Street Scene Eve

On the eve of Street Scene 2009, I am one excited lady. Still a novice streetscener, I am not yet disillusioned by years of somewhat disappointing performances, overpriced beer, and annoying concertgoers. No, I don’t remember when Street Scene used to be held downtown and then it was moved to Chula Vista and now it is back. And No, I don’t remember when Fergie peed her pants on stage. I am experiencing all these phenomena afresh, without baggage, like a small child.

Unfortunately, because of a tight budget (and because I bought tickets the day before the $95 2-day pass deal!), this year I will only be attending Friday’s festivities.  That is why it is more important than ever that I strategically plan out my day as to not waste a moment.

Below I have posted the first draft of my tentative schedule for tomorrow. I’m sure there will be some changes and whatnot, but I want to be prepared and flexible so i can call some audibles as I go.  You know what they say, “you don’t plan to fail, you fail to plan”.

5:50-6:35  Devendra Banhart

6:40-7:25 Band of Horses

6:45-7:30  Holy Fuck

7:30-8:25 Conor Oberst & the Mystic Valley Band

8:30-9:30 Cake


10:00-11:15  Girl Talk

I wish you all well and hope to see a bunch of cool kids dancing hard in the streets tomorrow.  Although I won’t be seeing Of Montreal on Saturday (frown), I leave you all with one of my favorite OM songs.  I think it is pretty appropriate in leu of the upcoming awesome weekend.
