There was no better place to be Saturday night than on a hill in Fort Worth, watching the dust whip behind The Walkmen while the sun set over the skyline.

Panther Island Pavilion, the crook in the Trinity River north of the city, is new and raw. Right now the infrastructure is basically nonexistent. But the potential is there, as this year's Fort Worth Music Festival proved. They set up strings of lights in the trees and three stages spread over the grounds. There were vendors and VIP sections. Delta Spirit played recklessly and Allen Stone made us all put away our cell phones.

So we did, and he pointed out that social media isn't all that social at all. He encouraged "hand-to-hand combat," meaning getting out and shaking hands with someone. He sashayed, and the crowd sashayed with him. Here's what it all looked like:
