Live Review: Gov's Ball NY, NY, 6/6,7/14

Hey all got a new review up @glidemag which you can read Right C'here!!!
Took a few pics including that peach above. It was a hell of a festival and really surpassed my expectations for what a festival this size in NYC can truly be. It didn't hurt that the headliners of the event on the days I went were two acts I was dying to see. 

Having never seen Outkast, this was a moment not to be missed and our man crush Jack White playing the second night was a hard rocking delight. Getting to and from the festival was a breeze with the Ferry Pass.
Ferry Ride out on Friday

While the staff working the lines were pretty idiotic the whole process was smooth to get you back to midtown with relative ease especially considering the MASSIVE crowd on hand. I know I would not want to mess with the subway for that kind of event.

While we already mentioned the headlining highlights and we talked about him in the full review, extra special love needs to go to Jason Isbell who we have been in love with ever since we heard Southeastern. While we rated that album highly and caught Jason and Amanda live at our pick for the show of 2013, this was our first time catching a set from him proper and it was amazing.

As you can see we got pretty close to the action and almost shed a tear during a heartbreaking version of "Elephant" which Isbell mentioned he never played in sunlight before. A killer early set that dwarfed quite a few others we saw.         

We will end with this last pic of the main stage during The Strokes set, which we just couldn't get into but everyone else seemed to...for some unknown reason.

We wrote a bunch in the review proper and took the survey from Gov's Ball post show, but if the lineup is half as good as this next year we will be there...actually we will probably be there no matter what. A few quick Vid's from Billboard that we have found from some of the artists:
