Missing from The Atlantis Kick Off List...
« on: April 05, 2023, 10:20:30 am »
Now that the big reveal has happened, what bands/artists/etc. would've you liked to have seen on this list that didn't make the cut, primarily "friends" of IMP/The Club.

Stephen Malkmus (maybe he's not a friend?)
Queens of the Stone Age (do they still exist, are they me too'd?)
Trey Anastasio
Ween (Definitely not a friend)
Built to Spill
Beck
St. Vincent
M. Ward

I like the idea of a ‘not a friend of IMP’ list
It think you are right on both… and they both were BFFs for the 90s /00s

Fugazi/Ian side project was surprisingly missing
 
I have got to imagine Seth talked to Ian… even would agree to a $5 door

Good call, but filed under hobo rock/not worh $44 + $11

And yes, anything tied to Ian is a no brainer but definitely not expected... more

Frank Turner (is he still a friend?)

I'd love to see Vapors of Morphine come thru, but I honestly don't know what their draw would be.

Overcoats is skipping DC on this tour...

Frank Turner (is he still a friend?)

My felling is he is not a friend even with the whole Josh/song/recording/live @9:30 you would think he would be
But he hasn’t played an IMP venue the last 4 times he came through

I think Malkmus is more a Black Cat friend

Well Seth says in one of those interviews some acts got the concept of the underplay and some didn’t….there’s surely a big part of the answer.

The biggest shocker by far - in terms of not being on the Atlantis list- is Trouble Funk. But there are plenty of possible explanations.

Some obviously are non possibilities…acts touring elsewhere…Stuart Murdoch had to cancel the US tour due to health so he isn’t going to fly to DC from Scotland to do this! Malkmus, after all the Pavement touring, probably will want to go home, right?  GBV would have been cool but they are off the road and I think Bob is recovering from some surgery or other….

The other surprise is the lack of a Dischord related act other than Grohl? But realistically how many Dischord acts have played the 930 the past 25 years? How many could command $44? I wanted to see Scream but at least two band members I think live in Los Angeles and they seem like an old friend that kind of found a new set of friends (Black Cat)

I am glad there are no Tiny Desk Unit or Slickee Boys….many of those acts worked well for the 35 anniversary FREE show but just wouldn’t work here.

Bob Mould, Henry Rollins….bit of a surprise maybe….

Mould plays DC so damn much though….and Rollins would have had to be spoken word….
