ouch. while that is a very varied lineup, it doesnt hide the fact that it is complete shit. cant see why anyone from within a two hour radius would travel to that show, other than because the sun exists in florida during march.

A BV post that could have mentioned King Khan (also on the bill) but doesn't. Never thought I'd see the day. Actually there are a number of BV regulars who didn't make that release.

As to 8:24, that's probably true. But as one who is indeed within that two hour radius, I'm able to get myself excited about a Death Cab/BSS/Public Enemy/P-Funk/Girl Talk/King Khan/Pogues/Bad Brains/Chromeo/Holy Fuck/Cloud Cult/whoever else I can't think of fest. Probably not worth the money, and I've seen most of the acts I want to see already (in NYC at better venues and for cheaper prices no less)... but shit, the sun exists in Florida during March, so why not?

Some have to remember that the furthest south that these bands go is Orlando. It's really rare to see any of these bands in South Florida (about once every two years). Although I'm not super pumped about this lineup there are a couple of bands I've been meaning to see.

"Some have to remember that the furthest south that these bands go is Orlando."

If that. It's gotten to the point where I'm surprised if somebody has an FL date at all. I remember way back in the day (like 97 [!!!]) when you had Lolla and Horde and whatnot, and you knew that a third of the bands weren't going to play the South Florida dates. And whether you went or not depended on which third it was. Good times, good times.

PS: Let's not forget - if anyone but Radiohead headlined, this would blow APW away. And yes, that's setting the bar pretty low, but still...

Yeah too bad the F train doesn't go that far south..

I lived in South FL for 9 years. Believe me, for residents of S. FL who like decent music, the Langerado festival is a miracle. Bands rarely travel as far south as Miami.

Are there Japanese people in Miami?

If only none of those bands would play, this would be fun.

Shenanigans. Almost all of these bands are great live and it costs 120 bucks. Everyone who goes to this is going to have a blast.

Langerado shit the bed when they moved to a non-camping venue. I'm all for varying the jam-heavy lineup... but not with Snoop, Ryan Adams, Death Cab, etc... pretty much the biggest collection of B-stage acts on the major festie circuit. I was really hoping Langerado could play with the big boys but this is a major step down from last year. Oh well.
