The looks I get when I wear my old Isis shirt these days. It used to be just another band tee, but now people get the waaaay wrong idea. I think it's hilarious, but I'm also a kind of afraid it might get me shot in this little redneck town one of these days.

I've been listening to Kendrick's new album a lot and am extremely excited for his show at Sasquatch, it seems like it's going to be awesome! It'll be cool because we have no idea what to expect with his new stuff live since this will be his first time performing it. Anybody have any predictions on what to expect? What songs from the new album do you think he'll do? Maybe which ones would work for him to open or close with? There's so many songs on here that seem like they'd be so crazy to see live.
Check out some of the footage online from the surprise show he did on the back of a truck in Hollywood the other night. He had a full live band and it was insane. Even Money Trees from GKMC sounded 100x better with the band playing it, but the jazz stuff on the new album will be fucking incredible played live.

In an ordinary year, Earl Sweatshirt and Action Bronson would probably be working their way onto my list too, but I think that Kendrick might have ruined regular rap albums for me. Motherfucker raised the bar.

Just ordered tickets for Imagination Dragons at the Tacoma Dome in July for my daughter's birthday. All things considered, it could be worse and I should be thankful it's not Justin Bieber, but that still doesn't mean I have to be excited about it. It is going to blow her 12 year old mind, though.

Guys, I think I like Ryan Adams. Usually, that borderline country heartland Americana Mellencamp rock doesn't do anything for me, but this dude is one hell of a songwriter and some of his songs give me the serious feels. Plus, his self titled album that came out last year is actually really good. When I first saw the lineup, I thought he was billed way too high, but the dude has 14 studio albums (not counting the stuff he did with the two bands he was in over the years and several live albums), so I think he's earned the high billing. He also has quite a reputation as an exceptional live performer. Barring any major scheduling conflict, I think I will be enjoying his set this year.
And since he shouts out Killer Mike on the album, I have a fantasy that RTJ will hang out a couple extra days so Mike can do a guest spot in Kendrick's set. The two of them on stage together would be too much to handle.
I have great news for you, Professor: they're both on Monday!
Did RTJ move? I thought they were on Saturday or Sunday.
Edit: RTJ on Monday confirmed. Killer Mike guest spot during Kendrick confirmed!
