Deerhunter was really wonderful. I did not know what to expect but I was really blown away. Bradford Cox is some kind of weird dude and I loved it. The encore was my favorite part, they got really brown and weird.
Dan Deacon was fun as usual. I was wondering if he was going to be able to get the crowd in the square to participate like at a normal show, and it worked really well. I was standing on the side for part of it since I have seen him twice and I needed to save energy for Animal Collective, but I was drawn in at the end and had an absolute blast running in circles waving my arms in Pioneer Square past a bunch of people who weren't quite sure what was going on.
Animal Collective was fucking incredible. They started out kind of slow and then it built into a powerhouse of a performance. They were all really into it. They played My Girls about halfway through so all the bros could go home and I could get closer to the stage as they were getting weirder. Last time they played My Girls they just kind of rushed through it but this time they made it into a really funky party. I wanted to hear Purple Bottle the most of all. They closed with it and played the HELL out of it. I want to go back and see it again right now.
