All Points West Festival

7/30/2009:

Who’s going to the All Points West Festival this weekend?

I really wanted to go last year (especially because of Radiohead) – but not sure I’ll have the time to check it out this year. It’s also unfortunate that the Beastie Boys had to back out due to an illness from Adam Yauch.

Radiohead, for the hell of it…

Sure, they’re not in the festival this year, but seriously – Radiohead is one of my all time top 3 favorite music groups ever – I never get sick of their songs. Here’s a fun studio version of Optimistic – which was part of a VH1 special back on 2008 (how did I miss this?)

OH – and if you care to watch the whole VH1 show (in HD) – I have the 45 minute piece after the break… awesome stuff!

(Radiohead full show…)

anybody go to the shows, if so what did you think? pretty funny that I had a much better time on Days 1 and 3 than I did on Day 2, but nature’s elements really added to the festival atmosphere. National, Yeahs, Tool, Mogwai, Coldplay were all awesome. Jay Z did a great job to close Day 1 also.

that was very cool of APW organizors to hook up Friday’s ticket holders with a freebie for Sat. or Sun., because of the driving rain on Friday. a lot of people got 2 for 1, I sold my extra outside for some beer money.

Rides your bikes and hang outside the fences. You can still see and hear all that is going on, and then you have access to LSP’s bathrooms. Bring your own beer in your backpack!

Got back from here a few hours ago, setting up for a broadcast from the event. The grounds are still muddy from yesterday and any more rain isn’t going to help any. Parking is FAR if you drive, even the lots for most artists/media require a shuttle bus ride to get to the stage area.

Imagine Radiohead, the Beastie Boys, and the Buggles all performing at the same time
