Major Lazer
May 15, 2010
Grand Central

Crowd control issues aside, Major Lazer's Skerrit Bwoy put on one hell of a show along with Diplo, Mimi, and a cavalry of dagger-ready dancers. Sure, Switch was M.I.A. (no pun intended), but no one in the crowd seem to care. Even Grand Central's A/C system wasn't a match for the sweaty mess that ensued.

What we said:

If you must know

how crazy it got, both Skerrit Bwoy and Mimi managed to shimmy up the

rafters and do some rather dangerous dance moves that had me thinking I

hope they get paid well to do what they do.
