War on Drugs / Mikal Cronin / Higgis WBMB / Panda Bear @ Austin Psych Fest 5/4/2014
At dusk, Mikal Cronin began his performance on the Reverberation stage. A few fans ran from either the swing tree, hammocks, or other shows to catch the hardworking Los Angelian. Smoke clouds appeared on stage and on the screen backdrop. Once the band got started, the members went all out and thrashed their long hair around. Cronin requested that the sound system "blast the drums and guitar." Blue lights cast upon the stage and audience as he performed "Apathy" off of 2011's self-titled album. Throughout the set there was crowd surfing, dancing, clapping plenty of hollering. At one point, Cronin brought one of his friends on stage and serenaded her "Happy Birthday." She threw cupcakes into the audience and shoved one in the guitarist's face. The fans loved it. - [mxdwn.com]Austin Psych Fest 2014 came to a close on Sunday (5/4) with sets from The War on Drugs, Mikal Cronin, wild Japanese/UK quartet Bo Ningen, reunited Brits Loop, Animal Collective's electronic wizard Panda Bear, TV on the Radio offshoot Higgins Waterproof Black Magic Band, and more.
