Earthless is great live.
Had a blast. A few sleep-deprived thoughts ...
Favorite acts: The Black Ryder, A Place to Bury Strangers, The Myrrors. Also dug Follakzoid, White Fence, The Sword, Creepoid, Survive, Chui Wan and...
Friday night is a cluster. I'll probably miss Soft Moon and Lightning Bolt, and go White Fence -> (some) Spiritualized -> Sword -> (some) Tame Impala -> Metz
Creepoid added, per the band's Facebook page.
Cloudland Canyon added to Friday (http://strangevictorytouring.com/cloudlandcanyon/)
Apart from the 2013 cancellation, anyone here have good/bad things to say about this one?

Lightning Bolt, White Fence, Eternal Tapestry, Fuzz. Lots of good stuff, but probably not enough to get me to commit to airfare/hotel at this point.

Bunkhouse is another option for drinks and is promising secret shows. http://www.lasvegasweekly.com/ae/music/2014/oct/24/life-is-beautiful-bunkhouse-beers-secret-shows/
Atomic Liquors, on the other end of the fenced-in LIB area (10th street), is a solid pretty great dive, too. Good rotating taps.
Commonwealth is super douchey. I'd recommend the Griffin or Downtown Cocktail Room, or even the Banger Brewing tasting room just down the street.
Downtown Stage, 3:30 Sunday.
Built to Spill plays the (reopened) Bunkhouse August 25.
Boris? I don't see an LA date, and they're playing SF 8/20. http://artistdata.sonicbids.com/boris/shows

Glad as I am to see some of those Windish acts on the bill, I'm assuming the fact that other Windish acts like Jon Hopkins, Oneohtrix Point Never, Panda Bear, The Antlers, The War on Drugs and Tycho...
Actually, next to both of their names it says "With Run the Jewels," so they're probably both doing that and not their own sets.
Avey Tare's Slasher Flicks, Blood Orange, Caribou, Darkside, Daphni, El-P, Flying Lotus, Four Tet, Jamie xx, Kalela, Killer Mike, Les Sins, Tanlines, Thundercat confirmed (Windish:...

For me, Bo Ningen was a top-3 set (Earthless, Mono), and the front half of the tent was super into it. Not exactly sure how full it was behind me, but it looked/felt like the band was super...
Oneohtrix not playing tonight (see APF's Facebook). Massive bummer.
Interpol plays Vegas on 8/21, so ...
Ah, now I get it. Looks like my night will end at DBT, then.
Thanks. So do you need a wristband to get into the pre-shows?
Drive-By Truckers are playing Stubb's that night (Thurs). I have tickets. Thinking about hitting one of the APF pre-shows after that ... speaking of which, do we need to exchange our print-out...
That's a VU cover, off the new RSD 12-inch. I'm guessing their APF set will mostly focus on last year's Peace on Venus record, which is quite good.
Just realized Gnod isn't on the schedule. Bummer if they dropped off.
Thanks for the info guys. Much appreciated.
Weird. I wonder if that means they might be changing stuff.
Also, for anyone who went last year, can you tell me:
1. How far apart the stages/tent are?
2. How big the tent is? (I'm assuming...
I guess I'm blind, 'cause I only see start times.
Are those end times guesses? Or are they listed somewhere on the APF site?
No Polvo :(
Nicolas Jaar is new on Friday, isn't he?
Saturday is amazing/overloaded. Steeling myself for brutal conflicts.
Merge 25 Festival: First round of bands & on sale date announced!
We're 25 and it's time to party!
Merge Records invites you to North Carolina to help us celebrate our 25th Anniversary at Merge...
I'm holding out hope they're playing both nights.
According to setlist.fm, their last three shows included "Watery Hands," "Burn Last Sunday" and "New Bruises" from Indoor Living (1997) and "1000 Pounds" and "Hello Hawk" from Come Pick Me Up (1999)....
