it was sooo good. sweaty and dancey in the best of ways. balloons and confetti galore. matt stage diving, kim booty dancing. if i figure out how to get videos off of my phone ill upload their encore from the first row dead center.
Saw them last night. What an awesome show. There was so much energy in the crowd, you could really feel the crowd feeding off their energy, and them feeding right back off the crowds energy. Been a while since I saw so much audience participation, they had everyone person in there singing and jumping. They both look like they're genuinely having so much fun up there, not like most bands who look like they're just making their rounds for the night. Kim deserves alot of credit. While she's far from the best technical drummer I've ever seen, she does what she does really fucking great. She kicks so much ass, and has more personality and stage precense then I've ever seen in a drummer before. She looks like she's having such a blast up there.

Went to this set without ever hearing anything by them and I loved it. I don't even usually listen to that type of music but they were great performers and you could tell they were so excited to be there. Hope they get invited back next year!
The vagina wipes and ball powdering comments were hilarious. Most crowded day time tent show I've ever seen.
i was to the left of the soundboard underneath the back of the tent, from what i heard the crowd was pretty thick almost back to the fountain. i knew they would get a good crowd, but i was surprised it was that big.
the energy in that set was amazing though, they are welcome back any time they please IMO
I was way back. Couldn't get closer fer a few reasons (crowd was one of 'em). What I managed to catch, some 15-30min, was groovy. But I do wish I could've been closer and more into it, but alas schedule conflicts.
