Classic of the day: Andre 3000 f. Rosario Dawson - She Lives In My Lap


At Governors Ball a couple weeks ago, we were reminded what legends Outkast are, especially with all the deep cuts they dropped on us in the midst of their dozens of hits.  This was one we didn't expect, and it was pure magic.

Our 11 favorite acts at Governors Ball

 

Now that the dust has settled and we've caught up on our sleep, we decided it was time to list our favorites from Governors Ball a couple weekends ago.  

11. Spoon - One of our favorite bands of all time, there is nothing better than seeing a band so tight, with so many incredible tracks to close out the Big Apple Stage on day 2.  We can't wait to see them again this weekend for NXNE.
 

10. Lucius - We had been waiting a while to see this one.  Lucius made one of our favorite records last year and really seem to only do great things.  Their mid day set on Saturday was totally amazing, everything we could've hoped for.

9. Classixx - Our second time seeing the dynamic duo, however this was a completely different show.  Playing up against Lucius, we had to rush to see both, but managed to catch all kinds of great vibes, including jams with the guy from Gems and Nancy Whang of The Juan Maclean and LCD Soundsystem.

8. Childish Gambino - There's really nothing negative you can say about this dude.  He's hilarious, he's crazy energetic and he is so on point live that you can really only go insane and get right in to it.  About halfway through he brought out Chance The Rapper for a bunch of tunes, which was huge.  A day later, they announced their new ep together.  A once in a lifetime New York show right there.

7. Disclosure - The infamous brothers graced the Honda stage around 4:30 on Saturday and wasted no time turning the packed North side in to a massive dance jam.  None of us could stand still as they performed hit after hit, even bringing out the wonderful Alunageorge for "White Noise"
 

6. Skrillex - This one took some careful consideration.  Even factoring in that he was up against Jack White, and that we had the chance to see him play twice the previous weekend, it was clear to us that we had to see Skrillex.  It was a high energy day going from Disclosure to Childish Gambino to Spoon, we figured the mothership was the best way to end day 2.  Always switching it up, Skrillex did not disappoint.  Awesome show as always.
 

5. Meg Myers - This was a seriously special performance.  Starting us off on Sunday on the main stage when it was so hot your feet were burning just standing on the ground.  Meg Myers gave us an incredible, soulful and passionate set that was for sure one of the most memorable we saw all weekend.
 

4. RJD2 - A long time favorite of ours, we were so pumped to see him on this lineup. We've seen RJ a few times before, but never with this set up with a live drummer and a multi instrumentalist.  Our Saturday started off with all of the RJD2 classics we could imagine and a few new ones, capped off by the man himself playing Ghostwriter in a spacesuit.

3. Run The Jewels - This was the first show we saw all weekend and it set the bar exceptionally high.  El P, Killer Mike and DJ Track Star put on such a professional, high energy hip hop show, you can't help but be inspired.  Two veteran mcs at the top of their game with completely different styles who compliment eachother perfectly.  They are playing a couple shows this week in Toronto for NXNE so don't miss those.

2. Outkast - Obviously, Outkast was our main reason for having to go to Governors Ball.  A favorite of ours since ATLiens came out when we were new to high school, Outkast have always been a huge influence and a massive inspiration.  In their extensive catalog, they don't have a single bad track.  They have nothing but dope tunes, seriously.  They've done such a great job crafting their set to cater to every level of Outkast fan, playing jams ranging from Hey Ya to Hootie Hoo, from Kryptonite to Elevators.  This was a life changing experience, see them this summer if you can.
 

1. Interpol - The other main reason that this festival was a must, was this amazing group of musicians, the one and only, Interpol.  We were almost sure we would never see them again until the Governors Ball lineup was released and there they were.  Headlining the Big Apple Stage on Sunday night and effectively closing out the festival for us, Interpol were absolutely at the top of their game.  Playing a variety of classics plus 3 new tunes from their sure to be amazing forthcoming album El Pintor, our dreams came true and more.  Especially when to our surprise, they returned to the stage after finishing for a four song encore!  At a festival!  It was pure magic.
We can't thank these acts and Governors Ball festival and everyone involved enough.  It was a home run.  We can't wait to go back next year.
