    my initial impression of Mt. Eden is "no fun zone". So i guess these guys would have the edge.

    My 9 year old is looking forward to these guys. I think he's the target audience. Most kids would outgrow The Midnight Beast by 14.

    I didnt know that one of Coachella's target audiences is 9 year olds.

    I really hope it was a bunch of GV executives sitting on a round table and one said, "Speaking of new artists for this festival, my 8 year old daughter Amber, recently told me about an upcoming youtube sensation from the UK. I think its a no brainer gentlemen."

    It's just as likely that they paid GV to play, trying to add a market in Amurca.
    THIS IS SOME REAL SHIT.
