Performers at this Event
Alice In Chains
Alice In Chains Remove performer from this event
Alice in Chains represented the darkest side of 1990s grunge rock. Taking a page or two from such previous doom-rock purveyors as Black Sabbath and the Melvins, the band lyrically depicted the hell of drug addiction (and other hardcore topics) perhaps more convincingly than anyone else of the era....
The Black Crowes
The Black Crowes Remove performer from this event
At the time of their 1990 debut, the kind of rock & roll the Black Crowes specialized in was sorely out of style. Only Guns N' Roses came close to approximating a vintage Stones-style raunch, but they were too angry and jagged to pull it off completely....
The Flaming Lips
The Flaming Lips Remove performer from this event
The Flaming Lips (formed in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma in 1983) are an American rock band. The band is known for their lush, multi-layered, psychedelic arrangements, spacey lyrics and bizarre song and album titles (for example, "Psychiatric Explorations of the Fetus with Needles", "Free Radicals (A Hallucination of the Christmas Skeleton Pleading with a Suicide Bomber)" and "Yeah, I Know It's a Drag....
Daryl Hall & John Oates
Daryl Hall & John Oates Remove performer from this event
From their first hit in 1974 through their heyday in the '80s, Daryl Hall and John Oates' smooth, catchy take on Philly soul brought them enormous commercial success -- including six number one singles and six platinum albums -- yet little critical success....
The Smashing Pumpkins
The Smashing Pumpkins Remove performer from this event
Of all the major alternative rock bands of the early '90s, Smashing Pumpkins were the group least influenced by traditional underground rock. Lead guitarist/songwriter Billy Corgan fashioned an amalgam of progressive rock, heavy metal, goth rock, psychedelia, and dream pop, creating a layered, powerful sound driven by swirling, distorted guitars....
ZZ Top
ZZ Top Remove performer from this event
The dance music of Central Europe is combined with West African rhythms by Berlin-based Trio Grande. Incorporating a diverse blend of French bourees, German zwiefaches, Schottische, and waltzes, the group has created a unique dance-inspiring sound....
The Roots

Philadelphia-based ensemble who elevated hip-hop with their use of live instrumentation. ~ Rovi
The Black Keys
The Black Keys Remove performer from this event
It’s too facile to call the Black Keys counterparts of the White Stripes: they share several surface similarities -- their names are color-coded, they hail from the Midwest, they’re guitar-and-drum blues-rock duos -- but the Black Keys are their own distinct thing, a tougher, rougher rock band with a purist streak that never surfaces in the Stripes....
Bassnectar
Bassnectar Remove performer from this event
Bassnectar is the stage name used by DJ, producer, and remixer Lorin Ashton, one of the more popular and influential figures in California's electronic music community. Bassnectar's music is known for its eclecticism, embracing elements of extreme bass, dubstep, breakbeat, and other IDM styles, as well as shifting tempos, contrasting moods, and dynamics that go from gentle to bruising and back during the course of a set....
Phoenix
Phoenix Remove performer from this event
French quartet who artfully reproduce the super-slick sound of the mid-1970s Californian pop rock with 2000s flair. ~ Rovi

Eating Crowe

The vibe was just not there. I'm sure Ed and Marc are glad to know that the Crowes are seriously hurting without them. Neither Chris or Rich seemed "on". Luther's guitar solos just were not good friends. I've seen this band all over the country over the last 20 years almost and never have been let down until towards the end of last year for the first time. I gave them one more chance & regret it. I heard a lot of people saying stuff like "they should bring back Marc" I would hate to see that with his solo/producing career really starting to blossom like it is. Believe me, the Crowes are missing that old chemistry. Sorry guys.

Amazing

There is nothing like catching Lorin live. He is one of the top "underground" DJs in the world.

These guys have an amazing stage show.

I saw them a couple days before New Years '07. It was wonderful, they had a new years countdown for us since we weren't gonna be at the new years show, lots of beautiful music, confetti - the works.

Also, the lighting system is a giant UFO, and the lead singer enters the stage in a giant balloon freedom ball thing! They win the universe.

pick your pocket full of sorrow, run away with me tomorrow

O! Nostalgia! The Pumpkins are, in a mushy and gross sentimental way, my favorite band. They were my first favorite, and for years seemed to mirror my changing interests (Billy started wearing dresses and apeing Marlene Dietrich hand gestures at the exact moment Glam rock and pre-code film infiltrated my brain... creepy).

The band always seemed like a bit of a secret, even when they were huge. Small awkward songs that seemed so big. Gut-wrenchingly teenage lines that will always hold an eternal truth (see title). Snarling guitars exploding out of lullaby-esque atmospheric waves (*the* band of the ADD generation...). A man whose hair disappeared as he became more and more famous (mirror images of Samson and Icarus rolled into one, really). Beautiful!

"Siamese Dream" stands as an angsty love letter to the human race... the most bitter songs are also the sweetest. "Adore" is just the best album ever, OK? Dancing out of tombs and into wombs on each cloudy day.

Billy Corgan is a genius, and enough of an egomaniac to think he actually matters. So he does.

"Zeitgeist" is a really good album. It's different. A band who no longer remembers who they were... but that's good. Times change. Better to forge anew than become The Police or Fleetwood Mac (*cough*). It's not their best, and maybe some of that heart and awkwardness is lost in a guise of maturity... but it's still there somewhere. Lines like "Of course I love you, baby / Coz I'm alive" couldn't be topped by Bolan, Dylan, or St. Augustine. And "Stellar" is, like, one of the best songs ever!

It's rock n roll, OK?! It's not a science. Sometimes it has to suck to make it special. And for that very reason, Billy Corgan is the patron saint of a generation's inner 14 year olds, for better or worse. re still amazing.

Nothing like them

One of my favorite groups of all time. Their music ranges from richly overdriven, symphonic guitar riffs to subdued, melancholy tunes that somehow evoke the feeling of old motion pictures for me. Although they have been on a downward spiral for some time now, the music I grew up with still holds a special place in my heart.
