    After seeing James Blake at pyramid lakes this passed weekend, it would be pretty great to see him at treasure island. It would be gorgeous.

    Saturday looks way out of character. Don't think I buy it.

    Doesn't seem so to me w/ the exception of Feed Me. What other Sat acts stand out as unusual?

    NO. This festival has done a bang-up job of avoiding the "EDM" stuff. No reason to mess up a good thing.

    Avoiding EDM stuff? You mean like Justice, Deadmau5, Kruder & Dorfmeister, Four Tet, MSTRKRFT, LTJ Bukem, Flying Lotus, Buraka Son Systema, etc...

    EDM is now the catch-all term du jour for the Avicii's of the world, in many quarters (see e.g. http://mnmlssg.blogspot.com/2012/04/...m-matters.html)

    Not my term but intended it here as a rough umbrella.

    Nothing on that list, bar maybe Deadmau5, really falls underneath.

    Metric is kind of unusual for Saturday. They aren't really electropop/synthpop ala The Naked And The Famous, Passion Pit, Cut Copy, LCD Soundsystem, Miike Snow, Hot Chip. Seem more like a Sunday act IMO. Also Metric is playing ACL which suggest they won't likely be at TI Fest at all.

    Fair enough re: Metric. Then again, Sunday had Friendly Fires last year.

    If db really does have Orbital, I'd say that makes a TI appearance very possible. Fingers crossed.

    Very true. I thought Friendly Fires should have been a Saturday act also. I guess there isn't a set guideline but I would think that the headliner/Subs should follow the electronic saturday/indie rock sunday feel.

    I really hope for Orbital! If not TI Fest then put them in the Fox!

    Totally forgot about 09. Was a good year. I think he's out of the picture.

    Metric is on the wrong day, and the XX and The Weeknd both billed that late in the day seem like such a snooze of a day (BPM wise) for a day that is normally so upbeat and fun.

    what about The Horrors? was hoping for them to be at OSL but TI seems to be more likely

    they need to hurry up and announce before we guess the entire lineup like we do every year.

    Lineup has been announced in July the past several years. Wouldn't expect sooner than that.
    *based upon tedious fact checking.

    if these orbital rumors panned out (which I don't expect) I would really really hope for a night show. anything short of a full length set would just leave me wanting more.

    actually I would be impressed if APE had the balls to make orbital the saturday headliner. I don't think that's commercially sound enough for them to try though.

    The Shins just announced fall tour dates with no Bay Area date, a region they also skipped this spring ('cept for Santa Cruz/Davis). They play ACL on 10/13. Also fits the "played OSL last year" profile. Possible Sunday act?

    they're certainly boring enough. I'd say it's very likely.

    Grimes looks likely if songkick's tour dates are accurate.

    Thursday Oct 11th @ Porter's Pub, San Diego
    Monday Oct 15th @ Doug Fir Lounge, Portland

    Windish (very reliable) has the latter date up. I'd say it's looking good for Grimes.

    FWIW, Windish took down the 10/6 John Talabot SF show; the rest of his fall US tour is still up. Not often that they pull a show like that. Perhaps TI moved in to grab him, though that seems unlikely at this late stage.
