Despite a free Polvo/Obits show on Friday at the South Street Seaport and a dreamy sounding Saturday show in Prospect Park at which Dean & Britta will be performing their scores to Andy Warhol’s screen tests, this week and weekend in NYC belongs to All Points West. On Saturday, APW announced three days and three stages worth of set times. Friday’s showdown between monsters of indie rock Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Vampire Weekend and monsters of old-person rap Organized Konfusion, Pharcyde, and Q-Tip (on the, uh, Bullet Stage, no less) is probably the most intractable conflict here, unless you’re the type of person who just can’t decide whether it’s a Tool or Ting Tings kind of a night. Saturday and Sunday schedules below.
