I'm really hoping for a Tuesday, The Honor System, and The Broadways reunion! I'd be excited for just about anyone from the Slapstick family tree of bands. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slapstick_Family_Tree)

From Punknews.org (http://www.punknews.org/article/40664)

Next year, Asian Man Records will celebrate their 15th anniversary. In honour of this, label founder Mike Park is aiming to reunite every band that ever released on the label for a festival set to take place June 16th, 17th and 18th at the Parside and the Bottom of the Hill clubs in San Francisco, CA.

While this is an ambitious goal and has not yet been confirmed, some of the possible bands would include: The Broadways, MU330, Chris Murray, Alkaline Trio, Slapstick, Tuesday, The Honor System, The Chinkees, Less Than Jake, Nicotine, Slow Gherkin, The Lawrence Arms, Ee, Dan Potthast, Colossal, Polysics, Just A Fire, Mike Park, Duvall, Toys That Kill, Bagheera, Link 80, Good For Cows, Short Round, Big D And The Kids Table, Screeching Weasel, Coquettish, Satori, Pama International, The Bruce Lee Band, Shinobu, Akiakane, The Queers, No Torso, Buck-O-Nine, Bomb the Music Industry!, Lemuria, Andrew Jackson Jihad, Kepi Ghoulie, Wardogs, O Pioneers!!!, For.the.Win., Classics of Love, Smoking Popes, Knowledge, Let's Go Bowling, Five Iron Frenzy and Sundowner.

Park is hoping to have 50 bands play at two venues (each holding about 300 people) over three days.

The confirmed list of bands so far are: MU330, SLOW GHERKIN, THE QUEERS, THE APERS, SHINOBU, THE HOT TODDIES, THE WILD, MONKEY. KEVIN SECONDS (of 7 Seconds), BUCK-O-NINE, UNSTEADY, SHORT ROUND, GRANT OLNEY, READY THE JET, MIKE HALE (of Gunmoll), CLASSICS OF LOVE (Jesse Michaels of Op Ivy's current band), and O PIONEERS!

No way Five Iron's gonna reuinite. I went to their last show and it was amazing. If they were going to get together for anything it would probably be the Cornerstone festival and I don't even see that happening. They could maybe try to get just Reese Roper or something.

If they got a Mealticket or Softball reunion on the bill, I'd fly out just for it. :D

Smoking Popes has gotten back together, so maybe that could happen. Fingers crossed.

If Screeching Weasel, The Lawrence Arms, Link 80 and Less Then Jake play I'm there. I saw Screeching Weasel a couple of months ago in Seattle and it was rad, seeing them play a 300 person club would be the best day of my life.

Lawrence Arms are my favorite band and it's been 4 or so years since I've seem them live so them playing will definitely get me there :)

Screeching Weasel and Less Than Jake are two of the least likely to play. Ben and Mike Park had a falling out and he took all the Screeching Weasel albums back from Asian Man, (http://www.punknews.org/article/36514) and Less Than Jake supposedly have issues with Asian Man as well, allegedly claiming (http://www.punknews.org/article/6186)they weren't getting the correct amount of royalties from "Pezcore."

Ben Weasel has an issue with every single person he has ever met.

Laura Stevenson added! I'm really excited about that addition. You can download her first album for free here (http://quoteunquoterecords.com/qur019.htm). Kinda Neutral Milk Hotel-y influence singer/songwriter stuff.

Brendan Kelly and Toys that Kill have been confirmed. Supposedly Five Iron Frenzy dropped some hints on their twitter that they are going to reunite for it (I haven't checked the twitter to confirm this).

SLAPSTICK are reuniting for this!!! Now I have to go! For those that don't know, Slapstick was a punk/ska band whose members went on t form or join Alkaline Trio, Less Than Jake, Lawrence Arms, Honor System, The Broadways, and more. The Slapstick family tree lists (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slapstick_Family_Tree)all the bands spawned by their break up.
