Post your questions here that you have about sets you weren't able to catch, that hopefully someone helpful who did catch the set can answer.

I have a few -

Did Beck come out and play with Charlotte Gainsbourg?

What happened with Gary Numan? There were rumors that Trent Reznor might join him onstage, and then I thought I heard something about how he might cancel. Anyone?

How was Steve Porter? I was too busy being stuck in four hours worth of lines to catch his set. Did he do Press Hop?

And Chris, Numan canceled because of the volcano.

I was only there for the first half of Charlotte Gainsbourg then came back for the last song and didn't see Beck.

Who was that guy who came out and played acoustic guitar for Superfast Jelly fish and sang the chorus instead of Damon?

Yann Tiersen was moved in Gary Numans spot.

When James Murphy, Pat Mahoney, and Nancy Whang were on stage with Gossip, who were the other two singers? The guy in the yellow outfit?

That was Gruff rhys of Super Furry Animals who sings it on the original track. I hate that the camera never went on him, such bullshit.

Did Céu finish their set before Jay-Z even started?

Watchable, but far from being good. I think he did Press Hop, but I was in the Rose Garden overhearing most of their set. I know there was an 8 minute Slap Chop remix that looped a line about "grating cheese" or something for the first good third of it.

Talked about his movies and told jokes, it was pretty funny actually.

Wow, that totally is, I thought it was yet another canned track.

How were the Band of Skulls?

I'm going to contextualize this so I don't get eaten alive. I missed Fever Ray, but have seen them, so I'm not a complete heretic.

That being said, did they do the Nick Cave cover?

Band of Skulls were good!
Strong solid tight rock show.
I only owned a few tracks...but I'm gonna be ownin' more...

Hey, was Faith No More the only band Danny Devito danced across stage for?
I was wondering if that would be a running gag.

Pretty sure it was Gruff Rhys. He sings the chorus with Damon on the track on album and contributed a bit instrumentally.

I walked past their set 2 or 3 times, and they had a massive crowd, spilled outside of the Mojave. Not really an answer to your question, but just for the record, a pretty surprisingly large amount of people came over to see them despite the schedule conflicts.

I'm almost positive her name is Nicole. She was melting me as well.

Also, considering I could only hear thom yorke and not see hem directly, between him and Flea, who had the better dance moves?

What I heard destroyed me, by the way.

Really great. One of my favorite sets of the weekend. Russell mumbled into the mike a lot and said that he wanted to keep the atmosphere "British" or something to that effect.

Really when I walked past them on my way to Plastikman it din't seem really full to me. (at least compared to how packed it was during other sets)

Yes, Fever Ray performed both of the covers they performed on their tour as well as a cover of Peter Gabriel's Mercy Street.

flea was mostly just fucking his bass the whole time, which was delightful. thom has the most endearing moves of any performer ive ever seen. the highlight was when they were across stage air humping towards each other. brilliant.

And besides, doesn't Flea have a broken foot or something?
