N.E.R.D. at ACL

-A.S. It was hot, and none of the bands after Jamie Lidell interested me all that much. I chilled in the media area for a bit, hydrating myself and listening to a little bit of Gogol Bordello. I walked back into the festival area and over towards the direction of where Hot Chip was about to start.
I’ve often written about how good of a performer Lupe Fiasco is. Pharrell might be even better.

I made a game time decision, and decided to stake out a spot for N.E.R.D. Having already decided to split my time between their set and David Byrne at ACL, I figured I might as well get a good look at them. Plus I would be able to snap some shots.

N.E.R.D. took the stage 15 minutes late, but nobody cared once they were out there. Pharrell, Chad Hugo and Shae Haley had the crowd in the palm of theirs hands from the get go. The massive crowd chanted back “ADHD” as Pharrell ran, skipped and jumped across the stage during “Anti Matter.”Pharrell never once stops moving during their show.

“Sooner or Later,” which is undoubtedly my favorite track off of the new album, Seeing Sounds, transferred great to the live show. As much as I was enjoying N.E.R.D. and my sweet spot, I knew I had to head over to David Byrne.

    Thanks for posting. I actually ran into Shae and Fam-Lay on 6th.. Was hoping Pharrell would be in crew. They went over to Stubbs to catch Gnarles Barkley
