holy tranny music

I'm guessing they mean the "Heavier Stage" just weighs more than the Pop-punk stage.

Catalepsy is shit.

definitely not enough power outlets to plug in hair straighteners. will need to bring in generators.

anonymous

The only good band on here is Dir en grey. The other bands don't deserve to play with them.

anonymous
1/4/2012 5:09:42 AM
Other than Comeback Kid..........ugh. Obligatory "Emmure should be on this" comment.

anonymous
1/4/2012 5:21:31 AM
comeback kid isn't pop punk and they aren't rock and this isn't a good vestifal and if i ever see any of you in real life i'll grab your dick with my knee cap

1/4/2012 5:56:28 AM
Won't be there. Don't fight me.

anonymous
1/4/2012 6:13:39 AM
This fes give me a big shit big fxxk
DIR EN GREY deserve play in better festival.Dont wanna see their music mix with some punks pops music of these shit bands

1/4/2012 6:15:58 AM
lol pretty much every band on the 'heavier' stage needs to be on the pssy stage as is.

anonymous
1/4/2012 6:35:52 AM
How do you make a shitty fest even shittier? Add Dir En Grey to the lineup.

1/4/2012 7:22:46 AM
Someday a real rain will come and wash all this scum off the fests.

anonymous
1/4/2012 7:46:28 AM
I would rather chop my own c-ck off than to be in attendance at this.

1/4/2012 9:18:49 AM
I hope God shits a nuke on Texas for this event on behalf of Kim Jon Il's passing away

I like how it says "Heavier stage" and the first 2 bands are Asking Alexandria and We Came As Romans. If that's heavy, I'm going to stab the Pillsbury doughboy in the armpit with a rusty screwdriver. Born of Osiris is the only good band on this so far. FTFD should just play nothing but their first album, then they'll be good again.

anonymous
1/4/2012 12:22:20 PM
why would you ever pay 42.25 to see any of these guys in Shit Texas. Why not just drive to Austin and watch all these bands play other shows at south by?

anonymous
1/4/2012 1:55:52 PM
Why is this on Lambgoat?

anonymous
1/4/2012 1:58:28 PM
Most of those bands on the Heavier Stage all sound the same. Dir en grey is the only one that stands out.

anonymous
1/4/2012 3:12:17 PM
I hope Dir en grey drops out of this. They don't deserve to be associated with such shitty music/bands.

anonymous
1/4/2012 4:52:51 PM
I agree, Dir en Grey should quit this one. The crowd at this kind of festival doesn't have the mental capacity to appreciate their musical prowess

anonymous
1/4/2012 6:11:40 PM
This is fcking gross. If I buy a slushee can I watch Such Gold & CBK?

1/4/2012 6:20:17 PM
what if i've only got $42?

1/4/2012 7:27:04 PM
I like the early november.

1/5/2012 10:57:10 AM
Next week: Bands whine when SXSW denies them to ever play their annual event again because they agreed to play a fest whose name makes fun of them.

anonymous

Hop Topic kids that pretend they don't shop at Hot Topic will be stoked.
