1. The best drummers of the festival to be women. Quasi's Janet Weiss, Avi Buffalo's Sheridan Riley, and Tune-Yard's Merrill Garbus were outnumbered by their male colleagues, but absolutely showed them up. All three were as charismatic as they were bombastic.
2. The worst percussionists of the festival to be women.

3. A green man.
4. A grown woman toting around a stuffed animal.
5. LiveNation selling tickets to Lilith Fair for $10
