    I disagree Jon, I’d totally see Soundgarden at this

    yeah soundgarden rules!

    Delta Spirit played last year fwiw…

    for me personally they’re one of the better live “rock” bands around for me… they are decent on record (sadly The Current is playing one of the new albums weakest songs, which for whatever reason they released first), but live they empty the tank every time.

    their show at the Fine Line along w/ Joy Formidable will def be among my top shows come the end of the year.

    would be happy with Wilco headlining one of the nights for sure. i could see them playing and bringing their summer touring partners Dr. Dog along.

  4. It’s a shame that so many good acts are playing Fuji Rock that same weekend. Even if they were long shots, that rules out Jack White, ATDI, F*cked Up, Refused, EITS and more. Oh, and Howler…………..

    yeah, i’d seen about ATDI but figured if it’s my dream why not? 😉

    although I stopped short of exhuming any dead people…

    You guys might see Soundgarden but that doesn’t mean they rule.

    Maybe they rule for some people. Chris Cornell’s voice only inspires in me something I can best describe as “unspeakable hatred”

    I think it has something to do with hearing my sister’s copy of Superunknown about 1000 times in 1995

  8. My wife has been tirelessly trying to find a way to raise Elliott Smith from the dead, so if you find a way, please let me know.

    i loved the hell out of Soundgarden (mostly Badmotorfinger and earlier, but dug a good chunk of Superunknown and moreso Down on The Upside), but even I gave up my one chance to see them live at Lolla 2 years ago to see Arcade Fire sidestage instead.

    I could at least hear the riff of Outshined in between songs from a stage nearly a mile away.

    i have a feeling their “headliners” will be acts that are probably middle tier at festivals like Lolla, but would be happy to see them pull someone like Wilco.

    Wilco and Blitzen Trapper are playing Bayfront Park in Duluth on July 1st: http://www.startribune.com/entertainment/blogs/146666805.html

    might not rule them out for SoundTown, but certainly makes it less likely.

    Jon: Next time I see you I am totally going to sing Superunknown. You asked for it.

    Grunge is Life.

    Seeing the Lollapalooza lineup I do have one request: The Afghan Whigs

  14. jayceman says:

    Ha! Mostly wrong!

  15. Adam Bubolz says:

    Initial reaction: not as terrible as River’s Edge

  16. solace says:

    jayce… hey now, i got these right at least!

    Florence & The Machine, Girl Talk, Heartless Bastards, Best Coast, Those Darlins

    😉

  17. solace says:

    oh, and these locals:

    4 on the Floor, Peter Wolf Crier, Astronautalis

    but yes, certainly was a ways off
