Today was started off with the Fleet Foxes. I saw them back at Capitol Hill Block Party, and they were still very impressive. Then it was off to Jose Gonzalez. AMAZING. Then to CSS. They were a lot of fun and exactly what I expected.
After CSS, my brother and I got down to our roots and attended Robert Early Keen, followed by Erykah Badu. Then we caught a bit of MGMT.
The highlight of the day was John Fogerty. He stole my heart. He covered all of the classic CCR and then some. I could have watched him for the rest of the night.
Iron and Wine followed John, and I have to say I think that they were one of my big disappointments. There was a whole band on stage and it sounded like easy-jazz. The last song was played only on an acoustic and almost made up for the rest of the set....but I remember just being ready for him to be done...and also wishing the lines for the toilet were faster.
To close the evening, Beck performed. BECK. So good. I had told my brother that I had hoped that he was just going to play his hits for the whole set, and my wishes were granted!!! Thank you Beck, for putting on a fantastic show.
On another note, I find it quite ironic that WaMu (R.I.P.) is a major sponsor of this event. Or should I saw JP Morgan is? They have a stage, a photo booth and a lot of freebies. Had Alanis Morrisette written the song "Ironic" in 2008, I am sure this would have made the cut for song lyrics.
Tomorrow is swim day before the festival. I can't wait.
