beautiful and drunk and singing softly to yourself

I'm going out on a limb here and predicting that Iggy Pop will be one of the headliners at Sled Island Music Festival this year.

Okay, it's a pretty sturdy and secure limb, in the face of other recent news, but I am still giving myself kudos for having figured it out early. I know for a fact the Sled organizers snared a couple of big names when they were in Chicago a few months ago, and hey, doesn't Iggy Pop still live in Chicago?

I really need to buy my Sled tickets pretty damn soon if I don't want to miss out on the chance to hobnob with Mr Osterberg.

Do you know who I really wish would come to town though?

Ballboy

Anywhere in North America would be close enough for me, actually. I'm up for a roadtrip.

This video is for Charlie, because Dick Clark won't play it:

I bet Iggy would be a blast.

Allison said...

I hope your guess is right. That would be one hell of a show.

Do Ballboy not tour NA? What a shame...

Yay, it's time for Slut Island again!

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Are you going to the free show in Toronto, Mr Anchovy?

He would fit in well with the general craziness that is Sled Island, Al.
Evidently Ballboy only tour the UK and Germany, which saddens me immensely.

Hurray for Slut time, Beckeye!

Charlie said...

Unless my hearing is shot, I didn't hear anything about dicks in that song. Mea culpa, y'all.

And you'd better get your tix or you'll shoot yourself. But wait--bullets don't work on Zombies, do they?

Ballboy's playing in Yellowknife this summer...

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Pretty much only in that first line, Charlie, which was the same as the title. Hey maybe Richard Clarke would play it after all!
And yes, I would hate to have to gnaw off my own arm to get tickets.

I could not take a chance that you didn't make that up, John. I had to check. Now my heart is broken.

John Mutford said...

I'm so sorry Barb! My ploy to get you to visit Yellowknife has backfired. Hey, you could still visit to bitch-slap me!

I need to enroll in the Barb School of Music for a couple weeks. Every time I think I know something, I realize there is so much more to know. This may not seem relevant to your post, but trust, it is.

Barbara Bruederlin said...

I have to give you points for trying, John. Some day I will make it up there and there won't even be any bitch-slapping involved.

One thing I have learned from you is that everything is relevant, Lesley. You always manage to find that one thing that make it all make sense.

bloody awful poetry said...

I think I am in love with Ballboy now. They had me at "the size of my dick". Oh the poetry!

Barbara Bruederlin said...

How could you not love them, BAP? And you didn't even need to mention the accents.

Sean Wraight said...

I definitely think you're on to something with that prognostication my friend... Iggy and the Stooges would be the perfect addition to any King Khan curated event. Let's hope it warms up for the shirtless one by then... Just wouldn't be the same to see him in his parka.

I'll go out on a limb too and predict Arcade Fire will also be added to the festy mix. Which would just about clinch Slut Island as the coolest festival out there.

Oh and happy birthday Iggy!

I sure hope somebody thought to buy Iggy a shirt for his birthday, Sean. The perfect gift for the man who has everything, except a shirt.
Arcade Fire? Nice guess! And that would be utterly cool. Curious to know how you arrived at that though...
