One more day to go, sorry not much in the way of an update yesterday but it has been crazy around here. A lot of preparation for the weekend, friends coming into town, etc. Here is how the weekend will go. I will update all weekend with recaps of all of the performances that I see. And I will have more photo's up than at Lollapalooza, no more technical problems. The weather is looking good and I couldn't be more ready.

This is my list of aftershows for the weekend, come join us:
