All Points West Kicks Off

The 2nd annual All Points West festival kicked off today in Jersey City, NJ. The 3 day concert is aiming to become the East's answer to Goldenvoice's other creation, Coachella. Originally slotted for tonight's headliner was the Beastie Boys, who were replaced by Jay-Z after the Beasties canceled their tour due to Adam Yauch aka MCA undergoing surgery for cancer.

Tool headlines tomorrow night, with Coldplay closing out the festival on Sunday.
