Silversun Pickups got rained out the night before Rock the Garden, and they managed to mold that extra energy into a set that was easily more than double what anyone might have expected.

    Just wanted to chime in here and say that these guys are my pick for best performance of the night. Their performance of “Lazy Eye” just blew me away. These guys and Dan Deacon won me as a fan for life (and Bob Mould and Metric were both extremely good, too, but I’m just not as big on their music).
