Jimmy Eat World won Spring Fling! These sketches were particularly hard because that's when the moshing and the darkness started.
Jimmy's spectacular smoke/light show plus his fellow vocalist/guitarist. Some (drugged?) guy kept collapsing, but I tried to get him to lean on me while I leaned on him so he wouldn't fall and I could have a steady support while drawing.
Whoever hired Sean Kingston should be fired. Whoever hired the Roots should be lauded.
It's proof that rap can win over a rock fan, as long as it's rap worth listening to! Kingston could have been lip-syncing or just playing his CD for us and it would be a similarly dull, boring experience.
But the Roots put on a show, though. Really great! I feel much better for having experienced that act.
This guitarist from the Roots was incredible. The band itself was completely entertaining. But let's not risk any more rap; hopefully next year is rock heavy.
A (drunk?) girl asked me to sketch her and boyfriend, but he subtly declined. I think he was embarrassed, so I just drew a happy face.
