    Good sets last year:

    The Presets
    Hercules and Love Affair
    Bloody Beetroots
    Devo
    STS9
    Shiny Toy Guns
    Peanut Butter Wolf

    Horrible bands I saw last year:
    The Black Kids
    Gogol Bordello

    Don't go all Street Scene on us with Detour now, plz.

    Crappy bands last year:
    I forgot about lots of lame hipster shit

    No Devo or Black Kids last year, In place of the Kids, i think you might mean Black Lips (i thought they were great). Devo? Maybe Datarock's jogging suits made you think of Devo.

    I'm not expecting any info until the end of July because I remember last year the details came out when I was about to get on the plane to return from Pemberton.

    You must be really confused if you thought Devo played last year and Gogol Bordello was horrible.

    Peanut Butter Wolf's projector was all jacked up. That wasn't fun at all.

    All those The Black Plurals are all the same band, anyway.

    Really hoping for Yeah Yeah Yeahs full set as a headliner. Now that would be amazing.

    Or maybe your definition of "fun" as "hopping around like jackasses to some honky pap that sounds exactly the same no matter what song they're playing" is a little inaccurate. This gimmicky bullshit of Gogol Bordello will be over after their next album when all of a sudden everyone realizes that surfing a drum over the crowd doesn't change the fact that they're about as uninteresting as music can get.

    Or no wax in his/her ears.
    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.

    its a guess. But a better guess would be that this isnt even going down this year. I haven't heard anything; dates, artists, rumors...


    has anyone heard ANYTHING!?

    If YYYs are there, I am there, regardless of the rest of the lineup. Pretty Polly Productions quote a 75k figure for them, which is a bargain considering how massively popular and beloved they are.

    I think I was talking about Gogol, but it's so hard to tell with all the garbage these people listen to and I harangue them about.
