my hopes for Outside Lands skyrocketed!
1. I didn’t know that you can’t say Mali on TV. Interesting…
2. Miley’s performance = Worst Acid Trip Ever
3. Daft Punk got screwed over! No respect!
Kurt Vile and the Chromatics were great, Weir with an amazing set of The National was awesome, and the food and comedy (Bamford!) were cool too, but if we’re talking absolute best, I’d put Karen O’s stage presence up there as well. She was unbelievable!
Also, free Chipoltle and Ben & Jerry’s everyday…
Daft Punk – Get Lucky (obviously)
Vampire Weekend – Diane Young (pretty good runner-up)
Queens of the Stoneage – My God is the Sun
Smith Westerns – Varsity
The National – Pink Rabbits
Kurt Vile – Walkin’ on a Pretty Day
Chance the Rapper – Smoke Again
Janelle Monae – Q.U.E.E.N. ft. Erykah Badu

It was good, but I don’t think anything can beat Ready, Able…
One of the most uncomfortable things I have ever seen! Well played Mr. Cox…
My vote is for the guy rapping from the car in “Friday.” That stuff was dope!
Best list today!
