Clue # 7: Eric B's partner Is paid in full with pesos On the Harlem streets
Likely answers: A$AP Rocky. There's literally no question. Yes, he's also in Sweden or Denmark or some other weird country that weekend, but he can easily play both festivals two days apart. You know, planez bro. And no, it's definitely not f*cking Steve Martin.
I wouldn't say no to a free drink, but you're right that we probably will never know definitely. Besides I unfortunately doubt I'll be on the farm this year, which is too bad since I'm a big fan of Steve Martin.

I love how the original post evolves. Clues 1 and 2 just list the "likely answers" and the link to the discussion of each clue. But by clue 3 Jugs. has started a little commentary. Then at clue 9 he blames himself for the grammar argument that ensued with an "Oh God it burns" disclaimer. It this wasn't posted at 11am I'd say there was drinking involved.
I said this on the Clue 3 thread, but I'll repeat it here: I think it might be Sufjan Stevens.
Joy on the north end (he just did an Xmas tour -- North Pole) Spiritual shaking abounds (notorious for his stage fright) But does one believe? (religious guy - lots of spiritual allusions. Also: unicorns.)
Purity Ring, I guess? There were literally no other guesses that made sense. It doesn't really fit with the Galway bit, but who cares.
Just wanted to point out that it fits really well, imo - if you disagree that's cool but I wasn't sure if you may have just missed it because I know I missed it at first - whoever mentioned this in the thread wasn't terribly clear about it, so I didn't realize how well it fit until I actually looked at a map of Ireland. The region called the Claddagh, where the ring originated, is literally the shores of Galway. I think the second and third lines of that clue are just giving us the word "ring" since the first line gave us "purity."
I don't know how we'd bet on it unless they reveal the answer to the clues, which they've never done. (I don't think?) I wouldn't be surprised to see him there in some capacity, but I don't think he's the answer to that clue. Tell you what though, if they release the clue answers and #7 is Steve Martin, I'll buy you a beer.
I heard somewhere that they're going to reveal the answers this year. Don't ask me where, I don't have a clue.
