ExcellenTIA, you got it! I will e mail you immediately to get your digits, real name, etc so my peeps at SanDisk can make sure your tix are waiting at the WillCall window. I am so psyched for this show — and as usual, I am sorry I don’t have enough pairs of tickets to make everyone’s day. But I know for sure tickets haven’t yet sold out, and the venue has shifted to Bayfront Park, which means more seating and more shade. And I got my set list planned out, yes yes, y’all!
ExcellentTIA and the other commenters got me thinking about the performers I want to see the most… especially in light of the fact that it appears that Santogold has disappeared from the lineup, and for some reason this is only revealed on the RTB message boards. Y so secretive?
Like my bredren Jonathan Cunningham, I’m particularly psyched for The Pharcyde. The foursome disbanded in 1997, and their songs are most definitely part of my college nostalgia soundtrack. This song right here takes me back to living in the dorms and kickin it with the homies. Sublime and The Pharcyde = winning combination. Summertime, and the livin’s easy.
Man, do I miss Brad Nowell. He had so much more music to make. I know that isn’t one of Pharcyde’s best tracks in terms of the verses — some of the rhymes from the post- FatLip period got a little sloppy. But it’s such a fun, breezy track to waft you into the weekend. Enjoy, y’all!
And in EXTRA giveaway news… the folks at SanDisk noticed that quite a few of you bellas are from NYC! Well, they’re offering another sweet giveaway for those of you in that neck of the woods.
