Planning to skip Ben Harper, Beastie Boys, and Bela Fleck? Really?

I'm not sure that we can be friends anymore, Jim. :P

while i'm sure he's quite the musician, Ben Harper to me just comes off as bar music.

Beastie Boys will probably put on an amazing show.

Bela Fleck could be good. i don't know anything about him other than "banjo virtuoso". i will say this: showmanship goes a lot farther in my book than musicianship when it comes to live music. they're both important, but i don't want to stand around for an hour without at least the illusion of audience participation/interaction.

You gotta give props to TV on the Radio. those guys have the perfect voices for rock music.

If you're into showmanship, go see Ben Harper. Seriously.

He owned the main stage at Bonnaroo in 2007, sandwiched between Ziggy Marley and The Police. He had Ziggy on-stage for a cover of Bob Marley's "Get Up, Stand Up", then John Paul Jones came out for a really great rendition of Led Zeppelin's "Dazed and Confused".

I wasn't much of a Ben Harper fan until I saw him live, but he was in his element that afternoon at Bonnaroo and I've been a fan of his live work ever since.

As a fellow musician, I owe you an explanation. I appreciate the talent, but I don't enjoy the style.
