    I know. We left early.

    We went and had dinner with my brother who had done the Bulldog run earlier that day.

    I'm so thrilled that I got to see Menomena


    did anyone else think the sound was absolutely terrible for Broken Social Scene & Cold War Kids?

    Yes. I thought the sound was terrible. Not too mention all the jackasses that obviously weren't there to listen the music, but rather drown it out with their fucking annoying conversations.

    if people had been talking during Menomena in SD, I would have hurt some motherfuckers. Good thing everyone seemed to be there for BSS, AND Menomena. I actually talked to some people who only went for Menomena.That shit was so damn beautiful, has menomena ever played Coachella? to lazy to look.

    What about the Germs?

    Do you have something against them?

    i thought that is was ridiclous that none of the tech people at the festival came out to help BSS when all the sound was screwed up. There was one point where kevin drew sat there for five minutes pleading for someone to come on stage and fix the sound. He ended up unplugging broken amps and throwing the faulty mics off stage. i love that guy.

    aside from that, BSS and menomena were amazing. menomena really surprised me with how good they were live and BSS was just epic. When kevin told everyone to just scream at the end of 'ibi dreams of pavement,...ahh i lost it

    as for cold war kids... eh? they put on a pretty good show but most of their songs were new and i felt their performance was kinda a downer after the high from menomena and BSS.

    /\ it is pretty pathetic to have one of the main bands pleading from the stage for technical help and joking with the audience about how no one works there and won't help them

    The sound was bad unless you were close enough...if you were too far back, higher frequencies didn't travel as well and it was too much low end...especially for a band like Cold War Kids.

    Menomena was pretty damn good. !!! was pretty awful. The Germs were at the wrong festival. And were bad, regardless.

    Saw that bag lady re: the picture at the top of this page. How did she not die from heat stroke? Jesus.

    Menomena are great live. They should be opening for Radiohead not that stinking pile of garbage called Liars.

    Totally forgot about this event.
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    I don't know, I was in pretty much the same spot, which was pretty close, for Menomena & Cold War Kids...and Menomena sounded a lot better to my ears

    Last year it was $20, but they let me just walk right in for free. It's a really laid back atmosphere.

    How did you just walk in for free? You mean you did not have to sneak in?

    from the laist.com article:

    "... the problems that came out of last year, such as local employees being forced to pay festival admission to get to work and not allowing postal workers to deliver the mail."

    This is totally lame. Can't believe this is even a problem after all this time. Let the mailman in. Give tickets to the places of business to give to their employees to get in for the day. Problem solved.
