Thread: Top 5 sets from 2013 (Weekend 2 edition)

  1. #1

    Default Top 5 sets from 2013 (Weekend 2 edition)

    My picks:

    Sigur Ros
    Modest Mouse
    The Postal Service
    Two Door Cinema Club
    The Shouting Matches

    Honorable Mentions: Beardyman and Janelle Monae. Due to The Shouting Matches and 2DCC, I only caught the last 20 minutes or so of each of their acts. Had I seen their whole sets, they both probably would have made top 5.

    1. Vintage Trouble
    2. The Stone Roses
    3. Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds
    4. Janelle Monae
    5. Thee Oh Sees

    HM - Blur, Foals, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Palma Violets, Divine Fits, Natives, Beardyman on Friday, The Colourist, Reignwolf (probably my #7 or 8 overall), El-P, Bat For Lashes, Spiritualize, Franz Ferdinand, New Order, Sigur Ros (best closing number of weekend) Sat (Best day overall), Slipping Into Darkness, Ghost B.C., Social Distortion Sunday.

    Overall, more great to near great performances than last year, but also more serious clunkers...went in excited to see Youth Lagoon, Japandroids, Cloud Nothings, came away very disappointed in all three sets (last two had great energy, both were just too fucking raw, both bands obviously rely tremendously on studio tricks to be palatable on record, Youth lagoon just sucked.)

    But worst of weekend was easily Modest Mouse...shocked anyone, even big fans (of which I am one) can put them top 5 - sound at this set was just dreadful...they've never been a terrific live act but this felt like the worst Mainstage show I have ever seen in six years of going other than maybe MIA in '09. But hey, I loved the Roses set cause I love the Roses...so probably some of that going on here.

    Surprised by reaction to Chili Peppers also, thought they were rather flat last night, but that might have just been my own exhaustion.
    The Replacements - Bryan Ferry - Outkast - The Knife - Dum Dum Girls - Jon Spencer Blues Explosion - Broken Bells - Haim - Neko Case - Jagwar Ma - Goat - Waxahatchee

    Queens Of The Stone Age - Pet Shop Boys - Chvrches - Mogwai - Warpaint - Washed Out - Future Islands - Ty Seagall - Darkside - Foxygen

    Beck - Neutral Milk Hotel - Superchunk - Arcade Fire - Bombino - Daughter - Surfer Blood

    In arbitrary order
    1. Thee Oh Sees- great band, good mosh pit
    2. Sigur Ros- vibed out on the grass listening to good music, great fun
    3. Wu-Tang Clan- crowd wasn't as bad as I expected it to be and seeing them live was unreal
    4. Action Bronson- "I'm the Albanian Santa Claus!"
    5. Stone Roses- one of the best crowds I've ever been in, the band sounded far better than last week
    other really great sets- Danny Brown, DaM Funk, James Blake, Japandroids, Blur, Four Tet, Pete Tong, Violent Femmes, Postal Service, Nick Cave

    Wait, the Chili Peppers didn't play Scar Tissue weekend 1? I thought it was one of their biggest hits. I'm the farthest thing from a RHCP fan and that is one of the 5 or 6 songs by them I know.
