    That's surprising to hear. I remember watching the live stream for Weekend 1 and thought they were fantastic. However, I then saw them Weekend 2 and was a bit underwhelmed because their weekend 1 performance was so great on the webcast.

    I don't really like Modest Mouse, but there are generally several really good bands on at the same time at FYF so that shouldn't matter.

    It was my first time seeing them, and that went down as one of my favorite sets of the weekend. I can understand how the tangents/weirdness of it all could have put people off, but I was super into it.

    the reason i switched to wknd 2 this past year is because i was jealous of their wknd 2 setlist.

    however if you want to be wowed, see a club show. isaac hates festivals, and that wasn't the first time i've seen him troll a crowd/the organizers.

    I saw them at the US Open of Surfing at Huntington Beach last year. They played almost exclusively off of their first few albums, didn't speak to the crowd once, didn't play Float On and no encore. I thought it was amazing but the audience was not feeling it at all, so I can see where you're coming from with this.

    in 2010 they headlined pitchfork. he spent a good minute yelling at the audience for spending $4 on a bottle of water at the festival (it was about 100 that day). i don't know why he agrees to book festivals. it's obvious most people just want to hear float on and nothing pre- good news and it pisses him off. at coachella the crowd's biggest reaction was for him drinking his beer. there's definitely some kind of disconnect.

    Do they have a really loose definition of "downtown" or is it actually taking place there...

    USC is often considered "Downtown," but I definitely take your point and would agree that, at least that portion of the campus, is more South LA. Really more than anything I just consider that area to be "USC."

    Only saw Modest Mouse at W1 last year, but this was my reaction to the set. They had a lot of fun and I had some with them, but it seems like these guys need to be on their own wavelength to function on stage.

    1/7 of the acts have names related to pandas, panthers, or pantha.

    South L.A. is like Downey and South Gate. USC very much falls into the Downtown area designation.



    And the hotel to stay at is the Vagabond on Figueroa. Its where everyone stayed for Daft Punk in 2007 and all those Hard events at The Shrine.

    It is absolutely the beginning of South L.A. 110 and 10 are borders for Downtown L.A. But it's close enough to Downtown that it's not a bad description. Though perhaps that's not where it's going to be after all.

    That's an expansive definition of downtown. I work downtown on 1st and Fig and consider that the border. To me downtown is the triangle bordered by the 10, 110 and 5
    I have been to concerts. I will go to concerts in the future.

    So everyone is getting all border offended again? This isnt like the people in Silverlake who are banning the term "east side" cause they think their geography is somehow superior.

    This isn't like that at all. These are the actual definitions. Look at a map.

    This year seems likely to be Pitchfork Best New Albums picks of 2014 (minus Beyonce)...

    Ought
    Todd Terje
    Mac DeMarco
    Cloud Nothings
    The War On Drugs
    Perfect Pussy
    Real Estate
    St. Vincent
    Angel Olsen
    Sun Kil Moon

    I bet at least half of these are gonna be on the lineup.

    Also, what are the odds of Built to Spill? I've been dying to see them and they would be perfect for FYF.

    Are NMH and Modest Mouse really the rumors for headliners (with possibly maybe the Replacements)? I guess that's decent, but I personally would love to see Animal Collective get one of the slots. Really hope Slint is there though. Also really hope this shit ain't at USC or that coliseum, because seriously fuck that.

    Animal collective or Avey Tares Slasher Flicks would be cool. Doesn't NMH's date at the bowl kind of diminish their chances of playing FYF?

    NMH is at Hollywood Bowl on 9/18. They're also playing in Iceland on 8/20. I really doubt they'll be at FYF.

    I thought it was more or less a given that Slowdive will be there. Are they not a headliner?

    I think it's strange that this year compared to previous years we don't really have any concrete idea who might headline. Last year, we knew Yeah Yeah Yeahs would be there. 2012, we knew Refused and M83 would be there. Previous year, Descendents, Death from Above 1979 and Explosions In the Sky were known well in advance. Last year had bigger names that I expected, so it makes me wonder if they knew they were going to have to scale down this year's event instead of getting slightly bigger due to the venue change anyway? I haven't seen them peep much about it on social media either.

    As for headliner talk, only names I'm seeing thrown around here that makes sense are Modest Mouse and the Replacements. Modest Mouse has been booking festival dates and show dates along the east coast with Brand New, so I'd put their name down as expected as well if they end up on the lineup.

    Fucked Up and Tijuana Panthers seem like a foregone conclusion based on their Glasshouse date.

    Future Islands has to be there since this is their big breakout year and FYF has championed them from the start.

    After going to FYF for the past few years, it does get kinda boring seeing the same middle-low card bands recycled every two years, though. As much as I love the following bands, I'd rather not see Touche Amore, Title Fight and Joyce Manor on it again, but then that just makes believe they'll turn to their other standbys of Ceremony and OFF! for the third or fourth time to cater to those genres. Again, Fucked Up, too.

    FYF is promoting the show though, does that mean anything? Roxy is pretty small too, I feel they deserve the festival spot.

    I feel like it's pretty likely The Replacements, Interpol and Modest Mouse look to be the headliners/top names. Anything as big/bigger will be a surprise.

    And speaking of FYF's tendencies to recycle acts, who wants to bet $$$ Simian Mobile Disco is there yet again
