Weird Parties in Long Island City

So after the Ting Tings/MGMT Pool Party I ended up and some random black metal concert taking place in a giant warehouse/workspace in Long Island City, right next to the Deitch Long Island City and just feet from the East River.

Needless to say, the view was awesome:

I have absolutely no idea what the name of the band that played was, nor who was actually throwing the party, but what I do know is there were two GIANT pigs roasting on sticks, that were eventually served as pork sandwiches.

Before heading home, I also shot this picture of the CRAZY sky:
