FINALLY SOMEONE HAS MENTIONED INCUBUS. Their new stuff may be to mainstream at times but they have put out some good stuff and they are badass jammers. I also love 311...added to this
LCD Soundsystem Roisin Murphy John Butler Trio Galactic Hot Chip Ben Harper Jack Johnson Sir Paul The Marley Kids Dresden Dolls DJ Shadow Eric Clapton Spoon cause I didn't get to see them this year The Mac G. Love The Dead Janis Joplin...I know I'm REALLY getting my hopes up on that one, but a girl can wish right??? Mars Volta Rush The Shins Steve Miller Band
Mars Volta TV On The Radio Explosions in the sky MMJ David Bowie (as headliner) or Prince (as headliner) Pearl Jam (I've got a very good feeling on this one) Dungen (new album is amazing.) Yes (maybe?) The Who (it is 40th anniversary of a certain festival next year) Neil Young (see above) or any of Crosby, Stills, Or Nash.
I reunited Afghan Whigs!!! They just put out a retrospective disc, but have denied any upcoming shows. Did see John Curley (the bassist) play with the Violent Femmes last week in Cincinnati though. That's probably as close as I will get to seeing my beloved Whigs again :-(
John: We don't even understand our own music Spider: It doesn't, does it matter whether we understand it? At least it'll give us . . . strength John: I know but maybe we could get into it more if we understood it

How about ANY band making great things happen at the moment....
Bonnaroo has been signing stale acts in key scheduele spots for a couple of years now. It doesn't seen to be a problem to sign more current acts for Vegoose, and that's not to say that EVERY Bonnaroo act has been stale. Many of the undercard artists have been phenomenal. But "certain" bands/or types of bands seem to be perennial choices for Bonnaroo. Artist choices that aren't on the cutting edge lend to Bonnaroo as more of an annual, lumbering novelty show(i.e. Lolla in the late 90's or Woodstock 99-00) as opposed to a special "What are they gonna do next?" event....

I put this on another thread, but late night thingy Cheese (which for some reason got edited there and I guess will get edited here... to Thingy Cheese? Someone's fairly common name is obscene, yet there's apparently no problem with a word like cocksucker--- go figure? ::)) So anyway... Richard Cheese and Lounge Against the Machine would in my opinion, be an awesome late night good time, and would be a great alternative to the usual late night trippy hippy jammy psychadelic type selections (all of which I love) Definitely check him out should he make a rare appearance in a city near you... Cheesy goodness at it's greatest!
