Preview: Full Moon Fest 2014

By Will Oliver, July 22nd 2014


The Full Moon Fest returns to Governor’s Island on August 8 for the fourth installation of the dance beach-themed mini-festival, which takes its inspiration from the full moon parties of Thailand, set beneath an August full moon.

This year the festival sports a lineup that includes Delorean, The Knocks, Son Lux, Le Youth, The Aston Shuffle, Penguin Prison, Wave Racer, Young & Sick, Chela, Emefe, and JDH & Dave P.

Tickets are still available for the fest, and at a limited bargain price of $50. Not bad at all, considering how many acts you would get to see. Don’t wait too long, as the next pricing is set at $125 (but it’s VIP).

Below check out two mixes from the festival, cleverly titled “The Waxing Moon” and “The Crescent Moon”: Read the rest of this entry »

Dinosaur Jr. at 4Knots Music Festival 2014

By Will Oliver, July 16th 2014

1_Dinosaur Jr.

Dinosaur Jr.
were the headliner at the 4Knots Music Festival this year and filled the role with all the levels of prestige that you would come to expect. By the time they took the stage, the crowd had reached its peak, completely filling up the South Street Seaport of every space that it had to offer.

The band offered a sharp set of all their classic songs, which included their always welcome cover of The Cure’s “Just Like Heaven.” Their performance was a reminder of why rock and roll will always live on. Seeing three older guys put their all on the stage for us, rocking just as hard as they did in their glory days, is always something to treasure.

They don’t make them quite like Dinosaur Jr. anymore, but hey, we are lucky enough to still have them around.

Mac DeMarco at 4Knots Music Festival 2014

By Will Oliver, July 15th 2014

1_Mac DeMarco

Whenever young girls start showing up to your shows screaming for you, you’ve made it. This was the case at Mac DeMarco’s 4Knots performance this Saturday. Even as he was just setting up his gear, chilling with a smoke in hand, girls started screaming his name. DeMarco must be starting to see this sort of thing more now, but you can tell it’s still something he’s getting used to.

There’s no doubt that DeMarco is becoming a star, and how can you be made, the guy deserves it. Not only does he make songs that both rock out and please the romantics, but he puts on a fun show. Him and his band deliver a youthful energy that connects with fans, and it always helps when you can rely on Mac for a trip into the crowd by the end of the show. Salad Days remains one of the year’s best, and getting to hear its tracks played live amongst the highlights of 2 always makes for an enchanting evening.

With a newly announced show at Terminal 5 this November, it looks as though the intimate shows are now a thing of the past. Hey, that’s the price of being a rock star.

Those Darlins at 4Knots Music Festival 2014

By Will Oliver, July 15th 2014

1_Those Darlins

Nashville, Tennessee Those Darlins dazzled with a set of rock and roll with a twinge of country in its DNA. The band, 3/4 which were girls rocked out with a intensity that is always welcome on stage. There’s a southern garage-rock drawl to their delivery that is the sort of thing that can get a crowd going. Free show or not, they put in all of their energy and gave us their all.

Viet Cong at 4Knots Music Festival 2014

By Will Oliver, July 15th 2014

Viet Cong
is the new project of Matt Flegel and Matt Wallace, two former members of the defunct band Women, as well as Scott Munro and Danny Christiansen. Their set at 4Knots featured songs of their recently released debut cassette which Mexican Summer put out earlier this year.

Their sound is somewhat of a garage rock drone with punk-minded roots, something that went over well with the appreciative crowd.

Speedy Ortiz at 4Knots Music Festival 2014

By Will Oliver, July 15th 2014

1_Speedy Ortiz

The Village Voice’s annual 4Knots Music Festival is always a highlight of my summer, stretching back to the early days when it used to take place at Coney Island and be known as the Siren Music Festival. This year, Speedy Ortiz kicked off the festival for me, with a wonderful set under the sun next to the Peking boat.

The group, now with new guitarist Devin McKnight (who replaced Matt Robidoux) seems to get better and better every time I see them. The trend continued at 4Knots with one of the bands tightest and liveliest performances yet.
