Video: Wikipedia Files with Neon Indian

Today we are going to try and get as much of the video we shot this weekend to you. Maybe a few will bleed over til tomorrow. We had the idea of doing a real-time upload, but the festival's wi-fi capabilities and laptop power problems prevented us. So we'll make up for it with Wikipedia Files with Why?, Surfer Blood, Eugene Mirman and the one and only, Big Boi. Unfortunately, we couldn't track down Pavement's extra drummer.
But we did catch up with the hot indie-rock band Neon Indian earlier this weekend at Pitchfork. Alan Palomo is the frontman and we talked about his page, which coincidentally doesn't mention why they are called Neon Indian (isn't that what Wikipedia is for?). Alan also talked about their recent performance on Jimmy Fallon, and how nerve-wracking it is playing in front of The Roots.
