Hey, AT&T, thanks for sponsoring more than one stage. But maybe next time your money would be better spent making sure people aren't cursing your name when their cell phones don't work anywhere near Zilker Park.

"Awesome. But what if we're not the only ones with that either?"
"Wait a minute, man. I just had a killer idea..."

The Arcade Fire kicked ass. No joke.
