I made an effort this past Sunday to make it out to the last Jelly Pool Party of the summer, as the rumor was a 'Super Special Guest' was going to perform. Super special guest?! Who could it be? Must be someone big, someone good. C'mon MGMT and Girl Talk headlined the final pool parties of the last two summers, so with the anticipation of--I don't know, Jay Z, Kings of Leon, Chairlift, LADY GAGA...the hipsters piled into East River Park clothed in their party jorts. Boy was Williamsburg caught by surprise as the last pool party was basically an extension of Rock The Bells with hip hop acts Dominque Young Unique, Cool Kids, DMC, Doug E. Fresh and Gucci Mane...
Yes, Jelly Pool Party just showed Williamsburg Hipsters what's up.
Line outside of Pool Party--Jorts galore
First beautiful, sunny Sunday in a long time

The boys aren't having any of it--the sun, the music, nothing

Original Beatboxer, Doug E. Fresh "This is how you DougE, This is how you DougE..."
First time I have heard of Gucci Mane
The sun sets on this sad, disappointing non-indie-hipster music day
