In a random last minute looking for something to do moment, I saw them at MSG last Spring, and I totally thought they were great! On their 2nd album they completely embraced an over the top Vegas vibe, and it gave them a solid identity in the U2 pop rock flavored mega stadium scene. I would totally enjoy them at Roo, a sparkly after dark glitter set full of fist pounding anthems would be a lot of fun to me... and they bring tons of confetti too!!! That said, I am voting take it or leave it because though they fit nicely into my love for a certain amount of cheeze factor in my arena rock, they may not be quite what they Roo crowd is looking for in a band But, no matter how many times they overplay When You Were Young on the radio , I will always happily sing along with pure retro-teenage passion ;D

Hells yes! I've seen em twice (the second time Bono was in attendance) and they're fun. Sure, not a traditionally Bonnaroo-type band, but Franz Ferdinand went over well, and the Killers are even more interesting than them.

there really not that good but there not that bad ehh take em or leave em. im pissed there headlining the echo project it would be fine if they were the headliners but i dont think they have earned a headlining spot
i checked em out becaue i figured if they are billed above phil at echo project they must be some good shiz. wrong! i couldnt even listen to their myspace stuff. dont want to be harsh or negative but that is some of the shiztiest radio pop crap ive ever had the misfortune to hear. looks like ill be listening to a dicks pick and getting drunk at camp during the top billed act at echo project. what an atrocity to even have them at a fest. let alone headlining. and its straight sacrilege to have them billed above phil. that wasnt harsh or negative was it? to each their own. but i just cant take it. PLEASE STAY AWAY FROM ROO!!!! i would normally just say no thanks and not go on the attack. but damn, they earned an attack.
