No! The sweat, and the heat, and gnarly funk of hipster B.O., and the epic 45 minute train ride that goes on forever, and the ridiculous mass of people did not keep me away! I went and I saw and I was blown away. First, hot dog in hand, my socks were officially knocked off by Noisettes' front-woman Shingai Shoniwa who rocked so hard the stage was shaking and who's stage presence and overall aura is not one to be missed. Check out page 92 of the June/July issue of BUST for more on her. Then, I moved to the Stillwell stage to check out the adorable Becky and band that makes up Lavender Diamond.
