As expected, it was an incredible week and weekend full of shows, up to the brim with the sounds of the Magnetic Fields, Sharon Van Etten and The War On Drugs, and most notably, Nada Surf's show at the Neptune Theater. We went into Saturday's set with last month's performance {with Say Hi at the Tractor} fresh on our lips and minds, knowing it was going to be a tough night to beat -- but even with triple the crowd and a significantly more cavernous room, the band still managed to bring a good dose of incredible to the table. Matthew Caws & Co. pulled two hours of hits and B-sides from a wide cross-section of their catalog, gracing our ears with everything from tracks like "Blonde on Blonde" and "The Way You Wear Your Head" to "When I Was Young" and "No Snow" from their latest and greatest the stars are indifferent to astronomy, and proving for the umpteenth time that these indie rockers are a full-frontal force to be reckoned with.

Australia's An Horse opened up the night.
