The Music Slut called them “electrifying”, but I’m not willing to bestow such platitudes on N.E.R.D.. If you put me in a corner, I’d say they were “not altogether unpleasant”, but then again, I’m about as fluent in hip-hop as I am Latin. I mean they looked pretty cool on stage, and they had a bunch of dancers and MCs up there, but I didn’t think that the songs delivered. After Pharrell encouraged the crowd to throw their drinks in the air, people started tossing xXx seat cushions at the stage and the whole show kind of went down hill from there. By the last song, all hell had pretty much broken lose when people from the “backstage V.I.P.” section made their way to the front of the stage and started taking cell phone pictures with members of the band. All in all, I’m not going to complain about xXx, I had a pretty good time taking pictures and listening to one of my favorite bands of 2004, and on top of that, it was all free. Thanks Diesel! Now where my free jeans at?

More photos after the jump.

PS Pictures of acrobats and strong men are coming later.
