BLEND’s Favorite Moments (in no particular order):
When the brainchild of Toro y Moi Chaz Bear thanked the city of Austin for supporting him through the band’s growth over the last decade.
When Toro y Moi invited Kelly Zutrau of Wet on stage for their collab track “Monte Carlo,” where Zutrau showcased her high notes as Chaz Bear kept his sypher strong.
Bear’s happy dance moves that kept the spirits high and the crowd smiling almost as much as he did.
Hearing eight out of the ten new tracks from Outer Peace, which came out a week prior to the show, like “Fading” and “New House”.
When Toro y Moi took it back to his roots with a performance of his first single from 2009, “Blessa”.
Yelling in unison with Stubb’s to the band’s question of “Who Cares about the party?” with “I came to see the band play” during “Who I Am”.
When Bear invited the crowd to “get funky” before dropping “New Beat,” a disco-worthy track from Underneath The Pine (2011).
Singing along to fan-favorites “So Many Details” and “Girl Like You.”
Seeing the joy of the crowd entranced by the synth-heavy dreamy beats— I mean these people were getting it.
