Flower crowns abounded to see the band from NY, (which they said a few times during the set, probably because they were sad they have to go back) who are actually named after a Nirvana song - and the influence sticks. They played almost their whole album Oshin during their time on stage, washing the audience in a warm bath of dreamy, lyrical but still grungy rock. DIIV played a giddy set to a happily sun kissed crowd.
