacy," she said

She added: "A lot of people from the old days carry guns. One of these days one of these suburban kids is going to say the wrong thing to the wrong person." [NY Times]

Watch your backs.

The focus of the NY Times article is mostly the now familiar battle between the Williamsburg Waterfront concerts and some angry residents.

The first and one of the only free shows happening at the Waterfront this summer is Coheed & Cambria on 6/11.

The first pay show is currently Thievery Corporation on 6/24, a show which now also has Raphael Saadiq on the bill. Tickets for that and other Waterfront shows are on sale.

Wiz Khalifa @ Rock The Bells 2010 (more by Eric Townsend)
Wiz Khalifa

We're now up to four announced ticketed shows happening at Williamsburg Waterfront this summer. Thievery Corporation are playing the outdoor North Brooklyn space on Friday, June 24th, and tickets go on sale this Friday at noon which is also when Death Cab For Cutie/Frightened Rabbit tickets go on sale. The other two, which are already on sale, are Sonic Youth and Kid Cudi.

Wiz Khalifa, who plays the Roots Picnic on June 4th, and Monmouth University on July 29th, will play Central Park Summerstage on July 25th. Tickets go on presale Thursday at 10am, and then general sale Friday at noon.

Tickets go on AmEx presale today (5/4) at noon for Ratatat's upcoming show at the same Summerstage venue.

It's always confusing that, except from a promoter/series/financial/whatever point of view, "Central Park Summerstage" and "Rumsey Playfield" are actually the same venue even though you have to do two separate searches on Ticketmaster to find all the ticketed shows happening there. Ray Lamontagne and the Pariah Dogs are playing two Rumsey Playfield shows this year. The sold out 5/31 one was announced a while ago (with Brandi Carlile and The Secret Sisters opening), and the 9/26 one (with no openers announed yet) goes on presale Thursday at 10am, and then on general sale Friday at 10am.

In related news, Bon Iver's recently announced Prospect Park show is now sold out.

Crystal Castles

The gray skies grew darker Sunday in Chicago when a man allegedly punched a horse as the Lollapalooza music festival drew to a close.

Pablo Fernandez, a 21-year-old Mexican national, is accused of approaching a Chicago police horse at around 9 p.m as the three-day festival was winding down, and when he was told by the mounted officer that he could not pet the working animal, Fernandez became angered and allegedly punched the equine.

The assault caused the horse to rear back in a panic while in the middle of the concert-goers, police spokeswoman Gabrielle Lesniak told the Chicago Tribune. Fernandez was charged with misdemeanor reckless conduct.

Police News Affairs Officer Kevin Kilmer told the Chicago Sun-Times that he couldn't confirm that the violence was Lolla-related, but it did take place as the festival was wrapping up and police were trying to get crowds to disperse from Grant Park. Approximately 75,000 people a day attended the festival, which was headlined by acts like Jane's Addiction, Depeche Mode and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs.

Kilmer had no word on the status of the horse. [LA Times]

Lollapalooza took place in Chicago last weekend (Aug 7-9).

Depeche Mode were one of the headliners on the first day (Friday). Since then they had to cancel a few shows. Crystal Castles also played that day. From there that band went on to just barely played at HARD Fest in LA. Thievery Corporation were also one of the many bands on that day's bill. They have since announced a Halloween show in NYC at Terminal 5. Tickets for that are on sale.

Street Scene

"STREET SCENE, one of the nation's longest running music festivals, will celebrate its 25th anniversary with two full days of music Friday, August 28 and Saturday, August 29.

The venue site will include Tailgate Park (adjacent to Petco Park) in the heart of East Village, incorporating 14th Street as the main thoroughfare and bordered by Imperial Avenue to J Street."
2009 is the 25th anniversary of the festival which was launched in 1984. This year's festival also has WAVVES on the lineup, which means three shows total now scheduled for the band. Full lineup below...

John Legend, The Dead Weather, and The Levon Helm Band will also make their ACL Festival debut, while Austin's own Ghostland Observatory will no doubt deliver another memorable set for festival goers.

With over 130 artists on this year's bill, the list of acts awes at each note with the likes of Sonic Youth, Mos Def, Toadies, Flogging Molly, The B-52s, Lily Allen, Citizen Cope, Arctic Monkeys, The Decemberists, Coheed and Cambria, Andrew Bird, Girl Talk, and many more.

The 2009 lineup is rich with pop, country, folk, bluegrass, blues, reggae, indie rock, hip-hop, and gospel, to name a few, spanning cultures and countries from New Orleans to Venezuela to France."
