"It's become something of a tradition that we close down the Garden Stage with an amazing Minnesota band," said The Current's Andrea Swensson, introducing Bad Bad Hats. The Minneapolis indie rock sweethearts played songs from throughout their discography while the sun began to set. Singer/guitarist Kerry Alexander shared anecdotes with the crowd about the band's songs, including "Nothing Gets Me High," which she explained is "both literally true and also a metaphor" for how falling in love later in life never feels quite the same as the butterflies of a budding teenage relationship.
