That KOL and Arcade fire are both headlining... after kings of leon called arcade fire a bunch of pretentious dickheads?
All they do is go off about how Arcade fire are assholes backstage...so why are they playing with them again?
Money must be hella good.

Not to mention that I'm not sure playing in the same place on different days amounts to "playing together".

Flaming Lips think they're pretentious pricks.

Kings of Leon just think they're superficial fame whores, they never said anything about the cut of their backstage jib.

hmm maybe i did mix in a few different quotes there.
I think with so many members, someone is bound to be a dick backstage eventually. Not sure why eveyone is hating on them so much lately.

They're playing on different days, it's not that big of a deal.

I can't fault them. Richard especially is all kinds of nice. I'm prone to boring people with stories of how cool they've been to myself and my nerdy friends over the years, but they really have been lovely on every occasion, and and any of their crewpeople I've spoken to thought very highly of them.

I have heard of them driving soundmen crazy though, and I'd like to mention once again what a complete cockjockey their manager is.

EDIT:

They've played previous festivals with the Flaming Lips since, and despite my best efforts, all was well. And Kings of Leon have their blacked out cars and minders to keep the peace and guard their portaloos, I'm sure.

Things are gonna be way tense at the backstage badminton games that all the bands play in together.

I'll bet everybody will bring potato salad to the mandatory midfest Indie picnic, and it'll be reeeeeeeeally awkward.

I think this might be the most posted story on this entire message board.

I don't think you really have a firm grasp on the meaning of word ironic.

Must be a Canadian thing. Alanis Morrisette doesn't get it either. Which is, of course, quite ironic in itself.

I think I might have used that bit before, now that I think of it.
