Jesus... Voting on a Yo La Tengo setlist....
Last year was fun despite the insane humidity. I may go this year depending on the line up, it’s starting to look good already.
Meh. Unless some other bands I really like are added, I don't think I'll be going like I thought I was. Only Grizzly Bear and TPOBPAH are drawing me at this point.
Just remember, every year they roll out more and more until it's nigh impossible to pass up. If Grizzly Bear and the National are headlining, I'd be surprised but also happy.
Anyone else who buys tickets, please, please, please help me out by voting for Sudden Organ by Yo La Tengo. And Boilermaker by the Jesus Lizard.
I don't dislike any of these bands, except The National and Vivian Girls, it's just that I don't really care much about most. Except Grizzly Bear, but they are playing LA. So yeah, no Portishead = no pitchfork for me this year.
8/20 SISU and Tanlines @ Sayers Club, 8/21 The Zombies @ Santa Monica Pier, 8/23-24 FYF Fest, 9/10 Swans @ Roxy, 9/18 Neutral Milk Hotel & Daniel Johnston @ Hollywood Bowl, 9/19 Tokimonsta @ El Rey, 9/30 Cibo Matto @ the Roxy, 10/3-4 Desert Stars, 10/9 Zola Jesus @ El Rey, 10/16 Massive Attack @ Greek Theater, 10/22-25 CMJ, 10/26 Asobi Seksu & Slowdive @ Royale
Yo La Tengo! I really can't afford to travel anymore this summer, but this is so tempting.
definitely going. if you have a megabus stop near you that goes to chicago you can get a ticket for a dollar.
me +1. Need to get a room ASAP.
I think the official announcement next week will have a few more bands.
There'll be hipster dance stuff for sure. It's been there every year.
I'm hoping I can make this work. I'm already going to New Zealand and I'm paying for Law School next year. It'll probably depend on if I can get substitute teaching jobs once I pass the CBEST.
If I can talk my friend into going to this I may be there. His mom was laid off from delta after 911 so to comp her they give her ample amounts of buddy passes. I flew to NYC to see Pearl Jam for like $75 round trip. IF I GO, would anyone be interested in sharing a hotel room, depending on how much they cost?
Yeah. I'll probably go to this unless complete disaster strikes. Even if I'm totally broke, Megabus is $1 from Cleveland if I plan far enough ahead and one of my best friends lives in the city. Fucking Jesus Lizard.
TORTOISE!! The National! I love Pitchfork! I will be there, easy drive, free place to stay, cheap festival tickets. The only festival I can attend for under $100. I've been every year and have always had a blast!
And what's the deal with Jesus Lizard? I'm betting they're worth checking out, I have heard their name but know very little...
I'm trying to decide on the songs I want to vote for for this. This is going to be really, really fun though.
My favorite Tortoise song is one of their more famous songs, TNT, but they actually don't play it live at all of their shows... so I'm thinking I'll just vote for that. But I also have to hear Djed live before I die.
My favorite Yo La Tengo song they wouldn't otherwise play is probably Moby Octopad. I would also kill to hear Pass the Hatchet live. So maybe I should just vote for that one.
As for Jesus Lizard... I'm only really a huge fan of Goat, so anything off of there, but in particular Mouth Breather or Romeo in Joliet. Still getting to their other albums now...
And Built to Spill I'm a pretty casual fan so I don't have much to say there. My favorite song of their's is probably Velvet Waltz.
ugh, im an idiot. i wasn't paying attention and bought tickets for friday instead of 3 day passes.
