Lil Wayne bumpin' the speakers. Best opener ever.
Who knew Superchunk bumped to Lil Wayne? What a sight.
Nobody beats Superchunk. Nobody. Except Pavement.

Writers versus photographers. Who wins? Feel like starting a mutiny.
Superchunk apparently recording new material. Heaven is the new 90s.
I've never seen so many people close their eyes during songs as if in prayer. Appropriate.
Chris Gray, 3:10 p.m.: Superchunk was one of the first bands I saw after moving to Austin in 1993 Nostalgia is nothing to trifle with.
Brandon Hernsberger, 3:40 p.m.: Is "Precision Auto" the best song of all time? Could be.
Chris Gray, 3:41 p.m.: People shouldn't be allowed to start a band until they're 30. Slack, motherfucker.
Dan Oko, 3:45 p.m.: Just cut huge line at the VVM party and am standing in front of Superchunk yelling "Motherfucker!" with my first cold beer of the afternoon. The xx next. Quoth Joe Strummer, "Should I stay or should I go?"
