Well Quinn,
I guess I'll see you there... but I'm not super stoked on sunday yet unless they add some names.
Where is Silversun Pickups, I was pretty sure they were confirmed?

By Anonymous Sanders, at 12:41 PM  

yeah, day 2's definitely weaker, although I'm pretty excited about the last half of that lineup as well.

No idea about Silversun Pickups, but I think they confirmed that they were playing on their official site or myspace or something... perhaps they're one of the forthcoming acts.

fuck...right now i hate australia. missing bjork AGAIN.

By Anonymous Sean, at 12:49 PM  

Who's a guy gotta kill to get the Jesus and Mary Chain on this line-up? Interpol maybe?

By Anonymous Matt, at 2:58 PM  

I was hoping for JAMC too but I'm going to Coachella so I'll see them even if they don't do any more west coast shows.

was really hoping for a bit more out of this lineup. too much Coachella overlap.

By Anonymous g, at 3:23 PM  

matt: that made me laugh out loud... though i share the sentiment.

g: Coachella overlap is bad for you, but great for me

Uh, guys ragging on Day 2? Day 2 has fucking SMOOSH.

The rest of this I could care less about.

By Blogger Regan, at 5:46 PM  

Bad Brains will kill...

Sean, don't despair, maybe Bjork will come and it will cost somewhere around 250 dollars or so?

saturday: woot woot!

I'd love to see Bjork, but am I going to sit through Citizen Cope, and Manu Chao? No. And I don't care about any other artists on the bill that I couldn't see (or haven't already seen) in Vancouver.

Five years ago, I would have LOVED to see the Beastie Boys. Now, I think half-enjoying it would bum me out more than not seeing it at all. I'll never forget the Lou Reed debacle at Bumbershoot '02. I've learned to always be wary of artists past their prime.

I really would like to go see a festival again, though. It's been years.

By Blogger Saelan, at 1:56 AM  

Depending on the scheduling, you probably won't have to sit through either. And I totally agree that other than Bjork, anyone I want to see has/will/will again play in Van, but on Sat there's 10-12 bands I wouldn't mind checking out.

And I shared your feelings about the Beastie Boys, but I saw them when they came through last (which was about 6 years after anything worth while came out), and it was really quite good.
