    Hmm...

    This is grade school all over again. We go to class all proud and happy to show off the new M.I.A. doll that Uncle Tollett gave us, and as we step into class, that damn rich kid is playing with the Lou Reed action figure, complete with jet pack and night-vision goggles; we quietly slip M.I.A. to the bottom of our backpack.

    Except we remember we have Paul McCartney, My Bloody Valentine, Throbbing Gristle, and Leonard Cohen in the side pocket, and we all of a sudden feel way cooler again.

    Very true, Erik.

    Although they wouldn't allow Throbbing Gristle action figures at my school. And it's not like the rich kid got the Velvet Underground Dungeon Playset. They stopped making that one.

    i agree. his recent live performances have been horrendously bloated, he can't even play guitar like he used to, always sounds like he has a throat full of gravel
    his live guitar rig is the epitome of overkill...


    i still love him though...

    Yeah I don't get all the complaining Coachella has 2-3 really rare acts every year verse Lolla getting 1 every 2 or 3 years. Not really a contest. And you can't expect Coachella to nab every rare act out there.

    But Lolla has Jane's Addiction (who are touring the entire country) and The Beastie Boys. So obviously, Lolla is way better.

    You fools think Coachella can just book whoever it wants at the snap of a finger? Like there was a whole list of artists that any festival could book and Lolla just nabbed Lou Reed before Coachella did?

    Many of you are way too spoiled. Please shut the fuck up. Thank you.

    Tommy's just mad because Tool hasn't been announced yet so he can make plans to go into debt.

    Maybe Coachella wanted to book Lou Reed and he said no? Maybe Lou Reed isn't available until later in the summer? It's not as easy as "Hey, I want Lou Reed to play my festival. Done." Christ.

    I'm assuming this is a joke but even so, please kindly shut the fuck up. From my travels, I've found a lot more "bros" in Cali than Chicago.

    Also, this came from Perry today:

    quote:

    Farrell wouldn't divulge the names of the other two Lollapalooza headliners, who will join Jane's, the Kings of Leon, the Beastie Boys and Depeche Mode atop the bill August 7-9 at Grant Park in Chicago. Nor was he willing to discuss any of the "100 other groups" apparently confirmed for the fest. But he did hint at an increased electronic presence at Lolla '09 — perhaps he's thinking of reviving his old ENIT festival? — and managed to compare himself to a certain pop-culture pariah in the process. The man truly is a master of the sound bite.
    "We have a lineup in the electronic world that's a who's who of electronic artists, and they don't know anything about that, either," Farrell added. "I kind of feel like Octomom, you know? Getting all this attention. Who cares?"

    Good sign for 6 big names and an increased electronic presence.
