Normally when you are 63, it is kind of time to put on a shirt. But I do have to say the dude has kept himself in pretty good shape...

Lame show. Why isn't The Weekend or Passion Pit playing this fest?!?

I heard iggy on wtf with Marc maron, might have to check him out pretty cool interview. This guy has met a lot of the older rockers, partridge family et al.

Perhaps this is the most exciting music events in Canada where great singer comes together to perform.

Look folks, another ageist who thinks someone should do ____ when they turn ___ years old.

Kudos to Iggy for having a better torso then most men half his age and younger.

If anyone should put on a shirt it's that fat fuck from Fucked Up.

I love how it's ok for FU boy to show his bitchtits and Buddha belly but fuck maybe it's time for Iggy Pop to put on a shirt even though Iggy has taken care of himself throughout his career and makes FU boy look like Meatloaf from Fight Club. Fuck off.

No Cold Caves ? :(

I think Iggy Pop is on a speed diet.

Let me explain, D at 2:52 AM...I am saying "the dude has kept himself in pretty good shape". I did not say (or, mean to imply) anything otherwise. I mean you can look back at pictures of him from 30 years ago and they look the same.

Posted by Joshua Sanders | August 9, 2013 9:28 AM

Do you think D is attracted to Iggy? I mean dude is on the record as being into old women, and Iggy kind of looks like an old woman.

Hey D, why don't you suck a guy's dick off forever, you lurk-ass herb.

D's been posting like a fucking madman recently. C-Town layoffs? McDonald's bring back the free wi-fi? What's the deal?

Stupid Denver gets this amazing lineup but NYC is stuck with Governor's Ball and Kings of Leon. The fuck?

he's cool

Iggy & the Stooges were a truly revolutionary band -- full of in-your-face attitude blending rock, early punk and a dose of psychedelic stuff. This album is a good example ... excellent!

yeah - really hoped the bad weather would pass through quickly....but, noooooooo.

I seriously almost disliked this just because of the drummer. OMG what a douche!

if you know what movie this music video was based on i will love you forever

I sometimes forget that Ira has a really good voice and a sly droll sense of humor. Yo La Tengo should be SO much bigger and everyone should see them do 'The Story Of Jazz' live at least once!
