I hope you appreciate the fact that I covered the two I hated most with my arrow.

I was bouncing that entire show. Way more motion than anyone else around me, especially when they came out and played my favorite song, Velvet, first. I flipped my shit.

Also, I assume you hated them because they were Gambino assholes? Did you by chance hear the fuck who started chanting 'Donald Glover' in between songs? I was just like... buddy... shut the fuck up.

Random pics from Lolla:

Am I crazy or does it look like this backpack has a snooty face?

I loved that first track. I don't know their first album as well, but every song was great.

I mentioned in my long-ass review, but pretty much he wouldn't shut up about how much he pitied The Big Pink because they had no fans on the rail and she TALKED during "Velvet".

Well fuck her. Aside from The Temper Trap, The Big Pink was my 2nd favorite act in the lineup going into the weekend. Like I said, I poured out all of the energy that went to waste for The Temper Trap into that act. Every word of all of the songs (but one, I just didn't seem to recognize?). That's crap. No fans... no you're just an ignorant fuck who doesn't know enough about music.

I don't think you missed a huge deal. I've seen them live and they were very good, but a long way down on my list of great bands I've seen. Don't like their new album either.

Yeah they were really bugging me, it was funny, I went to see The Big Pink almost on a whim. Can't believe how amazing they were.

Those tumblers I mentioned seeing, they were great (These are video links, you have to click them):













If you don't want to watch all six of those, at least watch the last one.

I think the new album misses some depth but is strong on top. They're coming to Orlando though in October, so I'll get my chance again. Conditions was phenomenal though. Either way, saying I haven't missed much and actually seeing it for myself are two completely different things.

Something I've learned a lot about recently (in life in general)... I'd rather be disappointed knowing I've seen or tried something than to just not know at all. What are those words... if you never try you'll never know.

Holy shit, that's a goddamn cake.

Nice photos, guys, and good writeups. Sounds like it was a good time outside of the storm and some crappy crowds. Keep on rockin'.

The cake was so fucking funny. The girl was chatting with the crowd and she's like, "Oh what a scary mask you have on." to some guy in the back and then suddenly she got this look on her face and she goes, "WHAT IS THAT?! Is it a cake?!" And, obviously we couldn't see what she was seeing, so I kind of was thinking she was acting a little silly about some kind of sign or balloon...then they pushed the thing to the front rail and when I saw it I about died laughing.
