1. Vintage Trouble - simply put, probably the best before 3 set I've seen in 6 years I've attended...there's been other knockout retro soul sets in recent years, especially Black Joe Lewis in 2011 and Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings in 2008...but I think this might have been even better. Felt like watching James Brown backed by Led Zeppelin.
2. Reignwolf - Virtuoso one man 70s flavored Metal Act out of Canada, fine singer, better guitarist. Very lively 1/2 hour set.
3. Beardyman - The ultimate festival novelty act. Some of his humor was cheap and easy, but a hugely entertaining set nonetheless. Should play every year.
4. Ghost B.C. - Band members with no names in Death Robes and a Skull Faced lead singer speaking between songs to the crowd in Latin, best laugh I had all festival. Doubt that's the reaction the band was looking for, but enjoyed this old school Euro-metal act nonetheless.
5. Savages - righteous Female Fury.
6. Tokyo Ska Paradise Orchestra - Fun, but a little of this went a long ways
7. The Colourists - Playing on no sleep, this young band delivered the most charming indie pop set of the weekend.
8. Little Green Cars - Early day Indie-pop runners up.
9. Wild Nothing - Dream Pop's always a snooze live, but this band was far less snoozy than your average Radio Dept/Real Estate Fare and sounded quite good.
10. Kids These Days - interesting Chicago act trying to ply the multi-racial multi gender all-inclusive upbeat early Sly And The Family Stone vibe to rap.
