    This isn't the complete lineup or anything. It Takes A Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back is sweet though.

    That is a lovely lineup, I hope Public Enemy takes that performance on the road this year.

    That PE performance might be real damn good. I say might be because they seem to have forgotten how to relay a powerful message in the past decade but that album right there is tight!

    Do we know if this is an electric or acoustic Spiritualized show? If it's electric, I might have to hit this up.

    I got the Pitchfork e-mail this morning. They addressed me as "dear friend" which made me feel all warm and fuzzy.

    I want to go to this. And it's $65 for a three day pass! So much win. Tickets go on sale Wednesday.

    Boris.

    If they aren't playing SF in the near future, I will go to this. Because Spiritualized is the same day, and that is totally sweet.

    I've considered attending since this thing's been around, but I can never find the time or money to go. I want to go this year soooo bad though.

    I'm so fuckin' there. Best run fest in the US. Water's a dollar, you can see every band pretty much, and the people there were all awesome. I prefer Coachella overall, but this one's special. Seeing Spiritualized (that'll be electric too, they said this is around when the Electric Mainlines tour will start) and Boris on the same day will be one of those things you can't do too often.

    Last year it cost me 200 round trip, plus 25 dollars a night for a really nice (no bugs, comfortable beds and private bathrooms) hostel. One of the best trips I've ever done.

    They were disappointing at Vegoose. Late to start and wasted too much time on their 'fuck bush' rants. Yeah, we know, we all hate the guy BUT PLAY YOUR DAMN SONGS.

    Hrmmm... Perhaps. I'd probably do this over Lolla anyway.

    I think I'm just going to buy tickets, because it ought to work out no problem. Especially if I know at least one other person willing to go.

    Hey bmack, do you remember the name of the hostel you stayed at? Was it close to the venue?

    it was the Hostelling international one in the loop. It's not overly close to the venue, but you can the the L, and there's a stop one block away from both the Hostel and the venue. It works like magic.

    I'd also recommend flying into O'Hare. Transportation to and from there is insanely easy.

    hmm...I can get roundtrip flight for ~$286 and at ~$25 a night that's about $400. With a 3-day pass coating ~$60 bucks I could do it for ~$500. All I would need is money for food and booze. I need to start saving.
