Langerado 2011 lineup announced

By | June 1st, 2011 | 11 Comments

After a two-year hiatus due to financial disarray, Langerado Music Festival has just announced its 2011 lineup, which includes hippy deity Trey Anastasio, Ghostland Observatory, and Ween, as well as several crossover acts like Yuck, Das Racist, and Smith Westerns.

Revived by C3 Presents, the well-oiled machine behind Lollapalooza and Austin City Limits Music Festival (and their notorious radius clauses), Langerado will take place on Oct. 8 and 9 in Markham Park in Sunrise. Cause for celebration for some, though anecdotal evidence suggests C3’s decision to shake up the festival’s usually all-jam-band roster may not go over well with the hula-hooping hacky-sackers who traditionally attend Langerado. Overheard on Facebook: “I’d rather eat cow shit and walk to Deluna Fest. When you’re dead, you’re dead.” (FB needs a “fair enough” button.)

It remains to be seen whether C3’s strategy pays off. Obviously, some folks are bristling at how “Combination Pizza Hut and Taco Bell” may affect their precariously situated vibe. On the other hand, are fans of Das Racist and the other atypicals on Langerado’s lineup going to fork over $150 for “Combination Pizza Hut and Taco Bell” couched between 40-minute versions of 20-minute Grateful Dead songs?

Not sure, but I think we can all agree that no one gives a shit about Death Cab.
