J. Cole, Reignwolf, Shakey Graves and More from Day Two of Suburbia Fest.

If there's one thing that stands out about the second day of Plano's Suburbia Music Festival, it's this: The whole thing just felt more intimate.

Sure, maybe the slightly cooler weather had something to do with just making the whole thing a more enjoyable affair, with audiences more like to relax out in the fields and in the sun than they had been on Saturday. The wind was nice, too — although it, in turn, meant a whole lot of people running long distances to chase down hats that had blown off of their heads.

But, really, it was the performers who most of all made the day memorable. And, more than anyone, J. Cole did that quite well — even if that wasn't his intent.

After smooth-talking and flirting with his female fans through his microphone, Cole, rather humorously, tripped while running across his massive stage. He sold the move, staying on the floor much longer than incumbent and even flopping around like a fish, but, make no mistake: It wasn't part of his act. Still, he made it work, convincing the crowd that he and they were all much closer now because they'd experienced the fall together.

That was the thing that stood out from that moment — the communal spirit that comes at events like these.

Sure, Suburbia's all-over-the-map lineup left a bit to be desired, and its decent, but hardly overwhelming attendance was maybe less than some anticipated.

But for those who came, and in the face of the detractors, the whole thing still felt pretty right.
