I'm sorry, but ...

The New Pornographers, with neither Neko Case nor Dan Bejar, still should have been the headliners of Rock the Garden. I know I left before Andrew Bird had finished, but it isn't like he was going to close with anything comparable to "The Bleeding Heart Show" followed by the most spot-on cover of "Don't Bring Me Down" I have ever heard in my life.

The Wilcos love Andrew Bird but I can't seem to get into him. Love me some New Pornographers, though. Hope you had a great time!

He's good and I like him and all, but it just wasn't ... right. I hate getting all hyped up and then having to sit through a band that is so blah afterward.
