Bump. I was thinking today about the energy at the What Stage on Friday. The Avett Brothers will have a good crowd and a lot of people will sing along. Then some people will leave to see other things and those who remain will know they're in it for the next 5 hours. The community atmosphere combined with RodYGab's awesome music will be the perfect lead up to Radiohead's show.
Really looking forward to spending Friday at the What.
the atmosphere in the what field friday evening was absolutely incredible. for all of rod y gab and the break before radiohead the air was simply electric. the excitement was tangible; the anticipation visible on every face. ive never witnessed anything like it. even before rod y gab began the crowd was practically glowing- the dazzling performance put on by those 2 (and their amazing band) pushed the energy level through the roof
It's like, if I hand you a sandwich and am all "hey man, have a bit of this delicious ham sandwich," and then you take a bite and hand it back and are all "I'm disappointed, I was hoping for a turkey sandwich," you'd be insane
Their set blew me away! I wasn't planning on watching them, I just went to the What Stage to prepare for Radiohead. But Rod y Gab KILLED IT! They had so much energy. I raged that set so hard, but it made Radiohead's set afterwards seem like kind of a snooze.
I was really excited for them and they're show was even better than I hoped it would be! At first it was weird hearing them with a band, but they f***ing WAILED. I agree with the person above me - Radiohead was kind of boring after them! R and G's musicianship was unparallelled, IMO.
A Cinderella set for me. I'd seen them before, they're great musicians, shows can be a little boring. The energy with C.U.B.A. behind them was electric. That was the first "Holy Sh!t" set all weekend for me.

I wish I could have seen that set in any other context than being crammed in the Radiohead pit line. They sounded absolutely fantastic. And it was annoying to hear the people around me in the line biznatch about them the whole time.
