Farm Aid Might Make My Ears Bleed

Did y'all hear Farm Aid's going to be in NYC this summer? I find it awesome in theory as I imagine it will attract some good press. Also, lots of peeps in NYC are pro-family farm and very interested in alternative agriculture.

However, I hope the bookers can choose some acts that NYCers will pay money to see.

So far, the headliners are Willie Nelson (natch), John Mellencamp (still no sign of the Cougar), Dave Matthews (barf), and Neil Young (he's a Cannuck, but we love him anyway).

If they keep Willie and Neil and add, say, Arcade Fire, a fey Swedish pop band, and LCD Soundsystem, they'll be in business.
