The terrifying mosh pit at Thee Oh Sees


Neither dust storms nor fists deterred a crowd of loyal noise enthusiasts from bringing FYF down to its knees at Thee Oh Sees’ raucous set on Saturday night.

For almost an hour, our vision was impaired by strangers’ limbs flailing in every direction and crowdsurfers grazing heads. –Paula Mejia
