Cherub performing “Hold Me” at Hangout Music Fest

We had several different ideas for a backstage performance with Cherub at Hangout Music Fest.  After debating the logistics of a jet ski performance and finding out that they’ve already done a bathroom session in Mexico, we went with the hot tub idea.  It was the end of the festival and everyone just wanted to do a little relaxing.  After carrying around 30 pounds of gear up and down the beach all weekend, I was all for this idea.  Cherub perform an acoustic performance of “Hold Me” right before The Flaming Lips were about to take the stage to perform Dark Side of the Moon.
