 VHS or Beta, Kasabian & the Dandy Warhols are my highlights.

 Mr. Cunningham, did you have on a yellow t-shirt and brown cords on day one? I took a picture of a dude in that outfit rocking out to M83 because I was so taken by his dancemania enthusiasm at 12:30 in the afternoon.

 Haha yes, that was me! Please send me a copy!

 Will do! I enjoyed the hell out of that show, too. I was honestly glad you were there because before I saw you I wondered if only I cared.

 Mr. Cunningham - I tried to send the picture to your Stylus address, but it bounced back. Please advise.

 I love it how everyone says "Canadians rock!" like they're all surprised. Good article, though - the idea of being stuck between Dashboard Confessional and the Brian Jonestown Massacre doesn't exactly thrill me either.

 I still love BJM, but they were awful. I would've felt like an idiot telling people to get there early to see that 'concert'. It was more like a stand-up comedy act. Anton ripping on Dashboard was probably the funniest entertainment of the whole weekend. Sadly, the music was probably least entertaining. Can't win em all.
