On Wednesday night, Ground Control Touring celebrated its 15th anniversary by turning New York City's Webster Hall into the best party in the goddamn United States of America. The event, which was presented by Noisey, had a lineup that was beyond lit—featuring (*gasp*) Deer Tick, Felice Brothers, Kurt Vile, Lee Ranaldo, Parquet Courts, Rainer Maria, Steve Gunn, Superchunk, Waxahatchee, Woods, Beach Fossils, Frankie Cosmos, Hop Along, Perfect Pussy, Porches, Screaming Females, Speedy Ortiz, and Titus Andronicus. Did you miss out? Sorry to hear that, but our photographers Sachyn Mital and Dana Distortion were there to capture the madness, a night that featured pretty much everybody on that esteemed list hanging out together, both backstage and on stage. Relive the night below.
