"I was kind of hard up for cash recently," began one of many stories that Deap Vally drummer Julie Edwards told the gathered throngs at This Tent. "So we made a deal with a fan at a show where if he bought one of our crop tops, we'd dedicate a song to him." Since the crop-topped concertgoer was in the audience, we assume he was stoked on the shout-out just before "Raw Material," one of many boot-stomping Black Keys-y hard-rock numbers the duo played. But he was not as stoked as the guy who took Edwards up on her next offer. "If a guy wants to get naked, we'll dedicate a song to him, too." Soon, a small patch of fans were pointing at a spot in the audience. "Are you naked?" asked frontwoman Lindsey Troy. "Let's give this man a round of applause. This is what a music festival is all about." Without missing a beat, they found the perfect tune with which to regale him: "Walk of Shame." K.G.
