This article is from 2009.
Mercifully the sun shone for us this year at The List Festival Party.
Japanese drummers enthralled the crowd as a stilted dancer busted his moves, while air guitarists strummed along to any and all of the music. The Body Tights Men provoked giggles in the Bosco Tent with their crazy physical capers, The Pajama Men were especially hilarious after a few ciders, The Dirty Brothers freaked everyone out and Ali McGregor wowed everyone with her astonishing voice – the girl's got range.
