Okay, that was eerie. I've been watching Freaks and Geeks for the last few weeks (peeks, meeks, shiekhs, leaks, seeks), and I just watched the episode where Sam breaks up with his girlfriend because they watch the Jerk and she doesn't think Steve Martin is funny. And they show this scene in the show.
I love it. I totally love rumor season, and Coachella is the undisputed king of rumor season. I remember a couple years ago when summerkid (I think?) did the rumors thread and his handle was mentioned in articles on Rolling Stone, NME, LA Times, and all these different media outlets. Kind of hilarious to think that I could be mentioned in an article somewhere because of my board activity: "drewoftherushes claims Fleet Foxes will be headlining this year, citing his former coworker's cousin."
That's what festival season is for. Get your hopes up insanely high, suffer a huge letdown when the lineup is initially announced, and then come back a week later after it's sunk in and realize how awesome it is.
I more meant that they weren't as flashy as Sas had been in the past. Coming off the LCD/Ween/Pavement year, all the headliners had played the festival previously, which left a lot of people feeling a little cold, I think.
Fucking DFA1979 though, what a show. Even if the dudes didn't look at each other or acknowledge each other's presence in any way.
