Matisyahu - Weiss

The whole Matisyahu thing sure does seem like a shtick when you look at it on a surface. But, when you see him perform, you realize it's the real deal. Spirituality comes in all shapes and sizes. To express this with music is a real gift. The most memorable moment was when, mid-song, Matisyahu and his entourage of hassidim took to the crowd and climbed up to the viewing area to do a hora in the sky. Orthodox Jews in their wool and tsitsis sliding down the railings... this was a sight to see. We passed a happy crowd at O.A.R. as we made our way to Explosions in the Sky in the Swamp Tent. By the end of their set, it was dark outside, which made their intensity that much greater. Coming out of an EITS performance feels as if you've just been through a journey that simultaneously took you to the outer reaches of the universe and the innermost part of your mind. Truly awesome. After EITS the tent transformed into a dance club as Girl Talk rocked turntables and mashed it up for the spinners.
