Saturday brings the noise: the intricate, apocalyptic progressive-rock of Tool and the distortion-drenched post-punk of My Bloody Valentine, with comic relief from the manic gypsy-rock of Gogol Bordello and torchy passion from Neko Case. There are more post-punk and indie-rock variations from Arctic Monkeys, “¦And You Will Know Us By the Trail of Dead, Tokyo Police Club, White Rabbits, and Cage the Elephant, along with more light-hearted dance beats from the Ting Tings and Crystal Castles and the introspection of St. Vincent.
