Like the ADD idiot that I am I bought tickets for the wrong day, but because I am a Ticketmaster.com member they helped correct the problem just this one time.
If I had $478.13 I would most likely go all three days, but because I haven't been working (thanks economy) I had to pick one. Although Beastie Boys intrigue me greatly they're from Brooklyn and so had to boycott this one time. Instead I'm going Sunday to see all the bands I have yet to see live, with the exception of MGMT which does not count.
So the line up includes (with commentary):
Coldplay - makes me think of my wedding
Echo & the Bunnymen - makes me think of the divorce following it
MGMT - I wont drink/smoke/swallow/snort/eat anything before them
the Black Keys - meeting the drummer no matter what
Elbow - not too excited "boring"
Silversun Pickups - finally after hearing them blasting in the AM I get to see them live
Mogwai - if I do not hear "the sun is too loud" stoned I will be upset
We Are Scientists - eh they're "catchy"
Ghostland Observatory - will make out with my Lolita sunglasses to "sad sad city": boy or girl
the Gaslight Anthem - there always has to be that token band from NJ that you listen to on the low and never tell your NYC friends about.
Etienne De Crecy - Guido Fist Pump!!
Lykke Li - if I am wasted by the time her set goes up I apologize now for the drunk phone calls and 143 text messages I might send but I can't help it "it always you I'm thinking of"
Akron/Family - apparently they have a following
Steel Train - WTF? We already have a token NJ band!
Kitty, Daisy and Lewis - listen to "Going up the Country", it's better than Elvis
La Roux - should I go slutty or not slutty?
Hey Champ - I want to be in their music video
PT Walkley - nothing
$107 isn't bad at all for such a good line up, almost $6.71 per band. Hopefully no steps on me otherwise there will be problems.
PS- Lykke Li if you do a rendition of "Can I kick it?" I may have a seizure.
