Lupe Fiasco Soundset 2012

2012 marks the five year anniversary of Soundset. This festival was jam packed with music, B-Boys and B-Girls dancing the day away, a car show and graffiti art. Two Main Stages and the Fifth Element Stage delivered 40 artists performing nine hours of music. Unfortunately the fest was cut short due to tornado warnings. It was looking pretty ugly out during Lupe Fiasco so I cut out early. Boy am I glad I did! While walking to the car the winds started to kick up and the rain was on its way. By the time we reached the highway it was torrential downpour. The clouds moved fast and we could see a funnel cloud start to form. Shit was getting real out there!

Even though Lupe didn’t get to finish his set he came out with some awesome energy. Out of the entire festival he definitly made my top 3 acts!

Aesop Rock Rob Sonic DJ Big Wiz Soundset 2012

Ian Matthias Bavitz better known as Aesop Rock was at the forefront of the new wave of underground and alternative hip hop acts that emerged from the 1990s and early 2000s. According from his bio his name Aesop came from a movie he had acted in with some friends that stuck. The Rock part came later just from throwing it in rhymes. Yesterday he hit Soundset with Rob Sonic & DJ Big Wiz.

Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros 8 Cabooze Plaza

5/25/2012 Minneapolis, Minnesota Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros

I have always felt I am a hippie at heart, minus the whole sent of Patchouli. But I have found myself in the need of a hippie fix, what better way than with some Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros! I arrived just in time to snag a beer and some cheese curds before their set in Minneapolis. The band hit the stage fashionably late. The crowd was going nuts since they were able to see the band backstage getting pumped before coming out. Once Alex came out he scoped out the stage. You could tell right away he likes to interact with the fans. As he stood on stage he reached his arm out disappointed he was not within arms reach of the crowd. That did not stop him! Many concert goers reached right back enticing him to get closer. He made his way by hurtling over giant amps to get to his fans. Then tight roped along the barricade. It was pretty awesome! I would like to apologize in advance. The band is giant and there was no way I was able to photograph each member. Many were hidden in corners of the stage and blocked by countless instruments on stage. I think my favorite part of the show wasn’t so much on stage but out in the crowds. Waaaaaaaaaaaaay in the back is what can only be described as a hippie mosh pit. Numerous fans gathered around dancing in a circle together. It was wonderful to see. Those are my kind of peeps!
