    Anyone from the San Francisco area going to Outside Lands?

    No, but if anyone from out of state parks in my street, I'll be slashing yer tyres.

    Parking around GGP is bad enough with every cunt from Marin using it as a giant parking-lot before catching the bus downtown, add in 200,000 smug Tom Petty listening gits and the next parking over-flow will be me pissing in yer gas-tank.

    (Although if anyone has any spare tix, I'll be nice.)

    WANT GO!

    Actually might get a chance. My friend's dad is Rob Turner, the guy who started/runs EMG Pickups, so he can get tickets to shows for free. Especially ones that are played by people who use EMGs. Guys like Les Claypool.

    So, yeah...got a chance, but it's kinda slim.

    The tix are ridiculously expensive. I'm only able to go because they were a wedding gift and then only to one day.

    I've opted for Friday: Lyrics Born, Black Keys, Beck & Radiohead.

    I can totally hear Radiohead.

    In my living room.

    Yeah. THAT loud.

    I guess I'm getting (am) old, 'cos festivals don't seem worth it anymore. Short sets, sweaty people, hot sun, overpriced water, crappy sound. Rather try to catch the few acts I want to see individually, in a venue I like. With a few thousand less people.

    However, Coachella did give me the opportunity to see Sonic Youth and the Pixies in one weekend. So, there's that. This didn't have anything on the bill to lure me out among the seeting masses.

    What sucks is that there are 3-4 bands each day I'd wanna see (The Coup, Primus, etc.)... but $75-80 to see 3-4 bands I could see for $10-15 each?

    And as I found out... I got to listen to Radiohead for free thanks to freakish weather conditions. Whilst eating dinner.

    I hope the weather changes tomorrow because if I hear ONE LICK of Tom Petty, I'm filing a complaint...
