    The first-ever All Points West festival took over Jersey City's Liberty State Park over the weekend, bringing in thousands of wide-eyed Radiohead fans on Friday and Saturday and a decent amount of Jack Johnson/Ben Harper revelers on Sunday night. Overall, the vibe was incredibly positive, with long ferry lines from Manhattan moving quickly and three stages keeping the grounds spaced out and not too crowded. Forty-seven artists played over the course of three days, including such standouts as Animal Collective, Underworld, Girl Talk, Chromeo, and a particularly woozy Cat Power.

    According to USA Today, "the only complaints came from beer drinkers, who were relegated to fenced-off areas." Other than that, the paper said, "Radiohead was the one band seemingly everyone could agree on. Bathed in dramatic green, blue and red light, the quintet mixed new songs with old faves, such as 'Fake Plastic Trees,' a gentle acoustic ballad that silenced Saturday's crowd."
