Given that Las Vegas is mentioned at least 4 times in the press release, I really didn't see the point of emphasizing that fact.

OH SHIT! THE HIPPIES ARE GOING TO TAKE OVER VEGAS THAT WEEKEND!



Pearl Jam was rumored to be apart of the festival, but I guess that's not happening.

I know my girlfriend is probably going to drag me to Dave Matthews. God, help me.

Depending on pricing, I wouldn't mind seeing Jack Johnson, Ween, Primus, or The Shins. Those are the only four acts listed on there that I'd probably see. Since I don't smoke weed, my interest in everything else is not there.

And if the price is just right, I'd have no problems beating the living shit out of The Flaming Lips for an entire song set. YEAH!

Late night for me...

28th - Toss up between moe. and Trey. Trey's new stuff hasn't really grabbed me, but I haven't seen his new band live yet either. Not sure what I'll do.

28th - SCI. Really can't stand STS9.

30th - Another toss-up. Love both Galactic and Ryan Adams. The opportunity to see Adams sing a bunch of GD tunes may be too good to pass up.

31st - Ween. No contest.
