I will call Laura a her but at the moment his name is still Tom...


Is the individual in question (I'm unsure of the correct pronoun here) living currently as male or female? Pre-op or post-op, you should be using "she" if they're living currently as a female (which is a stage they must go through for a substantial amount of time before the op), their genitals are their own concern, what gender they are is something they decide.

I know its being put everywhere that the '???' lock up act is 4th from top on sunday, but maybe itl be 2nd instead. As Chris from Gimme Gimmes will obviously be needed to play with Foos on the main stage halfway through the proposed times for them.. Unless someone will stand in for him?

My bad if its already been brought up.

Several times haha. His brother plays live. Chris just does the studio work

Also I don't think everywhere is putting the missing band fourth down.

Well 3rd/4th anyway, as its thought to being put before Gimme, Gimmes isnt it? Still hoping for NOFX to be honest, not looking forward to a double gaslight set. 2 Sets with fat mike would be much preferred.

Now there's an extra band on one of the days do we think the stage will open earlier that day (ie 11.30am) or will a number of sets be shortened in order to fit Möngöl Hörde in?

I mentioned that that a few days back. Seems logical.

Might even mean the mainstage opens early to allow the Cure longer :) but that's just be being hopeful :(

Doesn't matter. Tom/Laura is a girl for all intents and purposes, other than her sex.

wouldn't you just call someone by the name they wish to be called?

That's not what we are discsussing, 3 months ago I said something along the lines of I will start referring to Tom as a "him" up untill he starts calling himself Laura and living as women then I'll start refeffering to Laura as a "her" as he was still living as a man at that point (or still?).

Ever since this story broke I love listening to Against Me and picking up the extra meanings of songs like Ocean & Spanish Moss and I'm really looking forward to seeing them the next time they tour the UK.

Really like this song.

Is this the only song around? I can't find any other music by them, even on their facebook page.
If so, why are they playing 4th on the lock-up stage? they don't seem to be a big band at all.

EDIT: Realized it is Frank Turners new band!! Omg, I'm so excited now.

I watched Touche Amore, Saves the Day, Every Time I Die, Social D on the Saturday at Leeds Festival in the Lock Up Stage and couldn't help notice that there wasn't one big crowd for any of these bands and I'm just wondering whether anyone thinks that the Lock Up Stage has had its time at Reading and Leeds Festival i.e. the majority of the crowd that attends the festival these days just isn't interested in this type of music and maybe they would be better having say a UK tour instead?

I would interested if anyone actually saw the tent more than half full? I didn't see Gallows, Anti-Flag or Less Than Jake?

I don't think it's had its time, but I think it should go back to 1-day. That said, the Dance stage lineup has been pretty awful for the last couple of years.
