    Default Street Scene 07

    Either I'm the only So Cal./San Diego person on the board anticipating Street Scene, or there just really hasn't been any news on the 2 day festival, but seriously... I'm still irritated over missing the Pixies 2 years ago when they played it... And last year's Street Scene was nothing to boast about (it was Coachella-lite... with a half-dozen other bands beyond their prime tacked on) so, any guesses towards who will be playing this year?

    I'm kinda hoping that Gnarls Barkley play it, since it's one of the festivals they missed last year, but I'm getting the vibe that at least one of the Coachella headliners will play Street Scene, and since Rage would probably consider hitting LA a higher priority, and since Bjork is just... Well... Bjork... I think the Chilis will headline the first night of Street Scene (which they didnt do last year because they were headlining Lollapalooza). But of course, this is just baseless speculation on my behalf, what do you think?

    Move Street Scene back to the streets and out of the Qualcomm parking lot and I'm there.

    Do you think that the Gaslamp (or where I think it was being held before) has the capacity for another Street Scene?

    They would need more space than just the Gaslamp alone. SD is a big city though, I'm sure there are several palces to put on a show like Street Scene. Maybe Balboa Park.

    Eh... Possibly, unfortunately, as big as Balboa Park strikes me, there just doesnt seem to be anywhere on the Park itself where there's a huge enough amount of space to mount a stage without placing a stage right smack in the middle of Park Blvd. and closing down the street itself for a few days.

    I know that seems logical, but it seems along longer than it is wider, and I think that'd be a considerable problem...

    I think the Parking Lot location really pushed alot of people away from the event, so hopefully a new venue choice will bring alot of people back, that and some vintage acts like... possibly the Smashing Pumpkins. ^^;

    Sorry to hear you missed out on the Pixies, they were absolutely incredible, worth the price of the entire weekend by themselves. I'm not a big fan of their new location at Qualcomm, but what can I do? I still have to go every year......

    Considering Street Scene seems to like bringing back bands I wouldn't be surprised to see The White Stripes headline a day, new cd coming out "as soon as possible". I'll put money down on NIN headlining the other day though and if that's the case they'll probably bring back QOTSA and have them play before NIN. Last year was a stinker of a fest, but 2005 was great so we'll see what they do this year.

    I got yelled at by a guy who didn't want me to clap durring the White Stripes set. He said that singing along was ok just not clapping. Needless to say I didn't stop and all my freinds berated him untill he left.

    I bet Stephen Marley will be there, San Diego's big on raggae and Street Scene needs a Raggae act every year I bet this will be the one.

    That's odd. I was clapping my ass off during their Street Scene set--during the songs. I really like the rhythm, and I had to clap. They did a REALLY good set at Street Scene, even if the crowd wasn't as into it.

    the strange-yet-sensible-in-a-marketing-sense-thing is that details for Street Scene arent usually announced until just after Coachella wraps. =/

    Rage can headline a day since they have no shows planned and I find it odd. Also I thought about Lolla also and Rage could p[lay there since the midwest is getting RATM love.... And yeah I might snag up those $30 pre sale tix though just in case....

    I CAN ESCAPE THIS ROOM IF A DAMN WELL WANTED TO...

    The ninjas holding me hostage have NOTHING to do with my decision to stay in my room with my small door...

    Maybe Radiohead will headline...

    They need to change the dates so they dont have to compete with Lolla for bands, the parking lot thing doesn't bother me that much.

    No clue, and it used to be later in August too. I have no idea why the bumped it up. Festivals should not have to compete that much for bands. I mean if Street Scene is a week after Lolla it works better into bands schedules for a tour heading out west. But noooo, they think they can keep up with the big boys. First thing is to fix how the venue is set up.

    is there even going to be a street scene? I haven't heard a thing about it and I know they had a disspointing turn out last year, but it may have been offset by the increase in ticket prices and they got money back from MCR because they didn't show up...hmmm wouldn't be that surprised if they show up.

    There will be a Street Scene, kind of no way there isnt. It would be a major thing if it was cancelled and stuff since its been going on for years longer than Coachella has.

    they discussed maybe moving it to Balboa Park, but area residents nixed the idea (all them "damn kids and their sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll")

    but yeah, it was a lot better downtown....all that pavement at qualcomm is no fun......maybe fiesta island?
