Indeed the cool temperatures and intermittent drizzle last Friday (by some accounts, the first time it's ever rained in the festival's history) provided a perfect setting to see a couple Sheffield bands. And indeed it was Pulp that ended up a highlight of the entire weekend. Despite coming of musical age in the days of Britpop, I had never had the opportunity to see them live until last week. And they certainly impressed. The crowd was quite welcoming for what was their first show in Souther California in some 15 years.
Other highlights of the weekend definitely included Saturday's headlining slot from Radiohead, as well as sets from GIRLS, Arctic Monkeys, The Vaccines, and Wild Flag.

"This is a pre-Pixies song that I wrote when I was about 15. It's about winos and hobos travelling on the trains, who die in the California Earthquake. Before earthquakes, everything gets very calm, animals stop talking and birds stop chirping and there's no wind. It's very ominous."
