  1. you might want to jump back into this post and edit it so Iron and Wine is highlighted in bold. you might want to do that. trust me. in regards to your last post, your mom has my full approval (and tim young is definitely not my favorite) .

  2. Josh Kremer

    In regards to Jesus’s comment, you should also go back and bold Hot Buttered Rum String Band. Trust me on this one buddy! Saw them last year…… my underwear I think.

  3. Corrections have been made. Thanks for the approval Jesus, I can’t believe I forgot Iron&Wine, and I’m glad to hear they’re one of the blessed messengers that you’ve set forth upon the…. oh screw it.

    Yes Josh you were in your underwear at that point.

  4. tom

    haha. i love you jesus and underwear guy. you guys make life funny. also, that line-up is amazing. i would like to use this forum to thank jesus himself, since he is right here anyway and responsible for all of life which includes this beautiful line-up. also, can you get me a woman, jesus? is 21 years of pain not enough? huh?

  5. tom

    i’m sorry. i didn’t mean to sound bitter my father. i still love you

  6. Jesus. I’m so going to be at this damn thing. That’s pretty much every single band that I’ve ever been in love with. It’s probably not going to happen, but I’m booking a hotel room right now.


  7. hehe Jesus knows best lol :O)

  8. dont forget to see Wolfmother at Loll…! you wont be disappointed 😀


  9. Phil

    Way down on the list at 75, boykillboy really deserve checking out. They use the whole synth rocking Bravery formula, but they’re just BETTER. Totally worth going for a huge freak out dance fest. If you’re that way inclined.

  10. I am most definitely always that inclined. Of Montreal has a distinct place in my heart for that very reason.
