Pull Up the People

What some of the audience members lacked in knowledge they made up for in sheer exuberance. Things definitely heated up when M.I.A. took the stage and showered the crowd with her high-octane electro/grime/pop fusion. Her stage presence exudes pure and formless energy. She pounced from one side of the stage to the other, danced with legs flailing and arms outstretched, and cavorted about with backup MC Cherry. She never missed a note as she authoritatively delivered underground hits such as "Hombre," "Galang," and "Sunshowers."

The crowd was nearly euphoric. Hipsters in vintage tees and skinny white ties spun recklessly in front of the stage. A group of girls jumped up on the bar and began dancing. When M.I.A. exhorted clubgoers to "push things forward" before she left the stage, they seemed up to the challenge.
