    Woah! Fricking Richie Havens! That would be awesome.

    I would most certainly go to this if I lived near The Bay... jealous.

    That's an amazing line up. Seriously thinking about this one.
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    Gogol Bordello last year was the most wonderful thing I've seen mid-day in the park. There must've been 25,000 people watching their set and every single one of them were on their feet (not sitting on a picnic blanket) and jumping up and down. The scene was unreal compared to some other sets I saw. I felt so fortunate to be part of that experience and it was the best way imaginable to be introduced to that band.

    Care to back that up with something besides a blanket statement? Because he seems like the epitome of awesome.

    I love Steve Martin's movies, his stand out, etc.

    I have watched footage of him playing banjo and I am not really interested because he just plays Banjo and nothing else.

    Oh yeah, COS says these artists were added..

    Check out his Fresh Air interview on NPR. Total douche.

    Plus I don't recall him doing anything worthwhile or funny in ages.

    that show was so hilarious, because there were a few old people who refused to lift there blankets and lawnchairs and coolers and ended up looking confused and trying to protect there shit while punks were getting thrown everywhere. I was in the very front shouting along and getting my body thrown all around at that show too. fucking amazing
