VOODOO Lineup & the Human Response

Worship the daily announcements?

One day at a time, this long, strange experiment in fan patience and social media outreach continues, leaving the festival’s more loyal fans anxiously awaiting daily afternoon artist announcements via Voodoo’s Facebook and Twitter feeds. Of course, the reviews each day are met with a mix of both real and trollish criticism and genuine enthusiasm as each new act rolls across the news feed. Here are some of the varied responses to yesterday’s announcement that TV on the Radio would be joining this year’s ritual:

From the Zuckerbook:
Fuckin’ Right! Finally some good news!!!
Who is this?
That’s still not Radiohead
I just soiled myself
Seriously really really happy like this!! WOLF LIKE ME! ♥
I didn’t realize you were going to resume w these frustrating daily announcements. Please don’t do this again. It’s the most unpopular thing in the history of unpopular things.
Meh, just another filler.
People are so sensitive to what others say about artists, as if they’re on a personal level with them.

And my personal favorite: Creed are alt rock legends…up there with the Beatles/stones/nirvana as a life changing band

Twitterverse responses to @VoodooNOLA:
@rscassaly – @wolfe @voodoonola best band on the lineup so far
@alex_rawls – After a week of radio silence, @VoodooNola returns w the addition of TV on the Radio

Recently, Hodges moved on to L.A. where Abita Beer is hard to find, costs about $6 if located and impromptu parading in the streets will most likely get you arrested on the spot.

    Yeah, way to tease us with a Ween video. I am on the fence for this festival (I will be in town that weekend) and if Ween is there then I am there.

      It says Ween Live from Voodoo 2009. They are not playing, wish they were though.
