Gearing up for Barswick/Lattimore tonight. I'm not 100% but think I can jack myself up on meds enough to make it through the show. I'll see if I can get the lowdown on if either is playing the fest proper.
Somewhere around here you'll find a conversation where steveternal introduced me to Supersilent. This was years ago and the NyQuil is still in effect and I can't remember where. Don't take my word for it. Blame him.

Seems like both VIP and Premiere get you in first... unless there is a difference between "Priority entrance at all non-seated venues" (VIP) and "'Jump to the front' line access at all venue GA entrances, subject to capacity" (Premiere). I remember a few capacity issues from last year, but I can't remember if they happened 10+ minutes before the show (which is as far as the VIP guarantee goes... and that's just for the 'seated' venues). I'm definitely going to do the premiere because of the lines I stood in last year... but I'm going to need to think a bit longer about that price hike for VIP.

Latest FB post states, "As we're amping up for this week's lineup announcement..." I think the hint there is "amping." Amping is an anagram for "Pigman," which we all know is a track by the Subhumans. That track was on their 1985 album "Worlds Apart," which is a title shared by Canadian prog band SAGA. Therefore the latest hint is SAGA. The lineup just keeps getting better and better.

Yeah... if I remember correctly, they didn't drop hints on Philip Glass, Laurie Anderson, Andrew Bird, Sunn O))), Tony Conrad (RIP), Faust, Kamasi Washington, Marc Ribot, Wolf Eyes, etc... Yo La Tengo was held till the day before the announcement, as well. Wednesday can't come soon enough.
