After a solid morning of work, I made my way to Pier 84 in Manhattan on the Hudson River for the 4Knots Music Festival sponsored by Village Voice to catch a great lineup of indie rock bands on a beautiful summer day.
The festival was a great deal for concertgoers -- only $25 for a GA ticket to see 10 bands, which were a good mix of newcomers, established indie acts, and a few bands worth more than the price of admission alone. For a slight premium more at $50 (and definitely worthwhile), VIPs had access to a boat docked alongside the pier, nicer bathrooms, bars, air conditioning, and a few included drink tickets and snacks. My friends who opted for the spendier option seemed to enjoy the digs. ("I'm on a boat!")
