    It was a really good set from what I saw. I had no idea what to expect, and they put on a great show. The music was mixed not quite to my taste (I'm a sound engineer), and the bass was a little strong, but the dancing and weird shit really pulled it together. Assuming it's mixed a little differently, I wouldn't miss it if I had another chance to see it, and might try to get to it earlier than I did if I had the energy. I'd say, 4/5, and would suggest listening to them if you haven't already, because the dancing would be more fun if I had known what the songs were going to look like.

    So much fun. Lots of dancing, and the weirdness on stage and energy in the crowd was perfect. I missed the first half of the set because some friends said I had to check out Fitz and the Tantrums (also pretty fun, actually). I wish I was going to W2 so I could see the entire thing.

    They were one of my favorites from sunday. First time seeing them but i've been listening for a long time i'd say they pull off an excellent live rendition. Can't speak much about the actual onstage performance as i was lying down in the back the entire time but the music was great

    I was up at the rail for this. It was my must see for Sunday. They did not disappoint. The base was really strong. Aside from that, fun, exotic, great crowd, dancers and beats!

    One of my favorite sets of the weekend. Loved the unique sound, but definitely get to a spot where you can see the stage! I am planning to see them again whenever i get the chance.

    Awesome. More of a performance than just a concert. The crowd was definitely into it and the tent was packed when I got there, ended up just barely squeezing in on the Gobi side.

    Great set. Be on the rail. Girls in the crowd were sexier than any other set. And the animal heads...

    It was fucking terrific. I had high hopes after watching some of their Mayans vs. Aliens show on YouTube but was surprised by how much I loved the set and how much I danced.

    Outstanding set and DEF one of the highlights of Sunday/the entire weekend. Had no idea what to expect as I really didn't know too much about them, but 2 of my 3 friends I was with said they were "a must see" and now I'd recommend the same for everyone else going this weekend. Was about 20 feet from the front just right of stage center and was having a blast for their entire set. Was really getting down and digging it for the entire set and the entire crowd around me was feeling the same thing too. Excellent crowd energy, stellar show!

    One of my favorite sets of the entire weekend. The show was unique and I couldn't take my eyes off the dancers/performers. They definitely got me feeling weird and funky, so needless to say I was getting down. Loved all the energy that was oozing from the crowd. Do not miss this! There is absolutely nothing better going on. (Possibly Thundercat, but you can still catch most of their set anyways).

    They were on my list, but I didn't get to them, mostly because they were in that window of Sunday afternoon where I didn't wanna do anything. (This happens to me every year, i'm all gung-ho on Fri and Sat, but Sunday it takes a lot to get me moving).

    OTH, I saw them at OSL a few years ago when they played there, and thought they were fantastic.
