no truck festival coverage?

Posted by Anonymous | May 4, 2010 1:15 PM

Yeah sad no truck festival coverage. Friday night was a blast. Sadly underattended but the bands/venue/organization were all incredible. I really hope they do it again next year!

Posted by Anonymous | May 4, 2010 1:29 PM

Considering who is playing for free on this calendar, and the fact that they already have a pricy Radio City gig, and they just had those two special Bell House gigs, it would have been nice if the National show for Prospect Park was free. But considering it SOLD OUT so far in advance is more proof of knowing they have a salivating fan base. Sheeeeit.

So Sonic Youth is free?

Posted by Anonymous | May 4, 2010 1:48 PM

Metric / Joan as Police Woman / Holly Miranda?!!?

SHIT YEP!

Great line-up. Especially Bitches Brew Revisited, Texas Tornados, Dr. Lonnie Smith, Sonic Youth, and Allen Toussaint.

Pretty awesome ... yes Sonic Youth is free.

Posted by Burg | May 4, 2010 3:36 PM

yea, nice line up, better than last year...

Wow, I thought it was a pretty lame line-up, considering what's going down at Metrotech and Summerstage. I think they blew their wad on Norah Jones. Shoulda been the flaming lips!

too bad the bathroom situation sucks -- you end up standing in line for half the time you're there trying to catch the show. waste of time.

Flaming Lips already played Prospect Park (albeit not as headliners). Time for new blood.

jambands run shit

Jones appeals most of all to two groups: Moms, and aging hipsters who feel like they really “appreciate” talented musicians. Luckily the Bandshell is on the edge of Park Slope, a haven for both of these demographics.

Thanks,

Siamese Dream and Mellon Collie were really good albums. Got them when they came out, still throw them on at times and think they're great. It saddens me when I hear bands from that era when I was a teenager and hear their new stuff and it's so clear how they've lost it, they sound desperate to recapture a sound/magic that they haven't had in 15 years (holy shit).... And then I realize that is not unlike a lot of us.
