    @kicking222: “Also, Shephard Fairey is on the bill… does he do music, too?”
    I’ve heard of him doing DJ sets at art openings. That could be what he’s doing, I guess

    T’Challa – McCartney, Cohen and Superchunk are 3 of my all time favorites EVER. I’m with you.

    Did anyone read the Cohen Glastonbury reviews? Now how exactly am I going to get there from Chicago??
