    Screw-ups galore at FYF day 1. A complete planning disaster by Goldenvoice. Line was over 3 hours just to get in. And that was just the start of what has to be one of the biggest clusterfarks I've ever seen from a big festival. The list is too numerous to mention. Just awful.

    The one thing that saved it? The performances I saw yesterday were among the best I have ever seen at a festival. Slowdive in particular... I am almost speechless. Their slot at sunset and the perfect setlist were unreal. I cannot believe how great they were live. (adgy I know you like your shoegazer- you owe it to yourself to try and get into one of their Ace Theater shows). And Boris, they're great! A total hoot live. Tons of smoke, flailing hair, over the top fuzz, double-neck basses, and a drummer who crowd surfs. I Loved It! Also saw complete sets from Tycho, Slint, Man Man and some of Grimes and Run The Jewels. All were frickin amazing.

    For all the screw ups, one thing GV did get right is the sound. Every stage was pristine in that department. Could have stood for it to be a little louder at times but overall among the best I've heard at an outdoor festival.

    Going back today for round 2, but with some trepidation. If I see that line around the block again, probably will bite the bullet and bail. But trying to stay optimistic. Really want to see Darkside and the Blood Brothers.

    so i saw drive like jehu play in balboa park last night. post hardcore punk music accompanied by the music of the giant organ at the organ pavilion. it was f***ing amazing. first (and probably only for the foreseeable future) show they've played in 19 yrs. lots of children in the crowd (as well as my own!); i guess that's what happens when a band disappears for nearly 20 yrs and their fans have all that time to procreate. haha! for anyone who doesn't know, the band comprises members of rocket from the crypt and mark trombino who's a famous music producer these days. seriously, they freaking killed it.

    Popped into our Alternative "xfest" over the weekend. Getting a dozen acts from across the US is pretty decent since we don't get much between small indies at the University or massive Saddledome sell-out draws.

    Saw Fitz and the Tantrums, Death Cab For Cutie, and Jack White on Saturday night. No complaints.

    Sunday I only had time to see Dear Rouge (a great Canadian act who I met for autographs afterwards and whose album will finally come out in October), July Talk, and MS MR (they were awesome). Left before I could see Cage the Elephant, Foster the People, and Arctic Monkeys.

    I caught the last show of the Soundgarden - Nine Inch Nails tour. Soundgarden was very, very good but Reznor and NIN was just about life changing. His combination of sight and sound was something I have never seen before. Also he announced it may be his last live performance ever. Glad I saw him.
