AfroPunk Fest 2013: Saul Williams, Vintage Trouble + More Rock Brooklyn – Exclusive Photos

Liz Ramanand, Diffuser

This past weekend, the real party in Brooklyn wasn’t the VMA’s — it was the AfroPunk Festival in Commodore Barry Park. The fest saw incredible performances from a wide range of artists, including Saul Williams, Vintage Trouble, the Heavy and the London Souls.

Williams, a writer and singer known for blending poetry and music, turned in one of the weekend’s most powerful sets, proving he knows how to evoke emotion through both words and sounds. Those who took the stage earlier in the day might have learned a few things from the iconic artist, though neither U.K. alt-rockers the Heavy nor New York’s own London Souls need too many pointers. Both bands rocked the Green Stage with energetic performances.

On day two, Vintage Trouble had fans dancing and clapping as they dominated the Green Stage. The dapper band was dressed to the nines, and their musicianship was undeniable. Frontman Ty Taylor rocked a blue suit and mesmerized fans with his endless spins and bluesy, gritty vocals. Their whirlwind of style and power is one AfroPunk attendees will be talking about for years to come.
