    Default Top 5 MUST SEE acts for each day?

    Friday
    1. Them Crooked Vultures
    2. The Specials
    3. Grizzly Bear
    4. Fever Ray
    5. Yeasayer

    Saturday
    1. Hot Chip
    2. Muse
    3. The xx
    4. The Death Weather
    5. Frightened Rabbit/Dirty Projectors


    Sunday
    1. Gorillaz
    2. Thom Yorke
    3. Phoenix
    4. Julian Casablancas
    5. Florence and The Machine
    6. Orbital (I'm not too familiar with their material unfortunately but from the looks of it around here, they're a must so I'll put them here atm)


    What are your top 5's?

    I saw them at Street Scene in 08. They were good. But then I saw them at APW 09 and they sounded awful, it's like he forgot how to sing the songs. And the new songs did not sound good sadly.

    I'm a fan of their album and the EP I have from them. And I have never seen them live. I've heard mixed reviews but I feel since I am a fan of their music it's best I go listen for myself. And I couldn't be more excited since I missed them @ Treasure Island.

    Ah fair enough. I enjoyed their set at Street Scene but the APW set was DISAPPOINTING. But I'm sure they'll pull through because crowds like Coachella will always be good with MGMT. But don't say you've been warned.
