Damn that Father John Misty is a polarizing figure. I don't know that the only options are him or a button pusher though. For the record, I wasn't being facetious when I said I was glad he is there and hope he plays that song for you. Also, Jefferin Jeffotash, if I were to eat a handful of mushrooms I bet I would get down with some Father John Misty
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.
I go through phases with Hot Chip. I have to take long breaks without listening to them for a while so I don't get tired of them. Whenever I revisit it sounds like magic though. The first album I heard was Made In The Dark and I still think that is my favorite. "Shake A Fist" sunk their teeth into me and never let go. I love the use of that ...sounds of the studio... intro on that track. "Wrestlers" might be one of my favorite cute/cheesy songs ever. I would give that album another shot if you haven't in a while.
Edit: And this new single makes me even more jealous of you lucky attendees.

I don't know what it is about Father John Misty but I can't get down with him. I actually loved Fleet Foxes but there is something about him that gets under my skin. I have never owned one of his albums or even listened to one all the way through. Maybe that is what I need to do. For now, he just seems like someone that I wouldn't like and I am trying to separate that from his music so I can give it a fair shake. However, I am glad he is there and I hope he plays that song for you

I am hoping to make it to Total Fest this summer. If I do I will definitely be checking out that brewery.
Also, you Washington craft beer fans should check out Hop Mob. It is the triple IPA roadshow for Washington breweries. We went last Friday to the kickoff event and it damn near destroyed me. All of the beers are supposed to be at least 100IBUs and 10% ABV. A couple didn't quite get up there but still close. The first and last events have all 32 beers on tap at the same time. The events between have some of the beers on tap but not all of them. My favorite was from Standard Brewing.
Yes, it was that year. If it wasn't for Heart that would have been my favorite show of the weekend.
Dude, I'm pretty sure Heart wasn't there that year. After reading this I thought I might have missed them, so I had to go find a poster for verification. That was the only time I made it into the arena that weekend. It seemed like way too big of a hassle to get in for any headliners unless you wanted to camp in there all day.
Edit: Were Heart playing somewhere else that weekend? I kind of assumed you meant at Bumbershoot.
You know maybe it wasn't with Big Boi. It was 2013 Bumbershoot.

I can tell this would evolve though. I still have never checked out Ought or Nothing and both of them seem right up my alley. I think this lineup is fucking awesome (way better than last year). Wish I could go.
