Well, Boston Calling was a blast last night…  Sharon Van Etten is like a mellower version of Joan Jett and her songs were rather emotive, even more so than on her albums…  Tame Impala was a trippy, psychedelic trip; they would have fit in perfectly at Woodstock…  And Beck kicked some major ass.  His sound is so much heavier live.  And it wasn’t just because concerts are so loud.  He was totally rocking the house out.  At times, you would have sworn you were listening to a metal band.  He was bursting with kinetic energy and so fun to bounce around to.  Not that I could do much bouncing around with my bad back, but I did sway back and forth in my seat throughout his magnificent set…

I’ll have features on all three days of the festival soon…  I’d write more about day one right now but I have to catch the train to Boston already…  In any case, you should definitely come to day two and day three.  I’m so excited about seeing Tove Lo, St. Vincent, Marina & The Diamonds, Run The Jewels and MO today…  All favorite artists of mine…  I’m so happy I could die, as Lady Gaga would say…


Just a reminder that Chet Faker had to cancel due to an injury… The lovely Lucius will be taking his place tomorrow.
