Wow I am surprised that there is another one this year after the inauguration of the AWP went so sour last year. America doesn’t NEED more festivals for crying out loud, especially one’s like these located close to pretty much every large and accessible city within 100km radius that host 100+ bands a day anyways.

And this, THIS IS THE BEST THEY COULD COME UP WITH?! These are all recycled bands, not that Fleet Foxes, YYY’s, the National, Flying Lotus, etc etc aren’t good bands…but by the time All Points West Festival happens on July 31st – Aug 2nd at Liberty State Park, everyone would be too tired and too happy with having gone to Coachella, SXSW, Sasquatch, Bonnaroo, Lolla, and saving up for Austin City Limits, Bumbershoot to even care.

Sorry but does anyone else like this festival or this year’s lineup?! The only group on there I’d even consider going for is the Pharcyde. Everyone else is already on the bills of large better, and more matured festivals. Maybe in a few years AWP will be something worth going to.

Ok guys the updates will be much more sparse in the next 4 weeks. My final exams are coming up and after that, I am as free as a bird for I have graduated! Anyways, a cool band I’ve been listening to lately (thanks Natalie!) is The Ropes. I watched their “Kitty Get Down” video and was hooked! I immediately bought their Be My Gun EP which was recently released, as well as their freshman EPs Cry to the Beat. They are a NYC based duo that consists of Sharon Shy (vocals/bass) and Toppy (drums/guitar). The Ropes are inspired by water and headphones. Water and headphones, they say, are all they need, water and headphones, are their staples.

You won't find an MP3 on here that I haven't danced and sung my heart out to or other forms of art that I don't absolutely adore...etc. Hopefully you might grow to feel the same way too!
