    Now will the Arcade Fire headline Bonnaroo as well now? Seems like they're trying to play any festival that they can!

    p.s. I mean they're playing Hyde Park in UK ......what's the capacity at that park like 80,000??? end of June.....

    It is true! Awesooome.

    I very much want to do it, but can anyone recommend a cheap hotel? The one I stayed at for Voodoo (the official hotel of voodoo, think it was a marriot) was too expensive and i dont want to do that again.

    Hell yeah!, Mystikal bumpin in the parking lot, Mystikal in the streets, Mystikal in the festival. I have Never Not heard someone jamin Mystikal in the quarter. It's expected along with walking through dumpster juice.

    I will probably skip most of this. Jazzfest is not what it used to be as an experience.

    Oh shit oh shit! Willie Nelson! Finally, my chance to see him.

    Koryp is pretty much the authority around here on New Orleans shows. I'm sure he'll be in here soon enough to contribute.

    Edit: Damn, kory You beat me.

    Any place under 130 is a steal during Jazzfest. What was once a wild local music festival with very few rules, has become a nightmare of tourist.

    It looks like they're going to be in Europe during Bonnaroo, so I think they're out in that regard.

    Hyde Park's capacity is capped anywhere between 30,000 and 80,000 depending on the act, as far as I know.

    I'll have to see if one of the weekends is worthwhile. If all 7 of the acts I want to see are in one weekend, then maybe.

    They don't usually try. Most of this has been on NOLA.com in bits and pieces for the last few months. When we catch any of Jazzfest these days, we usually just pay our 50 bucks for a one day pass, watch one or two sets, then leave. There are usually better shows going on around the city at night that aren't as crowded with people acting like they think they are supposed to act in New Orleans.

    eh. If I have to pay 130+ per night I may just to see if Arcade Fire and the Strokes have Texas dates around this and go to those. Those are the main two I want to see (Would say Wilco but I don't think I could do Thursday night anyway)

    A truer statement has never been typed.

    Wait, don't most of the acts end around 7? At least, thats what i remembered from last years schedule

    If thats the case I could drive back Saturday night right after the fest and that'd only be one day in a hotel. I could probably pull that off.

    If you are driving, you can find a deal within 30 minutes of the city for around $60-70. Check out Laplace, Slidell, or Covington hotels. Parking is however worse than the Polo grounds, so plan accordingly.

    Metarie and Kenner will also have inflated rates and offer little time savings due to the traffic. Mandeville/Covington=same damn thing. Westbank for NOLA=Compton for L.A. I like this guy, I won't steer him into a being a statistic.

    Alright, I might can do that. I wouldn't mind being 30 minutes out. It'd probably only be for Friday night because I figure I'd drive back Saturday night

    Parking I guess I'd just have to deal with and figure out something when I get there

    I kind of figured most of that. But, I knew you'd know for sure.

    Holla at a brotha when you get settled in and Erica and I will join you for a show somewhere. HOB has been pretty good lately. Frenchman has been off the chain.

    What in the fuck are Bon Jovi and Kid Rock doing on that lineup? I don't remember them booking anything that bad before.

    Widespread Panic and Pearl Jam are as bad as Kid Rock and Bon Jovi? Yeah, no. Not even remotely close. One of the best shows I saw last year was Pearl Jam.
