We made peanut butter weed cookies and I ate 2 right before Patton Oswalt came on stage. I was fucked up all the way up until the National finished. It was probably the best part of the festival for me. I ate another one during Band of Horses on Monday and it probably made the MGMT set seem a lot better than it actually was.

Have the lines to enter the show always been so slow? It got quicker everyday, but was still way too slow. I missed Mumford and Sons on Saturday because I waited an hour and a half to get into the festival. I left my campground at 12:30 and didn't get into the show until 2:20. They didn't even search us or our bags thoroughly, so I have no idea why it took so long. This about the only negative thing I can say about the whole weekend, but it made me miss one of the bands I was looking forward to seeing.

1. The National- I expected them to be amazing and they did not disappoint 2. MGMT- Easily the most fun set of the weekend for me. 3. Tegan and Sara- My biggest surprise of the weekend, this came out of nowhere for me. 4. Band Of Horses 5. Broken Social Scene
Does Dallas write lyrics for aof? I thought George did that shit.
That said, I haven't bought an alexisonfire album since their self-titled.
It has been said in interviews that the songs are written by the whole band and one person brings up an idea for a song and they write it together, so I give Dallas some credit for Alexisonfire lyrics.

His lyrics aren't that bad, they just happen to be kind of cliche. He isn't the best song writer, but the songwriting in his Full Time Band Alexisonfire is pretty good. This is just a side project that is not great, but somewhat decent. I judge him more based off of Alexisonfire than City and Colour since he has been in that band for much longer and devotes way more time towards that band.
