Silversun Pickups just finished and the Killers just stared (kicking things off with “Human” and “This is Your Life”).
Silversun was spectacular. They played while the sun went down, giving the band a perfect, ethereal glow that matched their fuzzed-out guitars and singer Brian Aubert’s otherworldy, Billy Corgan-esque voice.
They closed out with “Panic Switch” and “Lazy Eye.” Both were loud and both were wild. Mosh pits formed and I saw more crowd surfers than I had with any other band yet this weekend.
With “Lazy Eye,” the band did an extended noise jam at the end that made the whole crowd go nuts. One of the best bands I’ve seen all weekend.
Alright… headed to Jane’s Addiction after this next Killers song. Will update when the show is over.
