Interesting - going theory is that LCD Soundsystem was going to headline the Panorama Festival in NYC that weekend. I wonder if this affects that, at all. Then again, this is only a 9-hour drive from New York, so maybe they're going to do both in one weekend.

Can we stop with the "Future is the greatest working rapper" stuff until Kendrick Lamar retires, please.

I think your definition of "rip through" and mine are slightly different. Great song and performance - bad headline.

No worries! I momentarily panicked because I'm torn between GB (which has been a three-year tradition for me, at this point) and my first-ever trip to Bonnaroo, and I thought the decision was going to be foisted on me sooner than I'd have wanted. It's nice to have a reprieve. Also, this was an excellent article.

Hey, just a heads-up to the author: That link you have about Governor's Ball nearly being sold out is to a news story they posted on January 22, 2015. I'm not sure what sales are like this year, but they haven't come out and made any such pronouncement as far as I've seen.

Jehnny Beth is great, but I'm all about Fay Milton. Hot damn, that's some drumming.

It's interesting - I feel like the difference between GB and Bonnaroo comes down to how one feels about the headliners. I'm really underwhelmed with the headliners for GB, but Pearl Jam and LCD Soundsystem are two of my favorite bands, and with the rest of the card being very similar, it falls out on the Bonnaroo end for me. If one is more into Kanye, the Killers, and (ugh) The Strokes, I could see it going in the other direction.

I meant that the Strokes not playing Bonnaroo makes it automatically a better festival. I've seen the Strokes twice, and both times, it was one of the more boring rock shows I've ever attended.

I hate to say it but, for me, it's Bonnaroo. They have just about everybody Governor's Ball has on its undercard, but their headliners are (by my lights, anyway) a lot better, and The Strokes aren't playing, which automatically gives this lineup a leg up.

I'm just on my first listen...but this is great. It doesn't have anything that rocks my soul like "Insolence," but overall, I think it might be better than Animal Joy.

Nooooooooo! This is the weekend of San Diego Comic Con, which I have to attend every year for work. I just know they're going to get LCD Soundsystem for this thing and I'm going to miss the chance to see them AGAIN. Ugh.

Where did you hear about the permits thing? I was really worried about having to choose between the two, especially with the LCD Soundsystem angle...but if that's definitely not happening, that makes my GB ticket purchase decision a lot easier.

I have such mixed feelings about this. I have zero interest in seeing any of the headliners (ugh, The Strokes? I've seen them twice and it's both times been the most underwhelming show), but the rest of the card is pretty damn solid. Am I just looking at going home early every night this year?

Man, James Murphy is more conciliatory than I'd ever be. "Because I felt like it" is all the explanation he really should have to give for this. If people want to complain because they get more of something they once thought was awesome, that's on them.

...why would you hope for that? Maybe some of us would want to see them at a festival gig in NYC.

Hear, hear. There is no part of me that is not psyched at the possibility that I'll get the chance to see this band play if they hit the East Coast. Why can't people just be psyched that a great band is going to be playing shows again? So, they made a big to-do about retiring. So what? Does that actually hurt anyone?

I don't know, man - it's all so rough. How they choose to deal with what they went through and the horror of it seems like a pretty personal choice by my lights, and far be it from me to judge that one way or the other.

The idea of this is awesome. The execution, not as much...at least, not enough to dethrone Animal's staring contest with OK Go drummer Dan Konopka: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yHK0JVAqQgE
