Despite the chilly 40-degree weather and early-morning drizzle, the first-ever Boston Calling Music Festival had fans roughing it out together in Boston’s City Hall Plaza, in the hopes of getting close enough to see their favorite musicians’ pores. The two-day fest began this Saturday with hard-hitting sets from festival mainstays like Matt and Kim, Fun., and The Shins, as well as smaller bands like Bad Rabbits and St. Lucia.
When the sun started to peek through the clouds, hyped-up fans brought out the beach balls and their best dance moves. See what you missed below, and find yourself contemplating the purchase of a pair of leopard-print pants.
