Oh what's this? A dead horse? How fortunate that I have brought my beating log!
Now I now that I am a baby-squatch and that being an 18 year old makes me a musical idiot, but I also believe that I am part of that "larger audience" that wompwomp mentioned. Yet, somehow, I still feel as though the 2011 lineup is... underwhelming when compared to the 2010 set (Modest Mouse excluded).
NOW I SHALL POST LISTS!
Bands I would've spazzed about last year (judging by high school age, moderately music literacy): Band of Horses Broken Social Scene Brother Ali Deadmau5 Ed Sharpe Freelance Whales Fruit Bats Kid Cudi LCD Soundsystem Local Natives MGMT Mumford and Sons MMJ Public Enemy She & Him The Hold Steady The Low Anthem The Mountain Goats The New Pornographers The Tallest Man On Earth The Temper Trap Vampire Weekend Ween
That's 23, without the awesome comedians.
Artists I'm SUPER PUMPED to see play this year (same criteria!): Foo Fighters Death Cab For Cutie Modest Mouse Wilco The Flaming Lips The Decemberists Bright Eyes Iron & Wine Rodrigo Y Gabriela Bassnectar Flogging Molly Pink Martini Old 97’s Ratatat Wolf Parade Local Natives Matt & Kim Skrillex K-Os The Antlers Noah & The Whale
Now some of you are wondering, "Why, Skylar, did you chose to incorporate odd formatting as well as a smug looking hipster smiley face in your lists?" and for exactly that reason, I have included this key:
BOLD FONT means that they are bands of decent prominence The Smug Hipster Smiley means that ALL the shitty little hipsters will/did fawn over this band.
Now that we've established that, I have a list of results that I'd like to share:
Bands I'm Interested In
Hipster Shit Bands
When presented with this evidence I think it is clear to see, if my musical tastes are to be trusted, that the lineups are, indeed, comparable from last year to this, and, therefore, if Adam Zacks is to maintain his credibility, he must impress the Sasquatch-going audience with improvements to the format of the festival itself!
...I'm sorry, I totally forgot my original point. Coding html-forum tables is a pain in the ass.
