    So glad they demolished that god awful Gibson Amp for Harry Potter and moving this thing to the Shrine. Much better venue. Night 2 prob be pretty good and stacked enough to put up w/ that horrible kroq crowd. Assuming they'll bring the rotating stage?

    The rotating stage will most likely be there. From the few 1998 pix on http://kroq.cbslocal.com/photo-galle...hristmas-1998/ (the one w/ Dave G. shows rounded platform on stage) looks like they used it when they had Almost Acoustic in the Shrine.

    I remember listening to their recap on the radio -- they said something about the balcony moving up & down from the excitement of the crowd. So I'm surprised they're coming back to that venue this year.

    Based on the first night of Live 105 NSSN - Kings of Leon, Vampire Weekend, Queens of the Stone Age, AFI, Arctic Monkeys and Capital Cities for Saturday, Dec. 7.

    Guessing Lorde, Phoenix, Chvrches, Cage the Elephant, maybe Alt-J for Sunday, Dec. 8. Wild speculation on my part, but Arcade Fire as headliners? Sarah Neufeld has a solo show at the Hotel Cafe on Dec. 9.
    Arcade Fire - Santa Barbara Bowl, Aug. 4
    Spoon - Hollywood Forever Cemetary, Aug. 8
    Paul McCartney - Dodger Stadium, Aug. 10
    First Aid Kit - Wiltern, Nov. 12
    Coachella - Empire Polo Field, April 17-19

    Night 1 line up is being announced Monday.

    So hopefully they will announce night 2 Tuesday and not make us wait.

    I remember that apparently the balcony almost broke when The Offspring were playing

    I thought it was a great venue when I saw Arcade Fire there in 2010. Also GV just renovated the place, so it's not gonna be exactly the same as it was in 98.

    Crazy to think that Bowie played AAC in 1997, and went on before Green Day.

    Well, KOL is headlining. That's not good.

    Take out New Politics, and I'm fucking stoked for this lineup. My only issue is the price of the tickets. I still may go though. Actually I'm sure I'll go, I haven't seen KOL since Coachella 2011.

    SOOOO glad that I bought my tickets for Live 105's NSSN. It has KOL, QOTSA, Vampire Weekend, AFI, Arctic Monkeys, and Capital Cities, so pretty close to this lineup. Two GA tickets ran me about $180 I think so it's a way better deal.

    I love how people were calling into Kroq asking why it wasn't going to be at the Gibson.

    At least the Shrine has a few more seats...

    Gibson 6189

    Shrine 6300

    Good catch. They are really the only other band I could see headlining this right now. It will be really funny given KROQ doesn't actually play them.

    The size of the venues are not comparable though 6,000>14-15,000. That and Cage the Elephant, Foals, and Grouplove>>>>Capital Cities. Fuck new politics. Even towards the back in the orchestra you are still pretty close, not to mention a guaranteed seat to get back to(assuming you can buy a ticket)

    Although I'd be really sad to see Arctic and Queens get less than an hour set, thats not right.

    What is very encouraging is that there is only 9 bands on that day. Last year and the year before they had 11 bands per day. Either that means the event is starting later/ending earling, or each band will get more than 30 minutes(at least some of the names higher up on the bill). What I'm happy about is KOL headlining because that means they'll get a full hour and 15 minute set. That is basically a full set when it comes to them.

    And Arcade Fire. I'd imagine that's our night 2 of Almost Acoustic Christmas. Does this mean KROQ will have to start playing Arcade Fire?

    Night 2 looks be this minus alt-j (booked elsewhere) but plus capital cities, fitz and the tantrums, and chvrches. Very solid.
