Music Midtown

This is just pathetic.  Let it be hereby noted that with the announcement of this year's line-up for Music Midtown, the standard-bearer for exciting, new music has now officially been passed to the Shaky Legs  Festival.  

Journey?  Really?  As a headliner?  You'd have to pay me $110 (the cost of a 2-day pass) to go to to a festival that had Journey headlining, and even then I still might not go.  Not to mention Red Hot Chili Peppers and Jane's Addiction.  Last year's headliners of Foo Fighters and Pearl Jam were bad enough, but what is this, Lollapalooza 1992?  At the rate we're going, we'll get Smashing Pumpkins and Stone Temple Pilots next year.  News flash to promoter Peter Conlon:  the 90s ended 13 1/2 years ago.  

I'll admit there are a few good bands in the lineup (The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Reignwolf, The Mowgli's), but not any great, must-see bands.  The cool kids will be staying away from this one in droves.
