The featured image came through my Facebook feed from the Alice in Chains page about a week ago. It is for the Louder Than Life 2018 Festival. I saved the image off for this post; yeah it is a bit busy so if you can’t read the bands, here’s the lineup. One thing immediately jumps out at me. Fucking Limp Bizkit should not be side by side on a poster with Alice in Chains for any reason. That whole poster is so mouth-wateringly cool (I mean, Kentucky is really not that far) until you see that big turd in the center-top of the poster. Limp Bizkit must have one hell of a promoter, WTF?
Then, yesterday, I find out a close family member is doing sound for the AiC tour and could get me on the list for tickets. Wow. I whined a bit on the phone about it, of course. They are NOT coming to Atlanta, but a trip to Austin, Denver or Houston could be really fun. Alas, I am going to see my Dad in LA in September and that is the absolute last drop of traveling time and money that we possess at the moment.
It is OK, I have seen them four times, both with Staley and DuVall. Anyone who hasn’t seen them live should absolutely do so if they can. They put on a hell of a show.
So, let’s play songs from the Louder Than Life 2018 lineup. Again, if you can’t see all of the bands from the featured image, here’s the lineup.
Here is this week’s playlist:
