Looking for some advice. Heading to Roo in one day, eight-ish hours. I don't know a lot of the smaller bands on the lineup, so I'm hoping someone can tell me what shows are promising to be a good time. I like the high-energy shows of Matt & Kim, or Micheal Franti's in '10. Any show where people will be jumping, drinking, and being merry!
Hope to hear from you all, and see you tomorrow!!!
He's like you made an Ã¼ber troll by taking the worst parts of me (the utter disregard for other people's opinions), Phi (cluttering up threads with memes and adding nothing to a discussion) and Jess (an apparent belief that everyone else is the problem and/or arrogance without self awareness).

This! I saw them this weekend at the roots picnic. I was front row, and it was incredible. The guys were chatting with the crowd all through setup and just bullshitting and having a good time. They love to goof around with the crowd.

Gogol Bordello is one of the most high energy shows I've ever been to. And him being late night... I just can't wait!
J. Roddy Walston was pretty high energy when I saw him open for the Hold Steady (he's playing during Buffalo Springfield too)
Sleigh Bells is pretty high energy as well. Try to get near the front... it kind of tapers off further back (like moreso than most bands)
Florence and the Machine can really get the crowd going as well (I'm sure there's better vids but I was at this show so it's easy to find).
Girl Talk is a lot of fun but having seen Gogol and GT multiple times I'd go with Gogol
I haven't seen the following but I'd expect lively shows from the following: River City Extension, Black Joe Lewis, NOFX (any of the metal/hardcore punk shows will probably be pretty fun), Neon Trees (I know how this forum feels about them but they'll be a packed party on Sunday), Band of Skulls, Atmosphere, Wiz, J.
