I know two years is a pretty short turnaround and I've heard that 2011 was bad, but I figured there's a chance of them being there with a new album coming out and how many times they've played before. My feelings toward the Flaming Lips are mixed, some of their stuff I really enjoy and some of it I can't stand. And I've heard very conflicting accounts of their live shows, especially from recent years.
Yeah I don't understand the fascination with them. I think it's somewhat inevitable though. I've yet to attend Sasquatch (2013 will be my first though, woohoo), but I feel like Mumford & Sons appeal greatly to the less enlightened of the festival goers, which seems to make up a fair portion.
Anyone else think that the Strokes could be a headliner? I keep thinking about the possibility. I mean, as long as this new album is going to be released sometime in the first half of the year. It would be pretty sweet to see songs from Is This It live, and I like a few songs from their later material too.
