But let me explain Shudder to Think. There are bands that I ♥ that I only discovered either after they were broken up or some singer that was dead (think Jeff Buckley here... who did a song w/ Shudder to Think oddly enough) so I never got to see them. StT broke up a few years before I stumbled across them. I've linked ya'll to vids of theirs before and it was one of those things that was always in the back of my mind that I never got to see these guys.
NOW I FUCKING GET TO!
I know that NIN and STP are headlining two days and that's awesome and all that but I've seen them before (NIN at least four times I think) but I've never seen Dashboard Confessional either so that makes me really happy. And Cold War Kids! I know the icon is apparent so, yeah, Panic at the Disco is going to be there too.
Now if MSI would just sign up. They usually play every year but this marks the second year they're not as far as I know.
Ya'll don't even know how happy I am. I've already made plans to not have Trevor all weekend for this. See Frank holding the Xbox? Dude, that doesn't even compare to how much I'm going to be cheesing when I get my three day pass :D
ETA: HOLY SHIT! How could I miss this?!? I was just going over the list with oops_in_the_apt and I read The Gutter Twins and it was liek w0ah!
Gutter Twins is Greg Dulli's band after The Afghan Whigs broke up. Afghan Whigs was my obsession for about three or four years (think about me with FOB and you'll know). Til this day one of my points of pride is that I got to see them at the Shim Sham (now One Eyed Jacks where I got to 80's night) for seven bucks. I ended up in the E.R. the next day cause I was so sick but I went anyway and stood a little over a foot away from him and watched him play, nearly passing out a few times but thankfully Erik held me up.
This is going to be the best Voodoo EVER!
