Hey, we thought it took 12 hours to release a festival lineup, so when InsideVandy.com released the deets on this year's Gathering of the Flip-Floppalos, we just figured they were gonna use "social media" to make us wait all day for ... aw hell, we were in a meeting and none of us saw when it went up this morning. We had important stuff to discuss! Also, we anti-climaxed enough yesterday to last us a lifetime. Anyway, looks like this year's Rites of Spring headliners are Ben Harper and Relentless7 and Drake. Not that you'd know from looking at the RoS website -- what is with this "We'll use anything but our own website to announce shit" trend? Why do you have a website, festivals?!

So yeah, Drake as in the guy who raps, "I can make your pussy whistle" (like the The Andy Griffith Show, no less) on that song "Best I Ever Had." Other artists you might be interested in laying down $55 in advance or $65 day of show to see while surrounded by Vanderbilt's chapter of the Future Embarrassing Facebook Photos of America club include Phoenix, Passion Pit and -- holy shit, Doug E. Fresh! The fest is Apr. 23 and 24, and tickets go on sale Feb. 22. Full lineup after the juh-juh.
