Rothbury Thursday Preview

thursday@ZackTeibloom Thursday night’s forecast at Rothbury: Cool. The overnight low is 56 degrees, but with Cool Kids and Cold War Kids, if I was at Rothbury, I’d be straight chillin’ at the Sherwood Court stage. I’m sure I’d wander quite a bit if I was there to make sure Keller and the Disco Biscuits weren’t as repetitive as I remember, but I’d advise camping out by Sherwood Ct.

Before I got there, I’d start the night at The Ranch Arena for some Toubab Krewe. You know the hippies will be dancing funky to their set if it’s anything like this Bonnaroo 2006 video:

The name Gift of Gab jumps off the page for me in the Quannum All-stars. I’d be far more curious about these collection of rappers over Keller’s set. Gift of Gab’s “Alphabet Aerobics” is so fast I had to close my eyes at Lolla 2006 just to catch the lyrics.

As the Michigan night gets chilly, put on your hoodie and make your way over to Cool Kids, Chicago’s most underrated rappers. Even if you’re a Disco Biscuits fan you can still see their whole set before you get your untz on.

Close the opening night getting cooler than cool, ice cold with Cold War Kids. I saw them at SXSW and was pretty impressed. They’re one of those bands where you don’t know you know half their catalog until you see them. If you’re into The DB I’m not going to convince you to see Cold War Kids, but I still don’t see how Disco Biscuits are at all enjoyable without Molly*.

Suggested schedule:

6:45-8:15: Toubab Krewe
9:00- 11:30: Quannum All-stars
Midnight-12:45: Cool Kids
1:15-close: Cold War Kids

*Bring on the hate you parrot-on-the-shoulder, sideways-hat-wearing, goofy-ass Biscuit fans. Bring it on. (I can’t believe I just hated on my sister’s favorite non-Phish/Dead band on her birthday.)
