There are a lot of music festivals for discerning fans to choose from lately. But this line-up would definitely make Pop Montreal 2012 (Sept 19-23) one of those festivals where this blogger runs around wild eyed and breathing through her mouth, in agony over all the bands she’s missing by watching whatever band she’s seeing.

Okay, Grimes? A Tribe Called Red? Lunice? Yamantaka // Sonic Titan? Zoobombs? Antibalas? Apollo 18? Mirel Wagner? Xray Eyeballs?! It’s a who’s who of every music crush we’ve ever had ever and Onyx. It’s four hundred acts in all. Does that even make sense to you?
Gotye? Really? MTV Iggy, this is your iPod! See you there?
