When Greys took over the stage The Wet Secrets had cleared for them, they looked like they had plenty of space to work with, though only before they started to play their music. Their own dynamic performance of beat-peppered post-hardcore saw them bouncing around the platform like heated atoms, their conduct infectious enough to stir up the festival’s first mosh pit this year.

When they weren’t doing that, true to the cultural spirit they address in “Drag,” they managed to spend more time asking people why they were skipping a night of new episodes of shows like Girls and True Detective than they did fleshing out further details of a forthcoming album they teased (they just finished writing it, and it’s coming out in June, they said), even dedicating a song to Lena Dunham (no, she wasn’t present).
