as far as mainstream bands go, I think 311 was a good idea. I still think transistor is a sweet album

eh, i guess i'd pick middle school emo over generic rap rock.

that being said, unless the show is free i doubt i'll be going.

Crossfade would be better for the sheer fact that it wil be free, no one will pay for either of those bands.

if dashboard plays, there are gonna be more tickets sold to non-ncsu students (high school and middle school kids) than to ncsu students

But most of them will be underage....

I hope no one on the Homecomming committee this year is retained for next year.

I'm just saying...people were talking about it in class yesterday when the article came out and most people were excited about the 2 candidates.
Then I come on here and most people are against it.

i will take a small niche band that is actually good for their genre over some watered down shit. And Dashboard hit its musical prime years ago when Chris Carrabba was still by himself.

The intelligent thing to do would have good bands from each genre at a show (country, rap, rock, etc.) to appeal to everyone.

I'm surprised we can't find some rich donor to donate more money for a decent homecoming concert since we have such a low budget. That's what kills us, my friends. No dough.

because the people on this site don't wanna be mainstream, c'mon man get with the program, if more than 10 people have heard of the band then they sold out.

That wasn't a point you fucking idiot. It is not about these bands selling out, it is about these 2 candidates sucking. Who cares if they are played on the radio? They suck, whether on an indie label or plastered all over Times Square.

^^^^ must someone bring up this IGNORANT point everytime people criticize bands on here.

i could name plentyof bands who have been all over mtv and the radio etc that i love(old incubus, deftones, foo fighters, old rage against the machine, queen, led zepplin, coldplay, U2...) it just happens to be that the MAJORITY of the bands i listen to arent huge. its not because lots of ppl listen to these bands that i dont like them. its because they suck

nah bands like crossfade get thrown nearly straight onto radio. just about ANY band with a good recording..if they know someone in order to get signed can get huge and sell tols if they can get put straight onto the radio and into big music magazines (coverslots on these magazines are BOUGHT not earned) people are going to buy their music.

but yea whatever i wasnt expecting to like who they picked anyways haha

i was actually sad to find out that even magazines like AP, allllll the spots are bought. even small blurbs about CDs. and the coverband and everything. i mean i knew pretty much all music magazines and things were like that but i figured some of them wouldnt be as bad as others but i was defintiely wrong.

kind of takes the hype out of making something of yourself as a band. you pay to get videos made(which obviously i already knew), pay to get interviews and your video played on tv a lot of the times, pay to get featured in magazines... it sucks. even the smaller band things are like this now

Two words: Crazy Town.

They got on a major label and were all over radio and on MTV with a huge budget video as soon as their first single was released.

Before their album was released (on a major, remember), they had never played a show.

The music industry sucks, and plays its customers for fools. Period. <-- CapnObvious

so sad

instead of rotating music types they should spend less money and get maybe 2 types of musicians/bands to perform. this is so retarded. i cant imagine anyone paying money to see this band

I knew they'd take the cheap route.

No way I'm going. And I'll bet I'm not alone in that decision.

if we all didn't know that Crossfade was the cheaper band

then I wouldn't have a problem with the attitude and tone of this email

I don't understand why the homecoming committee couldnt pool their resources with the folks at Lincoln Theatre, Disco Rodeo, or any other place that has experience bringing concerts to the area

Just by looking at bands that are coming to the Raleigh area that week, like Sevendust and Cake, they couldve at least worked something out to have those bands or someone even better play.

Dashboard is asking 75K
Green Day wanted 150K

I would have rather paid $20 to see Green Day, than $10 to see Dashboard


fuck our homecoming committee

The Andrew WK show I saw at Lincoln is a very fond memory, and I hate Lincoln more than I can express in words.
