Aloe Blacc

The Treasure Island Music Festival went down over two days on a small island in the San Francisco Bay, juggling two stages and acts that ranged from Death From Above 1979 to Cut Copy to St Vincent. The bands and sets were staggered so that changeovers allowed for the audience to see all of each band which, on day 1, included appearances from Death From Above 1979, Geographer, Aloe Blacc, The Naked & The Famous, Shabazz Palaces, YACHT (who play NYC in December), Battles, Dizzee Rascal, Chromeo, Buraka Som Sistema, Flying Lotus, Cut Copy, and Empire of The Sun...

"Sometimes a performance impresses you simply because of its natural and flawless flow. This was Chromeo on Saturday [10/15 at Treasure Island Music Festival]. The Montreal duo known for creating modern 80s-inspired electro-synth pop got one of the largest crowds of the day moving immediately as they opened with "Fancy Footwork." The hits kept coming with classics like "Don't Turn the Lights Off," "Bonafied Lovin," "Tenderoni" and set closer "Night by Night." Chromeo over the years has cemented themselves as one of the more fun and original acts in electronic music, Saturday was no disappointment whatsoever."

Chromeo, who since played Moogfest, play their first of two shows at Terminal 5 tonight (11/4).

why are SF hipster girls not as attractive as BK hipster girls? Doesn't make me want to move to the Bay area. Silver Lake here I come!

I didn't realize the Cranberries were having a reunion tour. And who's that red haired fuck playing his banjo like a propped-up violin?

There are not many attractive girls in SF. Hippy-ish lazy people in that city.

Maybe yacht is a steve jobs tribute band

Is anyone else afraid of being eaten alive by the Flying Lotus guy? DFA need to lose the flat-irons and learn to play the guitar. Empire of the Sun = poor mans Of Montreal. Chromeo's stands still seriously creep out. And what is there left to say about Yacht?

I've heard rumors that in San Francisco they often blend in some chronic into the hummus. Can anyone confirm?

If so, I'm moving to Brooklyn!
