So was the OysterFest a bust? Seemed to me there weren’t many people on the pier, though i didn’t wander by until 7:30. Many folks on Sinatra Drive, where you could hear the music clearly, even if you couldn’t see the stage, unless you were the really tall dude.


Definitely a light crowd. The music was ridiculously loud because they did what the did with the Wilco show, no delay tower, so they just cranked the volume which caused the bass to slap back off the buildings and ferry terminal and made it impossible to enjoy.

Food vendors were very good and a great selection of beers and cocktails at usual concert prices.

I feel the promoter got bent over by the cops(Hoboken, NJT, Hudson, and several other departments). There must have been 5 cops for every 10 people. All of them just standing in groups, staring at their watches at all the OT they were earning. Two cops overseeing each line of the extreme pat down at the gate.

I feel that after the past concerts, with the over the top security and awful sound, people just don’t feel like paying the high ticket prices to be treated like a prisoner and have stayed away from Pier A events in greater numbers over the years.
