Best Save: Tanlines
Throughout most of the weekend, sound on the Big Apple Stage left a lot to be desired. Kurt Vile and his band wafted into the breeze and for a while, it seemed like every act was getting lost inside of muted instruments. Brooklyn's Tanlines had it the worst. By the time they got to their triptych of semi-hits ("Real Life," "Not the Same" and "All of Me"), the speakers were crackling so badly that they had to stop and start the finale three times. Ultimately, they got through it and one half of the duo, Jesse Cohen, graciously thanked the audience for sticking around despite the disruptively crunchy beginning. C.L.
