    Wow, this really is 2009 and not 2008 anymore. Because if this was 2008, there would already be 15-20 threads about the Fleet Foxes and how amazing they are.
    9/20 - Crosby, Stills & Nash - Santa Barbara Bowl
    9/21 - Caetano Veloso - Hollywood Bowl
    9/26 - William Basinski - Pasadena Arts Council
    9/28 - Bob Mould - Roxy (?)
    10/01 - King Crimson - Orpheum

    Pretty big fan of this idea. Throw Cloud Cult on before FF, just for good measure.

    Oh yeah AYB, you're camping with PAW, right? Good times surely will be had, in and out of said kiddie pool.

    Also, I wish everyone could listen to FF in a winter environment. Perfect music on cold, snowy days.

    It's 59 degrees today.

    FREEZING by Miami standards. I should pop in fleet foxes today then.

    *FF=Franz Ferdinand but it's forgiven since this is the fleet foxes thread

    I'm totally stoked for Fleet Foxes. I saw them last October, and they were brilliant. Not sure how their beards and flannel shirts are going to hold up in the desert, but I'll definitely be there to see.

    Nothing shall stand between me and Robin save a thick gate, girl, or guard.
    imo last year My Morning Jacket took the best sunset performance spot, just ahead of the National.

    Won't be a question this year (assuming Fleet DOES play at sunset). Can't wait to hear that grizzly man's sexy vocals reverberate across the field.

    Alright then. 'tis ON. (i assume u mean competition for proximity to FF & not 'best sunset performance')

    I plan on being close enough to taste the sweet sugar emanating from his voice.


    But we shall see, I'm looking forward to some Saturday's day acts that might challenge my position in the crowd at outdoor stage:
    Gang Gang Dance, Liars, Bloody Beetroots

    of course. Thousands of mutilated limbs and dismembered bodies will make their way to the stage at the moment they cover "Blood & Thunder" by Mastodon.

    yeah now that the hype has subsided, catching these guys should be really enjoyable. i'm predicting this will be one of the more moving, talked-about sets of the weekend..?

    That's pretty typical of the indie scene nowadays. As soon as a band gets any kind of mainstream attention, they're chewed up and spit out by the same hipsters who rode their jocks less than 6 months ago.

    I'm glad there's still people on this board excited about watching them, they're a great band.
