Datarock is AWESOME live and I really really need The Verve to do a secret show.

I have heard, from semi-reliable sources, that Flogging Molly is actually a lot of fun live.

I still don't love their music, though.

Scott said...

Haven't you heard the Curious George soundtrack? I mean, seriously -- JJ is going to f------ blow people's minds on Friday.

p.s. I agree with this post 100%. The Stone Roses and Pavement reunions would be pretty dope.

who the fuck is Jack Johnson?

You forgot to add GG Allin to the resurrected from the dead group. Seeing him annihilate the Coachella crowd would be the greatest thing ever.
