Diesel Party

Not to be negative - overall a great night, but besides the hour+ wait to get a single drink, the biggest disappointment of Saturday night's free Diesel party was Hot Chip's extremely short set which was slightly made up for by the fact that Hot Chip immediately turned into Chakha Khan's backing band for some more songs - not an amazing feat, but out-of-the-ordinary enough to make it exciting. The entire night was live mashups with M.I.A. and child first coming out to sing with T.I. who then finished his set with Franz Ferdinand as his backing band. M.I.A. later performed with N.E.R.D.
