With its 100th post Scotch and Murder is pleased to announce, in honor of the FIRST EVER Governors Ball (NYC, June 18th 2011), we will be doing a series of features on the festival and its artists. Think of this first installment as an introduction to a festival we believe will be thoroughly kick ass and hope becomes a part of New York City for years to come.
The line up is simply killer, featuring some Scotch and Murder favorites including: Neon Indian, Miami Horror, Pretty Lights, Girl Talk, Empire of the Sun, and the festival recently added Das Racist to the show. This collection, and the fact that there are no overlapping sets, is evidence that whoever put this Ball together had you, the music fan, in mind. Each artist is known for the their epic and awe inspiring performances. Which is why we believe the Governors Ball will be one of the most intimate concert experiences to date. Beside that you will be in New York, on an island, in the perfect summer weather, whats not to love.
Are goal you ask? To make the Governors Ball the New York summer festival for generations to come. NYC currently lacks its staple music festival and that pains us here at Scotch and Murder. Chicago has Lollapalooza, Miami has Ultra, Los Angeles its Coachella, and even Tennessee has Bannaroo, but the best city in the world lacks an epic music festival. Its time to make music history in New York, we've got our tickets, do you?
