Primavera Sound

So I'm headed for a full week in Barcelona. The Primavera Sound lineup is disgusting. It might be the best line up ever....anywhere. Shellac, The Jesus Lizard, The Vaselines, Dan Deacon, The Intelligence, Liars, Lightning Bolt, Sonic Youth, Zu just to name a few of the 100+ artists. Lots of "up and comers" as well. There is even an ATP and Pitchfork stage. The indie kids all have hard-ons. The festival starts thursday, but there is a ton of bands playing in the days before as well. Also, Barcelona are playing the Champions League final on wednesday, so if they win we might be in the middle of the biggest party in years. God knows how I'm gonna survive this. The weekend after is my big releaseparty for Crash Normal and The Intelligence in Oslo. I don't know when I will be able to get a full nights sleep again...maybe by the end of june.

Anyone with Primavera tips? I'm drowning in bands and not sure what I'm gonna see. So much too choose from. I'm sticking with the small bands, although it would be cool to cross Neil Young off my list. He's like a legend or some shit.... anyway, which me luck.
