    Default Christmas Present Gone Bad.

    Having Kings of Leon headline, is like getting a present on christmas you really dont care for and wish you could return, but unfortunately you dont have the receipt for it.

    But then you get an awesome Death From Above 1979 wrapped in a tiny package and you are so stoked when you open it up that you forget all about that Kings of Leon you got.

    Personally, I really enjoyed that set.

    Either way, The Chems vs. KoL is a wonderful conflict

    On the topic of Christmas presents, it would be the greatest gift if Goldenvoice swapped KOL with Kanye.

    And the '09 Chems set was torturous enough I had to leave halfway through. I will add however that I saw them perform a live set in SF I believe in '08 and that was incredible. I'm sure this year will be a live set and incredible again.

    While this lineup may indicate otherwise, Goldenvoice is not MR.
    They won't "force" anyone to see KoL. There will be a great alternative.

    THIS. Kanye is a performer - why give him a shorter set on Sunday when everyone is worn out. He'd be better in the Jay-Z slot from last year.

    Even better would be if KOL was on Saturday because I have so many conflicts that day.

    I have personally never liked KOL but this is the music cycle - Become a popular indie band and have the respect of music fans and then you go pop, get played too much, new music doesn't live up to expectations but popularity still lingers and people get annoyed.

    This made me laugh. Isn't that just called a normal headlining slot? If anything, shouldn't it be the Paul McCartney slot?
