Athfest 2012: Yip Deceiver gets us groovin'

Friday, June 22nd, 2012 
Yip Deceiver 

Before the Yip Deceiver show, I grabbed a bite to eat in the press tent and ended up chatting with Ryan, the bassist of Reptar.  Man, those guys are just so nice and down-to-earth, no matter how much touring they get up to.  Gotta love 'em!

Then it was time to head over to the Hull Street stage for Yip Deceiver.  I've seen this band several times before, but I always forget just how incredibly fun every one of their shows are.  This one was just plain awesome!  Their bouncy, hyper electronic sound spawned an impromptu block party as nearly every member of the audience got up to move their feet to the joy-inducing tunes. I spotted members of several different bands in the crowd, all bobbing along with the rest and undoubtably enjoying themselves.  Much too soon, the end of their set came, and I know I wasn't the only one wishing for more.  I definitely can't wait to catch them in action again!
As I turned to leave, I noticed the most beautiful arrangement of clouds dancing across the heavens above me, imbued with shades of pink and orange.  According to Matt Daniel (@AthensGAweather on Twitter), these were the rare Mammatus clouds, and I took them as an omen of all of the exciting spectacles and unique experiences that still awaited me during Athfest 2012.
