    Escape to New York Preview– Day Two

    The headlining act for day two is Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, an indie folk/pop group based in Los Angeles and fronted by Ima Robot’s Alex Ebert. The Vaccines, of London, will be performing polished garage rock. I’m really excited to see English post-punk group The Psychedelic Furs.  A six-piece Brooklyn-based indie rock band, White Rabbit, is also set to provide a great high energy set.  The Willamsburg-based dream pop quartet Au Revoir Simone will provide some innocent and lovely electronic tracks.  An electronic folk group, The Submarines, will bring a rousing twist to classic folk sensibility. Graffiti6, another London-based act, will be a fantastic mix of pop and psychedelia with a hint of R&B.

    Are you as pumped for this festival as I am? If so, you can still pick up tickets at Stony Brook Southampton, and walk-ups after 5 p.m. are only $30. That’s a bit over 6 hours of music and fun for only $30.
