Wait, you're putting Girl Talk on the main stage? And before Vampire Weekend?

How is any of that a good idea? Put him back in Neumo's at let him close the night. And get security to leave the ones who get on-stage alone.

I agree with #2, putting Girl Talk on the main stage and not closing the evening in Neumos is a horrible idea. Why not put him at Neumos during Vampire Weekend so all the under agers who don't even know who Girl Talk is have something to do. Do we really need two nights of Pretty Titty and Four Color Zack.

I may not even go now, this is a huge disappointment.

Girl Talk at Block Party last year was probably one of the funnest damn nights i've ever had. It's sad he's not on the Nuemo's stage, how the hell are we going to get up on the mainstage and dance dammit?

Such a good line-up thwarted by the chance of all the bands I would like to see most overlapping at different stages. And I'm not sure I'll even be going Saturday if I can't see Fleet Foxes or Throw Me the Statue.

I'm just gearing up for LSF again. Damn. They rocked my ass in NY a couple of weeks ago. HEElarious. As always. And WAY tighter than they were the last time they played Neumos.

I am going to be exhausted by Saturday w/ all the dancing to U.S.E., girl talk and Vamp Weekend. And my arms will be tired from putting them up to Common Market. Cant wait!

the youngsters certainly know who Girl Talk is, which is probably why he'll be in an all-ages venue.

i still scratch my head over the lack of independent hip hop on the lineup.
