But it's not just the fans who enjoy festivals like LouFest. Just hours -- sometimes even minutes! -- after their sets, many of the fest's acts took to social media to share their appreciation for the way St. Louis rocked the hell out.

Talkative on pretty much every social-network ever, Matt and Kim quickly figured out after their rollicking set that they were the king and queen of Twitter.
