The lineup on Sunday at FYF 2013 was stellar from the get-go. Jonathan Richman welcomed bright-eyed, bushy-tailed festival-goers at 2:30pm (while other, less chipper attendees were still sleeping) with directives to dance, feel and be less like frozen pizza. Mac DeMarco whipped out some amazing covers including Bachman Turner Overdrive's "Takin' Care of Business" and a fucking incredible, harcore version of the Beatles' "Blackbird." Fear of Men, Poolside and Kurt Vile all delivered solid performances despite the general impatience of the crowd, most of whom were waiting to be rocked into an early-evening, dreamlike stupor by Yo La Tengo and Beach House. At the other end of the fest, a more energized crowd moshed and banged to Baroness and the Melvins, who put on a great show. Solange showed off amazing dance moves and vocal range during her set, demanded more grinding from the audience and then graciously rewarded them with her well-known cover of Dirty Projectors' "Stillness is the Move." Omar Souleyman stood stock-still while somehow simultaneously compelling everyone around him to dance, and MGMT had a loyal crowd get down to all their hits. The night ended with a harvest moon rising over an incredibly, incredibly(!) loud set by My Bloody Valentine, a final "fuck yeah" from FYF 2013 to, well, everyone with a 12 mile radius.
