Okay, now that you’re caught up we can address Saturday.
The band that I’m most excited about seeing is Phantogram. If I get to hear them play “Mouthful of Diamonds” and “When I’m Small” I’ll consider Saturday a success. But there’s so much more—Colour Revolt, Cults and The Strange Boys are all up-and-comers that everyone is buzzing about. It’ll be interesting to see them now and decide for yourselves.
There are a couple of notable bands that aren’t on my list (A Place to Bury Strangers, Tom Tom Club) due to timing conflicts but that’s a good problem to have, right? I’m listing three bands for midnight because they are all very different. I’ll probably be checking out Cults but if you’ve never seen Pomegranates or The Sundresses I highly recommend them.

Hey, didn’t The Sundresses and Pomegranates both play at the same time last year as well?
Koala Fires have a new guitarist but I will be there. We’ll be celebrating the release of our Remix EP, The Sleeping in Our Sharks, and I’m bringing a bunch of old Koala Fires posters to give away for free.
I had Villagers on this list but they seem to have disappeared from the MPMF schedule. Does anyone know if they are they still playing?
