If Courtney Love plays, I swear to god, I will wear a blindfold and ear plugs the whole day out of protest.
What does she play live? Does she even have solo material? I only know like 3 Hole songs and I get the sense from the internet that most think she is a pretty terrible person.
I don't know what she plays. I haven't seen her since Hole played Lollapalooza back in 95 and they were still playing off Live Through This (which Kurt wrote 90% of, not that they lying murderous whore would ever admit it). I'm sure she's put out other stuff since then, but the fact that she's such a horrible disgusting excuse for a human being overshadows any possible musical merit.
This is how I feel. Hopefully they put out an awesome lineup. Wondering what the Friday night will be.. are they still doing a rap/hip-hop artist? Could Run the Jewels headline?
Run the Jewels has to play, but I don't think they'll headline. If there's a hip hop headliner, I'm thinking Kendrick Lamar would be more likely, especially after his SNL performance a couple weeks ago. Possibly Wu-Tang, but not likely since they just played Bumbershoot.
Refused are playing some festival dates in 2015. Depending on their schedule I could see them as one of the "heavy" bands this year.
They are playing the Punk Rock Bowling festival in Las Vegas Memorial Day Weekend. Given the the relative proximity of Nevada and Washington along with modern advancements in transportation technology, I consider them a plausible and fucking awesome booking.
Edit: Rancid is also playing that festival. I don't think we'd get both of them, I but I consider either one equally likely and potentially awesome.
Smashing Pumpkins are headlining the three South American Lollapaloozas, and they (he? I don't know what Billy is doing anymore) haven't played Sasquatch. Can anyone see them playing Sasquatch, or is it 20 years too late?
I can not only see them doing it, I consider them one of the most likely headliner candidates so far. They headlined the first show I ever went to at the Gorge, about 20 years ago, and they blew my mind. It was the first time I realized how much better live music could sound compared to recorded. I've never been a big fan of their (his?) albums, but I would kill to see them again, especially at the Gorge.
