+2: Kid Rock — A free hand. Anyone's.

+1: Metallica — Cold beer and a group hug (both for courage).

-1: Stuart Murdoch of Belle and Sebastian — Good reading material (a secondhand copy of Lucky Jim or the band's latest Pitchfork blurb will do).

-2: Tom Chapin of Keane — Bono's voicemail greeting.

-3: John Mayer — Red carpet and paparazzi (Jennifer Aniston optional).

The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
