We've got to hand it to the folks at IHEARTCOMIX: there's no better place for a party than the rooftop of a downtown parking garage. Spinning a full-length set of electro without sounding -- well, exactly like Daft Punk -- isn't as easy as it once was, it seems but Simian Mobile Disco managed to pull it off and get the party started on the right foot. Brooklyn dance-punks Matt and Kim, meanwhile, kept the crowd dancing and smiling to boot. Closing up shop, Diplo featured a number of high-profile guest stars like Spank Rock and Kid Sister but it was quite clear from the response that Diplo himself was the man of the hour.
