The band, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, totally stole the night away from Kings of Leon. Other people on Twitter agree that Kings of Leon were disappointing tonight. The Yeah Yeah Yeahs had a gorgeous set with a lot of beautiful red colored lighting. Their stage presence and energy was much better than Kings of Leon who seemed boring and yesterday. The Yeah Yeah Yeahs seemed to be filled with energy and excitement as they jumped around the stage. Many people were seen walking away from the Kings of Leon stage and towards the show being performed by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Additionally, when even the older folk sitting with their camping gear under the big oak tree on the grassy null facing the Livestrong stage decided it was time to get up and move cross park, well that about sums up the performance by Kings of Leon. They were not impressive and much overrated and had nothing to offer the crowd except for a light show that couldn’t be beat by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs.
I’m not saying that Kings of Leon aren’t worth seeing, however tonight they didn’t perform. Their music is better heard from an Internet radio station such as 977music.com which doesn’t have any admission or membership fees.
The weather today held out great and we didn’t have to break out our ponchos. It was warm with a slight breeze. The lines for the bathroom were long and the actual facilities were horrendous. If there is one thing that ACL needs to do, they need to take care of the bathrooms especially for the ladies. The food and drink lines weren’t too bad considering the amount of people eating. The prices on both were very reasonable. Unfortunately I ate at Hoffbrau steaks and didn’t enjoy the steak sandwich I ordered. It was literally a cheap piece of meat on a bun with no condiments provided. It was overpriced for what it was. However, overall the food at ACL seemed good. Tomorrow I will sample more of the food being sold such as pizza, skewers, gyros, wraps, smoothies, kettle corn, and tacos.
