@ZackTeibloom Here we go. It’s bracket-filling time. Andy and I decided to Podcrash it up to decide how we would seed these bad boys. Some choices were obvious. It was unanimous that Cee-Lo would take the #1 overall seed. Andy thinks it might be even catchier than “Crazy.” I’m not so sure, but who can topple it? We both wanted Kanye as a 1 seed so he wouldn’t blog about how we were squid brains for not using his “Social Network” preview song. And after seeing LCD and Arcade Fire perform their explosive singles live at Lolla and ACL, they had to fill out the top spots.
From there we went with our gut and tweaked it so we got the first round match-ups we wanted. We’re like the BCS in that way. Do you want to be “Dancing On My Own” with Robyn or doing the “Shutterbug” with Big Boi? Will you be “Ambling” with Yeasayer or “Tighten up” with the Black Keys. You can’t hide from the internet sensation battle between “Bed Intruder Song” vs. “Barbara Streisand.” Uh oh, I’m getting uber-punny. It must be bracket time:
You can either E-mail us your filled out bracket or do it line by line. E-mail Zack@festivalcrashers.com by Monday, December 13th at noon. Remember, this is who you think will win, not who you liked best. Save that for when we vote the songs off round by round.
If you’ve never done this and wanted to pick every favorite, your entry would look like this:
1: Cee-Lo, Black Keys, Arcade Fire, Robyn, LCD Soundsystem, Antonie Dodson, Vampire Weekend, Kanye
2: Cee-Lo, Arcade Fire, LCD Soundsystem, Kanye
3: Cee-Lo, Kanye
We’ll put together a nice prize package for our winner. And I promise you’ll have fun following it for December. The holidays are pretty boring without it. Good luck.
