    80/35 Music Festival Rumors?

    Anyone got any rumors on who the 80/35 musical festival might bring in this year?

    First announcement is April 4th.

    I don't know. I hope they bring in someone like Jane's Addiction or maybe a couple of punk acts. I really want to support this but haven't been able to make myself yet. Too heavy on jam bands.

    I'm hearing the name, Josh Groban, being tossed around a lot.

    Doing a little research. Eddie Vedder is playing In Minneapolis on July 2nd, and has nothing scheduled on the 3rd.

    His solo show tickets are $75.00 so may be a little out of the budget.

    I am a jam band fan, but I thought they were pretty diverse in their selections, especially last year. (If it was me, I would prefer more Jam Bands.)

    Modest Mouse and Spoon aren't really Jam bands though. I understand they probably don't appeal to the Punk fans either.

    Re: 80/35 Music Festival Rumors?

    Eddie Vedder would be phenomenal, but I'm not holding my breath. Bands I'd like to see (within reason):

    Wilco
    Lucero
    The Hold Steady
    Drive-By Truckers
    Todd Snider
    Flaming Lips
    The Decemberists
    Gaslight Anthem
    The Avett Brothers
    Mumford and Sons
    Slobberbone
    Hayes Carll
    James McMurtry
    Jason Isbell & the 400 Unit
    Umphrey's McGee

    There are a lot of other bands that would warrant going, these were just a few off the top of my head.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    I'm kinda in the same boat... I think it's a great event and a benefit to Des Moines it just hasn't brought in the acts to appeal to me yet. Of course I'm getting older and less cool by the day.

    Looking at Joe Lawlers music blog.

    80/35 possibility: String Cheese Incident, and who is Skybombers? | Metromix Des Moines

    The String Cheese Incident are Headlining a June 30th Festival date in Michigan. I would love to bring them to DSM, haven't seen them since college. That would bring the Hippies here for sure.

    Re: 80/35 Music Festival Rumors?

    I've volunteers for the 80/35 festival every year & know the DMMC people pretty well. The 1st two years they operated in the red b/c the headliners cost too much. I dont see them getting too big of name & trying to grow the event so they can afford bigger acts...

    So I recommend you recommend going to all of your friends... The big thing I've learned going is that many of the acts you dont know are pretty good. 80/35 has a very diverse range of bands & they do this purposely to make you (& me) a more diverse fan.

    I've done the VIP pass & bought mine on Friday for $100 a pretty sweet deal.

    This year will be a little different as the DSM Social Club has moved (they are actually in process of moving to the Kirkwood Hotel Ballroom on 4th & Walnut).

    BTW, its DMMC's Gross Domestic Project event this weekend...

    Re: 80/35 Music Festival Rumors?

    I understand that money is an issue with who they get. My dream would be to have a band or two or something like them included.

    Mudhoney- have to be cheaper now
    Alkaline Trio- From Chicago
    Goodyear Pimps- From Illinois
    Peeping Tom- Mike Patton
    Pavement-still reunited?
    Sonic Youth
    Seaweed-low cost
    Beastie Boys- too spendy?
    Jon Spencer Blues Explosion?
    Melvins- having a jam band come on after them would be great.
    The Evens
    Descendents
    2 of these bands or even 1 would get my attention.

    Yeah the Beastie Boys would be great…but IMO they'd blow their already modest budget on one band with nothing else left…thus the tricky thing about a multi-day festival. How do you get some "names" but also have $$ left to fill the bill? Not an easy thing to accomplish.

    The fact that you had to question this is even more comical.

    Scott Lucas and The Married Men?

    (I haven't heard them yet, but there was a flyer inside the CD case of Local H's "Awesome Mix Tape #1" CD that my wife got me for my b-day promoting his new side project.)

    I'd love to see Mumford and Sons. I'd buy a ticket just to see them.
