What does it mean to care about your craft? Well, it means sweating it out in knee-length chambray jackets in the sweltering heat and humidity. Decked out in matching outfits, Brooklyn’s own Twin Shadow took to the Skyy Vodka tent, showing up ten minutes early to make sure that all their instruments were in working order before starting their set. Once their set started, it was pure musical magic, as the always tight band played their fantastic songs. Pointing out just how incredibly smelly the festival was on Sunday, the group didn’t hesitate to unleash a musical frenzy that had the crowd dancing around in the six-inch deep mud.
How do you know you made it in the music industry? You perform to a massive crowd, all singing along word for word to your lyrics, all the while you have the biggest smile on your face. That is just what George Lewis Jr. did during his Governors Ball Music Festival 2013 set.
The next day as we were waiting for our taxi to pick us up and take us to the airport, we saw lead singer George Lewis Jr. walking by. After calling his name, he came over to chat with us for a couple of minutes, graciously putting his call on hold. What a nice guy.
