Straight from my B&B in Amsterdam, I’m hooking ya’ll up with the links that matter. I may have missed some good stuff along the way, so feel free to send me an email if you have a link or two that I haven’t plugged yet.

The linup for Lollapalooza 2006 has been announced.
Wow. Whether or not we sit here and debate whether 130 bands on eight stages over three days is actually going to be fun, the lineup is beyond impressive. I’ll get a full update up asap.

Green Apple Music Festival finally announced their lineup, and I know that’s old news and all. I had higher hopes for the lineup, I guess, but those are my own expectations. I shouldn’t complain or nothing, though, there’s still some great music in there.

Lotus has announced a decent set of tour dates for the upcoming Spring season.
I’m psyched that I’ll get to catch them at the Schubas show in Chicago; it’s a really nice venue to catch a band.

The lineup for Wakarusa has been added to, most notably including STS9…

zzyzx waxes on the state of the jamband scene, the haters, and everything else.
Note to self: write something on this. Someone remind me…
