Night 2 KAAC

Night 2 of the KROQ Almost Acoustic Christmas has been announced and let me tell you...It's a bit of a shocker..

Gnarls Barkley - Wasn't expecting yet not a surprise

She Wants Revenge - Wasn't expecting but a nice surprise

Angels and Airwaves - Got it

The Raconteurs- Got It

Snow Patrol - Got It

Evanescence- WTF?!?!?! Freakin KIIS FM reject band who no showed at the 2004 KROQ Weenie Roast...or was it 03? This band blows and is all hype...I hope they no show again and there is an awesome surprise in place of them.

Panic at the Disco- Didn't guess but should have.

There better be some heavy hitters and more acoustic for night 2 or else Night 1 is the winner of the better nights

Just as I predicted two Heavy hitters were announced for the KROQ Acoustic Christmas



The Killers

KAAC update

I am 7 for 10 (nice combo) so far with the following acts confirmed for night 1 of the KROQ Acoustic Christmas:

Saosin (Pronounced SAY-OCEAN)

30 Seconds to Mars



Papa Roach

Fall Out Boy- This band fell out of no where to be playing this gig. They were booed out of Last Years Acoustic Christmas but brought back for this years? I don't get it. Hopefully Evanescence won't be the surprise guest

My Chemical Romance



Foo Fighters- I called for this band to headline night number 2. While I was still correct that they will be playing it throws me off for night number 2. It could mean that they are playing both nights one Acoustic (Night 2) and Non-Acoustic (Night 1)

Acoustic XMAS

Its that time of year again...the KROQ Almost Acoustic Christmas. This concert is by far my favorite of the year and one of the hardest concerts to get into, yet I have been to the past 5. Some bands that have played in the past years are Korn, Nine Inch Nails, Janes Addiction, Coldplay, Fiona Apple, Velvet Revolver, Brand New and many many more...Who will play this year? The announcement has not been made yet so as I do every year I am going to make predictions....

Night 1: (Not Acoustic)

Audioslave or Tool
My Chemical Romance - Possible headliner..for sure Co-Headliner
30 Seconds to Mars - Opening band
Papa Roach

Night 2: (More Acoustic)

Foo Fighters (Acoustic Set)
Snow Patrol
OK Go!

This is just a partial guess. I have a lot of things running through my mind right now so I will post later as I cannot currently think straight
