why is X so low on the bill? None of those bands would exist had "Los Angeles" never been recorded.

Alice Bag Band? Hell yeah! Where is X-Ray Spex? Bummer about Poly Styrene. :(

anonymous1 hour ago why is X so low on the bill? None of those bands would exist had "Los Angeles" never been recorded. Read this as "Shit gimmick seeks cred."

no way jawbreaker is a headliner to close out fest. I mean reunion is great but I'd say maybe 500 people at that first are old enough to even know who they are. great reunion but def no headliner to a fest this size.

Who's singing for Bad Brains, the wackadoo (HR) or the guy who actually gives a shit about his mind (Israel Joseph)? Why do promoters keep booking this doneass band? This band sucks so bad their last good album came out in '93 with their singer's replacement?
