New MRF 4 lineup thread

The previous thread was getting a little long so I wanted to start a new one. I was sorry to see some negative and "meh" comments in there. For me, this lineup is great! I've often thought one of the mixed blessings of this site for me is getting introduced to great music from artists in other countries. Good, because i enjoy the music on CD but bad because I will probably never get to see most of these bands live. So when I see that we've got a show in Chicago next year featuring The Poodles, H.E.A.T., Degreed, Work of Art, House of Shakira, Faith Circus, and Grand Design...all of whom I love (so to heck with the haters) I have to say "Thank you! That is awesome!" Then to bring back Talon, Tango Down, 7th Heaven, Maxx Explosion, and Adriangale who were all great at previous MRFs AND throw in other artists I'm interested in seeing live for the first time like Stan Bush and Mitch Malloy, I am pleased. Yes, I'd have loved to see W.E.T. and House of Lords come back (especially since the latter is releasing a new CD next year), but those are minor quibbles - saw them at MRF 3 already and they were great!

Some of the "meh" comments seemed to be stemming from lack of familiarity. Seriously, people - check these bands out! That's what I did for MRF 2 - "Farcry? Who's that?" And then found I loved their debut CD and they did a great set to open that Saturday. (By the way, glad Mark Giovi's new band is coming to MRF4 too!) My familiarity with the work of the late Brett Walker also stems from his initial inclusion in the MRF 3 lineup.
