According to Last.FM, my compatibility with CHBP is 0%.

Yeah this lineup is way better than last year! Still wish it was just combined into two days though. don't think my liver could make it through three days.

Some good stuff, but nothing to make up for Blonde Redhead canceling last year.

ghostland is a headliner?!?! they havent been cool since 2006.
I totally agree with @4 they will bring the douches!

I'm not totally pysched for this line-up. Theres a couple bands I want to see, but I think this years is the weakest from the past 5 years.

Ghostland is a weak excuse for a headliner but if you remove them it's the best lineup they've had in a while

Not being 21 blows. EITS is the only band on this lineup that really gets me psyched. I just hope they don't end up playing at Nuemos, fuck. Anyone have any info on this?
