Recap: The Fool's Gold and Jelly Pool Party Was, In Fact, Not The Last One

And damn it, I'm psyched as psyched can be that we've got one more week to revel in the radness that is this summer's Jelly Pool Party events, down at the Williamsburg Waterfront. After major OSA vs Jelly eFisticuffs went down, I awakened this past Sunday morning to news that next week's Delorean and Dominique Young Unique-featuring event is back on. Hooray! But before we get too far ahead, let's take a lil' looksy at the weekend that was: rain, rum, record labels and all.

Fool's Gold had the distinguishing honor of curating the day's lineup, and what better way to do so than with a ton of their friends and, literally, family. Chromeo (half made of the other brother Macklovitch, he who heads up the label...A-Trak), Kid Sister (A's girl), The Suzan and Telephoned rounded out the bill, with deck destroyer Kingdom offering up the in-betwixt set spins.

 

The rain delayed everything just a smidge, but the warm confines of the All Saints Pub once again proved a proper breeding ground for afternoon shenanigans, high fives, hollering at hot contingents, and giving us good reason to smile and toss 'em back in anticipation of next week's sayonara soiree. Also, we know who that TBA guest is. You're probably going to want to be in attendance.

 

Full set of pictures from this past Sunday's Pool Party can be viewed here. And yeah, they're all from behind and/or in All Saints cause I didnt feel like getting dropped on with precipitation. Baby Beast.

Recap: Jelly NYC's Block Party on August 1

Well, it wasn't quite the raging block party atmosphere that we had every intention of expecting, but with free spirits flowing and showing at All Saints prior to the band/Brooklyn Bowl portion of the afternoon, Jelly's Block (not pool) Party on August 1 brought out a solid group of super fashionable and friendly kids.

With the All Saints lounge kicking off the afternoon with DJ sets from Apache Beat's Ilirjana and DJ Whitney Fierce, a number of local friends, old and new, gathered for imbibings of the no-cost kind. Dodgeball was still in effect, albeit 2 blocks down on Kent, and the live performances, well those were relegated to Brooklyn Bowl. Sets came courtesy of ArpLine, Darlings and Ted Leo. 

 

Next week, the Pool Party returns to the Waterfront, and it's the Modular-curated party, aka, the one we're most looking forward to, because Cut Copy, Memory Tapes, Glasser and Restless People will be taking the stage, along with PUNCHES providing the in-between set spins. Yay.
