Lifehouse

Lucky them, hitting it big with the song, "Hanging By A Moment" in the early aughts. I'll admit, I still dig that song. Their music is geared towards businessmen and soccer moms who can afford $30 for a night of bubblegum guitar pop.

Gift of Gab

Front man of the duo Blackalicious. He is one of the fastest rappers alive, and one of my favorite hip hop performers. What a cool venue to catch him at.

Die Antwoord

I still can't figure out if this band is a joke, or why people like them. There is definitely internet buzz surrounding them, but could they even sell out the Doug Fir at this point? I almost want to go just to brag about seeing the smallest crowd in the history of the Crystal Ballroom, or to be extremely surprised by a bunch of weird fuckers who made it a point to attend. Maybe I'm underestimating their worth?
