Didnt realize at the time but that was probably one of the worse conflicts of the weekend. Saw the first 30 minutes of RyG, then it started raining so we went to leave but then people started slip and sliding down the hill (sometimes smashing into other people as they underestimated the force of gravity) and that was entertaining for 5 minutes, then went to get food and saw best coast, which was a lot of fun. They ran a bit long and we got back to the mainstage floor just in time for the decemberists, who were also fantastic, totally blew me away.
Still sad I missed !!!. I wanted to see them, but the way that afternoon worked out I didnt even really have a second so get over to bigfoot to check out a few songs.
OHhhh, and since I'm in the haters thread: What the fuck was up with all the late sets? I missed half of Das Racist because they were around 25 minutes late (WTF do they have to set up anyway? Its 3 rappers and a DJ). Then went to the Lips much to the annoyance of my Das Racist loving friend and they were 15 minutes late meaning we could have seen all of Das Racist (so I had to listen to "man we could still be at Das Racist right now" for 15 minutes). Roybn was a good 25 minutes late causing me to miss the last bit of her set for Sleigh Bells (I think). Aloe Blacc was about 10 minutes late and there were countless others that werent on time.
It could have just been me, but I dont remember nearly as many acts being nearly as late in the last 2 years.
