Roosevelt Island Acoustic BBQ

Last weekend we headed out to Roosevelt Island to hear some bands (but all the hip kids seem to call them "projects" these days). There was a lot of diversity, in terms of musical styles, but I think my favorites were Golden Ghost, The Goddamn Rattlesnake, and Necking (whose set consisted of two guys 100 yards away from each other beating drums, hurling their drumsticks at each other, and yelling obscenities. Maybe you had to be there). It was a hot, I mean, HOT day, and in a field at the southern tip of the island, not a tree or shady spot in sight. There was a gorgeous view of Manhattan though. I was looking around on MySpace and found this guy who had a couple of shots of us (at least from the back). Here they are:

Our host, Todd P by name, kept pushing sunscreen and barbeque, urging us to put our beer in cups. I had to leave too early to see too much of Big A/Little A, but I managed to get a picture before I left. On my way out, I also got some pictures of the old hospital.
