Co-sign

First - went to 10:15 - not 10:00 - so an hour 45 - which is a reasonable or better gaslight show

Second - I went expecting a fest setlist. Instead got a hometown/this-one-is-for-the-fans set list. Starting with Have Mercy was 9 kinds of awesome. Biloxi in the 3 spot. Say I won't, Ferris Wheel, Stay Lucky, the reworked Elvis and Expectations, Rivers Edge, Drive, Morphine + scar tissue, Diner. All songs that were semi to really surprising in a fest set. Dance, Wooderson and Blue Jeans for the home crowd.

Third - crowd was perfect. Right amount of crowd-surfing, pushing and shoving and the correct energy.

Fourth - 3 appearances by Jerseys own bands added a bunch.

Front bottoms were a beyond worthy lead-in. Fans of theirs were insane. The band was fun, I enjoyed it.

Setting was perfect.

Pretty much have to agree with everything that's been said here. The band sounded great, the setlist was awesome and a pleasant surprise to anyone expecting a 'festival set.' The crowd was amazing singing along to every song and a decent amount of moshing/crowd-surfing, but those doing that seemed to respect the space of others around them and didn't go flying into people who weren't into that like you often see at festivals.

And I also need to reiterate how awesome The Front Bottoms were. Knew like one or two songs going on, but I was really blown away with their set and their fans and how they hung around after their set. Definitely going to be a band I get into more now and hopefully will see in the future, I suggest everyone here at least checks them out.

I saw The Scandals set. They drew a decent crowd and did a great job as usual. It was cool to have Jared singing Diner again at the end of the show. I'm gonna miss that if they play that song on the next tour. I don't know why setlistfm (which is I assume where you pulled that set list from) is listing it as "with The Scandals". It was just Jared. They're also leaving Sammy Kay off "Stay Lucky"

I don't personally care for the Front Bottoms. It's not them, pop-punk is just not my thing (mostly). They seemed to put on a fun show though. And thanks to all the 15 year olds turning the place into a huge mosh pit, my friends and I were able to work our way to the front for Gaslight Smile So I can't complain.

I agree with all the positive comments regarding TGA's set. It was nice to see them play a festival and not do a "fest set" as people mentioned. Perks of being a headliner! This was also the first time I've seen them in AP when the weather WASN'T terrible, and considering what the forecast had been, that was a pleasant surprise!

Weirdly enough, I think possibly the biggest highlight of their set for me was Astro Zombies. I was already psyched that Pete was joining them for a song but I had long ago given up hope of seeing them cover that song live.

All in all it was a great set with great energy from the band and crowd. Only negative was that much of the crowd, around me at least, didn't seem to know or care for anything off American Slang (including the title track) or all that much for SOS or Senor. It was a Handwritten fan heavy crowd that's for sure. The girl next to me though didn't know '59 Sound (the song) though, that was a first, considering she sang along to like 50% of the set  scratch  

Couldn't have asked for a better festival experience cheers
