Recap: Cut Copy Headlined the August 8 Modular-Curated Pool Party

For this past weekend's installment of the summer Pool Party series at the Williamsburg Waterfront, Jelly teamed up with their Modular label pals for an Aussie-curated Sunday fun day. With Cut Copy headlining, and support coming via Restless People, Glasser, Memory Tapes and PUNCHES, there was no denying how massive the turn out would be. Lines formed early, kids waited patiently, and it all paid off with an afternoon jam-packed with good music, great friends, and the shaded solace of the All Saints Pub.



Next week's event brings together !!!, Lee Fields, The Strange Boys and Future Islands. After that, the 22nd of the month couples the Fool's Gold dream team of Chromeo, Kid Sister, The Suzan and Telephoned, before rounding out our favorite summer Sunday activity on August 29 with Delorean, Dominique Young Unique and some as yet to be announced "super special guests". 


Here's to hoping those two pair up for a duet...am I right? Spanish dance-rock and a Tampa spitter with a flair for the dirty vernacular...match made in heaven, ha!


Check out the full gallery of pictures from this weekend's event here.

EVR's Belly of the Beast: PUNCHES, Glasser and Modular All Drop by the Booth This Week

Big tings poppin' in the East Village Radio booth tomorrow, on our weekly show, Belly of the Beast. Being that this Sunday is the Modular-curated Pool Party at the Williamsburg Waterfront, there's no better way to express our excitement for the affair, than by having a bona fide celebration of our own this Thursday, August 5, from 8-10pm.



The lineup for this Sunday's Jelly NYC soirée includes Cut Copy, Memory Tapes, Glasser and Restless People, with local trio, PUNCHES, providing the between-set spins. Greg, Darin and Alan will be in the booth to talk shop and maybe we  can convince them to do a live song for us. Gotta tune in to find out.


Glasser will also pop in for a quick chat, along with resident expert, Shelley, from the Modular family. I'll be spinning songs from all participating acts during the segment as well.


'Tis gon' be a beast of a show, so you know the drill: Thursday, August 5 from 8-10pm...Belly of the Beast on East Village Radio. Tuners-ins are my favorite.
