Looks like Rod y Gab have added The Mother Hips as their opener. That wins for me!

First off the topic at hand, it's amazing that Rod y Gab are doing this and I'm so psyched for it. But now I wanna know how the hell is NMAS opening for DBT. I mean don't get me wrong DBT is an awesome band, but in my opinion it should be vice versa with NMAS as the headliner. And lastly does anyone know when they announce the lineup for The Vibes

Nice! I love football, this band and beer and to have all of them on the same day...looks like Sunday is shaping up to be pretty good.

I would say they are more like jacked-up classical rather than metal. They do play metal covers though, and what's a label anyway?

rod y gab is sick! I don't know if I'd classify them as metal, even though they play some heady metal covers! Also the NFL has done a great thing by not letting MTV do their half time shows anymore. There's finally good music being played during the half time show!
