The Demos

Catalpa, New York's latest newest festival came to Randall's Island over the July 28th weekend and we were there. From Jonah Bromwich's write-up:
"Music festivals without a historical following or a known brand identity can employ many strategies in their inaugural year, one of which is "Appeal to as many prospective demographics as possible." Catalpa NYC, which debuted this weekend at Randall's Island, decided to combat this problem by throwing together a bunch of popular-ish acts and some quirky attractions--art, fire, a chance to "elope" with a fellow Snoop Dogg fan."
