    Okay, so they announced it.


    Iconic Composer and Performer Terry Riley and son Gyan Riley Join Lineup

    One of the most monumental and influential musical figures of the past century – the composer and performer Terry Riley– will be joining the Moogfest line up this year, presenting a special concert. Although he has chosen to perform mostly acoustic in recent years, Riley will present a rare concert of his legendary electronic keyboard music, including his remarkable "A Rainbow In Curved Air," the visionary work which shaped and inspired the music of Pink Floyd, the Who, and countless others, including fellow Moogfest icons Hans-Joachim Roedelius, Tangerine Dream, and, of course, Brian Eno.

    Riley’s son, the outstanding guitarist, performer and composer Gyan Riley, will also join him in concert. Gyan’s most recent work, Stream of Gratitude, was released on John Zorn's Tzadik label earlier this year.

    For more information go to moogfest.com

    See the current lineup or check out the day schedule at Moogfest.com

    So I really wanna go to this, but I can only go Friday and Saturday. Is anyone else traveling through the Richmond, VA area that is going to this? If so, hit me up.

    Ugh, I just noticed how incredibly convenient it would have been for Portishead to play Moogfest (their last show is 27th in Colorado, and they could have made it for Moogfest).

    But i guess being exclusive to the ATP Festival halted that.

    But they would have been perfect for this fest! Plus, it would have been their southern gig.

    Looking for some info from people who went last year

    1) How often was a venue at capacity? How long did you have to wait?
    2) How long does it take to get through security at each venue?
    3) What about walking distance from one venue to another? are there cabs or trolleys or shuttles?
    4) Any suggestions for food?

    1. The only times I saw a venue at capacity was for Four Tet and Bonobo. Four Tet was at the Orange Peel and we got there right at/maybe a little after his starting time. Bonobo was in the tiny Moogaplex which is just a conference room in a hotel. (I had a pass so I just walked in for Bonobo, but I don't think I was getting in otherwise. Just turned around and saw something else for Four Tet; the line was pretty crazy.)
    2. Not long for the TWA/Civic Center, but the security at the Orange Peel is historically a bitch. I have never had a pleasant experience with the security there. In fact, the security as a whole last year, even at the two main venues was pretty overzealous.
    3. The furthest you will have to walk is to the Orange Peel, as most of the other venues are only a few blocks away in any given direction. Even that walk is 10-15 minutes, tops.
    4. Tupelo Honey Cafe & Over Easy for breakfast, for sure. I had a really good quail at Lexington Avenue Brewery last year, and enjoyed a really great IPA of theirs as well.

    God I can't wait to be back in Asheville. Who's pumped?!

    FYI: If anyone is looking for lodging, I canceled two private pods @ Sweet Pea Hostel, due to friends bailing out. It runs about $35 a night and its located in Downtown Asheville.

    Wow was it? I was at Thievery. I am surprised that place filled up.

    Amon Tobin is going to blow minds. I am personally beyond excited about finally seeing FlyLo too. And The Field. And M83. And..yeah. All of it.

    The correct answer is Suicide.

    Seriously, anyone who skips them should have their Coachella credentials taken.

    I enjoyed seeing them at Primavera, but apparently a lot of people didn't. Looks like they clash with St. Vincent, and I have to say that St. Vincent is the better live show. But on the other hand, who knows when Suicide will come around again. I see a bunch of unfortunate conflicts and overlaps.

    It's still owed for who they are though. Just to see a couple of songs (at least Ghost Rider or maybe even Frankie Teardrop if your bold enough). Like Frank said, they won't be around for much longer. Alan Vega is in his 70s.

    Thank you, Mr. Dylanja. I will hopefully have some time to sift through the rest and get a photo album together, so I will post a link here whenever I do if you'd like.
