I've been having troubles understanding the appeal of Hot Chip... just not my style of music I guess. But the new song they released today, Huarache Lights, has got me thinking I should give them a second chance. Really like it.
It took a long while for me to get into them as well. Also their live shows are really really awesome.
Tickets obtained! The Live Nation password didn't work so I had to use the KEXP password instead.
I'm going to have to think hard before buying tickets next year though. While I really like the lineup, I'm not sure if it's worth $400+ with shipping and camping charges. (And I know it's going to cost more for you Canadians).
I quite like the lineup. I can't tell you how quickly I forgot about the headliners (With an exception of Modest Mouse) but the undercard looks really really great. I was surprised by the lukewarm response though here since I feel like this beats the 2011 lineup by a country mile. I'm looking forward to finding all the cool little bands.
With that being said, I'm really thrown off by Of Monsters and Men headlining...? That must be a mistake.
Also I saw Hot Chip is playing Monday. Which is kind of a bummer since I was really hoping for a late night set. Also becoolyolanda, I shall be there.
