    what time of day do the headliners end?
    Lick an orange, it tastes like an orange. Lick a pineapple, it tastes like a pineapple. Go ahead, try it. Try some more. The strawberries taste like strawberries. The snozzberries taste like snozzberries! We are the music makers, and we are the dreamers of dreams. Come along, come along.

    Sold out except for Wilco Friday night. And that will sell out soon enough.


    Anybody else is trekking to the Ocean State?

    I'm in, though it's not a far trip for me. I'm also in for the Friday night Wilco/BT/Megafaun show. Really great lineup this year - MMJ, Iron & Wine, Conor Oberst, the Head & the Heart, Punch Brothers, Deer Tick, Tallest Man on Earth, Trampled by Turtles, Gary Clark, Of Monsters and Men, Preservation Hall, Alabama Shakes, New Multitudes, Deep Dark Woods, Sharon van Etten, First Aid Kit, and Charles Bradley are all must-sees for me (and yeah, I realize that's like 75% of the lineup).

    I'll be interested to see what the schedule looks like when it comes out. I have a feeling that Alabama Shakes will be occupying a schedule slot well above where you'd expect to find them given their location on the lineup. They are blowing up in a major way.

    Anybody else going to Wilco Friday night?

    Pre-game meet-up for a few 'Gansetts?

    I don't know the local spots but am coming in early and will make the effort if someone names a venue.
