Day For Night Saturday pics (Cardi B, Pussy Riot, Lil B & more)

Lil B’s nonsensical and hilarious set (“WHAT’S UP DALLASSSS!”) riveted everyone in attendance — with sing-a-long verses like “hoes on my dick cause I look like Jesus” and lots of third-person shouts to himself for being a “pretty bitch.” His performance could have been the stupidest of all time, if it wasn’t so goddamn jovial and fun. Back out on the Red Stage, Pussy Riot was tending to the masses with their politically-charged pop tunes while Demdike Stare performed seated on the Blue Stage, to a backdrop of flashing projections and throbbing woofers. The ethereal nature of their music fit perfectly to the relative darkness and light installations within the room.

Back outside, the masses were lined up to see Cardi B on the Green Stage, whose hour long set consisted of 40 minutes of a DJ, 15-ish of the Bronx MC, and a short period for Hood Celebrity as well. Though her actual appearance was short and sweet, she had all of the swagger and ability to live up to the hype.

The main event to many was Reznor and co on the Red Stage, despite set times being bumped up to accommodate for a potential rain-out (which did not happen). Nine Inch Nails hit the stage around 8:45, which was around 15 torrential downpouring minutes after their schedule. Surprisingly, the crowd did not retreat en masse, with a massive chunk of devotees sticking around to catch the band’s abbreviated setlist out on the Red Stage that included classics like “Wish,” “March of the Pigs,” “Closer,” and more. The night seemed eerily similar to that of a year ago, when Aphex Twin hit the same stage and the sky seemed to open up in some sort of cosmic protest.

The above quote is from our review of day two of Houston festival Day For Night. We’ve now got pictures of day two in the gallery above, including shots of some of the artists mentioned above and also Laurie Anderson. Stay tuned for a day 3 gallery coming soon.
