Not So Silent Night 2008 Features Killers, Death Cab, Bloc Party, Franz Ferdinand: Presale Thursday At 10AM

Live 105's perennial Not So Silent Night has made an upgrade this year: The show has left its traditional digs at the Bill Graham Civic Center and moved to the monumental Oracle Arena. Essentially, this means that the city's biggest and most over populated show has become even bigger and more overpopulated, and also has left the city. Indeed.

This year's show will feature The Killers, Death Cab For Cutie, Bloc Party, Franz Ferdinand, and Jack's Mannequin (We'll be honest: we've never heard of Jack's Mannequin. Is that bad?). A pretty epic lineup: we like to call it the "Hot Indie Bands Of '04 Who Have Gone To Major Labels" lineup. Okay, seriously though, enough snark: If you do in fact want to go, there's a presale this morning (Thursday) at 10. The password is "oakland". Indeed.

Kudos to Aaron Axelson for booking yet another killer (no pun intended) Live 105 concert event!

I can't wait to find out who Live 105 got to play their pre-Not So Silent Night party. (I really hope they get Vampire Weekend or Ra Ra Riot)
