Lots of interesting things here. On Saturday, I'll be at the Balance Stage for most of the day. Dan Deacon and Girl Talk back to back? Damn. On Sunday my only must see is Menomena. I need to do some research on some of the Sunday bands so I don't opt for the wrong stage and miss a killer show. I'll probably check out Of Montreal (last saw them at Common Grounds in Arlington) and The Cool Kids (I love the old school rap). Missing the New Pornographers would probably be a mistake.

Any thoughts on who Yoko's special guests be?

Notice we probably don't need to get to the festival until 3 PM or so. That'll allow for some sleeping in (for those who plan to have hangovers), pool time, and even some touring around the city.

I plan on having my own Ferris Bueller's Day Off during the down time. Including wearing the aforementioned big white robe.
