Not bad. Solid top of the line if you like jamming/improv music. Don't know most of the lower half bands but I'm out of touch.
You aren't out of touch, the bottom half bands are all nasty just waiting for that big break and semi local with Tauk, Fikus, ShwizZ, ShwiKus is FiKus and ShwizZ all together, The Main Squeeze (Randy Jackson produced their last album), Solaris, Mun, Functional Flow, Cocktail Party Phenomenon, The Hornitz, Consider the Source are at that level just waiting to burst IMHO
Anyone have thoughts between this and vibes if I can only realistically do one?
I have been to the last 3 Chills and will be going to my first Vibes this year. Chill lineup has more up and comers then Vibes but I don't think you can go wrong either way. Feel free to ask me any related questions as I can at least give you half the info you need hahahahaha
