I saw The Scandals set. They drew a decent crowd and did a great job as usual. It was cool to have Jared singing Diner again at the end of the show. I'm gonna miss that if they play that song on the next tour. I don't know why setlistfm (which is I assume where you pulled that set list from) is listing it as "with The Scandals". It was just Jared. They're also leaving Sammy Kay off "Stay Lucky"
I don't personally care for the Front Bottoms. It's not them, pop-punk is just not my thing (mostly). They seemed to put on a fun show though. And thanks to all the 15 year olds turning the place into a huge mosh pit, my friends and I were able to work our way to the front for Gaslight
So I can't complain.
I agree with all the positive comments regarding TGA's set. It was nice to see them play a festival and not do a "fest set" as people mentioned. Perks of being a headliner! This was also the first time I've seen them in AP when the weather WASN'T terrible, and considering what the forecast had been, that was a pleasant surprise!
Weirdly enough, I think possibly the biggest highlight of their set for me was Astro Zombies. I was already psyched that Pete was joining them for a song but I had long ago given up hope of seeing them cover that song live.
All in all it was a great set with great energy from the band and crowd. Only negative was that much of the crowd, around me at least, didn't seem to know or care for anything off American Slang (including the title track) or all that much for SOS or Senor. It was a Handwritten fan heavy crowd that's for sure. The girl next to me though didn't know '59 Sound (the song) though, that was a first, considering she sang along to like 50% of the set
Couldn't have asked for a better festival experience
