Super Furry Animals, Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks, Twin Peaks, Screaming Females & More Highlighted 4 Knots 2015

Mike Mehalick July 17, 2015 Live, Reviews No Comments

Last Saturday, the Village Voice hosted another perfectly sun-drenched edition of their 4 Knots Festival. With a shift to Pier 84 on Manhattan’s West Side from the South Street Seaport, and paid admission for the first time in the fest’s history, 4 Knots 2015 was a seamlessly run, perfectly booked and a ton of fun.

The lineup stayed true to its previous roots, seducing the indie-rock nerd in all of us with some of the best up and coming acts and two legends as headliners. Twin Peaks and Meatbodies rank among the more riotous sets of the day, while Screaming Females, as they are wont to do, melted faces in tandem with the peak summer Sun.

Heads bobbed, T-shirt sleeves were rolled up and ears were left ringing with fuzz rock reverberations. Or you opted to stay back and find a shady spot to lay in the grass. A nice new accoutrement courtesy of moving locations.

Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks served as a perfect sundown primer for Super Furry Animals who brought their renowned, festival ready live set to the docks of New York City. With another 4 Knots in the books, it’s become clear that the day long water side rock buffet is right up there with Governors Ball on the annual docket of must attend festivals.

First time contributor Julia Drummond shares her shots of the action below.
