Everything I've heard from friends and what I've gathered online, their weekend 2 performance was 10 times better. I have 100% they will put on a great performance for Sasquatch.
I've heard the same, and just by looking at the differences between their setlists its obvious that it only required some tweaking to make significantly better. Weekend two has Crumblin' Erb, Southernplayalistic, Players Ball, and The Whole World. And its also structured better so that there's not 9 slow deep cuts and solo songs back to back.
I told myself I wasn't going to look at the setlists, but then I did. The second one does look 100x better and instantly relieved any concerns I might have had about how their Sasquatch set is going to go down.

I don't know how much of the Outkast criticism actually matters to Sasquatch. The biggest issues with the performance looked like they were a little rusty and had a lot of trouble connecting with 60,000 people. They should be a little more well oiled by the time Sasquatch comes around and the crowd will be like a third of that size.
Besides, they looked good on all of their deep cuts. It looked like casual fans were the one who struggled most because Andre didn't give a shit about Hey Ya.
I don't know man, I'm a pretty big Outkast fan and I was with someone who has been waiting to see these guys for a decade. It straight up sucked. I was right up front for the start and they lost me after about 4 songs.

I didn't watch week 2 and I only watched a little of week 1, so I'm also curious to hear people's impression of the second vs the first. I'm chalking up any criticism of the first performance to rust on Mr. 3K, which should be well worn off by Memorial Day. I believe they are playing Atlanta next weekend which should be exactly what the doctor ordered for Andre to get his groove back.

I don't feel like enough has been said about how great It's Album Time is. It is one if the best albums I've heard in a while and an early contender for best album of the year in my book. It's just so goddam upbeat and happy, I just can't help but smile and dance every time I listen to it; and that has been at last once a day since I discovered it.

Fargo is quite possibly the best thing to happen to television in quite some time. It's like they took everything I've loved on tv in the last 10 years, rolled it into one show, and added Billy Bob Thornton.
