Langerado 2007 | Schedule Announced!

The schedule for Langerado 2007 has been posted, and it is (once again) being powered by the team and database wizardry over JamBase. I love how they make schedule customization possible on this — color me easily amused — but I think it’s great that festivals are all taking advantage of a very smart and useful technology for would-be patrons…

I’ve put “My Schedule” after the jump even thought I’m not going to be in attendance for this festival. However, we will have some killer representation on site with our own Marcus Whitperson; he’ll be down there and hopefully doing some reporting from the festival as it occurs. More on that as the date approaches…

Langerado Schedule [JamBase]


My Would-Be Langerado 2007 Schedule
(even though I’ll be at SXSW).

Friday, March 9

Dubconscious > Lotus > Tea Leaf Green > Break (possibly take a nap) > The Hold Steady > Bela Fleck & The Flecktones > STS9

These are the bands that I’d see. I’d say skip Trey and/or the hopes that we’ll nurse him back to health with our crowd cheers. Hit STS9. These guys are seriously on top of their game right now and they seem to be getting stronger and stronger lately, especially since I last saw them over in Amsterdam.

Saturday, March 10

Apollo Sunshine > Toubab Krewe > The Slip > Yerba Buena (???) > Perpetual Groove > Medeski, Martin & Wood > Michael Franti & Spearhead** > MMJ > Disco Biscuits

** – Only to count the number of times Franti shouts “how you feeling?!?!?!?!”

The hardest part will be trying to tear yourself away from Toubab Krewe. Their sound can be infectious and seeing The Slip on a festival stage might not really highlight their “normal” experience. ‘Tis tough when they’re playing at the same time. And the real hard decision comes with the last set of the night — My Morning Jacket or the Disco Biscuits. That’d be hard one for me but I’d have to give the full nod to My Morning Jacket here. Their sound can fill a field and the Disco Biscuits’ sound (most usually) cannot.

Sunday, March 11

The Spam Allstars > Band of Horses > Rodrigo y Gabriela > Los Lobos > Matisyahu > Widespread Panic

This is probably the least impressive day on the lineup for me, so I’d probably take some time getting to know bands I’m not too familiar with: Bands of Horses and Rodrigo y Gabriela. Los Lobos is a no-brainer here and Matisyahu and Widespread Panic would be good bills where you could be assured some excitement to close off the weekend.

Feel free to share your schedule if you plan on going, and again, we’re planning on having some good photos and stories to share ourselves from the festival (thanks to Music Allies). Be sure to stay tuned for that…

    Dude, you are sooooooo Trey through and through. Even as you call him the Red-headed Fuckface. :)

    Trey headlining a festival with nothing new to bring to the table except a *possibly* renewed sense of vigor — not worth anyone’s time in my eyes. “Ooh…maybe he’ll open with “Drifting”…”

    See STS9. Skip Trey.

    Sunday will be relaxed and less jambandy but it’s still going to be an interesting day. Taj Mahal, Los Lobos, Explosions In The Sky(!!!) and Toots are all great bands and will be a treat as they are atypical on the festival circuit. I like Panic so that day seems a-ok to me. I’m going to be doing a whole lot of running around on the other 2 days. There is just so much to see.

    One major change that I haven’t seen pointed out on any boards is the fact that there wo’t be side by side stages this year. The last two years the Sunset and Sunrise stages were next to each other with one band starting as soon as the other band ended. It was nice to plant yourself between the two stages and not have to run as much.

    I’m not going down there for Trey specifically, but if it’s a choice between the best improvisational guitarist I’ve ever seen in my life and a group of crystal-worshipping backbeaters who complain about Oink, I’m going with the Redheaded F*ckface.

    If you honestly think STS9 is better than Trey, so be it. But that’s just a silly opinion I will never understand.

    Dude, apples to oranges.

    Trey IS the best improvisational guitarist that you’ve ever seen, sure. But his music *quality* has suffered dramatically over the past five years. STS9 has been the exact opposite. That’s my point and it’s rather simple to grasp.

    Are you honestly impressed with seeing him perform a solo during “Night Speaks to a Woman” — seriously? Isn’t it old to you yet?

    It sure is to me (as if that wasn’t obvious).

    I hear ya. I just don’t buy it. And I certainly don’t grant this premise: “But his music *quality* has suffered dramatically over the past five years.” It has declined from Phish, but his playing is still leaps and bounds above STS9.

    Trey has earned my loyalty, and I’ll be there for his set. And I’m hoping for a Malkmus sit-in.

    The “loyalty” card…

    Understood. And rather unfortunate, I guess — but hey, whatever. You’re right. You might have something to look forward to whereas I just view it as a probable wankfest.

    See the good thing about a festival is; you watch oh, say the first 3 songs of Trey’s set and say, “Wow this is kicking ass, let’s see how STS9 is doing.” Then you walk a hundred yards and say “Wow, this is kicking ass, I think I’ll stay here for awhile.” Then you say, “Hey, let’s go see what Trey is up to…” At the end of the night you say to your friends or maybe just the dude next to you, “Boy, I really like Trey AND Sector 9. I feel very fortunate to have been in a situation where I could experience both in the same evening. I love America.”
