Massively dissappointing Langerado line-up

Share/Bookmark
Posted by admin On December - 9 - 2008

~Z.T.~ These headliners are a joke. None are better than a second stage warm-up band and there are literally zero acts that I want to see that I haven’t already. Are you kidding me?! You go from R.E.M. The Beastie Boys and Phil Lesh and Friends to Death Cab, Theivery Corporation and Slightly Stoopid? They better have an ace in the hole (or four) that they’re revealing later.

I mean, we’ve got Girl Talk, Umphreys and Cold War Kids who I love, but every other one of these bands have something in common. They’re the “Hey, it’s 3:00, let’s make a sandwich and sit down a for a while b/c we don’t really care enough to stand up for this band” dream team.
I was so prepared to have a “Here’s all the reasons I’m going to Langerado over Phish that weekend” post, but Jesus, this is just a piss-poor line-up by any stretch of the imagination:

Death Cab For Cutie • Thievery Corporation (Live) • Slightly Stoopid • Ryan Adams and the Cardinals • Dashboard Confessional • The Pogues • Matisyahu • Flogging Molly • Michael Franti & Spearhead • Broken Social Scene • Cafe Tacuba • Umphrey’s McGee • The Disco Biscuits • Robert Randolph & The Family Band • Pepper • The Faint • Cold War Kids • Steel Pulse • Public Enemy • Gym Class Heroes • Tricky • Girl Talk • Chromeo • Mute Math • Bad Brains • Ozomatli • Against Me! • George Clinton & Parliament / Funkadelic • Tortoise • DeVotchKa • Black Kids • Grupo Fantasma • Holy F*ck • Budos Band • Tokyo Police Club • Lotus • The Virgins • The Gaslight Anthem • King Khan and the Shrines • Lucero • Murs • Ra Ra Riot • Tortured Soul • Rebelution • K’Naan • The Egg • Zac Brown Band • Tigercity • The Aggrolites • Cloud Cult • Spam Allstars • Rachel Goodrich • Blue King Brown • The Heavy Pets • Awesome New Republic • The Postmarks • Suenalo Sound System • Live Painting by LEBO

What do we do now? Crash the Phish reunion stop in Hampton or settle for this mediocre line-up?

    This line up doesn’t even make me want to travel to Miami in the middle of Chicago winter, that’s how lame it is.

    It’s so bad I’d go from warm Miami to Icy Chicago to get away from it. I just emailed Meghan from Madison House to tell her we love them, but this line-up needs headliners. She assured me more great artists are coming out later, but unless they have like Jay-Z, Timberlake and Weezer hidden somewhere, no thanks…

    I would at least get up from my sandwich for some Girl Talk, but this lineup only strengthens my resolve to find Phish tickets. Who’s got my extra? (Hanging my head in shame)

    don’t ever come to australia then. we’ve just had a few festivals with some of those same acts as headliners and then the rest of the bill is whatever local pubs bands they could dredge up for the day.

    Wow… that is really disappointing…

    At least the Gym Class Heroes will be there but if I were at that festival, I don’t even think I’d see Matis because of how disappointing he’s been at every show I’ve seen him.
