2 p.m. – Trampled by Turtles plays Live in Studio A on KUMD 103.3 FM with Christine Dean. The band plays “Midnight on the Interstate” live in the studio, interrupted by a test of the emergency alert tone. Second song — “Alone.” Third song — “The Calm and the Crying Wind.”

2:28 p.m. – About 30 people in line at Clyde.

3:30 p.m. Over 400 wristbands distributed. About 600 left. No more line to wait in. Easy process.

5 p.m. Bill Flannagan, the Moon is Down, Batteries and Lookdown Moon live on a two-hour episode of The Local on KUMD.

6:30 p.m. Doors open at Clyde.

7 p.m. About 100 wristbands still available at showtime. Equal Xchange plays an impressive set, but most people aren’t paying attention.

8 p.m. Father Hennepin is in top form. By the way, Starfire hasn’t worn that coat since 1999.

9:15ish Trampled by Turtles start. Things get fuzzy.
