Because almost everyone saw Arcade Fire, Bjork, Rage, and other result-skewers, let's think about something else.

Would have voted for Klaxons or Hot Chip, but they don't seem to be options.

Happy Mondays would be my vote for worst band i saw.

Though the first half of their set was filled with technical problems, out of the choices here I would have to go with of Montreal for delivering a solid show anyway, and making me dance.

yeah that was the best opener of the weekend besides, Justices 'Genisis' opener.

MSTRKRFT was incredible, they should be on the list...and DJ SHADOW was mind altering. He came in late becaose of fucking Sonic Youth taking WAY too long, then he experinced some technical problems before he came on, but his set was arguably the best on of the three days.

Rodrigo y Gabriella are very, very, very close second.

But every act I saw, even Willy was a pleasure this year! Not one disappointment!

Um, Tiesto was on the main stage. It looks like you misread it twice.

My favorite part of Tiesto's set was being on the rail front-and-center at The Good, The Bad, and The Queen when Damon Albarn looked over at the main stage where Tiesto was playing and said, "My, that's a really loud ice cream van over there."

I laughed all the way through the next song.

i think i'm most pissed at myself for missing the klaxon's set.. i knew little of their music until after coachel...

total set time cluster fuck with R y G, the Roots, Soulwax, Junior Boys, on sunday.. assholes..

I can't believe Justice is beating out Faithless. I can understand Gogol Bordello because that performance seemed epic. Too bad I missed it. Missing it for Faithless & Bjork wasn't a bad trade off though.

MSTRKRFT & Hot Chip should definately be options as well.

michaelmontanez
11-29-2007, 12:14 PM
Ratatat would be my number one, even though Gogol Bordello was amazing, and so was Justice, and of course Klaxons. After Ratatat, I felt so happy for some reason. Gogol Bordello is better to see outside of a festival setting, when they came to Tucson, they had a two-hour set, it was crazy, and then Eugene was hitting on my friends whilst being drunk.

Hot Chip was really good. Damien Rice was my favorite for 2007 though.

12-07-2007, 12:54 PM
I voted Justice because they suprised me a lot. I still have good memories about their show.

Runner ups where Klaxons, !!!, LCD Soundsystem, Mstrkrft, Soulwax and Evil Nine.

missmunny
12-16-2007, 08:14 PM
Klaxons blew my shit AWAY, but the best non-mainstage show was Faithless. Good people, good vibe, rare band. They fucking ripped it and it was great to stroll over to Bjork after. I got bit by red ants in the tent that afternoon, apparently I'm allergic, so my legs were toe up, it sucked, but it was worth it. LCD was awesome too, as always, and the Teddybears were a very nice wind down on Sunday. I missed MSTRKRFT, Jarvis and CSS last year and I wish I hadn't.

1. Gogol Bordello - Seeing them just a couple of months ago just reinforces how great their live show is.

2. !!! - The world seemed like a better place by the end of their set.

3. Ratatat - great way to end the festival (nobody in my group really wanted to see Rage, and we were too exhausted to stick around for the Lemonheads).

as good as LCD Soundsystem was, i think the only reason Gogol Bordello doesn't have 80% of the vote is because they were up against Bjork, so not many people saw their set...

Gogol Bordello blew me away. I had heard there stuff before, but mostly went to get away from everyone and their twink cousin at the Bjork show. their performance was incredible. It was like Cirque Du Soleil on crack fronted by Borat. Such high energy in that small tent.
