FM 94/9 Independence Jam 2009

FM 94/9 just announced via Twitter that their 2009 Independence Jam lineup will be announced on Wednesday. I have no inside information (well, except the Metric news that leaked and then was pulled), but I'd like to make a few guess/suggestions for 2009. If the original information was correct, the show will be on June 7, and we shall assume it will return to DeVore Stadium at Southwestern College.

Here are some guesses, or call it wishful thinking:
The Hold Steady (There was a tweet about Garrett being ecstatic this weekend after getting a huge confirmation and we all know he luuuurves The Hold Steady, though I don't know if they'd play the festival in back to back years)
Sunny Day Real Estate
Dead Confederate
Silversun Pickups (Brian said they "love" 94.9, but didn't know their summer tour schedule yet when I asked if they'd been invited)
Delta Spirit

Local Stage:
The Soft Pack
Grand Ol Party
Scarlet Symphony
Apes Of Wrath

2007 Lineup: Interpol, Kings Of Leon, Spoon, Living Things, The Aggrolites, Test Your Reflex, Grand Ole Party, Mr Tube and The Flying Objects, Scarlet Symphony, Transfer, The Soft.lightes

2008 Lineup: Flogging Molly, The Hold Steady, Cold War Kids, MgmT, The Whigs, The Ting Tings, Santogold, Nortec Collective, Transfer, Silent Comedy, Kill Me Tomorrow, The Muslims, Blackout Party

I dunno, it's fun to guess, but in a couple days we'll know anyway. Feel free to comment your guesses or suggestions.
