On the same day we find ourselves aimlessly awaiting Coachella’s lineup announcement, it’s a bit ironic that Langerado, another festival that made us wait quite a while for its 2009 bill, is out with its first round of additions and day-by-day schedule.
Unfortunately, for those hoping for Rage Against the Machine, the Dave Matthews Band, or any other candidate who has been rumored as potential option for the perceived lack of headliners on Langerado’s ’09 bill, today’s additions won’t tickle your fancy too much. We’ll, that’s unless you consider Modest Mouse on that same threshold. Yes, the Isaac Brock and Johnny Marr-led outfit head the latest acts to descend on Miami’s Bicentennial Park between March 6 and 8, a list wich also include the Gene Ween Band, Deerhunter, and Alberta Cross.
Add these names with the previously announced initial lineup and Langerado’s 2009 bill looks a bit something like this once you divide it up by days:
