They've got some pretty strong programming in the rock and punk departments. A few real surprises, like Davila 666 and Thee Oh Sees (two of my favorite live acts), Red Fang, Nomeansno, Butthole Surfers, PS I Love You, My Goodness. Local hiphop gets a decent shake: Mad Rad, Champagne Champagne, Shabazz, Astronautalis, who was a highlight at SXSW for me. All that with the addition of Decibel programming, nixing Memorial Stadium for Key Arena (where they hope to serve beer), and moving the bigger comedy acts to the 842-seat Bagley Wright Theater. Today is the last day to buy the $29 any day tickets, with which you can buy now and choose later. Get 'em here. Stay tuned for the schedule announcement, coming sooner than you think.
