Hello all zero of you,

Beirut
Franz Ferdinand
Leonard Cohen
Morrissey
N.A.S.A.
Paul McCartney

The Black Keys

Saturday, April 18th:
Booker T.
Calexico
Fleet Foxes
Henry Rollins

Hercules and Love Affair
The Killers
TV on the Radio

Sunday, April 19th:
Antony and the Johnsons
Paul Weller
The Cure
Throbbing Gristle
Yeah Yeah Yeahs

And the must-see list:

Friday, April 17th:
Beirut
Leonard Cohen

Morrissey (he’s sort of in between, I would ditch him for any other must-see)
Paul McCartney

Saturday, April 18th:

The Killers


Sunday, April 19th:

Antony and the Johnsons
The Cure
Throbbing Gristle
Yeah Yeah Yeahs
