    The Rage fans on Sunday--the vibe was so un-Coachella like except for the first year they played--the only 2 nights in all the years that we left early! We met a guy who came all the way from Spain to see Rage and he was bummed about the crowd on Sunday too. Golden Voice--please preserve the friendly cool atmosphere and no more Rage type crowds please!(ps--one of our group is A Rage fan and she left early too!)

    I did not like the Cribs but endured them to get a good spot for the Fratellis and Hot Chip.

    Other than that I was extremely pleased by the sets I saw. Other than being disappointed that I couldn't hear the Decemberists over Kings of Leon, and that Air had such a short set.

    Why is everyone hating on Peaches? She was fantastic!

    Peaches reminded me of a middle school pep rally.. yawn..left after 10 minutes. I thought JAMC kinda mailed in their performance and the lead singer had no stage presence what-so-ever.. Manu Chao gave me a head ache..

    Guess no one else say Happy Mondays. It was a car crash. Shaun has forgotten almost all the lyrics to his songs. Using two teleprompters didn't seem to help. It was a car crash from start to finish.

    Can't see any promoter signing the Mondays up until he gets his shit together.

    Peaches wasn't bad at all, except the sound of course - but I only blame the technicians for that.
    Tilly & The Wall were awful. I used to be a fan, but not anymore.
    Lilly Allen was just as bad.
    LCD Soundsystem, I don't know why everyone loves them, but they blow live.

    Luckily I didn't catch any bad performances. Never really had to walk out on anyone.

    I unfortunately caught the end of Girl Talk as I came in for Mike Relm, but I'm sure there were people in that tent enjoying the performance.

    Am I the only person on here who doesn't have a "worst"? I purposely only saw bands I liked, therefore wasn't disappointed in anyone I saw.

    My worst:

    Of Montreal...sounded off, bad mixing..
    Rage.. was boring
    Arctic Monkeys..seemed disinterested to me.
    Air...aformentioned tech problems, 25 minute set..

    Not bad considering I caught 50 different acts!!!
    rage? boring? was?
    well, sir, you must have mistaken some other act for rage, because the show I saw was fucking exhilarating.

    yea mondays were an interesting disaster. so unorganized and strange. I danced around for a few songs and then left. 24 hour party people is one of my favorite movies ever so i was interested in seeing what they would do. Thank god they had that girl singer who at least attempted to get the crowd going. Saun Ryder is an interesting cat for sure. God damn he looked bored.

    I walked by Placebo and they sounded like shite. i was going to see them for a bit, but kept on walking to the tents. God damn that voice is AWFUL. and i have one of their albums and sorta dig em

    Friday afternoon the heat got to me so i stayed in the shade drinking water and listening to Tilly and the wall. Many people here seemed to hear sound problems, but i think they sounded pretty good. I was enjoying their set from a distance.

    Air was a fucking joke. Really lame euro pop. Cant believe I missed manu chao for them.

    Good the bad and the queen seemed like a real boring downer

    cornelius was interesting to say the least, but sorta annoying. he played to an empty gobi tent. it was cool to watch for a bit, but i quickly moved on. Hot japanese girls in the audience though.
    Then I will hold you down and spit her percolations all over you until you're as greasy as the day she regrets pushing your big fat ass out her big fat cunt.

    What I don't understand is what people exactly expected from Happy Mondays. Of COURSE they were going to be a carcrash, if you knew ANYTHING about them at all, you'd know this. Some jackass in the crowd yelled out, "Come On, I want Happy Mondays! Get it together!" I turned around and said "WTF did you expect" and a guy behind me said "exactly. Happy Mondays and Together are a contradiction in terms."
    In any event, I enjoyed their set. It was great to be in a crowd with mostly like-minded people and although it took Shaun 4 or 5 songs before he seemed to realize where he was and what he was supposed to be doing, he did better than I thought he'd do.

    Peaches are shit. You're an idiot if you were even there to see them. They haven't done anything significant for 20+ years.

    how old are you ? I mean that rory erikson and the explosions we're OLD and they played before the nightwatchman, so, I had to sit there and listen to them in agony from the first row. GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH

    seriously all songs about margaritas should be barred from being played.

    The ice from the snow cone vendor near the outdoor stage was not as fine as the ice form the snow cone vendor in the main food court. Pieces of ice kept falling out of my cup!
    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.

    Friday:
    Tokyo Police Club:
    I missed the rest of comedians for that? I used to be a fan.
    Brazilian Girls:
    Sooo boring, and they started late. I was more impressed with Interpol, and I don't even like Interpol. But I still want to see Brazilian Girls.
    Bjork:
    Awesome set so I can't say much, but I would have liked to see a differant approach besides the horns and choir.

    On the positive side Rufus Wainwright was amazing.


    Saturday:
    RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS:
    This band was borderline amusing 6 years ago...
    Im glad I only caught the amount I did between Blonde Redhead and The Black Keys.
    TGTBATQ:
    It was kinda cool to catch a bit of their set but I can't say much.

    Besides that, The Black Keys made this trip worth every penny.

    Sunday:
    The Kaiser Cheifs:
    This band is god awful.
    Rage Against the Machine
    Initially Tom Morello used the reunion as a "blow" to the Bush administration...why was the only political banter (or any banter at that) in between one of their songs? Someone please explain cause I might go crazy...

    The highlights had to be Explosions and Rodrigo Y Gabriela, fuck can they shred. I want to hear their thrash metal band they used to be in that they were talking about. Air and The Roots are worth a good mention too.
