Built to Spill are excellent at all times, so everyone shut up.
Last I saw them was opening for the Lips in '09. It was hot as hell, nearly half of the audience was stuck in a traffic jam outside the venue during their set, and they only played for half an hour before leaving us to wait a full ninety minutes for Wayne to put his crotchless panties on or whatever. And they were EXCELLENT.
They played 'Virginia Reel Around the Fountain' so you all can go to hell.
Have any of you seen BTS recently. They kind of blow. There seems to be a complete lack of interest from Doug. BTS is best when they turn into a, dare I say, "jam band" and the last two times I saw them they failed miserably in that aspect.
Every time I have seen them they have blown me away. Especially at Sasquatch, I thought they sounded incredible.
Kaskade has done collabs with both skrillex and deadmau5 and has been to coachella before. Fits the rave music category like fairowen said. easily well known and big enough for a late night set. Some house music for a little change
I honestly think Kaskade is too big for that slot. If they announced him this thing would sell out within a day. But I definitely wouldn't complain!
I thought for sure Kaskade or Avicii was going to be on the lineup, so either one of them would make sense.
I've come down on my excitement for a Roots late night set. Don't get me wrong, they are definitely one of my most anticipated acts, but a late night set just feels really weird to me. They would be better suited elsewhere.
