10,000 Lakes Festival finalizes 2009 lineup


DMB to rock 10KLF. LOL!

With a spring tour headlining above the Hold Steady and an anchor spot at the bohemian Minnesota music festival 10,000 Lakes Fest, Dave Matthews Band seems to be having a bounce in their stock, which has squatted in the basement of the musical marketplace for nigh on a decade or so.

Today, two announcements from the hippie dippie outdoor festival. First, the already robust line-up has been bolstered by over a dozen late adds, and second, a rather run of the mill layaway plan is being installed to help consumers cope with the $159 sticker price.

The layaway option allows consumers bedraggled by the economy to pay a third now and hack up the remainder in two easy breezy payments somewheres down the line. It's being called the 10KLF Stimulus Package (har de har), and, if nothing else, ensures that bong rippers statewide wil be able to attend, even if they're living on a single hemp shoestring.
