Lot of New York bands representing: LCD Soundsystem, Vampire Weekend, Grizzly Bear, Yeasayer, Lucero, Sleigh Bells, Dirty Projectors, De La Soul, Julian Casablancas, Matt & Kim, Gil Scott-Heron, etc. Pretty fucking good show. Some other big ones–Public Image Limited, Grace Jones, Gorillaz, Pavement, Phoenix, Orbital, Spoon, Sly and the Family Stone, and the cryptically credited Thom Yorke????, which probably just means the lineup dude brought to LA back in October, consisting of Flea, Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich, R.E.M.- and Beck-affiliated drummer Joey Waronker, and the percussionist Mauro Refosco. Unless it just means Radiohead. Always a chance! Full lineup below:
