Recession Festivals: Put Your Langerado Tickets on Layaway

Continuing Riptides coverage of minute recession realities: So this years Langerado lineup was announced earlier today. It is the perfect music festival for sensitive, "eclectic" frat boys. Death Cab! Snoop Dog! Dashboard! Matisyahu!

Anyway, because the economy sucks and festival tickets are generally pricey they are instituting a lay away plan of sorts, according to NME. You can divvy the price up into three easy parents of $X.99!

Of course, because this years bill is generally free of jam bands this might be the first Langerado aimed at actual poor people instead of white, suburban, upper-middle class neo-hippies who just like to pretend to look poor.
