    Best Reason to Wake Up Early: B.o.B

    There were more dragonflies than fans on the damp expanse of Grant Park — and more people holding coffee cups than beers cozies — when the man born Bobby Ray Simmons took the stage at 11:30. What was with giving a guy who's moving so many units a slot in the Breakfast Club? Who knows, but before Squirt Boy's water bottles were even out of his holsterer, B.o.B. had the crowd overheated. His sweet genre-mashing went down like a pastry. Heads bobbed and arms waved to "Haterz Everywhere," "Past My Shades," and "Magic." Playboy Tre guested on "Bet I." and the frontman busted out an acoustic guitar for the emo power ballad "Letters from Vietnam." He played his own song "The Kids," and finished with a cover of MGMT's "Kids." But no kids were happier than the two who ended up with Bobby Ray's sneakers — in a moment of exuberance, he flung them into the crowd. — KEVIN BRONSON
