Before you get to see pictures of Elbow, Echo and The Bunnymen, MGMT and Coldplay, performing live at the All Points West Festival in New Jersey, let me tell you a little bit about the moments leading up to the shows. In an unseasonably wet summer, it rained like a futhermucker from the early hours of the morning until about 3 pm (1500 hours). The gods finally smiled upon us and it stopped raining right before Elbow took the stage, but this was just a little part of the trek through Liberty State Park to get to the stages. Luckily, I was dressed head to toe in rain gear, looking pretty fabulous, if I may say so. P.S. The bands were great, so it was all worth it.
