"That was amazing," Sean Nicholas Savage said, grinning after his second song. "I just blew myself away! This is a great show." He began the set by reading a romantic poem from a spiral notebook and then, after he turned on his thrift store keyboard, it reciprocated by turning him on. Like some absurdist Wes Anderson outlier, Savage decorated his face with a self-serious smile, singing to some important muse with words of devotion and carnal longing. Framed by the festival's amazing light show (created by Live Action Fezz), Savage often cackled about something or other and was clearly enjoying himself. And why not? He was having a great show.
