During the last weekend of July 2012, Randall’s Island in New York City, was once again the host of another major music festival – Catalpa. Severe storms threatened throughout both days but the ominous clouds did little to dampen the spirits of those who came for two days full of music. With acts like Hercules and Love Affair, Umphrey’s McGee (Two Sets!), TV on the Radio, and the Black Keys on Saturday 7/28 and the Cold War Kids, Matisyahu, AraabMUSIK, Girl Talk, A$ap Rocky, and Snoop Dogg on Sunday 7/29; it would take a lot more than some mud and rain to tone down the festive crowd.
A full review will be coming soon but in the meantime check out some pictures from the first ever Catalpa below . . .
