Outkast / Damon Albarn / Grimes / Phoenix
NYC music festival Governors Ball kicked off its 2014 edition yesterday (6/6) with sets from the reunited Outkast, Blur/Gorillaz frontman Damon Albarn, Grimes, TV on the Radio, Phoenix, Neko Case, La Roux, Rilo Kiley singer Jenny Lewis, Washed Out, Janelle Monae, Kurt Vile, Run the Jewels (Killer Mike + El-P) and still more.
Outkast's much-anticipated set (like many of their other festival sets this year) started with both Big Boi and Andre 3000 on stage for tons of favorites right off the bat including "B.O.B.," "Gasoline Dreams, "ATLiens," "Rosa Parks," "Aquemini," "Ms. Jackson," and more. Then Big Boi did three songs alone, Andre did three alone (including "Hey Ya!" for which Janelle Monae came on stage to dance), and then another Outkast set. The second set ended with "The Whole World," for which they brought out Killer Mike to rap his verse. Pictures of all artists mentioned (and more), plus Outkast's setlist and a video of "Hey Ya!" are in this post.
GovBall continues today (6/7) with Diarrhea Planet taking the stage in about two hours (12:45 PM), and other sets include Jack White, Spoon, The Strokes, Disclosure, Broken Bells, Chance the Rapper, Deafheaven and more.

"London Grammar straight up killing it. @ Irving Plaza" - Tamara Cabrero
Like fellow Disclosure collaborator Sam Smith, UK synth pop trio London Grammar are now known for much more than their contribution to Settle, and have been selling out shows on their North American tour with Haerts, like last night's BrooklynVegan-presented NYC show at Irving Plaza (4/9). Their 10-song set (encore included) hit a bunch of the favorites from their 2013 EP Metal & Dust and debut LP If You Wait, including both releases' title tracks, "Strong," their cover of Kavinsky's Drive contribution, "Nightcall" and more. Pictures of the show are in this post.

SXSW is no doubt a great way to see a lot of bands in a short amount of time and can be a lot of fun. But it can also be a little much for some.

Over 100 bands will play, including Of Montreal, Merchandise, Mac DeMarco, Chelsea Light Moving, Hunters, Braids, Delicate Steve, Turbo Fruits, Ducktails and loads more.
