I don't know what is with the music snobbery that seems to be lingering among some about the quality of the BunBury line-up. They are not putting on top-40 pop acts. Nor it is Radiohead. It's somewhere in between. Will it blow the mind? Prob not, but so what?
I for one am "all in" for this, for no other reason that I want this to be a success for Cincinnati. If Cincy people on these boards are not attending, who will? Do you want this to be a one-off promising Desdemona event that dies the next year? This festival has got to start somewhere, and this is it. I've seen most of the bands announced so far, and are they my "favorite" acts of all time? No. But I do look forward to, say, watching Weezer rock out on a sweet summer evening on the riverfront.
$93 for 100+ bands over 3 days. How bad can it be?
