One of These Things Is Not Like the Others

Posted by on Tue, Feb 5, 2013 at 11:36 AM

Now that both the Sasquatch! and Coachella line-ups have been announced, it's fun to go through the line-ups and pick out the bands that kinda sorta don't fit in with the rest.

Descendents at Coachella is weird. I can't imagine Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan or the Stone Roses and Red Hot Chili Peppers fans want to hear some nerdy punk dude sing a 17-second song about food.

Dropkick Murphys seem out of place at Sasquatch, seeing as how Mumford & Sons, the Lumineers, the Postal Service, and other gentle types are headlining. They have banjos and sometimes wear suspenders, though, so I guess they fit in?

Let's vote on it!

there are always some a+ outliers for coachella (ie THE SELECTER). sasquatch just sticks to its thing.

Flogging Molly played Sasquatch 2 years ago, so Dropkick Murphys don't seem too out of place to me.

@3 - i think you mean "i'm gonna turn dining back into eating". the descendents are into coffee and good clean fun.
