I thought I had no real conflicts this year, but I of course was only looking at music. There are a couple things going on in the Cinema Tent that actually make me reconsider some of the musical acts I plan to see. There's a Reggie Watts thing with a silent movie going on Saturday night but it conflicts with Alice Cooper. It seems like this would be less of a pain to get into than the Comedy tent to see Reggie. There's also an Alice Cooper thing in the Cinema tent earlier that night that conflicts with Danzig/Misfits. However I guess neither of these conflicts are too "brutal." I'll always side with music over any type of screening, even a screening that involves a live Reggie Watts musical score.
Mogwai/Danzig Legacy. I know which one I SHOULD choose... but damnit, Glenn Danzig doing Misfits and early solo stuff, even if he is a horrible flake... Can't pass it up. I probably won't stay the entire set, though. 80s to early/mid 90s solo Danzig is all I care about, nothing else.
I'm gonna be pissed if I get to Mogwai's set and they've already done "Hunted By A Freak". I listened to the Peel Session version of that song so many times in high school.
Sunday is an absolute clusterquack for me, nearly all day:
Black Lips vs. Grouplove War On druqs vs. Antlers vs. City and Colour vs. Beach Boys Joy Formidable vs. Kurt Vile vs. Bon Iver vs. BF5 Young the Giant vs. the Shins vs. fun.
The good thing, I guess, is that I'm going with a group and that I really don't have to worry about ending up at a concert I truly don't want to be at. They'll be able to pick from that group, pretty sure no one likes Mac Miller lmao. Here are my other conflicts:
Superjam vs. Art vs. Science SBTRKT vs. Santigold vs. Puscifer Major Lazer vs. Blackstar Also spending most of Thursday in This Tent means I probably miss out on Phantogram, Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr., and The Bronx
