    Default Weirdest bands on the undercard

    Who are they? Which bands/artists in the smaller print are actually doing something (or, at least, trying to do something) unusual or creative or different? Not the same old homogenized indie pop crap? List them here.

    GOAT is about as weird as it gets on this lineup.

    November 6 - Sia
    November 12 - Black Sabbath
    December 1 - Kanye West
    January 30 - Sleep
    July 3 - Roger Waters

    I was going to say GOAT as well. I'm really looking forward to their set. I guess world music is the easiest way to describe them.

    Thank you. Bo Ningen is, by far, my favourite discovery on the line up.

    Can't go wrong with a little New Orleans style jazz to mix things up.

    (Not really weird persay, just something different.)

    Is Bo Ningen actually weird or is it that we just can't understand what they are saying so it makes it weird? Either way, it's fan-fucking-tastic!!!!
    It's funny how everything was roses when we held on to the guns.

    Tom, if you don't know Jon Spencer Blues Explosion then you're going to have a lot of fun going through their stuff. They are a fuckin' killer live band. So energetic, sweaty and funky. I can see them being one of your favorite sets of the weekend, easily. The albums Orange and Now I Got Worry are both great, and apparently the newer work they've been putting out has been boss, but I haven't listened to anything post-hiatus so I can't comment there.

    Factory Floor puts on an excellent live show as well, and I'd highly recommend catching them. Super talented players and they'll get you moving.

    Girl Talk does this thing where he mixes the vocals of one song with the background beat of another song. It's called mash-up. I believe he invented it. Anyway, worth checking out if you're looking for something unusual or different.

    He did not invent it and it is not remotely unusual.

    And lots of TP. It is a profound statement on the flushable nature of pop culture.

    These guys seem.......unusual.

    They got a nice little groove going though. I'm thinking I have to see them now.

    The very existence of Empire of the Sun annoys the living piss out of me. They take kitsch to a whole new level.

    Little Dragon is rather quirky in my book. Might not be weird enough for this thread, but I don't see whats so weird about Graveyard or JSBE either.

    skip to :42


    Some might dump Future Islands into the indie pop bucket, but they have an atmospheric side and, personally, I find the frontman's pseudo-punk/theatrical performance mesmerizing. How often do you see a guy singing synth-y ballads as if he were Henry Rollins?

    Tempelhof would be a really cool place to go to a festival.

    Tom, you probably know him already but he definitely fits the weird and interesting category.
