What nights should we book the house? I was thinking Thursday thru Sunday night (leave Monday)?
Good to know, i'm already looking at airfare. I'll be flying in either Thursday or Friday. Departing on Monday sounds good too.
Sooooooooo the house I had in mind doesn't book for only a few days. Back to the drawing board.
I can't find flights to Boston for under $380 yet. I'm hoping to pay almost half that lol.
I just did a search on kayak and I'm finding many nonstop roundtrip flights between LAX and Logan for under $350. But i'm tentatively planning on doing Wednesday-Wednesday so that might make the difference.
Wilco posted this duo will be at Solid Sound, one of which we already knew of course.
Solid Sound Comedy Lineup Announced! Once again curated by John Hodgman, featuring Reggie Watts, Al Madrigal and Jen Kirkman - Comedian.
The music line up finally has some announcements!
Announcing the Solid Sound 2013 lineup:
“Border Music” (featuring Marc Ribot and David Hidalgo)
The Dream Syndicate
Yep still coming in. I like what I see so far. Neko Case will be a great fit.
Oh man, that is so awesome Radiolab is going to be there
It looks like they will be playing two headlining shows which is great because that means lots of older songs.
"I is for “I Got You” which we’re pretty sure Wilco will play either Friday or Saturday."
I am also very excited Low will be there!
I don't know much about Dream Syndicate but i'm very interesterd. First North American show in 24 years.
The Dream Syndicate made its splash in 1982 with the debut album “The Days of Wine and Roses,” often cited among the top records in rock history and has been named as a major influence by such bands as Nirvana, Yo La Tengo, the Japandroids and the Black Crowes among many others. The appearance at the Solid Sound Festival is the only US appearance booked for 2013
Awesome, extremely happy about Dream Syndicate, Low, and Neko Case.
Modeskie Martin and Wood
Nels Cline and Julian Lage
Mark Mulcahy, which is making me even more excited for this
Marc Ribot was great at ATP 2011, don't miss that set
This festival looks so cool, I wish I liked this kind of music more so I would have incentive to go.
Edit: just realized Mark Mulcahy was the dude who did the Pete & Pete song, rad
Keeps getting better and better!
Yo La Tengo, playing a full set as well as live-scoring the film The Love Song of R. Buckminster Fuller
I like it.
eh too small.
A link instead.
"Star Gazing with a famed solar eclipse chaser." Weird and awesome.
I think the Solid Ground camping isn't very convenient. It's only for 2 nights and you have to pack up your car Sunday before you go into the festival. I have inquired with Historic Valley Campground where I camped in 2010. They were only 2 miles from the fest and they had showers and you could have a fire. If anyone is looking to share a rental car and camping let me know. We would have to coordinate airports as well. So far I can't find anything under $500 or $600 to Albany or BDL. I would rather not fly into Laguardia but so far they are cheapest around $300. Boston is about $350. I'm hoping we get closer to the $250 range at some point with so many airports to choose from.
Good times at Toad's and the Grotto.
This is the best Solid Sound lineup yet.
I'm an hour away from North Adams but was waiting for the Firefly announcement before committing to Wilco and friends.
Doing my reasearch - So far i've checked out The Dream Syndicate's The Days of Wine and Roses and Medicine Show and Sam Amidon's I See The Sign and I love all 3! Dream Syndicate is definitely one of those bands making me say "why the fuck haven't I been listening to these guys for 20 years?" (VERY similar to early The Damned records) and Sam Amidon is an incredibly pleasant surprise - dark folk music in the same vein as A.A. Bondy.
Booked a campsite at Historic Valley campground. It's less than 2 miles from fest. Same place I stayed in 2010.
