  1. The First Baptist Praise and Warship Band? I am SO there!

  2. Super Bowl Shuffle? Hells ya!

  3. Why do I have a feeling there is a name missing from this line-up?

      There are rumors circulating that this isn’t the final lineup, and many are hoping (and speculating) that Death Knelly and The Faith will be added. Fingers crossed.

  4. Damn, I guess I won’t even be able to avoid Bruce Springstein in Happyland anymore.

  5. That girl is poison.

  6. I wish I could be there. Perhaps Happyland 2010!
