The inaugural Catalpa Festival – the latest in a long line of events vying to gain traction in New York's notoriously fickle festival scene – encountered a wet and muddy Randall's Island over the weekend of July 28th and 29th. But despite the occasional downpour, the fest launched in fine form, with blistering sets from the Black Keys, Umphrey's McGee, the Sheepdogs, and Matt and Kim all leading up to a climactic closer from Snoop Dogg, whose latest alter-ego Snoop Lion didn't make an appearance. Here are some highlights from the fest.
