    I'll be in New York starting 20th of March until the 28th. Any must-see shows to catch or a good link to look myself?

    On another note: Henry Rollins this Sunday! I'm curious what story's he got this time.

    I'm seeing New Order twice in March (one a side show and one a festival), the Peter Hook performing Closer in April (VIP meet and greet package).

    The Lollapalooza lineup was released and if this is true, I'm unbelievably underwhelmed by the headliners.
    Metallica, Beyonce, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Beck, The Killers, Sonic Youth

    So lackluster, in my opinion, if this is real.

    I like these headliners. Metallica still puts on a good show and is a ballsy booking. It'll be their first time at this festival since they moved it to Grant Park. I wasn't a huge fan of Beyonce, but I saw her set last year from Glastonbury and that's a fucking show. Beck is just plain awesome, and it's being billed as Sonic Youth's final show, which would be an event. Chili Peppers are good for what they are. Only one I don't like is The Killers since I think they're just an okay band and they were there quite recently. Headliners in all three festivals this year (Coachella, Bonnaroo, Lolla) have all been good, not great, but the undercard is where it's at.

    The only one I'd see is Metallica, just because, well, it's Metallica. I absolutely loathe Red Hot Chili Peppers, and I've just never been a huge Beck fan. Also, The Killers stopped being relevant to me soon after Hot Fuss. I don't know, I'm just super disappointed by these bands. I was really hoping for The Throne, Sigur Ros, Jack White, and maybe The Shins or something.

    But like you said, maybe the undercard will be phenomenal.

    Oh and I just read that Korn Featuring Skrillex is rumored to headline Perry's Stage. And to that, I say... Um... REALLY?! FUCKING REALLY!?

    From what I've heard Sigur Ros and Jack White were both rumored to play Lolla, they'll probably give them 75 minutes sets. I can see Jack White playing before Beck, and Sigur Ros playing before Sonic Youth.

    Korn and Skrillex is a shame though. I don't understand how Skrillex got popular.

    Friday: Working for Miranda Lambert.
    Saturday: Working for Lupe Fiasco.

    This should tame my musical ADD for a little while.

    I saw Miranda Lambert at the San Antonio Rodeo last year, I wanted to kill myself. Good luck.

    I've found that doing the sound for a band tends to give you a positive bias towards an act that you may not have normally liked. Of course, now and then it can have just the opposite effect...

    Ah, had no idea you were working the sound. Honestly I didn't have a complaint about her sound. Obviously it's not my kind of music, it was more of it just being another crowd that I'm not used to and taking a girl on a date and her and I having a miserable time. I don't think she's all that bad, "Only Prettier" is kind of a rad tune. Let me know how Lupe Fiasco is though, I hated Lazers, but I'm anxious to see if he's still a good performer.

    Hold Steady are coming back to Austin in April. I've seen this band nearly a dozen times and I don't think I'll miss this show either. The best bar band in America as far as I'm concerned.
