@ZackTeibloom We survived Free Press Summer Fest. Two grueling 10-hour days in the 100 degree Houston sun, but we made it through everything we wanted to see. Weezer surprised us as the best show of the festival, but we run through it all, who had the best dancers, what saved us from the heat, and what made it all feel so long. This was recorded at 3 a.m. Monday morning. Please keep that in mind. Click M4A for stream to begin. Thanks for listening.
Not everything exciting that happens in Texas goes down in Austin. Houston's Free Press Summer Fest has a monster line-up headlined by Ween and Weezer and all kinds of goodies in the middle from Big Boi to Yeasayer and Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings. Want to know who else to check out? You've come to the right place...
I grill Andy on what his first Prince experience was like. In short, not as purple as you'd expect, every bit as incredible, with a splash of glitter. The long version? Listen to find out. Then we spin off into talking about Andy's favorite shows all time and where this ranks. It's a nice little chat. Enjoy.
Kanye or Coldplay? What day has the best line-up at ACL? Is it better than Lollapalooza top to bottom? What can we no longer do because of the C3 ban? All these questions will be answered in 20 minutes or so. Give it a whirl.
CLICK THE AUDIO M4A link box and it should start playing.
Lollapalooza pulled off something special with its 20th anniversary line-up. Andy and I had to break it down and guess who the headliners would be pitted against and who we'd pick. Will we have to decide between Eminem and Coldplay? Would anyone make us miss the Foo Fighters? Spend 21 minutes with us and see why we end with Andy sounding like he's dying and yelling "Too Soon!" at me.
Andy and I finally realized we could talk on Skype Video so we wouldn't step all over each others lines as we dissected the Outside Lands festival and debated its strengths vs. Lollapalooza. Andy tells us how much he loves Adele and I counter w/ Marina and the Diamonds. Then we end up talking about Passover and Umphreys? Listen to find out why. (It will show up as a Quicktime picture. Give it 10 seconds and then press play.)
Are Andy and Zack turning into grumpy old men or are this year's festival line-ups just not up to snuff? Maybe a little bit of both. Stick around until Andy realizes our impending doom... in 16 years.
