We got to Cedar Street Courtyard late in the afternoon. After getting my trucked towed the night before, it was a little of process to get the day started. The Filter Party was running late on set times and it worked out perfectly because we still got to see Lightspeed Champion. We grabbed our beers once again and walked to the front of the stage, on the right side.

Lightspeed Champion was joined onstage by a violinist and Emmy the Great (she's easy on the eyes too). Mr. Champion strummed his acoustic guitar while Emmy provided the backing vocals. She has a pretty voice and compliments him so well. His voice reminds me of Kele from Bloc Party mixed with a softer, folkier side. Glad I got see him.
