After kicking off day two at The Levi's®/FADER Fort NYC with a Bass Ale and a Tan Lines set full of our favorite songs (they played ""New Flowers," which is actually the only Tan Lines song we've heard, so we were happy), we caught Passion Pit experiencing Being Popular In 2008, which means MTV will film you as you get free jeans and also as you play a note-for-note perfect live rendition of "Sleepyhead." After that, we spent a solid couple hours sipping Sparks and Southern Comfort in preparation for Friendly Fires' stadium-ready set. It started out with a couple equipment issues but ended with a dustbuster played through a guitar and a percussion heavy rendition of "Paris." Death Vessel closed out the night to a small and exhausted audience of stragglers who wanted to stick around to catch Joel Thibodeau and his angelic voice backed by a full band including a dude playing stand up bass. Stay tuned for more coverage from The Levi's®/FADER Fort NYC, and check out some pictures from Wednesday after the jump.
