The Roots are the only band on it at the moment...but it has potential...and philly isn't so far from me.
initial lineup...Not terrible...supposed to be around 40 acts...this is only 16...that's a pretty weak # for an initial lineup
FRIDAY, POPPED!'s Opening Night Party:
White T's & White Belts
Special Performance by Slick Rick with Live Band!
Mates of State
Hoots & Hellmouth
The Ting Tings
Daniel Johnston with The Capitol Years
What happened to night one being curated by The Roots? Swore Little Brother was on the bill as well..
Up Next: Cobra Starship, Gogol Bordello, Talib Kweli & Jean Grae
I'm going to the Friday show...Finally, after missing them SIX times, I get to see Mates of State live.
The way this and Treasure Island have been booked... Vampire Weekend would have sub-headlined at Coachella this year if they'd been booked on Sunday. WTF...
That being said, I was hoping that this would be more... hip-hop oriented. Kinda disappointed, but there's no way I would have been able to go in the first place.
