With day one officially in our rearview, it’s safe to say on Friday our Grant Park navigational skills were a bit tighter.
Toronto punk heroes Pup were welcomed as if they were from the windy city, and put together a thrashing set at the early hour of 2pm. It didn’t matter, the mosh pits were still swirling with activity. To keep things moving, we checked out Mura Masa for the second time in a couple weeks at the Pepsi stage featuring a special performance by UK singer songwriter NAO who’s featured on his self-titled debut.
There was a bit of overlay between a couple of the days favourites, so we were only able to check out a couple Majid Jordan tracks before making our way to the main stage for Run The Jewels. Killer Mike and El-P are all about the good vibes; sort of makes us want to start a hip hop group with our best friends. At one point the duo pulled a fan on stage to spit the intro to “Legend Has It”, and he killed it. You have to check out the video here, so dope.
But to be completely honest, our guilty pleasure of the entire weekend was getting to see Mark, Travis and Matt. Blink 182 sandwiched new material amongst fan favourites, and we were okay with that. The energy was high, the sing along factor was at a 10, all in all a great way to cap off day two.
