At least it makes it less likely that Sasquatch will sell out until the Pemberton lineup is announced. I think a lot of people will hold off on committing to one or the other until they know both lineups.
Pemberton is officially back from July 16-19. It will be interesting to see how much competition between the two there is. Maybe not as much because Sasquatch is back to one weekend?
More likely a bit of competition for attendees. After the strength of last year's Pemby lineup, I could potentially see some of our Canadian brethren forgoing Sasquatch in favor of Pemberton. Not everyone has the funds to be able to pull off both.
Indeed he is, and that would be fucking awesome if he played. Sadly though, it appears he is playing everywhere but Sasquatch. He is booked every day except Monday, and the only way he'll play then is if he goes from Calgary on Saturday to Sasquatch on Monday to Saskatoon on Tuesday.
Austin Psych Fest (now called LEVITATION) has announced its lineup. It now runs May 8-10. Lineup includes:
The Flaming Lips Tame Impala The Jesus and Mary Chain Spiritualized Primal Scream The Black Angels Thee Oh Sees Mac DeMarco Melody's Echo Chamber Lightning Bolt A Place to Bury Strangers The Sword Earth Fuzz (Ty Segall & Friends) The Soft Moon Metz White Fence
and a lot more smaller bands. Judging by the dates and location I'd say we're sure to get at least a couple of these!
Oooh, if The Sword ends up being "the heavy band" next year I will be pleased as punch. Sadly, I think they are one of the least likely candidates on that list, but I would really be ok with that whole lineup.
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.
