Dacoit, a band compromised entirely of UT students, shook up the living room of Eden House with their opening set. Together, with a few crowd-pleasers, Dacoit played originals, including “I’m Not Sure.”

After their set, the members of Dacoit relaxed among the misplaced furniture on the lawn of Eden house, excited to be spectators, as well as performers, in the festival.

While waiting for the start of the next band, one spectator lounged on a swing in front of French house, the third venue for the West By festival.

The festival moved on to French house when Red Blue One Two began their set with an energetic pop punk sound that got everyone moving from the ground up.
