Harsh Truth

Ever Felt Had?
I had a feeling about this for some strange reason.

Cue additional late summer/fall US dates.

Moz joins the D list acts.
Misfits that were unknown when they were together is the big headline.
Ill be surprised if this even takes place.
Moz is out place here, probably will end up walking off stage if it happens.

No way this is a meat-free event. I could smell Portillo's hot dogs from here.

Writers on the storm
It's times like these I miss living in Chicago. Not the walking backwards into a 50 mile an hour wind when it is 10 below zero in the winter, or melting like an ice cube on a burning sidewalk in the summer. The weather in September should make for an excellent outdoor musical experience.

I would be most interested to see Juliette Lewis & the Licks perform. She was on Howard Stern and mentioned her band. Most actors want to be in a band, but I always liked her as a person. She seems down to earth and up for anything.

Do you normally add piss to your cereal or was today a special occasion?

D-List acts?? Just because you don't even know 90 percent of the bands playing does not make them D List; I've always dreamed of Moz playing this festival. This fest has been the best music festival in the country hands down.

If I recall correctly, a recent TTY post stated that live shows would be suspended indefinitely until there was a new record deal/new material to promote. He could have changed his mind for various reasons, but I can't help wondering whether bigger news is on the way.

Probably got a new tax bill. Expect him to conveniently forget that he's vowed never to play the UK again at some point in the next couple of years, as well. Anyway, there's no way he'll do at least one isolated festival show, so there will at least be some warm up dates around September. Don't know if I can be arsed to go to a festival - they generally suck.

That's because you have yet to attend Riot Fest.

Hell yes (an alkaline trio reference)

Aside from moz I'd love to see

The descendants (good god they've got a new album coming out yay)

Social distortion

Brand new (love the album god and the devil are raging inside me)

Slater Kinney

Deftones

The specials

Girls against boys

Death cab

Nofx

Thursday ( again hell yes that's gonna a great show)

Glassjaw ( just wow)

Meat puppets

Leftover crack

White lung

Sure some of these are slated for the Denver show but I hope they play all of them or both at this point

Bands that can be missed with malice

The misfits

Refused (who are terrible and have been coasting on new noise now for over a decade or two)

Death grips

Morrissey would be in great company here and at Least a few of the bands openly love him or his music

I know for Morrissey this is easy. A 20 minute set and only a 3 hour flight from L.A., but does he even have any fans left outside of California?
I hope this doesn't end up like that festival in I think some place like New Hampshire last summer that had the crowd completely disinterested and chanting KFC...KFC....KFC. Chicago and Denver people sure love their meat. Anonymous-

Saw Bob Mould in Manchester earlier this year, he is fantastic!
I like him alright. Don't really care for husker du but sugar was good. Wouldn't mind seeing his set at all along with the dandy war holes in Denver. Saw them play a New Years Christmas show and they were good

Misfits unknown? Have you been living under a rock for 30 years? probably the most famous American hardcore band of all time. You see that crimson skull logo literally everywhere. Now, Morrissey walking off is a possibility because the last couple of year have been a mudfest and I don't think he'll take too kindly to mud being thrown at the stage which I'm sure will happen. But Elvis Costello headlines one night last year and he did fine, so…
