So... the 80/35 Music Festival is in two months. I'm still somewhat hoping that there would be additions to the line-up. It just seemed lackluster compared to the previous years.
Out of all the acts listed, I'm really not that excited to see anyone. I like Conor Oberst, but that's just old habit. Best Coast is OK, I liked them in 2010.
I would still go and check it out. I think it's important to support the event. It's not always going to be great, but if you want to see more events like this happen in your city, you've kinda have to support it. Perhaps next year I'll join their board or committee.

Line-up Verdict: I don't hate it. / Actual event verdict: Pending
