PANORAMA SATURDAY RECAP: The Best Day For Music
  • MONDAY, JULY 25, 2016

  • Posted by: Kirsten Spruch

Although the entire weekend promised amazing music, Saturday in particular had some of the best acts. We caught Blood Orange, Kendrick Lamar, Sufjan Stevens, and more, and they all blew us away.

Blood Orange

I'm a big fan of Dev Hyne's solo project, Blood Orange, and something about his live show only enhanced the love that was already there. He was freely dancing around the stage and laughing, and at one point admitted that he almost forgot to add his most popular song, "You're Not Good Enough," in his set list.

Foals

Man, can Foals rock. They have darker, heavier songs that you can head bang to but then they also have catchy pop/rock songs like "My Number." A band for everyone.

Kendrick Lamar

Both visually and musically, Lamar delivered a high energy set that turned everyone's brain on and opened our eyes to the current state of the world. And he also played a bunch of bangers.

Sufjan Stevens

Personally (and unexpectedly), Sufjan Stevens delivered my favorite set of the entire weekend. His 2005 album Illinois was theatrical and orchestral while last year's Carrie and Lowell was minimalistic and sparse, and while both beautiful, I was unsure how he would blend them all together to create a cohesive live set. I wasn't expecting him to rearrange every single song, but that's exactly what he did -- and it totally worked -- sounding bigger and fuller than ever. This was the one set that I could watch forever.

The National

I'm pretty sure Matt Berninger was ACTUALLY drinking a full bottle of wine on stage, because whenever he wasn't singing, he was pacing around the stage, sipping on something in a red solo cup. But hey, he sounded great.
