Oh trust me I turned on them the minute they headlined lollapalooza the first time, but at least that you're there were other ace headliners to make up for them

And are actually good?

I don't understand how Mumford & Sons are considered a headliner. But whatever, I like em.

To me, the hands down two biggest bands in this show are The Cure and The Killers, and nobody else comes close. New Order should be bigger though, but they've almost got a semi-cultish following.

OK, on the eve of picking up a ticket to see The Cure for the first time (ZOMG ZOMG ZOMG), I'll give you all what you've been waiting for....MY LIST (* I have seen before and bold are must sees):

Friday:
The Killers*
New Order

Imagine Dragons
Band of Horses (I passed on them last time, because of The Killers)
Crystal Castles
Frightened Rabbit *
Emeli Sande
Jessie Ware

Deap Vally (For you, Laz)

Saturday:
The Postal Service
The National*
The Lumineers
Ellie Goulding
Foals

HAIM

Sunday:
The Cure
Vampire Weekend*
Two Door Cinema Club
Beach House*
Alt-J (Had tickets to their after show last year, but someone stole Travis' cell phone so we were too tied up in talking to the police to catch their set)
DIIV*
Wild Nothing*
Angel Haze
Wavves
MS MR


It wouldn't be a bad weekend by any stretch, we'll have to see if I end up with 3-day passes or not. I'm sure by August I'll work something out. For now, tomorrow I buy my $95 safety net.

Curious... what so you have against seeing the same band twice? I'm so torn between The Killers and New Order right now and I'm crossing my fingers for a scheduling miracle. And I've seen The Killers twice.

I don't have anything against seeing the same band twice, where'd you get that impression?

I have a problem with a band headlining a festival for the 3rd time in 8 years. I also have a problem seeing that band again when I just saw them in December if there are other bands I could be seeing.

I've seen the Killers 3 times now. I will see them many more times in my future, but I've seen them twice now at different festivals and I'm really not going to be missing out on much if I don't hit that a third time.

Well I mean you seemed really disappointed with the lineup in general, because you've seen a lot of the acts.

If you filled a lineup with all bands I've seen before I wouldn't be disappointed. I've seen The Airborne Toxic Event 6 times. I'm seeing them 5 more times in a month. I would love for them to play Lolla, but unfortunately they're only on the Coachella lineup.

Although I do understand skipping The Killers in favor of New Order. I'm leaning that way, if that's the case. But I can only do that if we get enough people to go. I wont leave my friend hanging at The Killers by himself. So I might not have a choice if there's only 2 of us.

I wouldn't even see U2 5 times in one month.

Yeah, I am disappointed by how many of the bands on the lineup I've already seen. It just doesn't quite have that same umph. The bigger disappointment was how many of the bands I had already seen at Lolla.




In other news, my mission is to now find a band on Saturday besides the ones already highlighted that is worth seeing...this is hard. Pujol's alright, but Travis pointed out that the lead singer sounds like the guy from Smash Mouth and now I can't unhear it.

I wish I could go to Osheaga

I mean, I guess it's possible. I heard about this new invention the Wright brothers have been kicking around called an "aeroplane"

It's not a for sure thing just yet. I'm not super excited about the lineup, to be honest
