Hands down, without a doubt in the world, the one show EVERYONE missed was William Elliott Whitmore. His performance, if it weren't for Phish would have been my number one for the weekend. The man is pure magic.
Russian Circles really surprised me. I literally heard about them the day before we left for Wakarusa so i was pumped to have something interesting to check out instead of the Boss
Oh and Tobacco was totally awesome
We were walking towards the What Stage to check out the Boss and we hear this amazing music coming out of the Troo Music Lounge. It was packed with about twice the amount of people that are usually there. It was Russian Circles tearing down the house! I didn't even know who they were and I go to my buddy "we're staying here!". We were the guys that started opening up the right side of the tent, we sat down and enjoyed the show from backstage! Here are some of the pictures I took
on this one you can see the guitar player using a technique similar to Eddie Van Halen's. That along with crowd surfing during MGMT made my 'roo.
