Langerado Lineup Shows Just How Tough It Is To Get Decent Headliners These Days

The Langerado Festival moves to Miami for its 2009 installment (taking place March 6-8), and the just-announced lineup was announced a day later than it should have been. Looking at the array of acts, you have to wonder if they spent that extra 24 hours trying to find a real headliner. Death Cab? Snoop Dogg? Thievery Corporation???

While I spend the rest of the day trying to get my head around the idea of Thievery Corporation headlining anything but a Starbucks managers convention, here’s the rest of the lineup as it stands today.

(By the way, seeing the Pogues sandwiched between Dashboard Confessional and Matisyahu hurt my soul.)

Death Cab For Cutie Snoop Dogg Thievery Corporation (Live) Slightly Stoopid Ryan Adams and the Cardinals Dashboard Confessional The Pogues Matisyahu Flogging Molly Michael Franti & Spearhead Broken Social Scene Cafe Tacuba Umphrey’s McGee The Disco Biscuits Robert Randolph & The Family Band Pepper The Faint Cold War Kids Steel Pulse Public Enemy Gym Class Heroes Tricky Girl Talk Chromeo Mute Math Bad Brains Ozomatli Against Me!

They couldn’t throw Miami a few bones? Some freestyle? TK Records style soul? Trick Daddy? Rep your hood, Langerado.
