In 2004 some of the most amazing bands, ok THE CURE to name one, played and I was about to have my baby on the other side of the world. I fell into a deep depression for a week with sadness that I was missing it.
Some bands I am thrilled about, in no particular order and on various days:
jesus and mary chain
silversun pickups (this one's for my sister lisa)
the decemberists (thanks, rachael)
ghostface killah (only because I love to play that worm on dreamcast)
crowded house (lisa, you really should come)
Paul van Dyk (for mike)
red hot chili peppers
7 HOUR DRIVE AND ONLY FRIDAY'S LINE-UP HAS TICKET AVAILABILITY.
Not sure how I feel about the effort needed to go and my level of love for the bands on the only available day...
