So uh, theoretically, if a man were to go about getting into Sleater Kinney, what might be a good place to start?
Their new album is one of the best out the year so far, so there's that. The Woods and Call The Doctor are excellent too. You really can't go wrong. I say start with No Cities to Love and just work your way backward through their catalog.
so is the consensus on here that Slater Kinney will for sure headline? It seems likely they will, but that post about the sasquatch announcement not using the word headline has me greedily hopeful for one more...
To label Sleater-Kinney as a headliner would be to admit that they released the lineup without one and I think they're reluctant to admit that. I think they fit perfectly as a headliner, but if Snacks & Co can find a way to top them, well that's just gravy. Either way, I'm satisfied. 20 acts on Friday seems pretty full now (by comparison, 2013 had 18 on Friday). I could see possibly another comedy act or two, but otherwise, barring cancellations, I think we've seen most all of the adds we're getting.
They played the Friday afternoon set at the Main stage in 2012. Once you go maine you never go back??
Vampire Weekend main staged in 2010 only to be "demoted" to the bigfoot in 2013. So you never know.
Vampire Weekend was originally supposed to sub-headline the main stage but had to reschedule to a different day due to playing Primavera that same weekend, so they ended up on the Bigfoot because the main stage was already booked up that night.

They will be on the Main stage, but hopefully it will be at the same time that Gogol is tearing up the Bigfoot. I'm speculating that Friday night by state will look like Main: New Pornographers > Of M&M > S-K, Bigfoot: Action Bronson > Gogol > Little Dragon, Tent: Kaytranada > Jungle > Flume. The only problem I see here is a possible conflict between Jungle and GB, but hopefully I'm wrong and Jungle ends up with the late night Bigfoot slot and Friday night will be near perfect.
And before anyone jumps on me for not liking Prince's music. His musicianship is fine.
His hating me because I enjoy sex with men from time to time is unacceptable and his belief that god flooded the earth because women were fucking women and men were fucking men would be unacceptable at a Festival that has supported the right to marriage for all peoples and LGBT charities.
I've never had sex with a man, but I would have sex with Prince if he wanted me to.
