There are big happenings at Pier 36 on the East River this coming weekend. All Tomorrow’s Parties, the highly regarded indie music festival is coming to the Lower East Side Friday-Sunday. The festival, which began in Great Britain, is co-curated this year by Greg Dulli of the Afghan Whigs and features Frank Ocean, the Roots, Phillip Glass and many more artists. Recently, we posed some questions to festival founder Barry Hogan about the decision he and his wife/partner (Deborah Kee Higgins) made to move an American version of the event from Asbury Park to the LES.
The “All Tomorrow’s Parties” music festival has announced new details for its September 21-23 extravaganza at Pier 36 on the Lower East Side. Rising R&B star Frank Ocean has been confirmed for Friday night (hopefully he won’t cancel at the last minute). Ocean was picked by festival curator Greg Dulli of The Afghan Whigs.

There will also be performances from The Roots, Godspeed You!
