    Oh Jaar...
    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.

    Highlights of today: The Field, Gold Panda, Dinosaur Jr. and Nicholas Jaar.

    Both days were epic in their own individual way. Well played Sean.

    I dont know man, I'm not tired at this point yet or normally jaded like that so maybe it was just following a good number of tough acts to follow, but I do see your point... or they just suck. Post trippy Yeasayer pictures if you've got them!

    Ooo, other weird thing today. King Khan was super tame. Walked away after 2 songs. What happened to the money burning, get naked, and get rowdy band I've seen before?

    It was rampant during Gold Panda as well. Thought it was pretty fun. The pit during Win-San Western was pretty cute too.

    Was able to record Wild Nothing, Ceremony, Cursive, the Field, Dino Jr, Desparcidos, and Beirut today (to go along with Soft Pack, Redd Kross, the Vaselines, Future Islands, Warpaint, Tanlines, Tycho, Quicksand, and Simian Mobile Disco from yesterday). Look for them soon.

    Sounds like the fest had something great for everyone. Pretty jealous, that lineup was so stacked. Anyone see DJ Harvey yesterday? Wondering how his short set translated.

    Top 3 for Saturday:
    1. James Blake - Fucking incredible. Everything I wanted and more. Still processing it. Shout out to Cutter for running into me at this set and letting me use his phone as mine was dead. So happy he played "I Never Learnt to Share".
    2. Chromatics - They might have had the best sound of the festival and definitely some of the best vibes. Sun going down... so good. Really surprised me. I love their shit but didn't know how it would translate live. They're the real deal.
    3. Tycho - Wow. The visuals, the response from the crowd, fucking everything.

    Top 3 for Sunday
    1. Nicolas Jaar - Maybe my number one of the festival. Seriously unbelievable set... Couldn't stop dancing the entire time, and I had a great spot to see those dudes going to work. The way the Space is Only Noise tracks were constructed and reworked live absolutely blew my mind. I originally wasn't sure I wanted to stay for the whole set (wanted to catch some Yeasayer and Twin Shadow) but once he started I was completely mesmerized. The 10 minute DJ set of remixes at the end was the cherry on top. Fucking insane.
    2. Gold Panda - Really surprising! Saw him once before in NY opening for Four Tet but this set was an entire different beast. He was going HARD up there, having a blast, and the crowd was giving it right back to him. Great way to end the festival, especially that last song. Wow. Danced so much.
    3. Tiger and Woods - These dudes are so groovy. Enough said.

    Soooo my choices are pretty plurlyfe, but what can I say. Also, FIDLAR, The Men, Nite Jewell, Suicide of Western Culture all killed it. The Field too. BOOM. Great weekend

    Naw, his opinion is shaded by the fact that the real headliner played from 6:40-7:30. I pity any band that ever has to play after Dinosaur Jr. The only one I've seen pull it off is My Bloody Valentine.

    Great weekend all around. And yes, the crowds were great. I went by myself and met some of the friendliest and fun people. The only annoying person I came across all weekend was an OSL Snob, who two songs into Tanlines, she claimed they were so much better at OSL. Anyone else see the gophers popping their cute little heads out their holes?

    I like the top 3 per day, so I'm going that route as well:

    Saturday
    1. James Blake - Holy fuck does that guy perform well live. I hadn't seen him before, and the way he stretches and changes his songs up is something to behold. CMYK was my highlight, but the whole show was astounding. He was definitely my performance of the weekend.
    2. Refused - They are performing at a level right now where it'd be a shame if they didn't record something new. They are so damn on point it's crazy. And the Stooges bit was fuckin' awesome.
    3. Chromatics - They were all kinds of beautiful, and they closed with both covers! Perfect time for them, perfect set, the only thing that made them somewhat lesser in my mind was the two sets above. Fantastic band.

    Sunday
    1. Dinosaur Jr. - Go ahead. Try to put on a better show than them. As every band after showed, it can't be done.
    2. David Cross - He was just so damn hilarious. MUCH better than his ATP set a few years ago where he was drunk, angry and hard to follow. He was just a ball of Cross.
    3. Daughn Gibson - I love his album and the set matched up very well. Great early surprise.

    For what it's worth I had the same reaction as Cutter when I saw Beirut on the rail at the Greek last October. It was a lazy performance, Zach forgot most of the lyrics, and the lack of strings really hurt. I saw about 20 mins of them at Coachella and had very low expectations so I liked it much more. Disappointing, since Beirut are one of my favorite bands, and old live videos on youtube are pretty amazing.

    I actually waded into the pit for about 2 seconds at American Nightmare. Damn that was nuts! Not very familiar with them at all but what energy! Their set ended my night but I was good at that point.

    Other highlights-

    Dinosaur Jr.- Watched this from the beer tent with Drinkey and girlfriend. It may be the best set I saw the entire weekend. They just nailed it. And I no longer think of J Mascis as merely a good guitar player- he is GREAT! I've seen many "legendary" guitar players and I felt like his tone and skill were as good as anyone's. And I love any power trio where the bass player uses a Ricky 4001 to shore up the bottom.

    Nicolas Jaar- had to choose between Converge and this but no regrets. I loved this set and it was a good change from a lot of the driving rock I saw over the weekend.

    Joyce Manor- good So CA punk. Some decent songs in there and a fun way to get Sunday started

    Against Me!- Solid set. Good enough I stayed through it all. Not my favorite music but good flow to the performance

    David Cross- The bit about the colonic was hilarious (I love a good riff on poop). I also loved the bit about modern politicians trying to attribute their policies to the forefathers. The whole thing was damn awesome! I felt like right after his set that I had already gotten my money's worth for the Sunday ticket

    American Nightmare- already commented. Was like a bomb going off.

    Also caught some of Desaparecidos (liked them a lot), Cursive and Atlas Sound, along with a few other comedians before David Cross. Awesome event! Dust aside, it's one of the best festivals I've attended. Looking forward to next year.

    Agreed on Dinosaur. J really is one of the all-time great guitarists. He can rip out an incredible guitar solo like most people let loose a belch. It just seems so natural for him.

    Yea, I had only moderate expectations for them, but he was really a revelation for me on guitar. I didn't know he was that fantastic.

    I looked for ya btw, bmack, but no luck. But it was good seeing all the boardies I did find. A couple of us managed to start Sunday at Wurstkuche like we planned. A few Schneider's in me set the table for a very buzzed afternoon!

    Also, I heard the warm whiskey bags made an appearance! Sadly, I did not get any...

    For what it's worth, the tambourine player went all Buffalo Bill from Silence of the Lambs and danced around with his penis tucked in during I Want To Be A Girl.

    I have to say Black Dice was fucking sick. Sadly they got a bad set time for my schedule (had to go see Beirut), but the 10 mins I did hear I absolutely loved and wish I had seen more (and recorded them). Bring them to Coachella next year.
