But today Farm Aid unveiled the full lineup for its first-ever NYC event, and believe it or not, it’s remarkably similar to the raucous Rock the Bells festival that took place on the same plot of land in late July.
Okay, not so much: Willie Nelson, Neil Young, John Mellencamp, Dave Matthews and Tim Reynolds and The Allman Brothers Band are scheduled to play full sets. They’ll be joined by Counting Crows, Matisyahu, Guster, The Derek Trucks Band, Warren Haynes, Supersuckers, The Ditty Bops and Montgomery Gentry.
That’s a pretty solid fucking lineup [full of white people] for a random Sunday in September. It’ll take a star-studded roster to get fans off their couches on the first Sunday of the NFL season, but I think this may just do the trick.
