Sunday’s lineup was classic All Things Go, featuring some of the best synth-pop and general pop talent out today. The highlights of the day included the keytar solos and dance moves of Great Good Fine Ok, an arena pop-like performance from Betty Who and her backup dancers, and an especially Springsteen-esque, reach-for-the-skies pop music from Jack Antonoff of Bleachers. Foster the People closed out the weekend with songs that drew from their three albums as well as some covers, like The Ramones’s “Blitzkrieg Bop.” The band didn’t play their biggest hit “Pumped Up Kicks,” likely in light of the Las Vegas shooting, and after explaining their sentiments of the political and social climate of today, they played a cover of John Lennon’s “Love.” But in a day that featured some great music and (unfortunately) very humid weather, one of the most memorable moments came during “Coming of Age” as the rain started to fall. The combination of the song with the refreshing rain and the coming end of a long weekend at Union Market brought the crowd’s spirits even higher. Unlike last year, this rainfall was a lot more welcome.
It remains to be seen if All Things Go will continue to follow through with this unique three-day, multi-genre format, but with the 10,000 people that came and went this weekend, all things hopefully point to likely.
