I run past Randall’s Island a lot. It looks like nothing much ever happens there. But this summer, that looks set to change with plenty of reason to venture over. One reason begins with “The” and ends in “Black Keys”, another rhymes with Doggystyle.
The Catalpa NYC festival looks set to make quite the impression with its arrival onto the New York summer circuit. Snoop Dogg will be performing his 1993 debut album in its entirety, and true to the description of catalpa that thrives in the warmth of North America and is known for its large, showy flowers, the event will showcase some of the biggest artists around. Catalpa’s going to have 40 performers from across the genre board – from the likes of Girl Talk to Matisyahu to TV on the Radio and Hercules & the Love Affair, the list just keeps getting better.
