Gov Ball 2015: We Played 5 Minutes In Heaven With Mayer Hawthorne

Mayer Hawthorne brought the funk and much needed fun to the tired masses of Governors Ball 2015 day three. While many of the shows were too crowded for an intimate connection with the artist past the jumbotrons, Mayer Hawthorne’s kinetic energy changed the game. His audience, aka the babliest babes on Randall’s Island, found every opportunity to dance and fawn over his electric charisma. Much to their jealousy, we spent five minutes in heaven with the suave ‘tuxedoed’ singer on a stroll through Gov Ball land to get the quick and dirty on being a ladies man, his festival favorites, and brand new music on its way.
