Beanies and Baselines: Santogold and The Cold War Kids at the Roxy Chicken Jam

 

This past Saturday dished out some killer jams and sick shredding at the Roxy Chicken Jam held at Mammoth Mountain. A free Santogold and Cold War Kids concert, combined with a few solid days of riding at Mammoth, topped off with a cush ride in the Spy Optic van, made the trek from San Diego to Mammoth a pretty sweet little journey. 

Although the snow was a little slushy, the free concert at the Village at Mammoth more than made up for its mediocrity. The packed crowd brought a great mountain town dynamic to the outdoor show with a heaping portion of dancing boots, sparklers and Coors heavy. Santogold kicked it up with some stage diving action, her infamous metallic backup dancers, and a sexually ambiguous character in a panda hat. After Santogold hyped up the dance crowd, the Cold War Kids turned up the rock factor with killer energy and heavy keys. It’s safe to say the show’s energy and large crowd size made for pretty sparse slopes the next morning. Not that I was awake to witness this first hand, but I could only imagine. Above is a little taste of the Cold War Kids. Sorry about the video quality; dancing and filming make a poor combination sometimes. 

Check out the event photos after the jump. (more…)
