    GTFO.

    Pearl Jam, Muse, Black Keys, Daft Punk, Cafe Tacuba, Yo La Tengo...

    I enjoy watching some of the No-Name bands trying to hit it big too...

    You would know, because you've listened to more than 1 single from all of them, right?

    I actually recognize and listen to a bunch of those bands. I just didn't have anywhere to fit lolla into my schedule, but two of my friends were en route a couple hours ago. If you're going, have fun!

    Fun will be had!

    I only bought a 1-day ticket for Sunday, the only day I'm not helping out my roomie with stuff...

    I might have considered buying a full 3-day weekend ticket but those are tagged at the insanely high price of $195... V_V

    Even the 1-day tickets are high, they run at $80-a-pop

    (I hear bottles of water are $8 there, definitely bringing my own shit [​IMG] )

    Kinky rocks, Cafe Tacvba does too.
    Never heard Los Campesinos nor Yo La Tengo.

    I would love to see: Blue October, Pearl Jam, Daft Punk, Blue October, Snow Patrol, Modest Mouse, Peter Yorn, Cafe Tacvba and Kinky. (Is Iggy, THE Iggy Pop?)

    I don't think that's a band... [​IMG] I'm pretty sure that's a game, for the Playstation 2. [​IMG] Look at the other listing under that column. Looks like they'll be playing video games there.
