Bonnaroo 2012 Rumored Lineup

18 Jan

Take this with a grain of salt, but Glide Magazine, a somewhat reputable source (in that they’ve correctly predicted the majority of the lineup the last few years) has compiled a list of the rumored headliners for Bonnaroo this year.  And: Wow.  The headliners:  Paul McCartney, Lady Gaga, Fleet Foxes, Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Eagles, Phish, Radiohead and Prince.  Not to mention the hundred or so other bands that always frequent these festivals regardless of year, like Avicii, Childish Gambino, Pretty Lights, Girl Talk, etc.  I never thought I’d love Bonnaroo only because I always thought of it as strictly a hippy jamband fest, but that’s clearly no longer been the case over the last few years with the lineups, which feature bands for every type of music.  Official lineup and tickets go on sale in mid-February.  After the jump, I included the full article with more lineup news.   Continue reading

Skirt Jam of the Week – Flo Rida – Good Feeling

2 Dec

I really want to hate Flo Rida.  He completely rips off some euro or house music song that has been around for months and loudly raps over it, and he is rewarded with millions and millions of dollars.  In this case, he blatantly takes the hook from Pretty Lights “Finally Moving,” speeds it up and raps over it, and creates…an awesome song. There’s no way you can listen to this and not want to immediately go to a bar and party for about 10 hours.  Since it’s Friday, it’s a worthy choice.  Enjoy the weekend.

Skirt Jam of the Week – Pretty Lights – I Know the Truth

27 Sep

Over the weekend I went to Popped Philadelphia, a two-day concert festival featuring a bunch of bands including Foster The People, Girl Talk, and Pretty Lights.  Foster the People, probably my favorite band of the moment, put on a great show playing pretty much all of their songs (they only have one album), showing great energy throughout.  Then Girl Talk came on and…wow.  For anyone who immediately dismisses him as “just some guy who plays songs”….go see a show in person, believe me.  Finally, after what I thought were an impossible two acts to follow, Pretty Lights came on.  I’d heard some of his songs before but always figured they’d be way better live, and I was right.  Unbelievable.  It’s tough to choose one, but since everyone is probably more familiar with his hits like Hot Like Sauce and Finally Moving, I thought I’d put up another good one, I Know the Truth, from Bonnaroo this year.  It’s a little hard to fully appreciate these songs just from a YouTube video, since when you’re in person you get the full effect of the light show and stadium audio (and the 25 beers you drank before). Either way, after this weekend I’ve decided I’m going to quit being a legitimate human being and just spend the next 3-4 years touring the country going to festivals like this, so it’s been nice knowing everyone.  DJStrongIsland will be posting in my absence.  See everyone in 2015.
