    Can't wait to hear The Crane Wife Pt 2+3 live...

    I've also heard rave reviews of Air's performance a couple years ago...depending on time slot I'll try to get over there

    JAMC....When I saw it written like this, it made me think of a Death Cab lyric from We Looked Like Giants:

    "Do you remember the JAMC?"

    It's one of the last lines before the instrumental section near the end. I never really knew what it referred to. I assume it's Jesus and Mary Chain?

    friday:

    1.JAMC


    saturday:

    1. LCD Soundsystem
    2. Arcade Fire
    3. !!!
    4. Pop Levi (just heard them today, I like.)

    sunday:

    1. Happy Mondays
    2. Cornelius
    3. Spank Rock
    4. Klaxons



    There are so many artists I am unfamiliar with but I intend on doing my homework. Today I checked out Pop Levi , Ratatat, Peeping Tom and The Noisettes and liked what I heard. So far I am depressed about the Sahara tent though. So far Justice seems like.. "hi we're Christian Daft Punk" without the light show.

    I don't think I have any conflict-be-damned acts this year, except maybe Spank Rock and Ghostface. Most of the people who would have been conflict-be-damned I've seen already (often at Coachella), so as much as I want to see, say, Air, it won't kill me if I don't because I just saw them a few years ago.
