I was really looking forward to going this year, especially since they just started cheap Branson-Austin flights. But I saw Phish last year at Roo, the Lips in OKC on NYE, and Robert Earl Keen in Nov.

I'm tempted to do Lolla instead, even thought the setup at Grant Park is less than ideal.

What does the bold type in your OP signify, NewPhin? Is that just personal commentary about which bands are more attractive to you?

Yeah. The bolded ones are the ones I'd really like to see. Some of the non-bolded are as well, but those are the ones that made me say, "Damn! I want to see them."

And Phish is mainly included out of nostalgia and because I haven't seen them since like 1998.

I don't know anything about their music, but I like the name "Slightly Stoopid".

They're sort of punk/reggae combination. I haven't heard that much of them, but remind me a little of sublime. Most famous because they're big stoners and sing about getting high all the time. All the high school kids love them.

NewPhin, it looks like we have similar taste in music. I would love to see a lot of those bands.

w/o the music, Austin isn't very appealing. Areas right outside of Austin are heavenly, but the city itself is meh.

the only two artists I'd care to see are Balmorhea and Beach House, and I've already seen them both previously, so........I'm gonna pass.

So, that's them. I wondered what they were like after only hearing "Home" on the radio a thousand times.

I'm in love with that blonde chick on the right. :p

The skinny-lack-of-boobs-psycho-weirdo chick who looks like a ten year-old boy needs to cut back, and I mean way back on those shrooms.

Regular guy: Let’s go to Austin for vacation this year.

Regular guy’s friend: Naw… I don’t think I wanna be around all those Austin hipsters.

Austin hipsters can get aids, jump in a fire and die, then Austin would be more appealing.

While annoying as hell at times, hipsters are harmless. It's still easily one, if not the most, desirable southern city to live in.

It's like $85 isn't it. Not enough bands I'd want to see for that price. Austin is always great to visit though to get away from Dallas.

I hear them on Sirius radio all the time. That is my sole source for radio music. If you have Sirius radio, they can be heard on The Spectrum channel and the Jam-On channel.

ROFL I can tolerate hipsters. Although, the Austin residents who swear Austin has the best post in Texas get on my fucking nerves. All of Austin's weed comes from Dallas-Fort Worth and Houston. They get everything we get about a month later.

The Avett Bros tiny desk concert is freaking awesome. I need to find a way to see them this year, as I missed them in CoMo back in March.
