Saratoga Nightcap
My Kind of Tourist Trap

Parting Blast

Parting BlastI made it back from Saratoga just in time to catch Yo La Tengo at McCarren Pool, where they're headlining the last-ever JellyNYC Pool Party. The crowd is absolutely massive - they must have decided to do away with capacity restrictions for once - and ready to rock to some loud New Jersey noise. As if on cue, Ira Kaplan sings "Pass the Hatchet, I think I'm Goodkind,"even as they're dismantling the nearby Slip 'n Slide for the last time:

"Can't see for miles
Can't see the pavement for the street
Well it's slide slide slide
Down the water slide
Slide slide slide
Down the water slide"

A bittersweet end to a great run...(More pics after the jump.)
