Music included a performance on Saturday afternoon by The Little Death NYC featuring Moby – I ‘airballed’ the performance. Sorry, Mr. Moby.
(But I did enjoy his rant on caffeine on the Mobinator’s blog. Seems like he wants more drugs legalized.. good luck with that.)
My visit to the festival was Sunday afternoon and it felt like I missed the party.
A small crowd was gathered near the stage around 3 p.m. as a trio of rappers entertained. Obviously, they weren’t the headline act but they did their best to pump up their listeners.
My fav part of the festival was “the art around the park” as it was called. According to the Howl Festival website:
Over 140 painters paint together on a giant canvas that stretches around the park. Creativity and Community….PURE MAGIC!
It was great.. tons of different styles and ideas and all of it apparently created on the spot. Paint cans and brushes were “in use” on the 6 foot by 6 foot canvases as I walked the perimeter of the park like many others did.
In fact, one artist (pictured below) was using krylon spray paint next to the blue cheese man at the weekly farmers’ market – where you can now get freshly painted blue cheese in addition to overpriced vegetables.
If you’re reading this and it’s still Sunday, September 9, I recommend checking out the ring of art at Tompkins Square Park in New York City’s East Village… but you can hold off on buying any cheese you see.
