That jonny greenwood post is just because of steven reich. Thatjonnygreenwoodpostisjustbecauseofstevenreich. Thatjonnygrnwdpst... <hyperventilating into paper bag>
Totally. He has been performing it without Greenwood. I really think its an Music for 18 Musicians show or a 9/11 WTC show.
I also stated studying past schedules and venues. It's becoming a lot more real. I know we had said it was $100 in the past ( and were right, sort of). They offered two different passes. The cheap one included all the venues but the Tennessee and Bijou Theaters. Those were $250 to get into for all of them.

I actually ended up making a judgement call and skipped him at Hopscotch. Seeing Tom Carter earlier in the day reminded me I needed to be at Charalambides. That Saturday was the worst for me. He would be a "must-see".

That does sound brutal. I've never seen Cale before, but I'd kill for the chance! I saw Lou Reed at Lolla 09 and was pretty much the only person there for him. Most people were staking out spots for The Killers. Meanwhile I was going apeshit on the front row. I'm really hoping that Capps pulls through with Cale for Big Ears! I really think this lineup is gonna be breathtaking

Saw John Cale and Chris Spedding together many years ago in a hole-in-the-wall in D.C. Very laid back and resplendent affair. A friend said he saw Lou Reed come in and sit in the back, but I didn't see him.
I almost forgot. This was included in one of the facebook comments. I will wait here while GL's head explodes at the possibilities.
"#BE2014 focuses on artistic collaboration & exploration - blurring the lines of genre norms."
FUUUUUUUUUU. So that Greenwood thing may have been a tease.
EDIT: I just woke up from an old man nap where Terry Riley and John Cale played Church of Anthrax in its entirety. Cale went on to pay homage to Lou Reed by covering Metal Machine Music in full (w/ guests).
"Legendary modern classical composer Steve Reich will be the centerpiece of the 2014 Big Ears Festival, which will be presented in downtown Knoxville March 28-30. Reich will be joined by a number of musicians, including Radiohead guitarist Jonny Greenwood."
