Treasure Island Video: MGMT

MGMT, the headliner for Saturday, had a tough act to follow - they played immediately after Girl Talk, whose show induced an island-wide dance freak-out and culminated with fireworks over the Tunnel Stage. As MGMT started their set, there was literally a frenzied skip/dance/run to the Bridge Stage. It was stampede material. An arms-flailing, high-on-life (and other things) kind of stampede.

MGMT's gotten a bad rap for being not-so-awesome live, but the Brooklyn group rose to their headliner occasion quite well and did what they had to do: played "Electric Feel" and "Kids"  to close out a day of dancing on the island. Check out "Time to Pretend" below.
