lcd soundsystem, The Hold Steady, Frightened Rabbit (Sun. Other Stage)
The Black Keys, Mumford & Sons, Kele (Fri. John Peel Stage)
Ash, Julian Casablancas, Broken Social Scene, Holy F*** (Sun. John Peel Stage)
Mos Def (with full live band), Femi Kuti, Breakestra with Chali 2na, Matthew Herbert Big Band (Fri. West Holts Stage - formerly Jazz World. This is the best run of stuff I think, but having to choose this over the headliners - Gorillaz - would be heart breaking!

But why isn’t this kid getting off the stage? Is he, no, is he about preach? Is it youth Sunday already? What, he’s the youth minister? That’s great, but this isn’t youth group. He’s way too young to school me in the game of life. Oh, but this is happening. It’s tool ate for me to walk out and leave. It’s time for the junior hour of power.
Please just don’t use that phrase that all young ministers bust out. Please don’t say, oh no, you just did. You just said, “When I was growing up.” You said it like it was over, like you’ve crossed from young man into wizened old gentleman. But you’re only twenty-four. The toughest decision you’ve faced in life so far was whether to get the full meal plan or the five-day-a-week meal plan at seminary. You went with the five? That’s good to know, let me scribble that down here in the sermon notes section of my bulletin.
But I’ll forgive you that one. I’ll let that one slide as long as you don’t give me any marital advice. You’ve been married for about fifteen minutes. You’re still tan from your honeymoon. I can still kind of smell suntan lotion on you. If at any point in this sermon you try to give me marriage advice, I am going to think about college baseball. I just want to be up front about that. The toughest marriage decision you’ve faced so far is whether to exchange one of the china sets you got as a wedding gift for a George Foreman grill that is shaped like a massive charcoal grill. Don’t, I’ve done that, I fought that battle, and it was not worth it. You need more plates than you think and less George Foreman grills than you think. Trust me on that.” —On Having A Preacher Younger Than You. From Stuff Christian Like
- Don’t interrupt
- Don’t garnish your friends’ story with a story about something similar that happened to you
- Don’t go “mm hmmm” all the time
- Don’t finish people’s sentences
I do ALL of these things, ALL the time. It’s a miracle I have any friends at all. Oh wait, I DON’T.” —Esther W on what to avoid if you want be a good listener and a good friend.
