I'm not kidding, they really are the best burgers in the country. Stunning. They've won all kinds of awards, commendations, and so forth.

Someone please tell me that Blitzen Trapper sucks live. I'm sitting in the Mumford & Sons pit and missing them.

In other news, I was in the very center of a Cut Copy mosh pit and got to hang with the Greenman. Life = made.

Top 5 from the weekend:

1. Arcade Fire
2. Cut Copy
3. The National
4. The New Pornographers
5. The Dodos

It was a great, exhausting weekend. Friday was pretty lame, but Saturday and Sunday were equally terrific.

Yeaaeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhh.

Best Lolla Ever.

The Strokes were the winners of the weekend. They fucking owned on Friday. Just no bullshit, straight forward, we are going to play all of the songs that you like and play them good and play them fast. Great, great crowd. And I accomplished my mission! By a stroke (hahahahahaah) of fate, they ended their set a little bit early and I was able to book it over and catch fucking BAD ROMANCE. Which is really the only thing I wanted to see Gaga play. So that was incredible. Friday was just an unbelievable, awesome, perfect day. One of those days where everything comes together. I can't even... Oh yeah. Black Keys and Jimmy Cliff were great, too. Like really great.

Saturday we got a little bit too messy, so yesterday didn't get started 'til late. But THE NASH! and the Fire both put on unforgettable performances. I guess i'll go talk about those in their appropriate threads.

My top five was probably...

The National
Arcade Fire
Stars
Cut Copy
Mumford and Sons

Good God, was Mumford awesome live. Sunday was so packed with all of my favorite artists,but the whole weekend was a great experience for me. Not sure I'll ever do all three days again, but I'm glad I got the chance to do it at least once.

Thanks to Phoenix not having nearly enough material to fill the headliners spot (well, you know what I mean), I got to catch almost all of Green Day's encore, so that made my night, since American Idiot and Good Riddance are probably the only songs by them, save a few select others, I'd have liked to have heard.

Their reluctance to play very much Alphabetical material could hardly be construed as a death of material.

What I was getting at is that they only seemed willing to play Phoenix tracks. Played a few others, but, not much. I'm amused that they play a like, ten minute version of "1901", since it's just that popular right now.

I wonder if Flock of Seagulls sets are 90 minute versions of I Ran.

I still need to find out if the Verve Pipe just played the Freshman 5 times at their Kidzaplaooza sets.

That would be a shame, because it's a very underrated album. I guess they figure they have to do more of the rock stuff for the kids.

But four albums is certainly enough to play a set of whatever length they would be given.
