When a cornucopia of pop music is dumped on a sprawling festival grounds, tough decisions must be made.

Yesterday on Click Track, we announced the set times for Saturday's Virgin Mobile FreeFest at Merriweather Post Pavilion. And while the scheduling is tight, there are some overlapping sets that have us flipping coins.

Who will you see? Take a look at the schedule below and then scroll down to vote in our polls.

Yeasayer or Neon Indian? I vote for beer and checking out the booths.

Dip out of Pavement? Musicians are a lot like wine. You can stick them on a shelf for many years, dust them off and serve them at a party. The problem is shelving doesn't turn a bad wine good. I will be avoiding the pavilion the entire time they are on stage. Joan Jett, on the other hand, should have had a pleasant mellowing effect from her years of shelving.

Yeasayer is the easy choice if I can get to the show in time (Terps game).

I never got Pavement, so it's Sliegh Bells or dinner during their set.

Is there any realistic choice between MIA and LCD, which is why TI dropping off the bill has really screwed up this show? Not only is MIA an overhyped opener, but her set will be over nearly an hour before LCD is done. Once she's done, anyone who bothered to listen to her will not be able to get onto the lawn of the pavilion stage to see LCD.
