Band list released on WXRT this Monday morning...I would be a little surprised if this list would be accurate. I would also be going!

Word.

Just saw them in Tokyo, a few weeks ago, and even though it was a pared-down lineup, it was still a really wonderful show. I nearly wept for joy, during the best version of "7/4" I've ever seen--more than 15 people on stage, for that one, including an entire local Japanese band that BSS'd met at a train station, that afternoon, and invited to play brass, keys, a guitar or three, and even provide some vocals for certain songs, after finding out that they were huge fans. You should've seen these kids--they were the happiest, proudest people I've ever seen, and their joy was overwhelming, contagious, and totally uninhibited. God, what a night/song...

Full lineup is out.

The addition of Explosions in the Sky, Cadence Weapon, and Rogue Wave makes me very happy.

Okkervil! Explosions! The NATIONAL!

So what have I got then? Let's see...

Radiohead
Kanye
Wilco
The Raconteurs
Bloc Party
The Black Keys
Gnarls Barkley
Broken Social Scene
Cat Power
Lupe Fiasco
THE NATIONAL OMG
Explosions
Okkervil
Battles
Grizzly Bear


That's 15 I'd absolutely love to see (even though I've seen 9 before, some several times). That makes for a great lineup.

ACL's comes out a week from tomorrow. I don't see it beating this.

Damn, I'm definitely there. The addition of Explosions makes light shoot out of my chest, yeah, that's how happy I am about this lineup.

yeah wtf

oh well, i really don't have any money right now anyway, so im gonna wait til i have enough money for Lolla and just go to that. It'd be great to just go to a Radiohead show, but I'd much rather get the chance to check out them and so many other awesome bands

I think I am going to focus just on the Radiohead show knowing that I rather see a full Radiohead set rather than a scaled back one at a festival where I will be a million miles from the stage. That's just me though. Tough choice. I would REALLY like to see Love and Rockets again. Hopefully they will tour outside of Lollapalooza.

IMPY: When is ACL?

September 26-28

Lineup is out Tuesday.

I'm in the process of working out my flights and hotel for Lolla. It's going to be quite an expense, but the once and future Miss impy really wants to go and already has her plane ticket. I can't say no to that.
