Yeah 1901 got more airplay than any National single to date, and they played really well in their 2010 headlining slot. Just a safe choice. I'm not happy that I will be missing them, but obviously the Cure comes first.

I briefly slipped into a coma reading acts 5-11 of Friday, but most of the day is passable enough. The undercard is good, which is more than I can say for Saturday. If I go Saturday, I may end up seeing 360 for laughs. That's how bad it is.

I really don't know whose idea it was to let him in the country.

At a summer festival, Foals should be everyone's priority.

Two singles from it got fairly regular airplay compared to the none the National have had. I mean, 93.1 plays Bloodbuzz sometimes, but that's it. The National headlining is a joke to me. The question at this point is what is going to happen to Perry's, because it looks pretty clear to me that they're using it as a main stage this year. There are three headliners every day and besides New Order, not one of them is electronic.

The EDM on Saturday is hilariously awful. Who the fuck are these people? One of Ellie Goulding or Kendrick will be closing Perry's. Steve Aoki is the clear headliner for Friday, and Sunday appears to be Knife Party, if the billing is anything to go by. Major Lazer could too I guess.

Perry's is so weak right now thanks to the other EDM fests, which is OK with me since I never go there anyway. God I hope Kendrick ends up closing there or the Grove (bad idea) so I don't have to watch Mumford/Postal Service.

I'm really, really depressed about Perry's after closing out my weekend with Kaskade last year. I'm going to have to drop some cash on one of those EDM festivals too it looks like.

The good news is, you won't have to twist my arm to go to Perry's for once. Ellie Goulding would be manna compared to the other Saturday closers. I'm legitimately getting excited to see her at this point.

We'll have to see, I still think that they're going to do something weird like have Mums on North, NASH on South and Postal Service on Perry's. We'll see, I'd just be surprised after last year to see the Perry's headliner that far down the list. Obviously Ellie makes the most sense thought and I am jazzed as the dickens to see her.

Acts I care about, by day, with asterisks next to bands I've seen already and am therefore whatever about but will probably see them anyway:

FRIDAY
The Killers*
New Order
QotSA
Crystal Castles
Smith Westerns
Father John Misty
Jessie Ware

SATURDAY
The National*
Kendrick Lamar*
Ellie Goulding
Foals
Unknown Mortal Orchestra*

Wow, holy shit.

SUNDAY
The Cure
Phoenix*
Grizzly Bear*
Two Door Cinema Club
Beach House*
Cat Power

Angel Haze and Baroness are interesting gets that I probably won't go see but wish there were more hours in the day so I could.

So what, they're going to play Listzomania 20 times?

I kid. But I guess I am a bit irked at Phoenix all of a sudden being considered this major act when there are bands out there, e.g. The National, with strings of highly-acclaimed albums in their oeuvre.
