Cause a month later after the rumored Pirates-hit on BDO comes yet another shaping-up-to-be killer fest. Me and Pantsy have already hatched a plan which involves some survival knives, 20 hand grenades, Jack Bauer and possibly Jessica Alba (in a cute sky blue baby doll), to get our company to transfer us over to our Aussie office permanently.
No no silly, not cheap hotels. Like a literal hole. You know, the ones where we may meet a mole or two and perhaps get acquainted with the finer points of eating deep fried soil.
Anyway, off to the chunkier news bits. First announcement lineup includes (and seriously, try not to heel over and die):
Feist, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Kevin Drew (Broken Social Scene), Okkervil River, Dan Deacon, The Brunettes. The Presets, Gotye, The Panics, The Devastations, Little Red, Via Tania, The Holidays and Bridezilla.
