Are the only requirements for this fest being black and willing to play?

What does D'Angelo have to do with 'punk'? What does Meshell Ndegeocello have to do with 'punk'?

Oh I know, you could stretch the definition of punk to fit whatever, but again... what's the point? Why not just call it black music fest?

100% chance D'Angelo cancels last minute

Awful except Body Count. I'll pass. Like I always pass.

Living Colour > all these bands.

Afro Punk is a great festival. I attended last year- the scene reminded me of the first Lollapalooza.

I would be very surprised if D'Angelo cancels. He has connections to the people who run this festival.

Bullshit it sucks if it was so good why is it always free?

Yeah the first Lollapalooza, the first co-opting of a culture Perry The Poser Farrell was never part of. That didn't have one real hardcore punk band. So Lollapalooza '91 can eat a dick.

what day is d'angelo playing (if he actually makes it)? I could care less about the rest of the bill.

Nah but I bet your panties are.

Posted by D | June 25, 2014 12:20 PM

Perry Farrell turned his back on hardcore.

I'm going for the internet.

Body Count is awful. If Ice-T weren't in the band, no one would care about them.

Posted by Anonymous | June 25, 2014 1:46 PM

^in the African American community, Grimes is sometimes referred to as 'Soul Sista #1'.

I wonder how Death Grips would go over at this.

Shut the fuck up D. You're a douche.

Eat a dick 3:02pm. I'll post whenever and whatever about whoever I want.

Just relax, fake D. We know you lack creativity, but there's no reason for you to lack civility. We worry about you, kid. Just take it in stride, I'm sure he didn't mean you any harm.

^ Tell that to the guy who called me a name.

I lack creativity? And yet I was so creative you felt the need to reply to me.

You can eat a dick, too, and I'm no kid, kid.

Posted by D | June 26, 2014 12:58 PM

^ see what I mean, kids? That is not the voice of D, that is the voice of a try-2-hard neckbeard

Posted by Anonymous | June 26, 2014 1:16 PM

Nah it's me and I'm pretty sure everyone in comments is sick of your endless ¨fake D¨ ^ posts.

Posted by D | June 26, 2014 2:13 PM

D you ever listen to the classic The Coward Of The County? You remind me of Tommy. You can hear a pin drop, when D walked into the post city, and locked the door.

fake D is a dickrider

Posted by Anonymous | June 26, 2014 2:28 PM

2:17pm you ever listen to Living Colour's first three albums Vivid, Time's Up, and Stain? I did and still do, and I'd rather listen to one of those albums than sit through a set of any of these ¨Afro-Punk¨ bands save Body Count and maybe Fishbone out of morbid curiousity.
