    This is nice. I would go to this. Alejandro Escovedo a big plus.

    Don't understand ignoring The Dive Poets though, they're probably St Louis' best band right now.

    I somehow missed this thread last year.

    I am very impressed with the improvement of the lineup this year. It's way more diverse.

    I had a ton of fun last year - it was well run and it was overall a good vibe. I would recommend it to those of you that it is convenient for.

    A better lineup than last year's, and a pretty good bargain too.

    (didn't go last year, probably won't go this year)
    We're here to play some Mississippi Delta Blues. We're in a horrible depression, and I gotta admit - we're starting to like it.

    I'd totally go to that, if I still lived in St. Louis. TV on the Radio and The Roots alone - definitely worth my time and pesos.

    so, yeah, of the three people in Missouri here, any of you going this weekend? I will be there. For me, !!!, Hold Steady, Deerhunter and TVOTR are fantastic draws. Not to mention Kings Go Forth, Dom and Surfer Blood and a couple friends in local bands that are playing, too.

    Ugh, that sucks. I had thought about going up there for the day to see them and Deerhunter and to hang out with friends.

    The best part has been the St. Louis press coverage of the event referring to the "little-known" and "edgy indie act" TV On the Radio.

    From the RFT:
    Still, there's no question, absent the Roots, that TV on the Radio is the biggest deal in the lineup and it draws the biggest crowd

    What a disappointment. I'm sure the FLips and Girl Talk will pull in a crowd, but I was hoping for Modest Mouse or some other mid-level band that doesn't play every festival. Dino Jr is cool though.

    Agreed... I was hoping for better, because last year was pretty fun. Dino Jr is probably what I'm looking forward to most at this point. I can't believe they are on the same line as Phantogram and listed below Girl Talk.
    2/21 - Skinny Puppy
    5/23-25 - Summer Camp
    7/18-20 - Pitchfork Music Festival
    8/1-3 - Lollapalooza

    So this is happening this weekend. The Bro-down begins. I have been getting excited. Dino Jr, Flips, Phantogram, Dr. Dog, Little Barrie and Cotton Mather should be good. And Girl Talk will bring the dancing and drinking and whatnot. Son Volt is a solid, if unexciting, live act. Cults.

    Cults are just OK live.

    There is a slim chance I might be there tomorrow.

    Is Phantogram any good live? I really like their albums, but could see them not so great live.
