News just in: Janelle Monae plays the Electric Picnic in September. Yep, that’s Janelle Freaking Monae, the lady behind one of the albums of the year, a striking live performer and the sharpest android on the pop block right now. Is this a tipping point for EP 2010 ticket sales I see before me?

UPDATE: Also added to the bill today:

Mountain Man
Freelance Whales
Duke Special
Neon Indian
Dennis Alcapone & the Dubcats
Hurts
Delta Maid
O Emperor
Joe Echo
Vengeance & the Panther Queen

Meanwhile, our old friend “unforeseen circumstances” removes Memory Tapes and Breakestra & Chali 2 NA from the bill.
