Chemical Brothers Rock Electric Zoo
Second year for Electric Zoo, and they are gaining a big following. Last year was a complete blast (it’s actually kind of surprising that it took this long for someone to think up an electronic festival with the city as the back drop… brilliant). There was so many good acts; Steve Bug, James Holden, James Murphy & Pat Mahoney (they spun a disco set!!). Richie Hawtin definitely left the most lasting impression for the 2009 festival though.
This year it was a completely different story. There was just one stage, one group, one show to see: Chemical Brothers. They absolutely brought down the house (or festival tent I suppose). Don’t get me wrong, there were a lot of other amazing acts there no doubt, and Randall’s Island was ten times more packed than last year, which is a testament to how successful this festival has become, but as far as I’m concerned, my $100+ was well spent on the first day after seeing the Chemical Brothers.[audio:http://thenewlofi.com/wp-content/audio/2010/09/chemical_brothers-HeyBoy_Hey Girl.mp3|titles=Chemical Brothers – Hey Boy, Hey Girl (Live)]
