This news format is gross.

I was bummed when Death Grips broke up. Then when I first saw this on Facebook I almost jumped out of my chair in excitement. Then I realized DEP weren't playing the Michigan date.

Marius Budu: I have to say that COLD CAVE was a very disappointing choice for an opening act. I saw you guys in Copenhagen and their act was sub-par (to be polite about it). You guys are a creative force to be reckoned with and having someone like that open for you kind of lowers the bar.

Just my two cents...

Your set was absolutely pure fucking magic (as always) and I love the new album.

I don't want to go to Wantagh even though it's closer because TDEP won't be there.

No, TDEP are totally out of place too. Death Grips and NIN kind of works, although they would leave a lot of Soundgarden fans confused. Dillinger are gonna leave a lot of people cold just by having harsh vocals as much as anything.

mathcore superstars

Not my best choice of words, but I can't deal with "heroes" and "veterans" is overdone. They're the closest thing to superstars that that genre has.
