Even for those of us too old to hit the Warped Tour anymore, summer is a great time for punk rock, and last weekend's shows were happy to show us why. On Thursday, Matt & Kim had all of Pier 54 jumping, on Saturday, Parts & Labor and Big Bear threw down at the Market Hotel, and all weekend long Todd P's experimental extravaganza NYC Eye and Ear Fest took over the Knitting Factory and Death by Audio. The highlight of all this bouncing and fist-pumping action, though, was the highly anticipated return of JellyNYC Pool Parties, featuring Ponytail, Fucked Up, and Mission of Burma.

The party's moved from McCarren Park Pool to the Williamsburg Waterfront, and though we'll miss the cavernous venue, the skyline view and the breeze from the water have only added to the laid-back, summertime feel. Pasty city dwellers peacefully sunning themselves on the bank of the East River contrasted sharply with the swarming moshpits and the crowd going ballistic. Molly Siegel screeched and shook as the rest of Ponytail shredded, Pink Eyes of Fucked Up lumbered into the audience to let intrepid crowd surfers roar along into the microphone as park security struggled to keep the barricades upright, and Mission of Burma, though tame by comparison, played "That's When I Reach For My Revolver" and proved that they can still rock out. But don't take our word for it check out our front line photos for a glimpse of the action. Jelly NYC remains the best reason to shake off that hangover and drag yourself out of bed on a summer Sunday, so come join the festivities. Nina Mashurova
