(Some Guy)   Think music festivals are too singular in musical style? How about one that includes Judas Priest, Wiz Khalifa, Dinosaur Jr. and Jello Biafra?   (eddietrunk.com) divider line 26

There's always room for Jello.

Is this where someone says "and we're done here"?

I like this. I would actually go if I could afford it between Comic-Con and the renn fair.

Judas Priest: formed in 1969
Jello Biafra/Dead Kennedys: 1978
Dinosaur Jr.: formed in 1984
Wiz Khalifa: 2003/2004ish


One of these things is not like the other.  One of these things just doesn't belong.

Is this a concert for 50-60 year old Boomers and their barely legal screw toys, or what?

What concerts do you go to where new, young bands headline? They are main eventers. Look at the performer list. There's a wide range of talent across many generations.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i09OMr2v904 Wiz Khalifa, Pittsburgh Sound 'Instrumental'

I'm pretty fascinated by the instrumental versions of rap songs. (Note, I'm not dissing the rappers.) But remove the vocal track and I'm often surprised at the contrast of style and moods.

Yeah, saw Wiz a lot before he got big - I'm a yinzer.

And I know exactly what you mean. I don't listen to a lot of rap, but there was a guy living in the apartment next to me for a year who did. I could hear the music but not the words and would knock on his door to ask what he was playing when I heard various things, like flamenco guitar in a rap song. We both learned from that.

You should check out the album Petestrumentalsby Pete Rock. Really great in its own right, and explores the idea you're talking about.  The same is true of a lot of DJ records of that era - X-Ecutioners, Beat Junkies,  etc etc

Submitter wasn't referring to headliners.  Submitter was referring to differences in musical styles.  Making a statement like that, I expect a much more diverse listing of bands than "Boomer rock, boomer rock, boomer rock, millenial rap".

I'd call this 'old school Metal' and 3 bands I really don't know anything about..

Dinosaur Jr. Has dabbled in Hip Hop. I'll just leave this here...

So there are three stages: Black Stage = metal, Blue Stage = rap, Orange Stage = newer alternative.

Not unheard of. With the right amount of alcohol and drugs, it all sounds good.

Cobblestone Flag: Del the Funky Homosapien

Well that was weird.

so what you're telling me is that I have to sit through a bunch of crap to get to Judas Priest (I love Jello Biafra's work with the Kennedys but the best thing he does for music these days is run Alternative Tentacles)

Halford should have hung up the pipes a long time ago. I say this as a fan and as a metalhead. Would rather see Wiz.


he doesn't have the range he once had that's for sure but he can still wail. The main issue I have with them these days is trying to replace KK Downing. The Downing/Tipton guitar duo made their guitar sound and you can't replace the dynamics between 2 people that have played together for 40 years regardless of how good the new guy is. I saw them a couple years back on their Epitaph tour and the new guitarist missed or butchered half his parts. He is definitely the weak spot

I looked at the performer list.  There's a wide range of performers.  That's about all you can say.

Damn! Thats a hell of a line up. I really wish I lived closer to places that had good concerts etc. But then again I do get the Montana Folk Festival every year.
 
2014-05-21 10:55:46 AM
too bad,  i wanted to see yo la tengo, the misfits and gary numan

I don't know, I think Guantanamo School of Medicine is pretty good.

And if you read the transcripts from the DK lawsuit, it seems like he doesn't actually run the label all that well...

I don't really care to read court transcripts so can you give me a quick summary? I've ordered some vinyl from AT in the past. It usually takes awhile to get here but his releases are solid
 
2014-05-21 01:10:47 PM
King Diamond is on the bill too.
 
2014-05-21 01:20:01 PM
I'm definitely getting the new Judas Priest on it's first day. 'Redeemer Of Souls' is a badass motherfarking track, reminds me of 'Hell Patrol', soooooooo hopefully they're going back to the 'Painkiller' days. Though, 'Angel Of Retribution' was solid as hell, they need to make up for the train wreck that was 'Nostradamus'.

Love to see them, Amon Amarth, Dum Dum Girls and King Diamond live though!

Setting the stage for some epic live-performance mashups...just sayin'

In all fairness, Jello left the Dead Kennedys behind a long, long time ago. He does a really good job of staying current.

Basically, the other ex-DKs had a legitimate beef about him screwing them out of royalties. And he did it knowingly. As much as I like his music, he turned out to be another shady businessman. Shame, really.

You should try Testament -- Dark Roots of Earth album. Now THAT is how an oldschool metal band keeps things real (you mentioned Amon Amarth so I figured heavyness is allowed for suggestions).

/True American Hate!!!


Great album! My favorite of their's would have to be 'Formation Of Damnation'.
