Technically it’s a video, but we had to include it to give a better idea of what this Burble thing was all about:

    thanks Scotty!

    Yeah, we hope to get a more complete run-down from Justin soon. I think he had some connectivity issues throughout the weekend. Eventually I think he just decided not to stress about it and focus on the fun instead. probably a wise choice.

    Great coverage over at HT and YEMblog. Your on-site twitter updates were often faster than the band’s! lolz.

    the live audio stream and live status updates really made this weekend interesting. I felt like I experienced the festival in a way, albeit in a very different way than actually being in Indio. I think it’s a trend that will continue to emerge and progress. throw a webcast option into the mix and thing are bound to get really interesting.

    We’ll see what happens, Whit. I do hope the band offers more broadcasts, but if I was a betting man I’d say it’s still pretty unlikely and if they do offer more they will probably continue to be audio-based. Regardless, it was fun as hell listening to the sets and chatting with our readers as the music was happening.

    Thanks for the kudos! Looking forward to reading Justin’s take. Hope he didn’t have any photo pass hassles this time around ;)
