I won't be at Paid Dues, but I'll probably be at Rock the Bells.

I just realized this was announced 2 months ago, and is happening in the next 2 weeks. lol. I'm surprised there wasn't more posted about it around here. maybe I just missed it. whatever.

Yea, oddly I was just looking at that (saw a friend was going via last.fm). Doesn't look that interesting, but Rock the Bells actually doesn't look bad!

Was Murs in the Sahara on Friday wearing an ed Banger shirt during Mehdi, or was just a black dude with crazy hair???

Possible. At the end of his set on Sunday, he talked about going over to see Justice and I think he'd mentioned Mehdi. Can't remember.
