Total bullshit. Complete & total bleed through into the Mojave.

Heh. Those guys can't win. Glenn was talking about how The Raconteurs drowned them out last time.

You couldn't really hear it while they were playing anyway. Or at least I couldn't, about halfway out from the stage on the non-Sahara side. Maybe if you were way over on the outskirts by the Sahara side. You could hear it in between songs (Glenn said "What the hell is that noise? Whatever song we play next better be in THAT key, I guess"), but the sound in the Mojave was loud enough to drown it out when they were playing. The short answer for why they were there was probably because the Mojave is bigger than the Gobi and Swell Season gets a pretty good crowd.

Great set by them as always, too. I loved when they stopped in the middle of a song for 5 seconds to fix something on the drum and then BAM right back into the song exactly where they left off with no hesitation. Good crowd for them.
