I was eagerly awaiting a Megapuss show, but if Devendra wants to get his solo show back on the road, bring that shit to Roo or Roth!

With that said Saturday looks like a raging good time, have fun west-coasters

im definitely not going to be anywhere near this place but looking at the dates made me realize 4/20 is on a monday. good thing ive got spring break. Now I can hang out and smoke some blunts.

Also I would like everyone to know when I hate stories (and when others do as well) so instead of having us not rate it and make us look like we didn't care there should be some way to rate story's on a negative scale like stars for story's that have at least some merit to them but then for story's like this and anything on u2 it could be poop logs

So for this story I give it 4 chunky logs

Where is the justice in Paul McCartney and Leonard Cohen appearing at this festival? They just seem out of place.

Yeah, I don't understand either why McCartney has been added to this "indie" fest. Has anyone been to a Paul show and seen the crowds there? I mean, honestly it feels like if they just had a sick DJ spin a shitload of Beatles mash-ups at 1 A.M. under a phreaky tent, it would be just as fun and or impactful. This Paul-ella is just a bit too close to Sprinsteen playin' Phisharoo... are scantily-clad 20 something's and the array of 30-40 year olds REALLY gonna dig a Jude sing-a-long after a Girl Talk set? I guess it's a pick your stage/day/hour fest as well, no worries... "get back Jo-Jo... go home."
