End of the Road: another dozen

More good news from the End of the Road Festival camp. Another 12 artists announced yesterdy. They are, in order of appearing in the alphabet, Bob Lind, David Thomas Broughton, Darren Hayman, Dirty Projectors, First Aid Kit, Herman Dune, Iain Archer, The Leisure Society, Neko Case, Richmond Fontaine, Tiny Vipers, Wildbirds & Peacedrums.

No more big names for now, and no Sunday headliners yet (my money’s on either PJ Harvey & John Parish, or Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy), but plenty to be excited about. Wildbirds & Peacedrums are the ones I’m most excited about. I’m hoping for a more accomodating time slot for them this year, and they will no doubt be brilliant. DTB is becoming an EOTR fixture, but not as much as Darren Hayman, who’s now officially the house band. The Leisure Society were as inevitable as they are welcome. Will be good to finally check out Dirty Projectors. And as will all EOTRs, there’s always a bunch of artists I’ve never heard of before, so I’m off now to find out who Tiny Vipers are.

    I want to go so bad. Need to do 2 things:
    1) find money
    2) find people who want to come

    I thought you’d like that EOTR line-up, what with Neko, Wildbirds and all the others.

    If money’s a problem, you should try to go for the stewarding option. You might not get to see all the bands you want, but you will still see some, and it’ll still be great…
