    Default 94/9 Independence Jam

    Apparently 94.9 (an indie radio station in San Diego) is putting on Independence Jam which will feature:

    The Black Keys
    The Yeah Yeah Yeahs
    Metric
    Dead Confederate
    and a bunch of local bands they claim don't suck.

    It's only $30 and they promise no additional fees. Actually seems like it would be worth it. I might have actually found a reason to not hate this place.

    Also the bands should get a long set(at least an hour, except for Dead Conf. who only have one album). The local bands do kinda suck this year.

    yup this show is selling out in 3-4 days for sure. So ridiculous, I remember the Keys show sold out in 2 days when they played the HOB in SD a year ago.

    And the Black Keys' newest album is waaaaay better than the YYY newest album.

    I'm sooooooo excited. Such a great Bonnaroo warmup fest.

    I'll probably be up front for Dead Confederate --> Metric --> YYYs and then watch Black Keys from the bleachers, depending on how intense the crowd is, which is likely to be quite so.

    I would disagree Tall, YYY's new album is pretty damn good. You can't really compare the 2 because they are very different sounds.

    I'm not even going to get into this YYYs vs Black Keys thing, to avoid flipping a bitch, but I was really surprised to see them billed first, especially considering how much more the Yeahs have been played on this very station in the last 8 years...

    True. I thought despite the backlash for the glossy production, the Black Keys' album was the best of last year. Followed closely by Portishead's album.

    BTW, LA radio stations unashamedly have ripped off FM 94.9 for years. Anyone who lives in LA who listens to 100.3 "The Sound"..."it's all about the music." Where from the beginning 94.9 said "it's about the music".

    Indie 103.1 miraculously came up with "Big Sonic Heaven" when 94.9 had "Big Sonic Chill" years ahead of time.

    Why don't they book some actually GOOD local bands? We do have some here. I'm looking at you, The Soft Pack and A Beautiful Noise.

    I lived in San Diego for 8 years...just out of curiousity, what do people think of John Reis and his multiple bands these days? I always thought he was decent, he seemed like the king of the SD rock scene who never got big nationally.

    No Age was Top 5 of the weekend for me by a long shot. Incredible energy, especially up front.
