    FUCK! The fall out contiunes...
    http://www.wpix.com/news/local/wpix-...,3019725.story
    JERSEY CITY, N.J. (WPIX) - Anyone who attended the All Points West Music and Arts Festival in Liberty State Park this past weekend, knows all about the nightmare conditions that many ticket holders had to deal with, as they made their way through the park.

    Torrential downpours coupled with nearly 75,000 on-the-go concert goers and several loads of equipment, caused a muddy mess at the 1,200 acre park, and now officials are calling on the group who put together the festival to clean it up.

    Coldplay front man Chris Martin even took note of the messy conditions at Liberty State Park, referring to it as a "mud Jacuzzi" during his band's performance.

    Sam Pesin, President of the Friends of Liberty State Park, explained that the producers of the show, AEG Live and Liberty Event Management are contractually obliged to "return the park to the state it was before."

    Friends of Liberty State Park, the non-profit group dedicated to the preservation of the grounds, believe that the park will be returned to its normal condition.

    "(A park official) mentioned that he felt sure that it might take awhile, but the grass will come back to the way it was," Pesin said.

    Ken Tesler, a producer with Liberty Event Management, said the clean-up process at the park has an "immediate" time-frame.

    All Points West organizers say they will restore trampled ground at Liberty State Park
    by Carmen Juri/The Star-Ledger
    Tuesday August 04, 2009, 7:00 PM
    Trampled grass and a sea of mud remained at Liberty State Park in Jersey City after last weekend's All Points West festival, but organizers say they are committed to restoring the park .

    "We pride ourselves on leaving the park in better condition than how we found it," said producer Ken Tesler of Liberty Events Management. "When there's damage like that, we fix it."

    The ground at the All Points West Music and Arts Festival in Jersey City on Sunday. The concert's organizers said they are committed to restoring the quality of the trampled ground at Liberty State Park.

    Because of the weekend's heavy downpour, the three-day rock festival, jam-packed with high-profile bands as My Bloody Valentine and Coldplay as well as lesser-known indie groups, turned into a muddy mess. The mud, combined with heavy equipment and over 70,000 visitors, destroyed some areas of grass.

    The tremendous amount of rain in a very short time did not give the field time to recover, said Tesler.

    "This was insane. We had more rain in two days, between the set up and couple of days of the event, than we've seen in a very long time. This was not a normal situation, but it's not something we can't deal with."

    Tesler said a team of site restoration experts are surveying the damage and plan to begin to add seedlings and fertilizer to the areas that need to be reseeded.

    "With the amount of rain, you get to the point where the park can only soak up so much rain," he said. "There's always wear and tear but this time there was more than the average."

    Prior to the event, Liberty Events placed a protective covering mat under the stage, which flattens grass but does not kill it.

    "Even in places where there is mud, my understanding is that there's still grass underneath that," he said.

    "In a matter of days, you won't know a stage was there," he said.

    Sam Pesin, president of the Friends of Liberty State Park, said the festival produces revenue for both the park, which gets a percentage of sales, and the state of New Jersey, which earns tax dollars from beer sales. It's also a good way to draw the public to the park, which is one of his group's goals.

    Producers are donating $2 per ticket to the Friends group, a nonprofit dedicated to improving Liberty State Park, Pesin said. Ticket prices were $89 apiece.

    "I am confident that these producers are extremely responsible people and I'm sure they will do an excellent job," he said.

    For Pesin, the festival was the 1969 Woodstock rock festival all over again.

    "The mud at this festival reminded me of Woodstock. Both (festivals) had really good music and really good people enjoying The festivals do give people hope for the future," Pesin said. "When people get together to have a shared positive experience, it's a worthwhile experience."

    Look, it would be great if this festival could really grow into a legitimate Coachella East or at least mildly comparable. But as much as I want Jersey to have a fest and as much as I love Goldenvoice, it's just really really hard to justify spending the money required to attend this thing even for me, and I get free lodging when I go. The acts are few and far between, and this year with the rain (which will never stop being a problem if they keep holding it there around that time of year--it'll get rained to all fuck at least half the time I assure you) their changes to the layout of the stages which would've been great if it'd been sunny turned into a fucking disaster. Having to walk even just from the main to the middle stage in all that shit was arduous and gross and a big pain in the ass. I had practically no interest in seeing EDC as we were walking away from MGMT but even if I'd wanted to extend the festival's worth a bit by going and watching some mediocre French house performed from a cheap cheesecloth cube version of the pyramid, Sprak and I couldn't possibly be bothered to trudge through all the muck to get all the way down to the tent.

    I'm not blaming GV. It's not their fault--they have a limited potential for return on this thing as a lot of people in the area are still not sold on the idea and they can only count on so many people turning out so they can't book the volume of acts that Coach or comparable fests can. But after showing up at 2 pm on Saturday--the nicest of all the days--I had absolutely no desire to get there any earlier than the second SSPU was going to take the stage on Sunday. I'd rather sit around with my thumb in my ass up in JC eating actually good pizza than fucking Spicy Pie and watching a bootleg of Wolverine Origins. Which, incidentally, made me so fucking angry I might have to kill whoever wrote it.

    Bad news for Paulie, but much respect (again) for showing balls of steel, during these volatile financial times, to try and spread the Coachella love.
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    I had a blast this year at APW and if I lived on the east coast I imagine i'd go again if they have it next year (assuming they had a solid lineup).
