Are you going Sloyj?  Or were you just checking out the lineup?

Either way, thanks... I'll try to check them out too.

Bumping this thread to report

Modest Mouse: Awesome... almost didn't get in, but did... and they were good.

I am the World Trade Center:  Who the fuck told me these guys were good?  This was the most ridiculously funny shit.  They had a keyboard and a machine that goes **boodoodoodoodoo** when you put your hand over it.  They were dancing around the stage like a fucking christian band... all smiley and playing un-miked tamborines.

Estradasphere:  Fucking amazing group.  Banjos, accordians, violins, heavy metal, jazz... shit... they were all over the place.

Sleepytime Gorilla Museum: Kind of cool, but unimpressive following Estradasphere.

Pedro The Lion:  Really good.  Great thing about this guy is that he really talks to the audience.  They stopped after a few songs and said "so... any questions?"... when people would randomly yell shit out between songs, he would say "What?" and respond to what they said.

Against Me:  These guys played some decent music, but there should be a rule that you can't be a band that's on a "Punks for voting" showcase and Anarchists at the same time.

David Cross:  Yeah, he's not a band, but he did his stand up during the punk showcase.  He was funny as always, but his act was cut short because Jello Biafra (who's not funny or interesting anymore) wouldn't shut up when "introducing" him and it ate into his alloted time.

Aesop Rock:  This was fun, but he didn't play many of the songs I really like and he was a little too "put your hands in the air" for my tastes.

RJD2: He's a pretty cool DJ.  He was spinning for Aesop and he did a solo set afterwards.  It was pretty cool.

I saw a lot of other bands, but I can't remember all thier names.

Oh, I DID see the lead singer of Everclear at Spaghetti Warehouse.
