Sasquatch, continued  
What Made Milwaukee Famous :-D This is what you get for being open to serendipitous discovery.

Blue Scholars :-) Slightly above average for hip-hop. Of course, my taste in hip hop is so poorly nuanced that "slightly above average" may be "world class".

The Heavenly States :-| Unimpressive

People's Republic of Comedy :-| The last guy in this batch was fairly funny, but the first one was painfully bad. Kindle time.

The Cops :-) The most punk-cred I've witnessed all weekend. Mostly managed to drown out the indie-hipster-emo-pop-crap of Tegan and Sara, although we did hear some nauseating bits echoing from the main stage between songs.

Giant Elephant Ear (split with Kat) :-) fried flat-bread as a delivery mechanism for sugar. Delicious, on the concert-food scale. Probably would have been better with sugar on only one side.

The Presidents of the United States of America :-D Unmitigated Fun.

Michael Franti and Spearhead :-) Surprisingly good. I bit more musically distinctive than Blue Scholars, without going as far as M.I.A.

Death Cab For Cutie :-) I didn't really care for the songs I recognized, but really enjoyed the songs that I didn't recognize. May have to get a couple mp3s from their latest album.

The Cure :-| Maybe it was the live experience, maybe Robert Smith's voice has mellowed with age, but I didnt get the fingernails-on-chalkboard effect. No violent hatred, but nothing to really LIKE. Was very glad for my goggles - they heavily used the blindingly-bright lights.

Still need to do a good read-through of today's bands, but the expected highlight will be Rodrigo Y Gabriella.

Considering heading out early, to catch a late-night showing of Speed Racer when we get back to Seattle.

Save the trolls!
Oh No! I've been poorly attacked by an Anonymous Moron! How will I ever survive this blow to my self esteem?

I have the latest Death Cab if you want.
