Let me begin by thinking back to a muddy, dilapidated day in August 2009; the third and final day of All Points West in Liberty State Park, New Jersey. Not only did the last day have a delayed opening, but overall, the organizers just couldn't pull together an impressive lineup. APW 2009 confirmed my suspicions of its lackluster potential. In its first two years of existence, the event lacked a certain charm that other fests around the country enjoy. Aside from the industry-centric CMJ, or small, admirable efforts like After The Jump or Siren Fest in Brooklyn, New York City does not have its own Pitchfork/Bonnaroo. But who cares? We're incredibly fortunate to have something that (most of) the rest of the country does not. Anyone who ignores the small gathering now happening annually at Monticello in the Catskill Mountains is looking in all the wrong places (or not reading the right music blogs). Just a few hours north of NYC is where the real magic happens, and trust the name: it's a party.
