Everyone loves to laugh…

Well, I don’t know if that’s actually true, but… it’s cliche.. so somebody has to believe it!

Sasquatch revealed their comedy additions to their 2008 lineup and it looks pretty good. So if you pee a little when you laugh too hard… better bring some back ups.

Here’s the Additions:

Upright Citizen’s Brigade performing A.S.S.S.S.C.A.T. And more featuring: Matt Besser, Matt Walsh, Horatio Sanz, Tim Meadows, Jerry Minor, Rich Fulcher, and Sean Conroy / Brian Posehn / Michael Ian Black / Michael Showalter / Eugene Mirman / Reggie Watts / Marc Maron / Morgan Murphy / Seattle School featuring: Mike Min, Korby Sears, Liza Keckler / People’s Republic of Komedy featuring: Andy Haynes, Kevin Hyder, Aziza Diaz, Derek Sheen, Andy Peters

So that combined with a stellar lineup pretty much spells out: AWESOME!

Lollapalooza: Will you be soooo Awesome?!

Posted in Music with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 7, 2008 by attemptedmustache

As rumors unfold, it seems that the answer to this question is definitely ‘yes’!

Today the Chicago Tribune confirmed that Radiohead AND NIN will be headliners for Lollapalooza this summer.

Radiohead and Nine Inch Nails are expected to headline the fourth incarnation of Lollapalooza in Grant Park Aug. 1-3.

Promoters won’t make the lineup official for a few more weeks, but industry sources have confirmed that Radiohead has been booked as the centerpiece of the festival…

In addition, Nine Inch Nails will play its first Chicago show in several years, following the release of its 2007 album, “Year Zero,” and the four-volume “Ghosts,” made available a few days ago on the Web site.

So far.. this is the MOST promising set of headliners I’ve seen out of any of the Festival listings thus far! (with Sasquatch just legging a little behind in the runnings).

Not to mention, the hugely covetted 3-day presale tickets to Lollapalooza (if you can snatch em up in time) are a crazy $60.00!!! Think about that! How many awesome bands can you see in concert these days for $60 flat? Very few. AND yet Lolla is giving you a full meal deal of music awesomeness for a bargain price. Now thats a concert I can get on board with.

Other rumors include: Wilco, Black Lips, and Bang Camero.

Rothbury Festival Comes out of Nowhere!

Ever since the release of the Coachella 2008 lineup, I’ve been reeling and writhing in agony just waiting for a better festival to present itself. Then out of no where the Rothbury Festival arrives… and… furthers my fall into a sad sad musical depression.


The Coachella forum has been rumoring this mystery festival for a little while now, and it seems like there are plenty of people out there just like me just waiting with baited breath for something better to come our way. I’m glad to see I’m not the only opportunist. And whats that shit they say about how idealists never succeed?! I won’t believe it!!

Either way, it doesn’t look like this is going to be THE festival I’ve been hoping for though… but the lineup is pretty decent, just not quite enough for me to take the bait. Seems that the longer I wait the more my hopes on Lollapalooza, Sasquatch and the All Points West Festival seem to grow.

As per the Rothbury Festival: (To be held in Rothbury, Michigan between July 3-6)

Here are some of the highlights:

Dave Matthews Band + Widespread Panic + John Mayer + 311 + Phil Lesh and Friends + Primus + Thievery Corporation + Snoop Dogg + Modest Mouse + Michael Franti and Spearhead + Gov’t Mule + Slightly Stoopid + STS9 + Colbie Caillat + The Black Keys + Yonder Mountain String Band with Jon Fishman + Gogol Bordello + Citizen Cope + Keller Williams and The WMD’S + The Disco Biscuits+ Medeski Martin & Wood + Ray LaMontagne + Derek Trucks & Susan Tedeschi Soul Stew Revival + Drive-By Truckers + Of Montreal + The Dresden Dolls + Gomez + Brett Dennen + Taj Mahal + Mike Gordon + Zappa Plays Zappa
