*The weather was perfect 75 degrees & sunny
*Obviously tons of Brown & RISD students made for a lively scene
*There were a couple tapers set up dead center halfway between the stage and foh mix position when I arrived midway through Yo La tenga's set.
I chose the record of the right stack. Because of gusty winds I wore windscreens on the AK40's in my hat.
*The sound was blistering loud and there were issues during the set. The mix on the first couple songs is really poor.
The Lips were using a new sound engineer - who had never mixed them before. Besides the PA buzz there was a intermittent static.
You can really hear it when Wayne does the Yoshimi sing-a-long. This was not an issue with the PA, but a delay that was having issues.
*The other copy might sound better - I was too close to the subs, getting bounced around by college hipsters.
*Either way - a cool way to spend a Saturday afternoon.
*I included a few pics that I took from my spot.
*Oh yeah - the dancers on the left side of the stage in purple - wow. One redhead to be specific ;)
