    I missed Elliot Smith as well.... I hear he played at the top of a stair well or something.....

    oh yeah and it was pouring all day and was like 45 degrees in the middle of June.

    Yeah! Beastie Boys sucked, they hadn't played for like 4 years or something and didn't do many old songs. However, as much hell as we went through, remember how great Underworld was? They went out in the rain and danced like crazy. Blur was also great, Damon was throwing out free ponchos since they were charging 5 dollars for them! Also, and I didn't really notice this at the time because I was so miserable (and I was there for Radiohead), but Radiohead did an extraordinary set. I just recently stumbled on the DVD bootleg of this performance and it was WAY better than I rememebr it being. PM me if you want me to send you a copy, it's really great. Thom does one of the best Kid A's I remember, and Sit Down Stand Up and Talk Show Host...they were playing their lives out because they knew how mad we all were.

    thursday. I was right on the rail, just left of center. it would've been perfect if I wasn't nearly crushed.

    first and probably last time I make an effort to be on the rail for a concert. it was awesome though. I could see everything so well. when Damon came down to the barrier he was RIGHT there.

    for some reason the HD versions are really choppy on youtube. odd, not sure why. if there is interest I will provide download links to the videos.

    girls & boys, complete. camera audio picked up audience singalong more than the band itself.



    introduction to tender. during the beginning of the song I had people being pulled out of the crowd on both my left and my right, so it shakes so much it looks like I was in an earthquake. I aborted when security had to pull someone out of the crowd right over my head.

    I would love to see Blur too in 2010, but given recent statements by the band, we're gonna have to put this in the 'highly unlikely' category. Baaaaah.

    Hmmm.. I've been hearing a lot about Blur lately, but I don't think I've actually listened to them... I'll check it out. I need updates on new bands that are worth listening to!

    Guess they are new to him.

    I can't stress enough how essential Blur are... In fact, I am committing right now. If neither Blur or Orbital are at Coachella next year... I'm not going.

    Being back in action and not having played in the states yet, they're certainly a headliner possibility. I'd be down.

    in london after glastonbury there were some write-ups calling it the best glastonbury set ever. they exaggerate, of course, but that's still saying something.

    speaking of which I need to download the video footage of glastonbury. need to find some hard disk space...
