Tonight’s the night
To quote the words of FREE DANGER:
“We would like to invite you to our last party for a long long time. We understand this is short notice but you don’t want to miss this. Ear Pwr and Toro y Moi will be performing live. If you have been to our parties in the past, you know how much of a jam Ear Pwr are and we are super super excited for Toro y Moi to be playing as well considering his jams are on point.
Our great friend Alfredo will also be on hand mixing up a huge batch of his out of control tequila Sangria too.
Sara G will be DJing before and in between the bands.
If this wasn’t enough we will also be unveiling our L.A. STORY installation.
Party starts promptly at ten. $5 donation for bands.
435 Broadway #406
We hope you can make it out.
Bring your friends, lets make this one count!”

The rain, which began as an epic mood setter for the crooning Fleet Foxes, seemed to have something to prove on our first day at Liberty State Park. And although my shoes, purse, camera, and so on were basically ruined, my ears were not in the least bit disappointed– a pleasant surprise from a festival that I was, quite honestly, meh about.
We’ll try our best to live tweet it up tomorrow (if the weather complys), as the highlights of the day now seem to have happened days (not just hours) ago. Personal fave was definitely Jay-Z opening with a “No Sleep ‘Til Brooklyn” cover, not to mention the Get Well MCA band around Karen O’s arm. And in case you didn’t get the memo, APW has announced that anyone with ticket stubs from Friday can enjoy an extra day of musical festivities, since that heavenly downpour was such a pain in our water logged fingers.
Lots more photos after the jump…
