We had a nice lil spot staked out on the lawn for MGMT after the Meters finished their set. When DV asked “I’m gonnna grab a drink. You want anything?” I responded no. I just wanted to lay down for a bit before MGMT started. I really only like 2 of their songs (Electric Feel & Kids) but I was still kinda excited to MGMT. That is until everyone else started trickling in. The trickle quickly turned into a flood and I had to leave. Too much hipster.
I watched a couple songs from the back and then got pretty bored with their set. They had no energy and the songs just sounded kinda blah. It did absolutely nothing for me. I had to leave that stage. But I lost everyone and my phone has no service. Sweet.
So I decided to get some pizza from Spicy Pie and check out Ellie Goulding while I tried to figure out how to meet up with DV again. And man was that a good idea. Not only was the pizza excellent but Ellie Goulding was outstanding. Like MGMT, I only knew a couple of her songs, but everything she did sounded awesome. And the crowd ate it up. Very high energy, very dancey and very very good.
Later on that day I saw this bit of graffiti in the port-o-potty. I guess I wasn’t the only one who didn’t enjoy MGMT’s set. Anyway, hope you enjoy Ellie Goulding’s Starry Eyed as much as I did.
