Man, that MIA set looked like it was really boring.
MIA herself looked really bored the whole time, but the crowd and her backup singer were super into it.
That's cool. A good crowd can go a long way.
By the way, Brody Dalle's drummer had a FIDLAR sticker on it. Was that the FIDLAR drummer? I have never seen what they look like so I wasn't sure. Either way he was kickass. Not Jon Theodore kickass but kickass nonetheless.

This is how my weekend went:
Friday: Iska Dhaaf -> Kithkin -> Lia...De La Soul --> lounged on the hill while Cage The Elephant/Naked And Famous played --> went down to the front for Foals --> Phantogram --> Mogwai --> Outkast --> Die Antwoord
Saturday: New Lungs --> Augustines --> Hobosexual --> The Dodos --> First Aid Kit --> Sol --> Deafheaven --> Sandrider
Sunday: Tacocat --> Brody Dalle --> chune-Yards --> Black Joe Lewis --> Elbow --> The Flavr Blue --> Haim --> Rodriguez --> Queens Of The Stone Age --> Major Lazer
My favorites sets were Sandrider, Queens Of The Stone Age, Deafheaven, Foals, Mogwai, Outkast, New Lungs and Tacocat. Eric Andre was right in the pit for Deafheaven. He was going nuts. Sandrider was fucking excellent and I got to meet BlackSmile so that was radical. I have bruises all up my torso from getting slammed into the front of the Narwhal stage. Outkast was so much fun. Hit after hit after hit. QOTSA sounded great but I echo the disappointment with how short it was. Jon Theodore sure can drum though...holy shit. I never saw him play with The Mars Volta live so that was pretty amazing.

I technically work until 4:30 today but I am mostly just making Sasquatch mix cds and looking at the schedule. Think I can skip out around 1:30. Then it is off to Eastern Washington. My entire body feels lighter at this time of year. All of the weird seasonal depressing shit is behind us until next winter. Let the good times roll. Speaking of letting the good times roll...this mix needs some Harry. Hope to see you guys out there. Adios mu'fuckas!

The Beatles - Abbey Road Brian Eno - Another Green World Roxy Music - Roxy Music QOTSA - Rated R This T-Shirt Is A Record: Seattle Noise Vol. 1 Sandrider - Godhead chune-Yards - Nikki Nack Akron/Family - II: The Cosmic Birth and Journey of Shinju TNT
Oooooh I forgot about this one, and now I have to wait until after Sasquatch to hear it...shitz.
Describe it to me in graphic detail?
The cover art is a drawing/painting of a ship on a tumultuous voyage through a moonlit sky. The first three tracks are from Helms Alee. The next three are from Young Widows.
The track list:
1. Punchy Stabby [1:47] 2. PAN [2:36] 3. Gas Giant [3:19] 4. Field of Zzzz [2:34] 5. The Wanderer [4:37] 6. The Waves Came In [3:22]
The tracks could have easily been included with Sleepwalking Sailors or Easy Pain. I like that they held them back though. The split is going to be with them on their tour together. That is one hell of a tour. I would be bummed that Helms Alee isn't on the Seattle bill but Constant Lovers are so it's cool. I can burn a copy of it for you and bring it to the festival if you would like.
