By far my favorite was Phil Lesh & Friends

I also enjoyed the first set and a half of DSO (sleepy second set but a killer St. Stephen > Not Fade Away > St.Stephen "encore"), Yonder, McLovins, and Ryan Montbleau.

I expected more out of Seven Walker and Bobby & Bruce. Zappa Plays Zappa was fun.

Pretty much everything except Primus. Really wish I could like more than their 3 hits but it all sounds the same to me. Seeing people really getting into them bothers me cause I just don't get it.

The Kind Buds rocked in VIP, the Green Vibes stage was a constant collection of great talent, the kids area music was excellent and random people jamming in camping made it a wonderful weekend of good ear food.

Primus sounded spectacularly wierd..phils set was hot but guitars were weak at points, bob and friends was good- nothing outragously great- honsby and his band was the real standout. strangefolk was good, DSO was great on thursday night- great set mattson killed it..it was a show from 89, dopapod was real good (and nice to hang with afterward), the machine was great- my first time seeing them- they sounded exactly like FLoyed. Hits some really chioce stuff.... 7 waslkers was good, mickey bored me a little, soulive was great and had a big crowd..conspiprator bored me but also had a big crowd..zappa plays zappa was tremendous guitar playing-dweezil was on fire. ryan montblue was rocking good and had a big crowd on the main stage.

Sound Tribe-old school and funky sounds. Also the best sound quality and lighting of the weekend. Only show I saw on the main field that the sound didn't seem muddled in the back.

Dopapod-Great set though a little tame for them. Seemed they toned things down a bit for the Vibes crowd

Kung Fu-I wasn't that into these guys at first but the last to shows I saw were hot as can be.

Papadosio-Good to see my friends draw a huge crowd and at 5 AM! They also keep getting better and better.

Conspirator-Always good to see my boys doing their thing even if it is not nearly as good as the biscuits

Steel Pulse (we first listened them on our honeymoon in Barbados, so it was nostalgic)
Working all day Thursday forced me to miss Zach unfortunately.

And we were so sad to be out like a light before the Budds at VIP tent. Mary's first night in, and that usually = extra drinking early >>>> early bed time.

I enjoyed pretty much everything. A few highlights for me were:

Being up by the stage for Keller. :)

Discovered Primate Fiasco while wandering around pre-Bobby. Stopped to get down with them for a little while & had a lot of fun!

First time I'd seen 7 Walkers. I definitely want to see more.

I was surprised by STS9. Didn't set out to catch their set, didn't think it was going to be my cup of tea, but heard the whole thing from camp and really enjoyed it.

Every time I see one of Mickey's projects, I love him a little more. Wish I could have heard IASW's interview with him. :sad:

Primus kicked my ass. What a great set!!! And the pig parade will go down as one of my all-time top Vibes memories.

I really liked the Avett Brothers. Never would have hung around for them if it weren't for Gotroot's recommendation. I owe you one, buddy! :)

And so much more that I'm probably forgetting, but that's what's in my still hazy brain at the moment. And I agree with everyone saying what a great job Tiger Rose did as MC. He was great!! :grin:

I was on the ferris wheel for Keller doing Best Feeling, that was kinda awesome...Steel Pulse impressed me, wasn't very familiar with them prior...tried to be on the Ferris wheel when Primus started, but a lot of people faster than my old arse had the same idea...was really impressed at the various school of rock bands we caught

I loved Steel Pulse. They're a great band with so many good songs, only a few of which they performed.

I was especially impressed with Keller. I've seen him many times and thought I knew all of his tricks. He pulled out some crazy shit and blew my mind.

1) The Primate Fiasco - if you didn't catch them, you missed out!


They were great all weekend. I caught the end of Toubab Krew, Primate Fiasco got up there on the stage with them. It was AWESOME! Such a good combination. Best part of Primate fiasco at the GV field for me was the crowd it attracted. The shaggy professor tie dye dude hand and face dancing, the clueless guy who thought he could jam with his wood flute (he really couldn't), the older tie dye lady with dangly earings jitter bugging the shit out of herself. I hope Primate Fiasco comes back every year. So nice to dance and strut across the campground with them.

Dopapod was my favorite all weekend until I saw Avett Brothers. They performed so incredibly well and the music means so much to me. Probably my new favorite Vibes set.

1. Twiddle was fucking monstrous. We were on our way in the rain to get some breakfast and got derailed with their ass-shaking goodness.


2. STS9... I waited ten years to see them live again and I was so glad that I was lucky enough to be there!
.

3. Papadosio unexpected tastiness from a band I haven't had the chance to catch yet. I couldn't have chosen a better sOundtrack for spunday sunrise.

4. Primus was awesome as always great setlist but could have been a tad jammier considering what I have seen then put out in the past
Other highlights were dopapod, kung fu, and Ryan montbleau

I was also impressed by what I caught of Twiddle on the Green Vibes stage...those guys definitely came to play and brought the heat in the rain on Friday
