ONLY BUILT 4 CUBAN SPRING FLINX: SPRING FLING 2011

Or, “Make some noise, Connecticut! I gotta catch a muhfuckin’ flight!”

HAI WEZZLEYIN DID U GUYZ HAV GUD SPRING FLING?

The weather surprised us all, Walkmen and Ghost/Rae delivered the respective goods, and Wavves sort of maybe behaved himself (kinda). Belated congrats to Social Committee and all else involved in making this day not suck: u guys r da best, and this lineup fell into place quite smoothly.

Scroll for photos galore, and maybe even a video (quality may vary)!

First up, Wesleyan’s own Flora & Fauna entertained early-bird Foss Chillers starting at 1:00, nailing a half-hour set of the sort of tightly rehearsed, guitar-heavy garage-pop that won them this gig, including recent single releases “Want U 2 No” and “Continental Parties.” (For the uninitiated, Flora & Fauna  are Matt Bernstein ’11, Charlie Ellis ’13, Gabe Gordon ’11, Adam Gunther ’11, and Casey Baird. They’ve been around for a few years. They’re good! If you missed their set, it’s not too late to absolve your sins on the interwebz.)
