All that is left to do here is find out a way to get there.

Lollapalooza Lineup Leaked

Posted in Music Festivals with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 4, 2008 by attemptedmustache

You know, there are few things that I get really excited about: The Season Premiere of Battlestar Gallactica, sushi, cheese… very few things.

But now I have to add some Jim De Rogatis to this list of exciting things, cuz he just ‘apparently’ leaked a huge portion of the Lollapalooza lineup. I mean, what a guy… he just couldn’t wait until April 7th, and who could blame him?

Well enough stalling, here’s the leak:

“Art-rock giants Radiohead and Nine Inch Nails, the reunited Rage Against the Machine, Jack White’s side project the Raconteurs and hometown heroes Wilco and Kanye West will headline the main stages on Aug. 1-3.

The Raconteurs, Wilco and West will each be making their second appearance at the reinvented destination festival. Other repeaters among the more than 100 acts on this year’s bill are Gnarls Barkley, the Black Keys, Broken Social Scene, G. Love & Special Sauce, Blues Traveler and Mates of State.

Quite a few of the other acts — including many of the most promising — have earlier performed at Chicago’s two independently produced music festivals, Pitchfork and Intonation. These include Bloc Party, Cat Power, Stephen Malkmus, Girl Talk, Kid Sister, Office, the Cool Kids, Battles, the Go! Team, Jamie Lidell and Grizzly Bear.”

Well, that looks like a pretty dreamy little start to a super weekend.
But I mean, I didn’t really need to hear all the hype. Lollapalooza, you had me at ‘Wilco’.

Virgin Fest US-Lineup Revealed-Kinda Lame

Posted in Music Festivals with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 2, 2008 by attemptedmustache

Well… it looks like the long-awaited Virgin Festival (Calgary) ought to be revealing its lineup pretty soon here, cuz Virgin Fest AMERICAN (aka: Baltimore) revealed it’s headliners.

And… well, they suck.

I hate to say I told you so.. but Virgin Fest is more than likely, going to blow.
Yeah, it’s the festival made in redneck, hillbilly heaven, and it’s gonna be prime for those head-banging losers in their country sweat pants, gettin’ wrecked on those Triple Rye cokes, and those Pilser tallcans. haha.

Seriously though:

Foo Fighters

Jack Johnson

Kanye West

Stone Temple Pilots

Nine Inch Nails

I mean seriously… who’s next, Nickel Back? I better go find the shotgun right now, and put myself out of my own audible misery.

Seriously though, I don’t even care if Richard Branson shaves his hairy-ass and face for this concert, its pretty much destined to be shitty. Minus maybe NIN and Kanye…

I mean, Stone Temple Pilots–I can’t wait to watch some washed-up junkie, try and find a workable vein, while he attempts to sing a bit, then croaks… just not my bag.

But for those of you who are into dead guys, enjoy the worms, but don’t expect to see me there!

For more info, read this shit:

Virgin Mobile Festival (Baltimore) takes between August 9 and 10 at the Pimlico Race Track in Maryland. The full lineup is expected to be announced in the coming days.

Virgin Group Founder and Chairman Sir Richard Branson announced the headliners during a keynote at the 2008 CTIA Wireless convention in Las Vegas. He said the rest of the two-day lineup and additional information about the event will be announced in the coming weeks.

Kyocera Wireless will again be the handset partner and premiere sponsor of Virgin Mobile Festival. In Vegas, Branson also debuted Virgin Mobile USA’s “Virgin Mobile Festival Special Edition Wild Card” handset from Kyocera, which will be available exclusively at Best Buy this summer.

Fans who purchase the phone will receive festival-inspired content as well as other additional benefits.

Over and out.

Pemberton Festival-Canadians Can Rock-out to more than just Nickelback

Yeah… Pemberton sounds like some small English town that might house a Castle made entirely out of Mentos.. but, it sure ain’t.. it’s a little redneck town just outside of Whistler, British Columbia and it plans to be the future site of a very very cool Canadian Music Festival.

So if you’re like me, you’ve likely gotten far too accustomed to migrating 1000s of miles across the continent to catch acts you’d never see in Alberta, Canada. So… let Pemberton cut down your travel time by a couple days (though that might cut the fun in half too–if you’re a lover of the road trip).

The 2008 Pemberton Music Festival includes these amazing acts:

Coldplay, Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, Nine Inch Nails, Jay-Z, Flaming Lips, Interpol, Death Cab For Cutie, The Tragically Hip, Serj Tankian, My Morning Jacket, Metric, Sam Roberts Band, Vampire Weekend, Black Mountain, Minus The Bear, Wintersleep, Buck 65, Secret Machines, MGMT, Brazillian Girls, SIA, Fiery Furnaces, Mates of State, The Airborne Toxic Event, Carolina Liar, Grand Ole Party, Monte Negro, Low Vs Diamond, Annie Stela, The Crystal Method, DJ Shadow & Cut Chemist, Junkie XL, David Seaman, Booka Shade, MSTRKRFT, M.A.N.D.Y., Tommie Sunshine, Chromeo, Deadmau5, 3 OH! 3, Kevin Shiu, Timeline, Tony Pantages

The Festival is set for July 25-27 in Pemberton, B.C

Tickets go on sale Friday March 28th and can be found HERE!

And talk about the perfect place to have a concert, this place looks like a magical fairy land!!
