"She was doing this (imitates Wolf of Wall Street chest-thumps). I almost punched her in her fucking face"
-- girl to a group of her friends about another girl after the Welcome to Houston performance. I think she wasn't a fan of Leo not winning an Oscar or something.

"I don't fucking care about his problems, I have all my money and all my beer!"

-- a shirtless bro rather content about his lot in life compared to someone else in his party whom he couldn't find

Drunk girl waves over to someone in the VIP area:
Drunk Girl: asfalsj asdfoaho fasdfabo.
VIP Guy looks puzzled. He moves closer:
VIP Guy: I don't understand what you're saying.
Drunk Girl: dfasdfhoi dafsd bibuer beer.
VIP Guy: I'm sorry, I can't understand what you're saying.
Girl 2 (leaning over Drunk Girl to address VIP Guy): Do not give her any more alcohol.

"Step then, bitch!"

-- one young woman challenging another to a fistfight for nudging ahead of her in the mud pit moments before Vampire Weekend's set

"I hate those fucking beach balls. They always hit me in the head"

-- Unlucky woman in the Die Antwoord crowd

"I ate enough paper to fill a notebook."
-- Random guy explaining to listeners his FPSF acid experience

A fest-goer with an empty cup asked a stranger if he'd accept $10 in exchange for six ounces of his unopened beer. The beer-holder said that seemed a bit steep. Empty Cup reminded Beer-Holder since he had the commodity, he could set the price. Once the economics lesson ended, one guy had a filled cup and the other had five bucks.

"We're all human water balloons"

-- One young man explaining water conductivity to his friend under the threat of storms before Vampire Weekend's set

"Wow. Half the crowd cheered and half the crowd booed"

-- Jack White commenting on the audience reaction to mentioning the Astros, after explaining he and his kids had seen a ballgame Saturday at Minute Maid

Why would they make JUPITER the SMALLEST stage??" -- random guy who came up to debate astronomy Favorite.


Stepping out of a port-o-potty, an intoxicated young lady said to her friend, "Sorry, it wouldn't flush."
