Outside Lands 2011: Big Boi Doesn't Perform, Brings Out Dave Chappelle Instead

See video

Due to some computer glitch (it was tempting to yell out "is there an Apple Genius in the house?"), Big Boi didn't perform. The crowd waited nearly an hour for them to get it together, eliciting a sea of cringeworthy boos. To appease, Big Boi came out at one point, saying he'd been waiting back stage for two hours himself, having dinner with Dave Chappelle. He then paraded a reluctant Chappelle on stage, who stood in awkward silence for a few minutes until someone handed him a mic. A few jokes about beach balls at concerts turned the boo-ing into laughing for a few minutes. Boo-ing re-commenced when Big Boi's manager came on to proclaim that "they'd rather do no show than a half ass show." One of the more bizarre episodes we've seen at a festival.
