    Wish I could go but damn holiday Christmas parties. Some good undercard bands with Grouplove, JEW, and I kinda have been liking Bishop Briggs. Hope some of these show up at Coachella in April.

    This is probably the best Acoustic Christmas lineup since 2004 (which isn't saying much).

    I think I might try to see night 2. Haven't seen Green Day since high school. Always great to see Beck. Never seen Weezer but always wanted to.

    I hope we get Beck at Coachella too.

    how out of place did Bowie and Portishead feel Night Two of '97?

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/KROQ_A...stic_Christmas

    Can't really tell which year looks best? '92? Must admit I went to the first night of '98 (aka the wrong night. pretty sure bought tickets before lineup came out...well, hope so for own sake. Yes, korn came out with dbag pipes.). Snow Patrol lol. U2 cancelled heh. Beck must like it. Be surprised if any of the '90s djs were still there...like that funny, spazzy one. Strider? Probably offed themselves on air. I know RIchard does the 80s satellite radio channel.

    There's a KROQ of the 80's feed on channel 2 of their HD station (106.7.2) that's actually better than 1st Wave if you can believe it. You need an HD radio to listen to it, but for some reason they still constantly advertise for buying HD radios on it.

    Incubus. Back-to-back nights con orchestra. rofl

    if he's still alive and holding court at denny's, Rodney-on-the-roq should have or should have had a festival. You know he'd get the best girl groups, britpop, and power poppers around. He could also do his crappy angst and longing songs like 'i hate the 90s' and 'teenage girl'. He's like michael jackson w way better taste in music. Should have/should be a Rodney festival instead of nearly 25 yrs of 99% dogcrap xmas shows.

    ha. I went that night. my dad worked in the music business and took me. I was 6 so I don't remember anything except the Aquabats, which were the only band on the bill that I knew of or was excited about. they were a blast. Now that I'm older I wish I could go back and see that same show over again. I think we left before Bowie .

    I will say the crowds for Foster the People and Vance Joy at festivals like Lolla and ACL have been mind blowing to me, I had no idea they were that popular

    Actually wish I could go to KROQ this year, theres enough there to make it a fun weekend
