    Looking at the lineup (except De La Soul), no wonder it’s free.

    Tony, had you seen Cowboy Mouth on Saturday at the Roxy, you’d have included them in your exception list. Phenomenal live show, I can’t wait to see them again!

    Rumor has it that the FLAMING LIPS are playing too… At least according to their tour page:

    Correction: For 2 days Centennial Olympic Park will be transformed into a noisy barricade for anyone attempting to cut through from the Aquarium to Decatur St.

    The Flaming Lips are incredible live. Ya’ll obviously don’t know music. De La Soul, The Gourds, Big Star, Ozomatli, and Cowboy Mouth are all pretty good bands. Some better than others. Atl gets this free and some of ya’ll are complaining.
    I’m so pumped!

    The Flaming Lips rock!!!!!

    According to their AWWTM tour, they will rarely be in the US!

    Does anyone know what time the Lips will play? I find it hard to find info about SCMX online. I want to go, but I live in SC. The time of their performance influences my ability to come.

    Ozo is the shiznit! Who gives a rat’s behind about the Flaming Lips? They’re awful. If you go see Ozomatli on Saturday, you WILL immediately forget about the Flaming Lips and all the other crappy acts there (except for De La Soul – who RULE!!)

    Im more interested in Cowboy Mouth than the other bands…they put on one of the best live shows ive ever seen. i am curious about one thing: is the age policy heavily enforced? i am of legal age, but i have friends who are not, and they would like to go.
