What you got back home, little sister, to play your fuzzy warbles on? I bet you got little save pitiful, portable picnic players. Come with uncle and hear all proper! Hear angel trumpets and devil trombones. You are invited.
There's really only a few; People Under The Stairs (dipped out to bed just before the show), Elvis Perkins, and either Robyn Hitchnock/Alan Toussaint.
The rest from 09 that I wanted to see but didn't were because I was seeing another great show... however, if no conflicts, I'd have stayed for all of Femi Kuti and King Sunny Ade, as I only saw little bits of those two.
TV On The Radio was the only band I really hated missing entirely, but it was worth it to see Al Green.
Oh, and Merle Haggard, whatever I was doing during that... Snoop or Erykah.

There were a few conflicts that drew me away from certain sets, and I had the benefit of having seen certain bands prior to Roo, so overall I think I saw just about everyone I cared to. That said, the only acts I missed that I wished I hadn't were Yeasayer, Phoenix, Al Green, Amadou and Mariam, and Zac Brown
The only sets I missed that I was kicking myself were Girl Talk and Gomez.
I missed Gomez because me and my husband couldn't get the kids moving in the morning. They needed showers and breakfast and stuff. It just didn't happen.
I missed Girl Talk because I was almost 6 months pregnant and just didn't have it in me.
I saw everything else I wanted to see with two kids in tow (5 & 6) and being pregnant, and having a husband that hasn't been to the farm before. Also I have been there 5 times before so I'm no stranger to the schedule. And in 09 I was a prefest volunteer, so by the time the fest started I had already been sleeping in a tent for 4 days.
So all in all I say that's not to shabby. I would say we saw about 6-10 acts a day and managed to spend a lot of time in the Kidzjam(love those people).
Oh yeah... and to all of those who missed David Byrne for the Beastie Boys. Man I'm sorry. David Bryne was so awesome. Eventhough I had to enjoy it by myself because the kids and husband were sleeping on our blanket. Well my daughter lasted through half of it.
We did go see some of the Beastie Boys and they were great too. But David was better.

I grew up worshipping Rock and Roll like a religion. I know its shortcomings and strengths but have loved it unconditionally all the same since I was eight-years old. I ran away and joined the circus and honestly, I'm still as obsessed as I was as a boy. I'm not a kid anymore but I still remember how it felt and it doesn't really feel all that different to me now.
