XX Merge July 22 - 26

5 day passes go on sale Wednesday, April 8 for $150.

I would love to go to this but that price is a lot higher than Merge 15.

I wonder if Versus will play. That was one of the best performances last time.

I find this aspect of the festival to be annoying as it makes picking travel days and such difficult.

"We will announce a (nearly) complete list of Merge bands who will be playing prior to the festival, but you will have to come to each show to find out who is playing on which night. We think it's more fun that way!"

I want to know who's playing on what night so I can decide when to get there and when to leave! Chapel Hill hotels aren't cheap!

oh, yeah. that's totally stupid.
they're just trying to pass off poor planning and last minute changes as "fun".

My friend Christine's parents live in Chapel Hill and two of her favorite acts are Superchunk and M. Ward. Hmm....wheels churning.

But, I wholeheartedly agree that "Show up and see!" is fucking ridiculous. Damnit I wish Athens were on this year. My new philosophy to avoid ennui is to have one fun and somewhat affordable thing to do every month. August is wide open!

To be honest, I'd mainly be goingfor Superchunk and M Ward - doesn't seem worth rooting round for the flight monies if i mightn't even see one of them!

Is Lou Barlow playing? Or The Rosebuds?
