Photos: Day 1 of “All Tomorrow’s Parties” at Pier 36

Independent music festival All Tomorrow’s Parties is going strong at Pier 36 on the East River all weekend long.  Bahram Foroughi, whose photos you’ve seen on The Lo-Down from time-to-time, is documenting the festival happenings for us.  ATP moved to the Lower East Side this year following a stint in Asbury Park.   The event, “I’ll Be Your Mirror,” is being co-curated by Greg Dulli of the Afghan Whigs and ATP founder Barry Hogan, who we interviewed the other day.

The headliner last night was rising R&B star Frank Ocean, fresh off his Saturday Night Live gig. But ATP is nothing if not eclectic, so there were lots of highlights, including a fairly brief cross-generational performance by Phillip Glass and Tyondai Braxton.  Also showcased was ear-splitting Providence-based band Lightning Bolt, a duo known for mixing it up in the crowd rather than staying on stage.

Also featured last night: Edan the Deejay, spinning everything from Middle Eastern rhythms to the Talking Heads. And, as a reminder that ATP is not just about music, there was also a comedy lineup headlined by Janeane Garofalo.
