I’m still recovering from a cold I snagged this weekend, but the trip to Treasure Island was entirely worth it. Chilly and windy weather suited the day’s music and I’m still in awe that I got to see Grizzly Bear, Beirut, The Decemberists, Yo La Tengo, and The Flaming Lips consecutively. The festival was well-organized and so San Francisco with its separate trash-recycling-compost bins and solar panels. I wrote down several memorable quotes from artists this year, but my favorite had to be Wayne Coyne closing out the night by saying, “It was freezing earlier, but that doesn’t even matter anymore. That’s the fucking power of enthusiasm!” I really recommend this event for indie music lovers so mark it on your 2010 planner and be sure to put a little cash aside for the occasion. Since this year was a sellout, I’m thinking next year’s lineup will be equally as impressive. Check out the photos here.
