Holy crap, was this thing a dud or what? I happened to be driving past it on 91 at around 9pm on the 2nd day, and the place looked dead empty. Usually whenever there's a show at the Meadows you can see the parking lot jammed up with cars, even from the highway.

Wonder what your friends at the Merry Picnic are going to say about it, after they spent weeks hyping this thing every single day on their blog. You know, the "20-somethings" who didn't find out about The New Pornographers until 2008, but they're going to tell us about new music.
