The fabulous and frantic Janelle Monae came on the stage in a straight jacket (similar to her performance at the Roots Picnic two weeks ago) and broke free giving the audience a superb afternoon.

Getting stoked for XPoNential Fest? Same here. Jenny Lewis put on a kick-butt performance playing tunes from her new album and some Rilo Kiley numbers. Can’t wait to see her again next month.

TV On The Radio haven’t played a show in a minute, opening with “How long has it been since we played in New York?” But they brought their A game and pulled out some awesome tunes.

Legendary hip hop duo, Andre 3000 and Big Boi of Outkast ended the first day of Gov Ball. Or you could say they jump started the whole day, giving an energetic and enthusiastic performance to many excited and nostalgic fans.
