I haven't listened to EitS in ages so I don't know if their style has changed, but if not I doubt they would be worth seeing in a festival setting anyway. They seem like a band more suited for an intimate show.

I found a bootleg of the QotSA show from last weekend, I haven't listened to much but it seems like it's very good quality. If anyone wants the link I'll PM it to them.

I was trying to think of who would be cool as a wtf out-of-the-blue, older 'I thought they retired' band, and I've decided that it should be the Violent Femmes.

Totally idiosyncratic on my part, but whatever.

Bands will come out in a week. Next tuesday to be precise.

I just can't wait. Osheaga = best time of the year for me (except when we're passed the second round).

I have no idea how it started and it's most likely false, but there's a rumour about Eminem coming to Osheaga. I don't think he's been back in MTL since the Marshall Mathers LP came out.

Anyways, I grew up a huge fan of Em (I own all his CDs, including the 8 Mile soundtrack, and also the DVD) so yeah, that would pretty much make my summer. The Strokes would be another good headliner, not to mention Radiohead would be awesome as well, but I already saw them live when they came to MTL two years ago.

Except for Ratatat, Malajube, Beirut, Emininem, Eels and Karkwa, this really sucks. And I don't really want to see Eminem inshow anyway. It's cool they gave more space to local artists as Jimmy Hunt and Karkwa but really, overall such a week lineup for me. No real headliners if you're not a fan of Crystal Castle, Kid Cudi or Eminem.
