Day 1 of Governors Ball 2015 began on a gloomy note, with ominous skies and eventually a cold downpour of rain. But my day, and the festival, began with a set from Philadelphia’s The Districts, who had a storm of rock and roll ready to conquer the dreary skies.
The group have made a few stops in New York throughout the year, in support of their promising debut album A Flourish and a Spoil (released via Fat Possum). Considering their set took place a mere 15 minutes after gates opened, and with the eventual downpour, the group attracted a modest but appreciative crowd. Those who were there were treated to a memorable set of The Districts power rock, just more proof that they are most certainly one of the most exciting prospects in rock and roll.
