I saw Yo La Tengo, Thurston Moore, My Morning Jacket, Mark Kozelek, Dr. Dog and a show that made Lou Reed get younger by the second with Moby at his side. Ezra did a great job with his cover “Heroin,” Dr. Dog was really energized and made me want to dance with them. Thurston Moore was great to see, Yo La Tengo was a blast and My Morning Jacket was exciting.

Moby and Lou Reed took the stage to do a slowed down version of “Walk On The Wild Side,” which is one of my favorites by him. It took a little for Reed to get into it but when he did there was no stopping him. Honestly, the longer he played, the younger he looked. He got to his element and it was great to see. The interaction between him and Moby was cool too. I love collaborations. It’s just the magic of the music industry to me.

Anyway, they jammed our for a little at the end of “Walk On The Wild Side” and had some back up singers to do the “do do dos” (you know how that goes) and Reed was just smiling and swaying. I’m glad I got to see that.

Then Reed walked off stage and left immediately and I saw Moby follow and he was a few feet away so I yelled “Moby!” and he turned around and I told him he did well and he gave me the thumbs up. You know, my opinion counts so much. (Moby pic on right)

Later, we caught Ezra Furman and The Harpoons and every time I see them I like them more and more. I ran into Andrew Langer from The Redwalls there too.
