Cayucas might be the quintessential Life Is Beautiful band: Mellow, dreamy and lots of fun. The chillwave Angelenos got feet shuffling during their Saturday afternoon set, making the perfect soundtrack for kids sprawled on the grass watching the mural painters next to the Art Odyssey; the organizers would've done well to plant the band along the gallery's central pond and have them play there all day. The band's sound comes across as a hazier version of fest-mates Vampire Weekend, minus the prep-school composure; it drew curious fans on their way to see Dawes over to the Huntridge stage. The set marked Cayucas' first show in Vegas, and judging by the late-afternoon dance party they inspired, it certainly won't be their last.
