Phoenix’s FYF performance seizes the night even though set ends 10 minutes early

Phoenix’s Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix album was the album of my 21st summer. Their FYF Fest headlining set on Saturday connected to me on a personal standpoint, as they played their numerous hits from that album, putting into perspective just how things have changed in those five years since.
