I'm glad that this is officially posted so that we can start discussing the specifics without putting people in an awkward position.(e.g. DaveT)
I did take a look at the earlier "unofficial" posting of the lineup/schedule and was groaning at some of the time conflicts, most notably Ferry and Blank & Jones spinning simultaneously in different areas. I'm sure DaveT can tell us more, but I have a feeling that the time slots aren't set in stone, just yet. Even so, I would think that those two would end the night in their respective areas. What to do, what to do...
No Gabriel & Dresden. Although I've been to their shows twice this year already, it just seems like they should be participating in arguably the biggest party event of the year in the Bay Area.(they are local, after all) But I don't doubt that they have/are currently trying their best to make it work. What can I say, I'm a fan.
Above & Beyond! Paavo told me at Cirucs last weekend that he heard about the LP happening in SF only an hour before they started their set. He said A&B would try to make it and it seems that the Spundae crew has managed to convince them to come. Nice! I'm telling you, Above & Beyond was amazing. I just wonder which two of the three are showing up this time.
I was still contemplating the possiblity of going to catch PvD at ten15... until I saw this lineup. It's going to be almost impossible to pass up on catching Ferry/A&B/B&J/Markus, albeit the short sets.
Let the excitement continue to build!
