Midday Sunday is the the time we all need to be slapped in the face by a guitar just to get the blood flowing again. After 48 hours of drinking beer and liquor and eating fried food, your feet are a little heavier. A girl I met on Friday had the word “VODKA” printed on the inside of her bottom lip, and, seconds after showing me this, she took a pull from a bottle of sunscreen: a vodka coke. In short, the crowd was tired. Many were passed out in the grass, but Benjamin Booker’s swagger and dense guitar fuzz roused the rest of us. –Mike Anderson
