the 2009 NYU Strawberry Festival (Golden Triangle, Motel Motel, White Rabbits, etc) – pics

"Instead of having some form of a spring weekend like a lot of schools, NYU instead holds an event every year that has us celebrating... well, umm, strawberries.
Maybe us hipsters should count our blessings. My friends at Penn State got a performance from Asher Roth. Coincidentally, my friends from Penn State generally enjoy college, drinking, women, and college. On second thought, it was a perfect fit.
Anyway, for the past 25 years or so, NYU has picked out a spring day, sectioned off a block or so, closed it off from traffic, and relentlessly force-fed unsuspecting students with several tons of strawberries. It's an experience, if only to check out/devour "NYC's Largest Strawberry Shortcake."
The bands were White Rabbits, Motel Motel, Golden Triangle, Teengirl Fantasy, and We Are The Arm. More pictures from Friday's fest below...
