Liz and I aren't at SP20 so we have time speculate and we've got a good working theory that there's a magical secret headliner tonight and it's going to be the Postal Service.
- Wolf Parade ends at 9p so there's no band scheduled in the 9-10p timeslot. Wolf Parade, while grand, are probably not the epic ending the a 20-year anniversary festival deserves.
- Death Cab has no date on their website for tonight.
- Postal Service's Give Up was Sub Pop's best selling album since Nirvana's Bleach.
- Jimmy Tamberello's relative (brother?) is at the festival, photographing and goods.
- Ben Gibbard is likely playing this show in order to get out of any contractual obligation to record a second Postal Service record (wlld-ass speculation).
That's our theory and we're sticking to it.
What's your theory?
