I went to beavertown once. The queue was big so I went somewhere else. 3 bars within a 30 second walk works well for this. Same with the white toilets in the middle where the queue was always big. There were 2 other lots just up or down the path. Certainly did not have a problem with queues.
Kids. That is a whole other thread and I actually am happy if people want to bring their kids, and I don't care if the older ones run around like maniacs. I just don't understand why you would want to bring babies - basically - too young to remember it, and young enough that you are going to miss it all yourself due to dealing with them. Seriously, wait until they are 6+ it is much better. They will appreciate it more and you will have more free time. But hey, it does not bother me, I just don't understand the appeal.
Lots of people seemed to go on Sunday and everywhere felt quieter. Ah well their loss.
Not one for rushing from stage to stage, preferring the hanging out method of festival attending, but on reflection, I did manage to see quite a lot and I likes nearly all of it .....
bas jan: not really in the mood
yo la tengo: much freakier that expected, which is good as far as I'm concerned
daniel blumberg: ok
hiss golden messenger: liked a lot esp. that harmonica at the end
this is the kit: had to duck out, family emergency, back for ....
josh t pearson: liked a lot, even the crap jokes

gruff: yep I like the stuff he is doing now a lot
oh sees: left a bit of my brain there. It was great for me. want to see them again now for a proper length set.
richard dawson: unexpectedly good. Really good.
wave pics: long time listener, first time live, so it was a plus. I don't think the guy was mean to Jurado personally. Maybe reading between the lines he was a bit snide about not being asked the first time or maybe its the way it sounded, I don't care really as like he said, I don't know who Damien Jurado is.
white denim: much groovier than expected
