kinda slim pickins when The Tallest Man on Earth and 3rd tier Ninjatune people are the best they can muster for an "update"

Wow, what a completely uninspiring list of bands. The first announcement was kind of boring but this is just sad.

Everyone needs to read the initial post before commenting. I'm pretty sure all the complaints were already made.

As suspect: the lineup are pretty much friends of the organizers. The "bigger" bands, such as Hold Steady and Sunset Rubdown, will have limited space for passes.

"blues control, ducktails, grooms/muggabears, sightings, and kurt vile are all awesome. "

And they all play locally all the time. Why pay $45?
