PWRFL Power was fun. One guy, one guitar, good times. While I don’t know that I would ever buy an album, I would definitly pay to see him live again. But I’m a pushover for witty song writing.
Natalie Portman’s Shaved Head was a highlight. They were one of the bands that I was really looking forward to seeing, and the show didn’t disappoint. I’m very impressed with the charisma of these kids. One of the better performances I’ve seen in a while, in addition to the music (which is super fun and danceable). And I think some of their parents were there – how freakin’ cute is that? [pix]
Chromeo: So, apparently I live in a dark cave in the middle of nowhere. I had never heard of Chromeo prior to seeing the block party line up, but I love the name. This is how I pick my music. Friends had good things to say as well, so I made sure to catch their set. The music was a little more electronic than what I usually listen to, but still good. There appeared to be slight choreography, which is never a bad thing, and they seemed to be having a good time on stage.
