Some adversity will happen and something unexpected will happen and you'll get tired and you'll get hungry, you'll have trouble going to the bathroom, and you'll lose your car keys, and all these wonderful things will add up to some powerful experience that 10 years from now we'll say "We lived, we lived." - Wayne Coyne on Coachella

    I saw Crystal Castles in Austin and all it sounded like was a dying cat screaming over and over again in this terrible high pitched yelp.

    Agreed, really really bad show.

    The fuck? That was a good set.

    My worst was Scars on Broadway, not that I stayed for the whole thing. Probably the worst that I stayed the whole time for was Vampire Weekend. I was in front and wanted to stay up front for Metric (I think?).

    Their album sounded that bad? So, what you're saying is that not only are they the worst live band in history, but they are the worst recorded band in history as well?
