Theremins and Rocket Balloons: Octopus Project Live


All summer, Vulture will be bringing you video of the amazing lineup of shows taking place at McCarren Park Pool. Every Monday we'll talk to the bands and the fans and highlight particularly amazing (and egregious, when appropriate) moments from the past weekend's show.

Octopus Project brought a thousand rocket balloons to their show and passed them out to the audience, instructing them to let the balloons sputter off into the air as the band played its space-age punk rock. We've got original video coverage of the day's events, including opening act Erase Errata.

New York is the official media partner of the McCarren Pool Parties.
