    The Lineup Of Stereosonic As Guessed By A Mum

    "Music from another (surreal) world (space)!"

    I showed my mum a bunch of acts from the recently released Stereosonic lineup and asked her to tell me who she thought they were. These are her suggestions:

    Me: Okay, first off...What is Stereosonic?

    Mum: Um, I'll have a guess...

    Me: Yeah that's fine!

    Mum: ...Music from another (surreal) world (space)...

    Me: Okay...

    Me: Stereosonic is the name of the music festival we are talking about.

    Mum: Oh right, yeah.

    Skrillex - "Dan Shipiro."

    Mum: Looks like a Dan.

    Me: Dan who? What does he do?

    Mum: Dan Shapiro. He is very obviously a poet.

    Me: Yes, he's very poetic. His name is Skrillex. He is, like, a dubstep guy. Do you know what dubstep is?

    Mum: Nope...I think I will fail this test.

    Me: What do you think it is?

    Mum: I suppose it's dance...it does give it away with the 'step.'

    Tiësto - "Tom Sharp."

    Mum: Um...No idea. But I guess he is a muso. He plays bass.

    Me: His name starts with a 'T'.

    Mum: Tom.

    Me: Tom who?

    Mum: Tom Sharp.

    Me: No, his name is Tiësto.

    Mum: One word?

    Me: Like Cher.

    Disclosure - "Eyesore."

    Me: These guys are a duo. What do you think they're called?

    Mum: Eyesore. One word. Two guys.

    Me: "Eyesore?"

    Mum: Yep.

    Me: Close. They're called Disclosure.

    Peking Duck - "Egg Fu Mong."

    Mum: How many people are you talking to for this?

    Me: Just you...Ok. I'll give you a hint for this one. They are named after a Chinese dish.

    Mum: Egg Fu Mong.

    Me: I have never heard of that.

    Mum: They obviously sell jewelry and drink beer.

    Me: From the look of things, yes. But remember, this is a music festival. They make music. They're called Peking Duck.

    Mum: Of course, now I see it in their faces.

    Steve Aoki - "ZEN."

    Mum: How about we just call him ZEN.

    Me: "ZEN?"

    Mum: Yes.

    Me: His name is Steve Aoki. Boring old Steve Aoki.

    Nina Las Vegas - "Kitty."

    Me: Okay, who is this.

    Mum: Should know this one!!!

    Me: She is a girl, obviously.

    Mum: I bet it's a one word name...how about Kitty?

    Me: Ah, okay. What does she do?

    Mum: Singer.

    Me: Kitty the singer?

    Mum: Yes.

    Me: She's a DJ. Her name is Nina Las Vegas.

    Mum: Oh well...I like her eye shadow.

    Me: I'll let her know.

    Tigerlily - "Rainbow."

    Me: Who's this?

    Mum: Some silly girl who forgot her pants.

    Me: Hmmm....

    Mum: Her name is Rainbow.

    Me: What does she do?

    Mum: Writes a fashion blog.

    Me: At a music festival?

    Mum: Oh.

    Me: She's a DJ. Her name is Tigerlily.

    Mum: Okay...she has a great hair colourist.

    Duke Dumont - "Adam Penn."

    Me: What does he do?

    Mum: Muso, plays guitar.

    Me: Alright and his name?

    Mum: Adam Penn...I don't know I'm feelin' pretty stupid.

    Me: Don't feel stupid you're not expected to know! His name is Duke Dumont.

    So, here is the revised lineup:

    Damn, I'd go to that.
