Hooray! I can cross another off my "bands I really want to see Iive" list... And probably add them to my "bands I really want to see live again" list.
So if they set up a separate price saving presale for each weekend, would you fellow festival addicts buy passes for both without seeing the lineup for either?
Why yes, yes I would. Assuming I can afford it. I've got faith in Snacks and I'm really confused by everyone's knee-jerk negative reaction to something that hasn't happened yet. I really think Julysquatch is going to pick up a bunch of acts from Primavera's lineup, which are always top-notch, it'll snag some of the big Summer tours as well.

I really can't even call myself a Lady Gaga fan, I don't have any of her music and I don't go to her shows but my roommate is a fan and the live stuff I saw last night was both artistic and entertaining ... and she wasn't lip syncing neither. I agree with much of your sentiment but given that Lady Gaga started as a song writer, writes her own music, plays the piano, wears pieces of art as clothing and can dance like a mothafucka... I'd say it's pretty damn hard to argue that she is not an artist ...who makes pop music.

Atta Gramma! I dig the Haitian/Kanaval influence and the loop-da-loops on the new album. So far it doesn't touch me the way Funeral or even Neon Bible did (granted I was 18-20 y/o and I never really listen to either anymore but I was way into 'em back in the day). Reflektor grows on me more every time I hear it, especially the second half. It is without a doubt boatloads better than the steaming shit pile that was The Suburbs.
It really is ALL about the live show. I hope it will be as raw, large and thrilling as it was back in 2005 & 2007. Remember when dude was throwing his gigantic cymbal up into the air as high as he could & letting it crash onto the stage (or onto him) over and over until he collapsed and had to be helped off the stage? Their SNL performance has me a bit nervous/skeptical but most everybody has a rough go of it on SNL.
