I think I'll be spending both days in Staten Island, although I wouldn't mind seeing The Pixies and Gang of Four.

Tickets are a little pricey - they will be sold individually for each of the four concerts at $55.00 per show. A $100.00 discounted combo ticket will be made available to patrons that will be good for any two shows. There will also be a VIP Package available for $250.00 per show. Tickets go on sale on August 12th.

I think Coney Island (Sunday) sounds great, because I wouldn't mind seeing The Raveonettes and Belle & Sebastian. But it would be difficult to dump Doves (and Oasis).
Luckily I'm nowhere near, so I won't have to make a choice :)
