All Points West Recap

Wow. So I told you all I would be mingling throughout All Points West this weekend. And I was... Sort of. For those of you in the Tri-State area it was a wet weather weekend up here. But I managed to make an appearance Friday night as you can see from the snapshot of the ticket above.

I was lucky enough to catch Jay-Z do his set on Friday night as he opened with a tribute to the Beastie Boys as well as a brief tribute to Michael Jackson as well. It took me like an hour to hike from the Light Rail to the main stage area a a trudged through mud and puddles for three miles though. Had to get some new kicks after that fiasco, but oh well.

Saturday brought about good weather and some nice performances I was told. The Ting Tings came out and and blessed the crowd with their bubbly British pop sounds.

Sunday brought about thinderstorms that resulted in some delays and sets being cancelled but the day was capped off with a nice show by MGMT who are going be making even bigger moves this fall with features on a certain someones upcoming album. Coldplay closed the weekend with their set.

All in all, despite the mud and rain, concert goers enjoyed the weekend and the everything that All Points West had to offer.
