29 Sep 2008, 14:39 by sunburntkamelI say obligatory, because I've been re-reading my old festival review posts (Intonation ('05), Lollapalooza ('05), Pitchfork ('07)) to figure out if it's always been this much work to get our "money's worth" out of a festival. My conclusion is that ACL was, in fact, a mistake. Next year we'll be doing afterparties only.
Mates of State where dependably enjoyable. It's funny to see a band like them on a festival stage. They fit better in bowling alleys and tiny pubs. On a big stage, they look lonely, too far apart from each other. It's also odd to see them with other people (strings section) on stage.
We left after about 2/3 of the set, to go see Jenny Lewis at the WaMu JP Morgan/Chase stage. Unfortunately, the stage had an awkward roof and bleachers, so that if you weren't queued up early, you couldn't see or hear her. That was a lot of my issue with the fest, that for every set you had to try to beat the crowd there…

11 May 2008, 06:58 by hellopennyWell, I've been lurking around last.fm since it was just audioscrobbler, and for some reason never looked at the "journal" portion. Hmm. I started up a new account in September, 2006 because I temporarily lost the password to my old account- whyshouldifly, and listing Rilo Kiley as your top artist citing one thousand listens and change does not really reflect who I am anymore.
Now that that's out of the way, let's get down to status quo and such. Next weekend I'll be found at the Wildflower Festival in Richardson. My dad's steel band will be playing, so everyone should check out the Richland Steel Band. Other than that, the Pink Floyd Laser show is worth the admission itself. I was just informed that Bret Michaels will be there, which means I'll have to wade through the sea of "cougars" just to get a turkey leg and tie dye paraphernalia. I'm absolutely stoked about Blue Oyster Cult, America, and Everclear. I've got a fever for more cowbell already. …
