i thought i read somewhere PL was bringing out a live band for this tour
It is a live band but he controls all of the sounds from the live band from his board instead of letting the sound board do it plus all of his rigs that he uses to do his live stuff. Sounds amazing.
It was crazy hearing him talk last night, he's like an evil genius. I didn't realize that for his new album he hired studio musicians to create all these musical sounds he likes on many different vinyl albums and then he sampled his own vinyls he created to put together the album. It's insane the amount of work he puts into everything.
He was talking about how for the light show he spent several months just photographing and filming sunsets, nature, walls, etc. to piece it together for his visual show that he synchronizes with his sounds.
And he created this inverted disco ball with all of these lights inside of it that hangs over him and is 800 pounds to create this strange sun effect.
It was fascinating hearing how he works.
I hope to see everyone there!
There's still plenty on the line up to love, cancellations are part of life with festivals, I just roll with it.
Adventure Club has been added. Meh not digging them.
People were giving them static about the cancellations and Ashley Capps posted the reason, I had no idea about the DeLoreon kidnapping!
And some people are complaining some of the music is too experimental! What losers!
First add, Adventure Club, they're okay...
We can book artists that we love, but sadly we can't control everything. We don't issue visas, we can't control illness, or flight cancelations, or the other decisions that artists may need to make for whatever reason. Tricky couldn't get a visa to enter the country. He had to cancel all of his shows. DeLorean underwent a kidnapping ordeal that obviously left them rattled. Rudimental had to make a career decision. We have to roll with it. What we can do is try to find other great artists to fill the voids. Which is what we are doing. One is already filled and will be announced this afternoon. Other ideas are being explored and discussed. Please be patient and let's see what we can do here. Thanks!
So now they added Cashmere Cat, who I have never heard of.
So that makes Adventure Club and Cashmere Cat added.
1 more to go.
They also moved some acts around at the music hall
Big Black Delta now close which sucks for me because I was going to catch some of their set before NIN
Thirty Monk is off Patton and Coxe . Also Asheville Brewery is off Coxe and Sawyer.
Also that whole sing along is very drunk friendly.I was blackout and still remember it.

What time is everyone going to be at ABC next Friday for the pizza buffet?
Great news re: Purity Ring. I'm expecting Nine Inch Nails to be my favorite set of the weekend, but Claude Vonstroke > Purity Ring > Deltron 3030 > Neutral Milk Hotel is going to be incredible.
