The second and final day of DCode 2012 was very similar to the first, but all magnified by the incursion of The Killers in Madrid. Anyway, The Killers were the main attraction on Saturday and Brandon Flowers played the Jesus Superstar role with little ability to move 18,000 people hyperexcited, either for its impeccable shaved and tight to the leather biceps or the careful choice of hits. The Nevada group came to promote his new album Battle Born ... and well they did. What for some was tacky, for others was pop sublime elegance. For some catchy choruses and for others empty words that acted as a mantra in a concert where you could hear songs like 'Spacemen', 'Read My Mind', 'Mr. Brightside 'or' When You Were Young '. Personally, I don't think it was a bad show. Well, the volume was too low for me (WHY?!), but we had fun. The Kooks made, more if it's possible, a horde of 'popteenagers' (who almost drop thir underwear when Mark Foster from Foster The People took to the stage to play the familiar theme Pumped Up The Kicks) fall in love with them to . I have never been a fan of them, but after their concert, which I found bland and pointless, I think I can say they are not my thing. Django Django, however, we were the funnier. We liked that rare mix of spaghetti western, psychedelia, African sounds and synthesizers. We liked those type shirts pajamas, who cares about fashion? On the other hand, we quite enjoyed the stoner rock of Capsula and the fun dancing of Capital Cities, (we need to act a bit silly too at festivals). Also, we loved the concert of Fira Fem, another national hit.
