Achtung Baby and In Rainbows are two of the most overrated albums of all time.
Hey I agree.
Not a huge U2 fan so I can't speak about that too much. I do love In Rainbows but people talk about it like it's one of the best albums of its decade. I might have thought this five years ago but now that I have expanded my taste in music I realize how narrow-minded some Radiohead fanboys can be. I'm sure it's a similar kind of thing with U2.

I've had little time for internet lately but I figured I'd come on here to say that I had a great time at Pemberton and I saw lots of amazing stuff. I was pretty impressed with how smoothly most things went, given the reputation of the festival. Probably won't be able to make it to next year's festival but I'm happy I could go to this one.

I'm down with the longer sets as well. Don't like that the headliners have no competition though. Not a fan of Deadmau5 and I've seen Outkast so I would prefer to have another choice or two.
Friday is free of conflicts for me. Pretty bummed that Earl had to cancel but at least I've seen him before. Saturday has the Girl Talk vs. Flying Lotus conflict which sucks. Not sure what to see yet, Sunday has Justice vs. Modest Mouse vs. St. Vincent. I'll probably go with Justice because I just saw St. Vincent and I'll be seeing Modest Mouse back in Calgary.
My days go like this at the moment:
Friday: Blondie -- Tyler, the Creator -- Soundgarden (some) -- Kendrick Lamar -- Nine Inch Nails -- Schoolboy Q -- Best Coast Saturday: Dinosaur Jr. -- Metz -- TV on the Radio -- The Flaming Lips -- The New Pornographers -- Girl Talk/Flying Lotus -- Araabmuzik Sunday: Foxygen -- Fucked Up -- Frank Ocean -- Justice -- Outkast

Jacques Greene and Cashmere Cat outdoors tonight (if the rain stops) followed by the Fresh & Onlys at the Golden Age Club and Mission of Burma at the #1 Legion. Tomorrow I'll be for sure catching Blitzen Trapper, Neko Case, and Dan Deacon. Saturday is Touche Amore, Rocket from the Crypt, Spiritualized, and St. Vincent.
That's a good list of shows my friend. Pixies and Modest Mouse should be great at Mac Hall, I just can't fathom paying to see them again since neither have released anything worthwhile since I last saw them at that venue. On my horizon...
Mission of Burma (Sled Island) - Legion #1 Bob Mould with FURY THINGS (Sled Island) - The Republik Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds - Jubilee Auditorium Matthew Good - Calgary Stampede Shakey Graves - Palomino (Stampede Show) Gordon Downie w/ The Sadies - Calgary Stampede Arcade Fire - Shitty Saddledome X-Fest -Shitty Fort Calgary
Also, after talking to Pink Mountaintops after their set at Sasquatch, they are apparently playing Calgary in July or August, so that show will definitely be added to my list.
