Man, all-ages outdoor music festivals make me feel old. I caught Prefuse 73, who did a fine set, but between the ironic bubble blowing and the weed and the people awkwardly trying to score weed and the people who pushed up to the front and then five minutes later pushed back through the crowd, I kind of got the feeling that ambient urban pastoral techno was not really what the crowd needed. I had lots of hey-kid-get-off-my lawn moments.
