My only serious conflict will be a real stroke-inducer if I ponder it too much. Gov' Mule vs Galactic on Saturday night. I might just flip a coin or something because whichever one I choose I'd like to be near the front.

i love ALMOST ALL music, here are my conflicts (even though the music may not be similar, these are all bands i want to see)
ryan shaw vs little ones-probably see little ones sam roberts vs stanton moore trio-probably see stanton rodrigo y gabriela vs tea leaf green-probably see rodrigo james blood ulmer vs kyle hollingsworth-probably kyle spearhead vs tom morello-probably tom manu chao vs black keys-probably manu sci vs sts9 vs mago-cheese all the way, my last incident, wouldnt miss it even if i was dead ocms vs dr dog vs the slip-definitely the slip annuals vs warren haynes-this one's isn't hard at all, warren obviously, i'll just have to see how crowded it is damien rice vs hold steady vs xavier rudd-seeing damien in 2 days, saw hold steady a few weeks ago, i like damien the most ben harper vs keller-saw keller solo beginning of may, but with this lineup it'll be better, but ben harper is one of my top acts this year f-lips vs mule vs scott amendola with nels cline vs philly exp-probably just like 30-45 mins of lips, then rest of mule wilco vs decemberists-i wish they didn't crossover at all, it doesn't make sense to me nmas vs ornette vs white stripes-never seen nmas, only like one white stripes song, icky thump of course, ornette sounds like pretty good instrumental jazz

A lot of people I noticed have the same problem as I do of Tea Leaf Green vs Rodrigo y Gabriela. I am assuming some people have seen Rodrigo y Gabriela's live DVD once, and if you have, the one time when I saw them it was kinda similar to that except the crowd was really old and no moshing (of course at bonnaroo this will probably be different). They did one cool thing that wasn't in the DVD though, and that was they played well known songs (wish you were here and hotel california) and the entire crowd sang the song word for word and that was pretty cool. If there are more people then it would be all that much better. But I think that if I see them again it will be pretty repetitive, but the first time I saw them was good (I was also in the front row, so my views are a little biased).
P.S. Thanks for the advice everybody,looking back I can't believe I thought of passing up SCI for STS9.
WEEN vs Harper vs Keller ( WEEN will probably win. May change my mind on my mood. ) Roots vs Black Keys ( Roots will win. Are a must for me. Really wanted to see the Keys though. Ill catch them at Lolla.) FLIPS vs GALACTIC ( really really need help with this one)

I am also really having trouble with flips vs mule vs galatic right now, my friends are going to see galactic this weekend and tell me how good they are live (haven't seen them yet). I think I am leaning a little towards galactic right now, so many special guests and I am sure they will throw something crazy, but this (currently) in my hardest descision as well.
Okay, a question that might help settle my schedule conflict: Does Girl Talk tour the southeast much? Like in Atlanta or Nashville or anywhere like that? Because if I can go see him later in the summer in Atlanta or something, I'd feel a lot better. I'm definitely going to see the Flaming Lips though...the decision has been made! I won't miss that UFO for anything!
If you can make it to Louisville in late July Girl Talk will be playing outdoors on the Ohio River waterfront right after Particle for Forecastle Festival. De La Soul is the night before.

the FLips/Mule dilemma was tough.. made tougher now that Mr. Lif is appearing with Galactic...
there's also Regina Spektor v.s. Gogol Bordello and Ben Harper v. Keller Williams...
but the worst might be Friday at 6pm: the roots/manu chao/lily allen/the black keys/ravi coltrane.. damn... I'm leaning toward the black keys right now tho... have to talk to the girlfriend about this one.
Item of note: Galactic's new album "From The Corner To The Block" (due out 8/12) features various guest MCs, so there set will probably have a little more Hip-Hop flavor than "normal" (whatever that is.)

I was looking at the schedule closer, and I think the schedule would be better if they moved Keller Williams from 6-7:30 to 7:15-8:45 (same stage and everything). This way he is towards the end or after Ben Harper, Franz Ferdinand, Spoon, Ween, and EOTO, but still ends 15 minutes before Police start. Nobody is taking up that stage during that time, and that makes one less descision for a lot of people it looks like. Anybody with me or see any reason why they shouldn't change it?
Ohhh I have alot of conflicts with the schedule... Almost the whole 4 days. My biggest thing is Friday The String Cheese, Aesop Rock and STS9 all same time. I guess I will find a spot in the middle of it all and let it all sink in. But I guess String Cheese would win. But love them all.
