Out and About: 4Knots Festival

The Seaport in the financial district of Manhattan provides a happy home for New York tourists to enjoy some seaside shopping and eating, but this weekend it also provided a stomping ground for the first inaugural 4Knots Fest, thrown by the Village Voice. Although the festivities were significantly smaller than 4Knots now defunct older brother Siren Fest, a few new amenities and a somewhat diminished crowd actually boosted the enjoyment factor. Check out photos from around the festival, and from two of the performers— Titus Andronicus, and Oberhofer.

The festival was divided into two areas, the mainstage and the indoor lounge with DJ sets, beer, and free Popchips. We snapped pics of both.



Oberhofer put up a performance worthy of summer sun and rabid enthusiasm. A definite addendum to CMJ set for us. Nothing beats the live version of "I Could Go", even the recorded one.



And then Titus Adronicus killed it all the way to the bank, the entire Seaport from mosh pit to restaurant balcony crying in unison "the enemy is everywhere!" If you don't know what I mean, go see the New Jersey anthem band as soon as possible. They're a live music staple.



All in all, a great Saturday afternoon. Looking forward to an expanded roster at next year's 4Knots. Ahoy!
