Jarvis and Pelle win this contest, but the dude from
WU LYF is runner up.
Of the bands I saw, Howlin' Pelle was great, and Annie Clark was working the crowd like a fucking puppeteer. Definitely the contest is between those two for me.

The Hives frontman was by far the most interactive with the audience....

He did the best sales job....winner

The kid from Oberhofer had a lot of energy, which was fun for a while. By the end of the set, though, I wanted to force-feed him ritalin.
Lol one of my favorite Thom moments. And the fact that I could cross Karma Police off the Live Song Bucket List was a benefit.The introduction to Karma Police almost had me in tears. "You know when you meet those people who don't want to get to know you, they just want something from you [disgusted noise]... this one's for them"
Jarvis takes the cake though
Random list of shows I'll never remember to edit
Pelle was awesome and the clear winner here.
Lead from Kasabian got everyone pumped and crazy
Le Butcherettes female lead was nuts and got the crowd out of the early day doldrums
Santiagold was more interactive than I expected and made sure people had smiles on.

Pelle- duh lol
Ricky of Kaiser Chiefs- the guy was so fun
Tom and Sebastian of Kasabian- do a great job to pump up the crowd
