Of Course Our Dream Edgefest Lineup Includes Ol' Dirty Bastard and Steely Dan
With the 22nd annual Edgefest approaching this Sunday, we started to get a little cultural vertigo looking at the lineup: Garbage, Cake, Evanescence? The Black Keys are the big draw, sure, but it brought us back into that late '90s vortex, where the pants were wide and pop music was at its cavity-tingling peak.
Steely Dan: A great band for Edgefest or the GREATEST band for Edgefest?
As we steadied ourselves on a stack of Now That's What I Call Music! CDs, we started coming up with suggestions for next year's fest, based solely on the most ludicrous decade-appropriate pairings we could think of, and our desire to actually see them happen.
Ladysmith Black Mambazo
Metallica (only playing "Enter Sandman")
Temple of the Dog reunion
Garth Brooks as Chris Gaines
Ol' Dirty Bastard as hologram
