The Drums’ sunset FYF Fest performance packs Lawn stage

Brooklyn indie poppers The Drums packed The Lawn Stage at FYF Fest on Saturday as the sun started coming down.

The performance was chock full of great #WhitePeopleDancing material and you could tell a lot of people were really starting to feel themselves — whether it be due to the awesome tunes or surroundings or some other outside involvement.

“I want to buy you something but I don’t have any money, no, I don’t have any money,” they sang on the track “Money,” a feeling many people might have been familiar with after shelling out $175 for tickets to this two-day fest. The Drums helped make people feel reassured they were getting value for their dollar as their new wave-ish sound was well received.

One highlight of the set was the track “Best Friend,” a very ’80s-sounding synthy pop song that had the crowd moving to the uptempo beat with much enthusiasm.

Sunset sets are hard to live up to but The Drums found a way to do just that.
