Major Lazer @ Kanrocksas 2011

While everyone and their neon-clad mother headed over to Bassnectar on the Main Stage, a few of us made our way over to the Critical Mass Tent to check out Major Lazer. The reports from Pitchfork 2010 told us that Switch and Diplo throw a crazy party and one not to be missed. No Chinese lion dancer this time, but the hype man and dancer/contortionist definitely sufficed in keeping bodies dancing.

The Good: Lady doing handstand splits on top of a stack of speakers. All of the St. Louis photographers knowing what was up and heading to this show. Switch and Diplo looking super-classy in their suits.

The Bad: When trying to take pictures in the center of the pit, the bass coming out of the front speakers physically hurt so much that I couldn’t bare standing there for more than a few seconds at a time.

The Irrelevant: Major Lazer is helping out No Doubt with their new album. Anyone else super excited about that?!?
