The two-day festival put on by Woodsist and Captured Tracks, the imprint of Blank Dogs’ Mike Sniper that lives underneath Williamsburg’s Academy Records, took place Friday and Saturday of this weekend. Originally set for the 979 Broadway Backyard in Bushwick, Friday’s show ended up getting relocated nearby to the Market Hotel, but Saturday’s remained outdoors, where Woods, Vivian Girls, Thee Oh Sees, Dum Dum Girls, and Kurt Vile all played on the holiday. To bring you these shots, Rebecca Smeyne survived a mosh-pit attack, whereupon her flash got destroyed. Ouch.
