    It worked just fine for me.

    I wonder if they could ever get QOTSA to headline this? I don't think they'd break their budget booking them and I think they're popular enough here in Austin to draw a pretty big crowd.

    I think that C3 makes sure that ACL and FFF Fest have very little crossover. They probably made sure that FFF didn't get them.

    Talked to Bo Ningen in the Gobi after their set at Coachella weekend 2. They said they would be back in the US starting in October and would be hitting the west coast this time around. Would be a great early set on the black stage and that timing makes it a possibility.

    We were talking during Factory Floor's set so not the best time for picking out accents. Disappointingly, though, it was just the typical English spoken with a Japanese accent. No sign of a Cockney accent or anything like that.

    There was more to the conversation but it started out by saying awesome set, any chance you will make it up to San Francisco some time soon. I figured the bit I posted was most relevant to readers of this board.

    20 days! Realistically hoping for Todd Terje, Blood Orange, Mac demarco, and Modest Mouse

    Someone with fest knowledge -- if an act plays Austin in the spring, does that hurt their chances of playing this fest?

    Hmm. Good question. Deerhunter played last May (Psych Fest) and ended up on the bill. Can't recall any other names at the moment.

    I expect Mastodon to headline the black stage one of the nights. New album out in June and they're doing a huge tour over the next couple months in the US, but they completely skipped all of Texas and the rest of the south. I imagine they'll be hitting Europe all summer and do a fall/winter second leg here in the US. Not to mention they've played this festival before.

    If FFF doesn't book them you could always drive to Tempe. The lineup won't be announced until Monday but they're playing a fest here in September.

    Yep. That's what I've heard. They're playing the second day and I'm pretty sure Descendents are too.

    Yeah it's pretty wild. I couldn't believe it at first either. Luckyman typically doesn't tend to that demographic for these Tempe Beach Park fests.

    I haven't seen Mastodon since high school, it's been long overdue.

    For those of us that have no idea how old you are, how long is that exactly? Remission came out 2 years after I graduated, though I didn't see them for the first time for another 2 years, until they opened for Fear Factory in 2004.

    That was the first year of the Mayhem Festival. The biggest thing I took away from it was realizing how much worse Dragonforce are live. They gave me a massive headache.

    The Mats and Descendents back to back. Genius. I went over the rest of the lineup in the Phoenix Shows thread but it's pretty hit and miss besides those two.

    Todd Terje will be in SF on August 22nd and FYF Fest. I'm sure he'll have some other stops on this tour, but stretching it out for Fun Fun Fun in November is unlikely.

    I booked a cheap private hostel room today. Trying to make this happen!

    Titus Andronicus seems likely since they have a new album coming out. Hopefully Cloud Nothings and Little Dragon will be there as well.

    Little Dragon, yes please! They are playing Houston in a month so maybe they're skipping Austin due to FFF?
