Who else did everyone see this past weekend? It was such an amazing weekend. I will be going back next year for sure!

I still can't believe how awesome Muse was.

Rocking out with Foo in the rain will be a memory I'll never forget. Shit was pretty bananas near the front, but we all took care of each other when it came to helping people crowd surf out of there.

Also, the Cage The Elephant set was one of the ones caught by the first downpour earlier in the day. Anyone who is catching a Foo show with them opening later in the N. America leg is in for a real treat. Hands down, one of the best live up and coming acts you can catch.

I was working it so I saw everyone on the Music Unlimited stage, as well as some of the Sony stage.

Highlights: Ryan Bingham, Delta Spirit, Titus Andronicus, Fitz & the Tantrums, Muse, Eminem, Cage, and the Foos.

Finally got to see these guys live after years of wanting to (and having to miss them for one reason or another). I don't have any other live performances to compare it to but this was one of the most amazing experiences of my life. Exactly what I'd expected a Foo Fighters show to be like. The torrential downpour during "My Hero" has been on my mind since Sunday. The entire crowd was singing their hearts out and it felt like the band was just feeding off that energy.

On another note...unfortunately, we missed "Everlong" because my husband started having a seizure and had to be carried out by EMS. If anyone that was standing near us is on this board, I just wanted to say THANK YOU. We didn't know any of you but everyone was completely amazing...offering us water, running to get medical staff, helping us get over the barricade so he could get to the medical tent, etc... It wasn't the way we wanted to close out the show but still a memorable night overall.

Ryan Bingham, because their guitarist ate shit ate the end? Haha
