sheryl crow and katy perry? oh god, i think i'll be staying home this year.
sheryl crow is a headliner pretty much anywhere she goes, so that's probably a lock for one of the days. katy perry is not headliner material whatsoever so she'll probably be an opening act for the teenage girls, kind of like paramore was last year. modest mouse would be a solid band to lead into a bigger name headliner. it definitely is still very early, but last year's band of horses / beck and offspring / death cab days will be hard to beat.

Yeah, I bought tickets for the $80 price thinking that only one headliner has been announced. Either way, for $80 getting MM, Holy Fuck, MSTRKRFT, DJ Spooky, De La Soul was pretty close to being worth it. They usually have lots of good late adds for this festival right? If there are even two bands that you like each day, its worth the $27 price per day. I'm thinking that with some good comedy adds and a few nice music adds its going to be worth it, and gives me another reason to head to Seattle for a weekend.
I am also hoping to make it to the Capital Hill Festival with Jesus Lizard and Sonic Youth Headlining.
