    True, but it was fucking empty when I saw them on the Polo Field. I'm sure they could draw a larger crowd for FYF, but YYYs managed to pack in the Main Stage at Coachella last year with no big crowd draws following. If the Replacements headline FYF, that's going to be a large step down audience-wise from last year's headliners.

    This is why I think that until we know where FYF is taking place, whether or not what I'm assuming what will be less popular headliners might not make a smaller audience turnout apparent if the venue so happens to be smaller and the quality of bands lacks a wow factor. I don't know... Sean Carlson seems like the type of promoter who still wants to see the thing grow, but also doesn't give a shit at the same time to book based solely on ticket sales. He did cut down the number of acts and shorten the days last year, for example, to make it less exhausting and ensure everyone got to appreciate the bands.

    (But after today, I'm inclined to believe the National might headline with someone else like Modest Mouse, and the Replacements will respectfully be touted as headliners to one of them but still serve as subs.)

    You also forget the fact that if the Replacements are headlining a $50/day festival, Replacements fans are more likely to go. They have an older fan base that isn't all that likely to want to do Coachella.

    Oh, are we just a bunch of cheap, underemployed lowlifes with cars that can't make it across the desert that don't want to hang out with a bunch of Calvin Harris fans for three days?
    I have been to concerts. I will go to concerts in the future.

    I doubt Best Coast is on the lineup, unless it's a late add, considering they are headlining the Burger Records thing 8/2. I could see them and Dum Dum Girls being late adds tho.

    Chris, for Phantogram, do radio shows really count tho?

    Yeah, still counts. You really think KROQ went to the trouble of trying to book Phantogram , when a week later FYF/GV will put em on a possibly more favorable line up/ event? How many bands announced tour dates after KROQ Almost Acoustic ended? Quite a few.

    I know there's no correlation between the festivals, but the fact that National is now headlining Riot Fest Toronto, which is mostly punk/hardcore-centric, on top of the First City Fest, leads me to believe that they're a sure thing for FYF now. Just seems like they're hitting up a ton of fests they haven't before toward the end of August/September.

    Edit: Here's hoping they have some rare gets in store like past years. This is shaping up to be one of the first FYF Fests where the only names I've seen mentioned so far are pretty standard festival fare.

    New tour dates for Future Islands. Looks like they're pretty much confirmed:

    08-16 Portland, OR - MusicfestNW
    08-18 Sacramento, CA - Harlow's
    08-25 Tucson, AZ - 191 Toole

    Spoon just announced an August 8th show at Hollywood Forever. A bit less likely now I guess.

    With their latest buzz, I suspect they'll be a subheadliner. Would be a fun dance party just after dusk but before the main headliner.

    I could see them as a 3rd or 4th name, but subheadliner seems a little much.

    Would the Strokes headline? They'll be announcing a fall tour in the coming months so fyf may be premature.

    I still have them as a wild card for headliner.

    FYF also tends to also be somewhat of a compilation of a lot of the bands they've put shows on for over the past year. Looking at tour dates and remembering who had FYF-promoted shows this year, I can see the following as possible bookings:

    Against Me!
    Cold Cave
    Deafheaven
    DIIV (in support of their new album possibly?)
    The Julie Ruin
    La Dispute
    Mutual Benefit
    Volcano Choir (no, they weren't an FYF show, but they have festival dates popping up in late August/September so I'm just throwing it down here because it makes a bit of sense as a possibility)

    If you google "Strokes tour fall 2014" the first result is their official website, which states exactly that on the front page.

    Location, line up, ticket info, etc will all be announced at the same time, supposedly by May 15 (though with their track record, I wouldn't hold my breath).

    The board feels pretty confident it will be around the Coliseum at USC, but we don't have anything official yet.
