Veritable smorgasbord music festival Catalpa is coming to Randall's Island next Saturday and Sunday, featuring 3 stages and over 40 artists throughout the hip-hop, indie, reggae and electronic music scenes. The official lineup and full schedule have been announced and are available on the festival's website, with info about tickets, transportation and a pretty ridiculous flame throwing sculpture/structure/DJ booth.
No, really. Check it out for yourself.
Both weekend and single-day passes are still available, and I highly suggest you get on board this dazzling train to Funtown, USA. In recent conversations with my middle-school self, I realized that seeing Snoop Dogg perform Doggstyle in its entirety is on the ol' bucket list of Great Life Choices, so you really do not want to miss out. Added bonuses: TV on the Radio, Girl Talk, Matt and Kim, and Cold War Kids.
Yes, and yes please.
