Street Scene Picks

So, someone loves me very much and offered me their +1 for Street Scene this weekend. So it turns out that I am going after all.

Someone else seems to like me a decent amount, and is trying to hook up a photo pass as well. It’ll be great if it works out, but if not, well, it’ll be nice to be able to relax and enjoy the music for once.

Here are my picks of the lineup, based on actually trying to see entire sets by most of the bands. As always with festivals, there’s some overlap, but I’ll deal.


Muslims 5:00-5:40 Casbah stage

Hot Chip 5:50-6:35 Fulana stage (I’ve seen MGMT twice now and totally got shut out of the photo pit for Hot Chip at Coachella)

Foals 6:10-6:50 Casbah stage (Hoping to catch the tail end of their set, if I’m not using the time for a potty/drink/food break)

New Pornographers 7:15-8:15 Zarabanda stage

TV on the Radio 7:45-8:30 Fulana stage (It’ll be hard to pull myself away from New Pornographers, but maybe I’ll see the end of their set)

GZA 8:15-9:00 Casbah stage (Probably just going to catch a bit of this set, if only for P’s sake)

Spoon 8:35-9:35 Fulano stage

Justice 9:40-10:40 Fulana stage

Beck 10:45-12:00 Fulano stage


Spiritualized 5:10-5:55 Fulano stage (Sound was crappy during their set at Coachella, and I only saw about 3 songs. Looking forward to a whole set.)

Cold War Kids 5:50-6:40 Fulana stage

Tokyo Police Club 6:30-7:10 Casbah stage

Ghostland Observatory 7:30-8:30 Zarabanda stage (This is a band I really want to take photos of.)

X 8:30-9:20 Fulano stage

The National 9:25-10:25 Fulana stage (I will be there for every second of this set.)

Black Crowes 10:30-12:00 Fulano stage (I’ll check it out for a bit.)

Man Man 10:45-11:45 Casbah stage (Highly entertaining at Coachella.)
