Neon Indian – “Sleep Paralysist” – I caught their set at Bonnaroo but wouldn’t mind catching them again. Though I’m not sure if it will be the same without the booby-tassle indian chicks dancing on stage.

Big Boi – “Follow Us (ft. Vonnegutt)” – So very pumped to see Big Boi Sunday night. I’ve been digging the hell of out his solo album and am hoping he will mix in some Outkast jams.

Pavement – “Major Leagues” – So this will be the year I will finally see one of my all-time favorite bands ever. In fact, I will be seeing them again later this year in Atlanta. I can’t explain just how excited I am for this.
