It was a great time. Subsonics opened and were awesome. Bradford Cox joined the Black Lips for a couple songs and I got to talk to him for good bit after the show. It really made the year for me. He also said that we will get to hear those hundreds of songs one day that were made during the Monomania sessions.
Did you guys hear about the 600 lb disco ball crashing into the stage at the Avett show between sets? It was freaking insane. It was about 2 min after Shovels & Ropes left the stage. It sounded like a crazy loud gunshot. At first I thought it went into the crowd because I was straight back from the stage and from my angle it looked like the ball was over the crowd, not the stage. The show was delayed a few minutes but they just played around it. It could have been really bad.
