Sold out, again.
I feel like I've read that this year's location has a smaller capacity than last year's, but I can't find any of that sort of information. Yo Bumblebee, where you at?
Give 'em the Pixies treatment and let them play a surprise set earlier in the day than they would normally be booked. We can argue (and certainly will) about whether or not they suck, but blink has...
Listening to the Bleachers LP, I can't help but think how perfect a match this would make with an afternoon set in the Mojave.
Yeah. I'm definitely more a Cloud Nothings person, but they brought more to the show than Dylan and his buds.
I mighta listened to it like ten times already.
Anyone else at Cloud Nothings tonight? Couldn't decide if the sound was off or the band was sloppy.
We dressed up for Arcade Fire at the Palladium last Halloween, anyway.
It is weird that they're hitting Santa Ana and Vegas without visiting Los Angeles proper. 100% hoping they show up in August.
This lineup is so stupidly good. I just keep on thinking of bands and being like "Oh yeah, is Boris playing?" "Slint's on the lineup too, right?" It's so stacked I can't even remember all the...
Got an extra ticket for Fuck Buttons tonight up for grabs. Message me ASAP if you're interested.
Yeah, at this point I'd say Phantogram is at least as popular as Broken Bells.
Saw Mark Kozelek last year and enjoyed it, despite me not being that into concerts with just one dude on guitar. Does anyone know if this concert being under the Sun Kil Moon moniker means it'll...
I'm thinking of making the drive for Cut Copy as well. Anyone know of a good, secret spot on / near the Strip to stay?
Makes Bottle Rock look like Primavera.
What in the fucking Fuck.
I was just thinking about this would make sense. It's too damn early to start talking 2015 lineup, but he's been pretty tour and festival friendly the past couple of years, and enough time will have...
Yes, and I am for this. The subheadliners did a lot to alter this year's turnout.
I cannot tell if this is sarcasm but I really hope it isn't.
I just hope it's worth the wait. Following up their 2013 lineup was already a daunting task, holding out on us like this is only driving anticipation even more.
It's not like FYF would never book a band that sounds like the National. They just wouldn't book a band that sounds like the National as headliner - they'd go with something more typical of their...
That would bring a lot of credit to theories that the festival will take place at Santa Monica Boulevard when the sun comes up.
They said as recently as May 8th in a FB comment that the announcement would come this week. Doesn't mean their May 15 deadline is 100%, but it does firm it up a bit.
It's pretty widely held that their best album is Perfect from Now On or Keep It Like a Secret. The former is bigger, more casual, and dramatic. The latter is sweeter and catchier, but not quite...
Interpol looks good as well.
The Fonda is a cooler venue, but the area around the Fox can get this cool 90s campus ghost town vibe that makes for a better trip.
Followed by a nice Fonda Theater date in October. Not impossible for FYF, but pretty unlikely.
I want to criticize them for spelling battle as "battle," but I honestly think they may have meant it. I just don't know.
I always told myself I'd see Bredia next time I had an opportunity, even if it meant going to the Roxy. But damn, I don't know if I can stomach that piece of shit Grant one more time.

Apple is sort of freaking out over the iTunes store, which has been a reliable fountain of cash, starting to bring in less money. They probably want an alternative to iTunes Radio that they can rely...
With an eight-day gap between Seattle and San Diego, we could easily get a Staples Center date added later on. Hell, it's not to hard to believe Black Keys could play Made in America and announce...
I love HAIM, but they're not right for FYF. Not far enough in the "Rock" direction for a band that would have to be a subheadliner given their enormous popularity.
The board feels pretty confident it will be around the Coliseum at USC, but we don't have anything official yet.
True, but it was fucking empty when I saw them on the Polo Field. I'm sure they could draw a larger crowd for FYF, but YYYs managed to pack in the Main Stage at Coachella last year with no big crowd...
After seeing the sparse crowd for the Replacements at Weekend One, I have a hard time the Replacements could be a headliner.
If Win Butler is going to start playing the Rockstar behavior, does that mean we're gonna get the Arcade Fire classic stadium rock LP next? ...
Only saw Modest Mouse at W1 last year, but this was my reaction to the set. They had a lot of fun and I had some with them, but it seems like these guys need to be on their own wavelength to...
USC is often considered "Downtown," but I definitely take your point and would agree that, at least that portion of the campus, is more South LA. Really more than anything I just consider that area...
Strokes could definitely headline FYF, but there's no way it's happening this year. Julian Casablancas is going to be too busy with the Voidz.
If you're pathetic like me and refuse to pay for parking unless you absolutely hafta, there's a neighborhood south of Sunset on the other side of Doheny. Not every street will let you park, but the...
A quality set, from what I heard. I left after a few songs because I had just seen them in December and felt like checking out the last part of Muse's set. Definitely a mistake.
I walked in after being blown away by Future Islands, 100% ready to buy their new album. But they didn't have anything from Future Islands.
100% Drive. It will probably take a while to get out of the lot, but it would take longer to get a taxi.
If you're friends want to leave early, tell them they suck and need to stop sucking.

I want to see everyone's bist pics! Here are a few of mine:
