* Apparently, Lady GaGa was in attendance Sunday at the festival to take in some bands on the side stage. I never caught a glimpse of GaGa. I was working in the press tent at the time and got enough GaGa from there. Photographers were dispatched stat. People were going nuts in attempt to scoop the other people going nuts. That’s celebrity in America, folks.
* During my long afternoon break between The Men and Vampire Weekend I did get a chance to catch a bit of Chavez, and they ruled as usual, and some of Beach House. I still don’t get the draw of Beach House. Look, I enjoy loads of the dream-pop and shoegaze stuff, but they don’t strike me as an act as stellar as their rep. The only time I got excited was when I thought there were covering Billy Idol’s “Eyes Without a Face.” It was just a song that sounded like an Idol song. Goodbye excitement.
