Major Lazer Free Press Summer Fest, Eleanor Tinsley Park June 2, 2012
On Friday afternoon I was talking to fellow Rocks Off-er Neph Basedow about what acts we were most looking forward to at Free Press Summer Fest. Mine was Major Lazer.
"Ohhhhh. I saw them at Fun Fun Fun Fest," she said. "It was the nastiest concert I'd ever seen."
Nasty? Now that really piqued my interest. Apparently the FFFFest show consisted of sometime hype man Skerrit Bwoy daggering female dancers, including daggering acrobatics such as Skerrit Bwoy climbing up a ladder or onto the group's speakers in order to jump off onto his waiting female accomplice. If none of that previous sentence makes sense to you, please watch the video for ML's "Pon de Floor," because that video is exactly the kind of scene I was hoping to see on Stage 1 Saturday.
