    Sklar Brothers and BJ Novak will be cool. I dont know about BJ Novaks standup, but Im in love with anything that has a connection to The Office.

    Maria Bamford is good too. I doubt I will watch any comedian except for Cross though.

    Doubt I'll watch Cross unless there's absolutely nothing else happening at the time. I love everything he's done on TV but I don't care for his stand up.

    What can we expect from Nico's live show? Will it just be him up there behind the laptop / knobs / Roland, or might he possibly add some live instrumentation?

    At the echoplex earlier this year he had a guitarist and a dude playing saxophone accompanying. I didn't think it added much.

    He has 2 other musicians with him on tour. Guitar/keyboardist and Sax/vocal/keyboards. Jaar will be doing everything else. Hopefully his set is at night. It was good at Pitchfork over the weekend, but it being 4pm in the afternoon with a bunch of people talking didnt feel right at all.

    Based on how high he is on the updated lineup, I'd assume he'll play in the evening or night

    Using that logic, we need to push for the Field to be moved up to the second line.

    This is my first FYF so I really dont know. I just recall someone saying that the lineup order is similar to how the scheduling will be. Obviously won't know for sure until a couple days before.

    Hard to say really, since there are several stages and we still don't know how this will be broken up day by day.

    here's the line up poster and subsequent set times from 2011 though, to give you an idea.


    last.fm
    8/23-24/14 FYF Fest - Expo Park //8/25/14 Nine Inch Nails - Hollywood Bowl // 9/6/14 Elvis Costello & Ben Folds - Hollywood Bowl
    9/12-14/14 Riotfest - Humboldt Park, Chicago, IL // 9/18/14 Neutral Milk Hotel - Hollywood Bowl

    You'll notice that line order didn't totally represent set times.

    Yeah you're absolutely right. Nosaj Thing really got a boost. Anticipating so many conflicts!

    Totally doing this!

    There is something very special about making and receiving a mix tape. It takes enough effort to prove that it’s something you care about, and it carries the personality and the emotions of the person who made it in a way that a .ZIP file or Spotify playlist never will. You remember how this works—trying to fit all your favorite songs together in a way so they add up to a story all their own, and learning to use words and music by other people to say something you can’t quite say by yourself. Technology has made it easy to share music now, but sharing a mixtape is another thing entirely.

    So this contest is simple. We want you to make us a mix tape. Pretend that we at FYF are your high school crush and that you are trying to win us over. The only thing we ask is that you are honest with the songs that you pick. Don’t try to impress us or give us what you think we want to hear. (That doesn’t work on crushes either!)

    Show us what you really love. We want to know your guilty pleasures and the songs you sing out loud when you’re alone. We want to hear the songs you’ll never get tired of and the songs that you are gonna be in love with for the rest of your life. This mixtape won’t just be a bunch of songs in a pile—it’ll be you.

    THE RULES ARE SIMPLE!
    • Must be on an actual cassette tape!
    • Must be at least 45 minutes. Do your best not to go over 90 minutes.
    • Be creative with the design! Draw on it, sticker on it, paint on it—whatever!
    • May contain anything you desire! No limits. Music if any kind, of course, but spoken word or instrumentals or soundtrack music and comedy is fine, too!
    • Must come with a track list
    • It does not need to be made on a brand new blank tape. Feel free to
    • Tapes must be postmarked by Thursday, Aug. 16.

    Mail tapes to:
    FYF Fest
    PO BOX 1558
    Torrance, CA 90505

    • The winners will be picked by the FYF crew based on originality, selection, awesomeness and overall charm.
    • Winners will be announced on Monday, August 20.
    • The GRAND PRIZE winner will receive five (5) VIP tickets to FYF Fest 2012 and $500 spending cash. But that’s not all! They will also go on KXLU 88.9 FM to play their mix tape on the air and talk about it. This will be a lot of fun! And we will play the grand prize mixtape between bands on the main stage at FYF Fest.
    • Three RUNNER UPs will each receive four (4) Weekend Passes to FYF Fest!

    9/2 Alt-J @ LPR
    9/3 Sun Araw/Man Forever @ BA
    9/4 DJ Shadow @ Irving Plaza
    9/5 Stacey Pullen/Octave One @ Verboten
    9/6 Evian Christ/Forest Swords @ PS1
    9/6 Seth Troxler @ Output

    I've got a tape deck. I guarantee Jared does as well, and I'd highly wager Kyle does.
