    If Arcade Fire is not #1 on your list the years they played, then you are wrong. Most likely souless too. Like Hitler.

    Dude, how was Stephen Marley that bad? He played like 5 Bob Marley songs live, and that's really all you can ask of him...

    I arrived at the outdoor theater when Stephen Marley was scheduled to be finished, but he kept going...for at least 20 minutes! Despite being freaked out/pissed over the possibility of getting a shorter Jarvis set, I enjoyed it. Did he just start late or did he just play a really long set?

    Actually, I should have ranked him over Peaches or Hot Chip. I liked his set more than the Lolla and ACL ones.

    Silversun Pickups-saw like there last 4 songs to get a decent spot for monkeys. but have seen them live two other times and their just as terrible every time.
    Peaches saw first half set but didnt see second set due to no longer being able to hold it.
    LCD Soundsystem Blonde Redhead and Red Hot Chilli Peppers i pretty mcuh jumped around with those three. but everyone else was full sets.

    Jarvis Cocker seems to be way up there for a lot of people, which is hard for me to understand. I've only been to '07 but it goes something like

    2007
    Arcade Fire
    RATM
    Regina Spektor
    Explosions in the Sky
    Manu Chao

    and I'm a fucking idiot for missing Justice
