They will bring the fucking heat Louisville. Waterfront Park is the shit. Saw LCD Soundsystem open for Arcade Fire there and it was unreal. The Jacket will definitely be better due to the fact that it is a home town show.

I thought we agreed that we were'nt going to use the "Melt Face" term anynmore. It sucks. Anyone second that?

The term "Face MELT" should have died with Phish! When Phish returns to their mid-90's form we can them use the term "Face MELT"
