Yeah, most of the venues are within 3-4 blocks of each other. The bigger shows (like Yo La Tengo and Mountain Goats) tend to reach capacity and be tough to get into, but there are usually only a few of those. You should be fine to get there 30 minutes before the show in almost all cases.

Most clubs didn't hit capacity last year. They have more big names this year, but they also added more venues, so hopefully that balances out. Just show up early if it's something you can't live without seeing. If you get shut out, though, there's usually 3-4 other things going on anyway. So many conflicts, but that's inevitable with a set up like this.
1. Sunn O))) 2. JAMC 3. Liars 4. Built to Spill 5. Lambchop 6. Kevin Drumm 7. Screaming Females 8. Chris Forsyth + Koen Holtkamp 9. Death Grips 10. Thee Oh Sees
They added The Men last year. That alone says something.
I got my bus ticket Friday. Needless to say .. This IS ON. EDIT: Greyhound has been running a $20 advance ticket to everywhere I've been going as of late. $20 is way cheaper than I can drive for. Great deal. Especially if you get an express bus and not a local.
Burglar Fucker - Lightning Bolt if they grew up on Flat Duo Jets. That is to say, noise-rock with a heavy rockabilly influence. Their EP was one of my favorite releases of 2011. burglarfucker.bandcamp.com/
