incredible time, I don't think I've ever seen a line up like that before... and drugs are legal... seriously... any drug you want any time any place... no heat at all.
wow, it is a pretty good line up. if i were to go, i'd see...
Elvis Costello & the Imposters
Bonnie Raitt (i know she's country, but it's country blues and she's got an amazing set of pipes)
The Neville Brothers
Bela Fleck & The Flecktones
Damian "Jr. Gong" Marley
Dr. John (omg! totally brings back childhood memories. my dad had the best of album and i dig his crazy louisiana styles)
Medeski Martin & Wood
Rebirth Brass Band (but only cuz i miss playing my trombone)
Devotchka (they have a theremin player!!)
Balkan Beat Box (too weird not to pass up)
Electric Eel Shock (Japanese rock/metal/punk bands are the best!)
The Cat Empire (from Melbourne, Australia, my second home)
I've been to this boner zoo and it's a weird scene,
I'm not gonna shit on your thread here, they bring in a lot of great music and so forth - but it is a large scale corporately sponsored event with all that entails.
without getting preachy, there are a lot of festivals this summer.
