Don’t miss our critics’ reviews of all the bands playing Saturday.
*My constants include finding the least-crowded cooling center, unsuccessfully avoid childhood frenemies, and count the number of black patrons in order to assuage festering cultural guilt as a weird black lady.
3 PM: Midday gives me time to wear a friend’s press pass and feel important, eat more food than I anticipated, and check out the goods I’ll purchase and try not to destroy. I’m excited for Coterie jewelry designers Cities in Dust and Ready-to-Stare, and Book Fort.
6:45 PM: Chromatics at dusk is wish fulfillment. Performing any earlier in the day would be an insult to such evening-friendly music.
8:40 PM: Grimes is my new favorite Galactic Fairy Princess. I’m excited to see her close out the night and charm us with her weirdness and spirit.
