AP style has abandoned the Oxford comma.

Who gives a fuck about an Oxford comma?

 
I'm so sorry. I had to do it.

It wasn't a grammatical example, I really do like cooking my family and pets. Preferably while playing Arcade Fire at a very high volume.

Trying to get some support around a sideshow in Brisbane. They are only doing Sydney and Melbourne (again).

Blur pulled out of Big Day Out in Aus and NZ as the organisers wouldnt allow them to swap with Arcade Fire on the bill

Pearl Jam are headliners, then Arcade Fire just before them on the main stage. Blur were set to play the mini stage just after Pearl Jam finished.

Arcade Fire have only been big for 5 mins - Blur should play 2nd fiddle to Pearl Jam.
So fair enough for Damon and co to pull out

Arcade Fire should be on the other stage. They dont have any classic singalong songs for a main stage.

I think Beady Eye should headline.

In fact they should get rid of all the other acts and just have them play for two days straight.

LEGENDARY

I think Blur deserves a headlining spot over Arcade Fire, especially since Reflektor was a step backwards commercially, but it is ludicrous to suggest that they aren't a great festival band.

But do you think Blur should have jumped ship over it?

That song is shite - the crowd were too polite to bottle them off the stage

Arcade Fire look too weired on stage - too much pratting about
Its all fake - an act - "oh we are so serious about our music, oh we're so special"

Blur would keep it real - proper tunes, despite Damon pratting about on stage

Pearl Jam are huge so faor play for them being headliners - but they are nothing special

Maybe some further details regarding their departure will come out, but the organiser who has been most vocal so far never takes the blame for anything. Bottom line is they're not coming

Scored 2 sweet seats in the presale, GA on a Tuesday after work is too much effort in an arena and my wife always struggles to see unless right at the front. Interestingly all tickets were the exact same price, so I won't feel like a douchebag in my awesome seat.

So unless Blur's replacement is suitably exciting I'm going to take up their offer of a refund. As much as I'd love to see Pearl Jam, $185 for a 2 hour set won't do.
