The sets were kept short and sweet. Minus the Bear, who have four albums under their belt, only managed to fit in six tracks during their 30 minutes. Adding a sonic bubbliness to their old tunes, the band brought out their new Omnichord synthesizer, which also acts as the namesake for their forthcoming album, 'Omni' out May 4 on Dangerbird Records. The band showcased the newbies 'My Time' and 'Summer Angel' while old songs also fell victim to the omnichord feed.
Next up was Uffie, who apologized to the crowd for her jet lag. "We left L.A. at 4AM," the female MC explained. In an effort to pump up the energy, the mod-coiffed singer "came to rock the party" as the lyrics in her track 'Pop the Glock' warn. With a long-awaited debut out also in May, that includes the track 'ADD SUV' with Pharrell Williams, Uffie's playful and smirky delivery is as playful as her stand-offish rhymes. "I'm an entertainer, not a lyricist," she raps on 'MCs Can Kiss.' "I'm so far from all you girls out there."
During their closing set at the day party, Miike Snow literally lived up to their crowd favorites 'Animal' and 'Black and Blue.' Despite losing the sound to one of their four keyboards, the band trudged on during their six songs. After cat calls for 'Animal' frontman Andrew Wyatt wildly threw up his guitar bruising himself on his head, proving there's no beauty without pain.
