Pretty good article regarding the Drive Like Jehu reunion: http://www.utsandiego.com/news/2014/aug/19/drive-like-jehu-reuniting-after-nineteen-years/
I love the Casbah. Been there a ton of times (FlyLo (recently) and Jagwar Ma (coming up)). Good crowds and energy and they get some really good bands to go through. My only *minor* gripe is that the...
Rimac is the worst. It's a basketball court with bad acoustics. Soma is pretty bad too.
Balboa Theater, SDSU Open Air Theater, and Belly Up are the best games in town.
My first show was at...
Petco Park (San Diego)
Sun, Sept 28
How's this possible if they're playing at the Irenic in San Diego on the same night?
Casbah shows start late. Doors 830, opener ~930 (if not later), headliner ~1030. You can leave at 7pm and make it by 930 easy.
Do you have a link for that? The current sign up bonus is 40k points after $3k spend (I got the plat a month ago). https://www304.americanexpress.com/credit-card/platinum There was a 100k point sign...

Whoa. Did you guys know about Jagwar Ma @ the Casbah in August? Didn't see any announcements.
Wed, August 6 @ the Casbah.
Dammit same day as Arctic Monkeys. Think I can double dip, since...
coachella 2015 pre-sale cluster v2.0
wait ... why even bother, i'm going on reddit
Thanks for the info.
Will-call was a cluster in 2012. At least a 45 min wait and that was showing up at 12.
Think I'll do it online just to avoid the will-call line and having to drive to the...
Tune-Yards @ the Irenic
Wed, June 4
Tickets on sale now: https://casbah.frontgatetickets.com/event/hp6rqjldelwruo6p
The Irenic is a fine venue. Was just there for Kishi Bashi (and of Montreal...
What if you live in a house with roommates?
Line getting in this year was fine. Didn't wait more than 10 minutes. But most of the lag is due to the pat downs and bag checks.
I admit, it'll be quite a bit and annoying for festival-goers. But Ticketmaster's Ticketless system is pretty efficient and fast. The only real additional task is to install the wristband on the...
I really like Glastonbury's system of pre-registering with a passport-style photo and upon entering the festival grounds they check your ticket which has your picture printed on it. Then, if...
shuttle packages still available for W1
DIRECT LINK FOR WEEKEND 1 SHUTTLE PACAKGE!!!!!!
I think anyone who's gotten into W1, can go back and buy more by hitting the back button in their browser.
I was able to do it for W2, at least.
Would be much obliged if someone who's gotten into W1 can help me with purchasing W1 tickets. Please PM me. Thanks.
ticketmaster has gotten smart, they force you to use a citi CC or amex CC (when it's an amex presale) now
don't know about ticketfly
They call em wellies in the UK.
You can buy them at Glastonbury. Yes, it'll be a little pricey, but maybe you won't need them at all like last year.
Or bring em from home. London can be a little...
Let the Radiohead surprise set rumors at Park Stage begin.
Metallica confirmed as Saturday headliner.
Park stage looks solid.
Mogwai, James Blake, Four Tet, St Vincent, Parquet Courts, Jagwar Ma. And it's nice up there.
Future Islands @ the Irenic (San Diego) Friday, august 22.
Tix on sale this Friday.
Looks like a lock for FYF
GA Pit, Citi Presale, is ticketless only.
Seated sections are hard tickets.
I didn't hear any yelling (only yelling between songs) -- we were pretty front and center. Thought the crowd was pretty well-behaved for the most part -- stayed quiet during the quiet parts. But...
new tally. top 10 didn't change. but sexy graph has been added (this time it looks right).
arcade fire 60
jagwar ma 20
the knife 16
tally so far (only counting the lists above this post)
arcade fire 48
Belly Up show was the show of the year (so far) for me. Incredible. Cannot describe how good it was.
Shuttles were fine for us. Tried the shuttles twice. Once from La Quinta and another from Tennis Garden.
Tennis Garden is the way to go. Non-existent lines and it's a shorter walk once you arrive...
btw .. they limited the D*face to one per person (wrote down the person's name and had them sign and wrote down the SN they got on a sheet of paper). even had a separate line just for the D*face...
yes, the posters easily fit into a large locker
Thanks for the rips!
BTW, does anyone know why torrents from dimeadozen are so slow? I've had uTorrent up for a week trying to download Spiritualized (Ace) and Neil Young (Dolby) and it hasn't...
Future Islands (best of weekend)
STRFKR (surprised no mentions ... they were incredible)
Terrace was awesome.
Salt & Straw ice cream was our favorite food. Went there 3 times over the weekend.
-- Almond Toffee (my favorite)
-- Strawberry Balsamic
-- Bourbon/olive oil
bird was there
I actually enjoyed the Coachella set more than the Pomona show.
I was pit for the Pomona show and about 30 ft from rail (center) for the Coachella show. The sound was a lot better at Coachella.
Looking to arrive early Friday and buy merch and be done with it. But with 100+ bands, there's no way to fit all the merch under one tent, right? I'm wondering if the undercards have merch available...
Belly Up just released a few more Cage the Elephant tickets. They'll probably be gone by the time anyone reads this. ...
Volunteer opportunity for free admission just opened up (and going fast). Not sure if you have to be a UK resident:
Looks great! Can you tell who the artist is?
Was at the SD show and didn't see any posters (got there early too).
Love Lake Cahuilla:
-- fire pits
-- shorter shower lines
-- no flood lights 24/7
-- tents are spaced out many, many feet apart, rather than inches
-- electrical outlets
-- 6 miles from the fest...
Robyn + Röyksopp presale NOW:
SF and Boston only: ...
By the way, there were tickets available at the box office at last night's Neil Young show, too. Worth every penny and you'll probably save some money by avoiding Ticketmaster.
I think there are...
And while you're listening to the vinyl, why not enjoy a cup of joe -- custom designed by Mr. Murphy himself.
He corroborated with a well known roaster based out of Bay Area, Blue Bottle, to design...
