Bands don't usually play full two hour sets at festivals from my experience, even if they're the headliners.

Pearl Jam didn't play much longer than 90 minutes a couple years ago, from what I remember.

The headliners all get 90 minutes, 8:30pm-10:00pm.

Will NSW be there today?

Nope.

Nope, DM got two hours. 8:00-10:00. They played from 8:10 to 9:46. Unacceptable. Totally unacceptable. All the bands maxed out on time, last year. I know. I was there. Radiohead played from 8:00:13 to 10:00:07.

I was there last year, too, and I guess I WAS WRONG GASP!!!

And, to be honest, today, I don't give a fuck, I just sort of want to stop puking.

Just like the song, I guess. Which they did play and which was pretty awesome. You better get better, for tomorrow. That's too much money down the drain, if you miss out on the last day, too!

Right now, there's no way in fuck I make it tomorrow. At least I get to watch Yanks/Sox, it's my silver lining.

They are now streaming the Animal Collective set. Wow. Daringly awful, after 40 minutes. A friend, via text: "I was just thinking that maybe they're pissed at someone or trying to get off their label or something." Yowza.

To add positivity, though--Crystal Castles annihilated. Brilliant set. Also, Gaslight Anthem was earnestly fun and solid. Notably loud and fun. And when DM was actually playing, rather than bailing, stalling, or taking encore breaks, they were hella-good.

Ugh, yeah, I'm watching it now. They're playing "Brothersport," which is one of my favorites off of MPP, and Avey Tare is just yelping into a mic while Panda Bear moans into his. It's pretty horrific. Disappointing, to say the least.

Even if they were playing an amazing set, I'm too bitter to watch.

Well, they're not, so don't worry.

Seriously though, I'm sorry to hear that you're not going to make it out to the festival.

Gracias. I'm trying to limit my whining.

I must admit, oneblood...I think that "Brother Sport" sounds pretty magical. Really, though, that's because all that's ever kept me trying, with this band, is the promise of more Avey Tare shrieking. You think I'm kidding, but I'm not. That's all "Peacebone" is to me--a series of glorious, perfectly orchestrated squeals. Amazing shit. Still, though...those poor people. The heat index is around 99, and the humidity in the post-90% range. It must be murder.

Meh, if it were me, I'd be whining a whole lot more than you are, so have at it.

According to Spin Magazine's Twitter, their favorite set of the day so far was Atmosphere. Holla, MN/Minneapolis pride!

The weather is indeed a mess today. The combo of the weather and me having zero energy left will probably mean that I miss tomorrow, too. Maybe I can watch someone get mugged from my balcony. Shouter, bunch of muggings in LP lately, including one right in front of my building on Thursday night.
