At first there were only like two conflicts but then I discovered more good bands and the schedule moved and now there are like 6-7 conflicts Sad 
but you have seen the souls before....correct?  or at least listen to the new Wild record available free on quote unquote records titled "dreams are maps"
yeah I've listened to it. Its pretty good stuff. And I've seen the Souls before too. But like, its the Bouncing Souls. Its gonna be hard to pass up seeing them Sad

its only been like three Embarassed some of us don't live in NJ / didn't start listening to good music until way too late in life Mad 

still probably going to see the Wild because Fest is for checking out new bands. Same reason I'm probably going to not even catch any of Lucero so I can go see Great Lakes USA and State Lines. It just seems silly not to see Lucero or the Souls Sad 

still undecided if I do Arliss Nancy or Cross My Heart though. Liked Arliss Nancy last year and their new album is really good but at the same time Cross My Heart is playing right before Fake Problems and I imagine it'll be a lot more likely Arliss Nancy plays next year as week.

Also no idea what I'm doing Friday night. Masked Intruder is probably a go. Flatliners too though wouldn't be sad if I wound up somewhere else. But then to close out the night... maybe I Am The Avalanche... any idea how they are live? Any of the other bands playing that slot a must see?

saturday is all planned though. 12 hours of great bands all in a row

Will probably be there for the last ten minutes or so as I'll go from The Atlantic to to the Venue after Junior Battles to catch Cobra Skulls. Unless I decided to stay at The Atlantic to see Great Cynics. Heard good things about those guys as well...

I was at Iron Chic and didn't think it was the best Fest set =P But part of that could be I just haven't taken the time to really get into them. Hard to say who had the best set. Probably Fake Problems, though MoBo was also really good. Also Banquets, Captain, Junior Battles, Elway, RCR... I mean what a weekend.

How was Lucero? Thought about going, but really wanted to see Great Lakes plus was already worn out at that point. Figured I'd see Lucero something again within a year anyways.

Also does Captain normally not play A Bitter Divorce? The banter sounded like he said he wasn't used playing it. Its hands down their best song so either way I'm really glad they played it.

*tries to recall full schedule*

Thursday:

Holy Mess
Red City Radio
Larry and his Flask
AJJ
Mustard Plug (watching punks try to skank was hilarious. also they were like throwing a wig around in the pit cause why not)
Menzingers
Like two minutes of TWIABP
had to give up and head back cause red eye flights suck so missed choosing between The Wild and the Souls

Friday:

Mixtapes
Broadway Calls
Restorations 'bummer' Set (they played all of like four songs, but it still lasted 20-25 minutes because it was all their longer ones. was pretty cool)
Junior Battles
Great Cynics (best band discovery)
Like half of Cobra Skulls
Masked Intruder
A few minutes of Dudes Night
Luther
Pretty Boy Thorson (easily the drunkest, sloppiest set I've see at Fest. Mics were getting dropped, the lead singers pants almost fell off... it was both awesome, hilarious and a little sad)

Saturday:

Banner Pilot
Iron Chic
Dikembe
Broadcaster (who were really awesome. listened to their album a couple of times before Fest so they can't take 'best discovery' away from Great Cynics but probably my favorite band that I wasn't already a big fan of going it)
Timeshares
Modern Baseball
Nothington
Elway
Worship This (wanted to see OWTH but really didn't want to miss Banquets)
Banquets
Hold Tight!
Captain We're Sinking

seriously between Banner Pilot, Mobo, Elway, Banquets and Captain Saturday was beyond incredible

Sunday:

Comedy showcase
Slingshot Dakota
Hop Along
Cross my heart
Fake Problems (played songs spanning their whole range of a band from their first album to a new songs. Included Dream Team, Born and Raised and How Far our Bodies Go. Really felt like a special Fesy set this year and not just a standard Fake Problems set played at Fest)
Like half of Lawrence Arms (not sure why I left early, wouldn't have had any trouble getting into 1982, but whatever I had seen all my favorites by half way)
Great Lakes USA
State Lines
Holiday Inn cover bands

but yeah. Best Fest Yet indeed.

Get into them and you will see why the people broke that barricade and that dude that had the seizure (he is fine for the record).

I did not see Fake Probs, still not super into them after listening on and off since 07. Though I did love all the #fesy hype that Chris (I assume it was him) started.

Captain has never played that since I've seen them.

Yeah. #fesy was all Chris. Guy is a social media wiz. Not sure if it was all planned from the start or he just ran with it after the original typo, but it was cool to see how it caught on.

Fake Problems is certainly different from your normal Fest band. Personally don't see how people can't love shit like Heart BPM or Songs for Teenagers, but everyone's tastes are different. Smile
