Street Scene 2007 Lineup: Official Released Bands

Here's the bands that have now been officially named for the 2007 Street Scene at the Del Mar Fairgrounds on September 22 and 23 (according to the U-T):

Arctic Monkeys
Brand New
Clap Your Hands Say Yeah
Elvis Perkins
Fair To Midland
G. Love & Special Sauce
Infected Mushroom
Jack's Mannequin
The Killers
Louis XIV
Matt Costa
Mute Math
Panic! At the Disco
Paolo Nutini
Punk Rock Karaoke
Shut Up Stella
Slightly Stoopid
Social Distortion
Sweet & Tender Hooligans
The Acadamy Is
VNV Nation

According to the U-T, "Up to 20 more bands will be announced for the festival..." Notice that Cold War Kids are not on this preliminary list, despite sending out the date on their newsletter.

I would say I did pretty alright on
my predictions, so hopefully all you people who found this site over the weekend in search of the lineup got your pre-sale tickets. Official tickets go on sale this Saturday on Ticketmaster on 10 am.

On a side note, George Varga posted on Friday on Street that he'd have the exclusive on Monday, and to George, I've respected you since I've been reading your writing in high school, but dude, aren't you supposed to have the exclusive? I mean, you should be breaking a lot more news. You don't see us little bloggers as a threat, do ya?? Not a diss, just a legit question.

My other question is to CatDirt. Now you care?

I am surprised that a lot of hot topic bands are not included as of yet.

This may be the worst lineup for a summer festival to date. Completely pedestrian.

thanks! i'm glad i bought my pre-sale tickets. I think it was a wise choice. There are bands I want to see and bands that I haven't seen. I can't wait to see who else they add.
