Cat Power came after Rodrigo y Gabriela on the main stage Sunday. It was raining. I decided it was worth getting a little wet so I stood there getting wet (I didn't bring an umbrella and I'm too cool to wear a poncho). Like they did at Lollapalooza, Chan Marshall and band blazed through an hour set that was a mix of the bluesier, big-band new stuff and the mellower old stuff that I like better. Better or not, her whole set was worth paying attention to and then it stopped raining (though it would start again later in the day). At that point I decided to make the best of the rest of Sunday. Also, I had never seen the new version of The Secret Machines. More pictures and recap below...

As previously mentioned, I saw Rogue Wave after Amadou y Mariam and they sounded great. Their very young crowd all got very excited when the song from the Zune commercial came on. It is a good song. Someone I was talking to said that one day Rogue Wave will write a hit pop song and they'll be huge. Seems reasonable. Their All Points West performance definitely made me like them as a live band for the first time.

After Cat Power came The Secret Machines on a smaller stage. It's weird to say, but I think it's been years since the last time I saw them. They have a different lineup now which was also kind of weird. I didn't love it. I used to think they had a lot of Pink Floyd in them. Someone pointed out that they "sounded like Rush" at All Points West. I kind of agreed. You could say that The Secret Machines and Earl Greyhound combined were the classic rock segment of the festival.

I've never seen or heard Grace Potter and the Nocturnals. That didn't change at All Points West. Kyle had fun taking pictures of them though...
