Street Scene 2008 Lineup Breakdown

This is by no means an official announcement, but through the power of MySpace, band sites, PollStar and logic, I decided to breakdown the lineup for Street Scene by day. Either way, I hope to be there both days.

Beck, Spoon, Justice, TV On The Radio, Cat Power, Michael Franti and Spearhead, Hot Chip, The New Pornographers, Vampire Weekend, Antibalas, MGMT, Foals, Nortec Collective, The Muslims, Sea Wolf

The Black Crowes, Sound Tribe Sector 9, Tegan and Sara, X, The Hives, Cold War Kids, Ghostland Observatory, Man Man, Tokyo Police Club, Does It Offend You, Yeah?, Dengue Fever, West Indian Girl

The National, Atmosphere, Sound Tribe Sector 9, Ghostland Observatory, Eagles of Death Metal, Spiritualized, The Mother Hips, Devotchka, The Night Marchers, Del The Funky Homosapien, Chester French

And for general information, based on the past, ticket prices will go up. They were $65 in presale for a 2-day pass. After the lineup was announced, they were (and still are) $75 for both days. In the past, after a certain amount of tickets were sold or hitting a target date, the price jumped again for two-day passes and then were finally released as individual day passes, which might be somewhere like 65% of the cost of both days.

This is all based on my memory and I have no insider information, just speculating that things will work somewhat the same as the past.

Your best bet is to buy tickets now if you haven't already. Go to the official Street Scene site here.
