Field Day Festival.......un-freakin-believable lineup!

The Field Day Festival is in Calverton, NY, this June 7th and 8th. But don't be scared off by the fact that this music, arts and camping festival is taking place out on Lawn Guyland, because some top-notch acts are scheduled to perform.

We would just hate for your fear of Lizzie Grubman and her ilk keep you from seeing the likes of Radiohead-- in their first (and, as of this moment, only) 2003 U.S. appearance-- Beck, Spiritualized, Interpol, Tortoise, The Beastie Boys, N.E.R.D., Blur, Elliott Smith, and Polyphonic Spree, among others. Nobody asked me, but in my boner-roo opinion, the chance to see Orton, Phair and Sharon Foo of The Raveonettes all in one night is worth the price of admission alone (provided Kleenex are included). Full lineup with the usual "And More" teaser omitted:

June 7th:
Thievery Corporation
Beth Orton
Liz Phair
The Raveonettes
Ben Lee
My Morning Jacket
Gemma Hayes
Trachtenberg Family Slideshow Players

June 8:
The Beastie Boys
Sigur Rs
The Roots
Elliott Smith
Peanut Butter Wolf
The Music
Polyphonic Spree
Le Tigre

Speaking of which, tickets go on sale Good Friday, April 18th, via the regular Ticketmaster channels-- phone, webpage, CD stores (what? People still buy CDs?!). As befitting a great democracy like ours, the event organizers are offering three ticket packages for your indie-lovin' ass: the single-day ticket, the two-day pass, and the two-day pass with camping. It would behoove those interested in attending to buy tickets early because prices will increase as the concert date nears. Prices start at $65, $120 and $150, respectively, though it must be noted that none of those prices reflect the untold hundreds of dollars needed to buy medicine to counteract the VD you'll get hooking up with that dreadlocked drunk chick from Montauk. Hope you like syphillis!

This is an unbelievable lineup.......if anyone is anywhere near this area you better freakin go!

No kidding. I actually considered going to this. Radiohead alone almost warrants it. But, alas, I will be moving out that weekend. Ah well...

I am going! Got my ticket tonight through Radiohead's site. I'm so excited to see Radiohead again! And some of the other acts should be very cool too. Just going on Saturday though, will need Sunday to recover. Not sure how I'm going to get out there, they promise there'll be public transport but no details and I don't drive, but I'll get there and home somehow.

I would make the trip (45 min I think) to see Radiohead and the BBoys, but the rest of the lineup I could do without.

That is only because I am closed-minded though...
