Oracular Spectaculor is a great album. When i first saw the cover I was like "hells yes, this should be interesting." It is two guys but they have a full on band that performs with them. I saw them last year and it was awesome - they are billed for thursday right? I cant see them getting a big slot either. I wish! but doubting.

I like the album, but I've heard mixed reviews about them live. I have also heard that while they were terrible live at one point, they have gotten a whole lot better.
So I'm not sure what to think, but I'll definitely catch these guys.
Like you said, the live reviews were pretty rough when they were first hitting the circuit, but since this last tour with Yeasayer, they've been more positive, if not horribly glowing. I wouldn't expect the second coming or anything, but I'm hoping they'll pick up their game for a festival setting.
