Yeah I agree. I just hear they have absolutely amazing live shows which makes me very interested. And I was obsessed with them when their first album came out, I kinda over played it but they still have been on my "must see live" list.

My first year I puked before making it into the gate and only remember half of the Mumford and Sons set, which was on bigfoot ha. And the half of what I remember was plenty because all of their songs still sound exactly like the ones I saw.
But that being said I learned my lesson about drinking too hard too early.
I have never seen them but I can’t miss Zach Hill.
I feel this same way but Toro has been on my must see list for over 4 years and have never had the chance. I think I'll check him out and if he is not very good live I'll go and get my mind blown by DEATH GRIPS.
The hardest one for me right now is Reignwolf vs. Red Fang. I was stoked when I saw Red Fang was going to be there. I had never heard Reignwolf, but after watching some of his performances on YouTube, I was really looking forward to his set too.
Killer Mike doing a half hour set right in the middle of Elvis Costello just pisses me off. Those are 2 of the acts I was most looking forward to.
Also, the Alt-J/Lumineers conflict has the potential to end my relationship. I want to see Alt-J, but my girlfriend really wants to see the Lumineers.
End the relationship Alt-J is going to be incredible...judging from their SXSW performance anyway.
For Friday I would check out Youth Lagoon, he has a very intense and almost personal show. If his sound is good on the yeti stage he should be perfect for twilight hour.
The only other recommendations I have is to go to DEATH GRIPS. I haven't seen them live but I hear it is an incredible and violent show...if you are into that sort of thing.
That was definitely the direction I was leaning. I keep hearing wonderful things about YL live. The only reason I even have a conflict with Death Grips / Menomena is that I saw Menomena here in Anchorage like 2 years ago at a show with The Antlers and they blew me away.
If you haven't seen DEATH GRIPS I would totally check them out. I haven't personally seen them live but their live videos and just them in general are fucking nuts.
Also the biggest conflict for me is DEATH GRIPS vs. Toro Y Moi. Fucking heart breaker those two being at the same time.
