Rainbow Coalition

The Brazilian electro-rock group Cansei de Ser Sexy got the second day of the festival off to a most colorful start. The main stage was decorated with a few dozen balloons; the playful, percolating songs (about alcohol, holidays and sex) were bold and bright; and the group's irrepressible singer, Lovefoxxx, wore a spangly, form-fitting
Technicolor bodysuit. Rowr.

There were also, for some reason, three people dressed as green shrubs dancing around the stage. "This is the happiest day of our lives with those dancers," Lovefoxx said.

At the end of the charming if chaotic set, the band sprayed the crowd with multi-colored confetti and then retreated backstage. For a round of Red Bull and vodka, no doubt.
