    JellyNYC's latest Pool Party started unlike any other Sunday afternoon this summer...with salsa music. Of course, it was the perfect way to kick off what would be a brutish afternoon. The sun shining, the views breathtaking, and Grupo Fantasmo leading the audience in a swell of salsa beats, even managing to keep the good people of the waterfront dancing well after their performance. The band provided a good kind of feeling; something noise rock giants HEALTH would only perpetuate as they raised their audiences' pulse with loud, captivating guitar riffs, and their thrashing performance style.

    Between acts, there were plenty of the usual Pool Party activities to keep concert goers happy, including basketball, dodge ball, and plenty of beverage consumption. Some folks even used the opportunity to graze in the grass behind the stage, marveling at the dramatic views of mighty Gotham.

    Finally, the Black Lips took the stage, with the audience making it entirely clear that they were the band the audience had flocked en masse to see. Even with security holding back the barricades, a few managed to find their way on to the stage. Naturally, so too did the crowd surfers. Being the "professionals" that they are, Black Lips kept their cool throughout, never once becoming distracted by the madness that their music encourages.

    Sadly, that would be it as wicked weather would prevent headliners ...And You Will Know Us By the Trail of Dead from taking the stage. Until next time, I suppose... - Rani Mackevich
