What an incredible weekend!!! That is seriously a great fest, and the most perfect city to have it! It was so awesome to meet you all finally! Of all the acts I saw, the only one that didn't connect was William Basinski...everyone else was spot on! I forget who was handing out the Panda Posse tags, but thx...I feel like an official panda now.
In regards to Zola Jesus...phenomenal show! Loved when she walked up and down the aisles. Also, there was a school of jellyfish sitting right behind me which was awesome!
Edit: This has become my new favorite city fest!!!

Woah, what a whirlwind of a weekend. Pretty much all of my pre planned activities went to shiz fairly quickly haha...including brunch, man I really wanted to attend that but the time period between when the shows ended on Friday night and when the sun came up on Saturday morning were some of the strangest hours of my life. I saw panda's every where though, whenever I had a chance I tried to come up and say hey to y'all. Bonzai, Mayo, and the folks that were posted up at at Deltron 3030/Purity Ring were super cool! Sorry if I don't remember exactly who I met, I think I associate y'all more with your avatars rather than your usernames. Next time whether it be moogfest or bonnaroo or what have you I'll actually stay in one place long enough to catch a show with the pandas.
Last night took the cake for me. I was 2-3 rows back and dead center for all of pretty lights. I pretty much lost my shiz when he remixed "Time Keeps on Slipping" by the steve miller band. That's one of my all time favorite songs and I was shocked when he played it. Best musical moment of the weekend for me.
Social media is a killer though dude! I have a feeling there's going to be some unsavory photo's of myself surfacing in the next few days. My baptist aunt doesn't need to see my rage face on facebook.
I also wish I knew the orb was going so late. I was hopping all around town looking for live music after 12:30 :\
