At 7:30 p.m., these four Hungarian rockers delivered a strong, punchy set to their fans in the Champagne Room. The charismatic frontman even rubbed his nipples to the delight of lady fans crowding the front. They played the song, “I Want to Take You to Paris,” which although wasn’t a fan amongst the 826LA kids—joked the frontman—totally was for C.C. attendees.
of Montreal – 8:00pm
Beginning at 8 p.m. at the S.O.TERIK Main Stage, of Montreal made both hippies and hipsters feel at home. They opened with the lascivious tune, “Plastis Wafers,” and played a popular throwback anthem, “Oslo in the Summertime.” One again, they had crazy guest appearances, including a person wearing silk and a gas mask, in addition to characters with sequin capes that when removed, revealed costumes equipped with enormous titties.
Terminal – 8:00pm
Though soundcheck took longer than expected, it gave everyone plenty of time to pile into TAIX’s Front Lounge for Terminal’s set: mellow, pensive indie rock straight out of Denmark. It was the perfect mood setting music for the couple displaying massive PDA near the bar.
Resplandor – 8:30pm
At 8:30 p.m. in the Champagne Room, rock trio, Resplandor—and their simple, yet perfect mix of guitar, bass, and drums—proved that less is totally more powerful. Their dual vocals pleasantly lingered in the listeners’ ears, definitely making the audience wish Peru wasn’t so far away.
The Wombats – 9:00pm
At 9 p.m. at the Redbull Soundstage, indie rock trio from Liverpool, England, The Wombats, led one hell of a lively set. Handclaps were frequent, drumming was excellent, and the raddest of guitar riffs dominated the set. Classic Wombats tune, “Kill The Director,” was a huge success—the crowd clearly loved the line “This is no Bridget Jones!”— as well as their recent single, “Jump Into The Fog.”
Gold Fields – 10:30pm
Packing the room to the gills, Gold Fields cranked up the dance for everyone to the point that they lost power…literally. After the power returning, the band pushed through a sweaty set leaving all parties happy.
Morning Parade – 11:30pm
Hitting the stage a little late, Morning Parade utilized their bright harmonies and dance inspiring tunes to close out the champagne room for the night.
Of Verona – 12:00am
The last artist of the night utilized their anthematic tunes to pull people into the TAIX lounge which was filled with projections on stage and shimmering instrument props.
We just want to send out a huge thank you to all of the artists that performed, volunteers that donated their time, employees at all of the venues, the city of Los Angeles for letting us put this thing on and above all, you, the fans, for supporting good music.
Until next year.
