    Honest question (and I don't disagree with your argument and I'm also a fan) - when was the last time a top-5 listing played exactly the same timeslot/stage placement? Interpol's set in 2011 was 7:25...

    My bad. Last time I was there was summer 2013, it had been no booze for the better part of 15 years of shows there...that's a great development though. DLJ is gonna need a beer or three.
