    Are the bands that play FYF unlikely to play Treasure Island?
    We're here to play some Mississippi Delta Blues. We're in a horrible depression, and I gotta admit - we're starting to like it.

    That makes it look like they could start the California leg with TIMF!
    Worst name ever but incredibly fun live show. I hope they play.

    If they play SF before or after, sure.

    Looks like The Shins are out. They're playing Harmony By The Bay on September 29 at the Shoreline.

    Tegan and Sara have already played TIMF in 2008, so they wouldn't have been in the running to begin with. And The Shins suck live? I personally disagree, I think they were pretty awesome at both OSL 2011 and Coachella 2012, the sound at Coachella was definitely better, probably because it was pretty windy at OSL.

    That SMD December tour is crying out for a friday, 12/1 show in LA. Would-be 3 mos gap btw LA shows seems more plausible than would-be 1.5 mos gap btw SF shows.
    SMD live will be at FYFest so they have LA covered, even if they don't make another appearance.

    and vasoline groove, the don't play Live ever three months, but they do seem to have plenty of DJ sets, which are pretty different from their live shows and not as special in my opinion.

    Yeah, I wasn't making a distinction between their live or dj sets, but it does seem like they are in SF every three months which I always thought was odd. I'll have to make it to one of their shows eventually, but it sounds like I need to go to a live one.

    And I didn't like the Shins OSL performance but maybe that was because I was in the back where it just didn't sound good. But I saw them at Vegoose and it was a rather emotionless experience. Either way I really did not need to see them at TI.

    Are we assuming that TI is still not going to have repeats?

    SMD have really good live shows! And its always a really good mix of their discography.

    I was pretty close up and a bit left of the stage for The Shins at OSL, and every now and then the wind would carry off the sound but for the most part it was good. I was close enough to make out some of James Mercer's facial expressions!

    We are still under the assumption that TIMF will not repeat acts. They haven't repeated acts yet, and I doubt they would start now, but you never know.

    And right as I hit submit reply, TIMF announced "JUNE 26!"

    I guess we only have a couple more days of this guessing game :P

    Well, that puts to bed any doubts as to whether or not they would headline. Only question that remains is, which day?

    Edit: Amateur hour on their fbook page. "XX" changed to "X"? Lulz.

    Does TI have that sort of budget?

    Jamie xx DJ set would be nice.

    The xx are playing the Fonda in Los Angeles in July (capacity under 1,000); the last couple years, Explosions and LCD were headliners after playing the Palladium (capacity 4,000). How does the xx headlining TI make sense again? Are they significantly bigger in SF than LA?

    The xx are only playing the Fonda as a small show to play out the new material. It sold out instantly.

    They would be so great there! Although I am kinda hoping for a club date as I doubt I will want to go this year on Saturday.

    If anyone will be in the East Bay tomorrow evening, Noise Pop has a pair of tickets to TIMF 2012 that they are giving away, so long as you RSVP to their Record Collective and are there in person when they announce the winner at 8pm... http://do415.com/event/2012/06/26/no...ctive-east-bay

    Also, YAY! for The Presets, I missed them at Coachella in 2011 and heard they put on an amazing show, really excited to be able to see them, and at TIMF no less!
