BEST CAMEO: RIVERS CUOMO WITH STEVE AOKI
Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo is about the last person you’d expect to see at a dance music festival rife with glowstick-toting teens, yet there he was in a green jacket and pink shirt Friday onstage with Steve Aoki. The Pinkerton purveyor sang a yet-to-be-released, untitled tune planned for the follow-up to Aoki’s last full-length, Pillowface & His Airplane Chronicles. The jury is still out on this still-raw song, but the moment was a fun one for those who caught it. Otherwise, Aoki’s set was mesmerizing, replete with the aforementioned Lil Jon cameo, stage diving, scaffold-climbing, and a set loaded with the producer’s new, rock-leaning material.
