!!! because I've seen the Klaxons 3 times now, and have seen !!! once.

I've seen !!! twice and the Klaxons 0 but I hear they're not too great live.

Klaxons are fun live, that Echoplex show was siiick. !!! is just a total party when they perform and its like 6 guys on stage going crazy.


!!! all the way.

I saw !!! at the El Rey and ended up getting on stage and dancing like crazy.

Either way, they're both cheap.

Klaxons are awesome live, dunno where you heard that. I thought the El Rey was a bit too posh of a setting for them though. The Echoplex was much more appropriate.

Usually i'd ask my girlfriend which show she'd like to go to more but she's stumped too. We saw their set at Amoeba the day before Coachella this year and she loved them and she loves the Klaxons too.

Damn, I'll concentrate on this after I get my Justice tickets.

What are Klaxons shows like? Is there dancing or is it just a bunch of snobby teenagers pushing?

!!!'s okay...nothing great or memorable, but Klaxons? Fuck Klaxons.

ficklecycle

Only reason I'd see Klax is because I haven't before.

seeing Klaxons at Echoplex was similar to seeing the Buzzcocks... boundless punk rock energy.

I'm really pissed I'm going to miss the !!! show here because I had to leave them to go get a good spot for AF and I was really bummed about having to go.

I didn't even catch !!! this year at Coachella and I don't remember why.

Not really a fan of !!!, but what I saw of Klaxons at Coachella, I LOVED! I had no idea who they were. One of the few bands I didnt look into before Coachella. If I got another chance to see them live, I would take it in a second.

Both, maybe crowd surfing. Crowd sufring a hipster girl in a dress can get pretty tricky seeing as you dont wanna put your hands in certain places.

Unless you wanna get arrested of course.

I know that !!! shows are just non stop dancing and they get fucking rowdy. I'm leaning more towards !!!.

I wandered over to the tent during !!!, and they sounded horrible. Just awful. I don't know what the Klaxons sound like yet.

I would put money on the fact that you were probably at the Sahara with Busy P and Mehdi...

Easy...

Never understood the hype w/the Klaxons leading up to Coachella. I caught part of their show and thought they sounded rubbish..

Is it ok to like both? Although the Klaxons album is a bit weak, they are infinitely better live. I'm going to see them tonight, so i'll let you know how it is. !!! have been great every time i've seen them.

!!! are the superior live show. I've seen both twice, and I'd recommend !!! over Klaxons, although both are good.

Looks like I'm going with !!! (after I get my Justice and, LA Detour tickets of course).

No Vegoose?

My gf is taking care of Vegoose until I make up the money.

I think she bough the tickets earlier today.

Awww... what a nice girl you have.

My girl fronted all the money for Daft Punk in Seattle, because I was struggling to get my Coachella money together.

That reminds me though, I need to buy her and my Vegoose ticket. Im sick of waiting on my friends. I dont wanna have to resort to ebay.

It'd be really easy to get jipped on eBay considering they don't send tickets till like two weeks before.

rage patton

Yeah exactly... my credit card is all paid off now... so I think I will buy tickets tomorrow morning

SHIT! Still need to e-mail them to see if they send tickets to Canada.

ficklecycle

I met up with some people I knew at Daft Punk. One of the guys said he just bought a new pair of shoes before the show, and he was showing them off.
After he said it, he looked around at other peoples shoes. Then looked at his own. He then said "People are gonna be stepin all over my new shoes, arent they?" I said "Yup. Didn't think about that?" He replied, "Nope."
It was funny.

!!! is way better live than Klaxons will ever be

Totally agreed.

Wasn't that !!! date the one they played with the Field opening? And no one mentioned that?

If that is in fact the show I'm thinking of, The Field was awesome, !!! were kind of boring. Left about three songs in because I wasn't really feeling it. Klaxons are worse live, but I prefer their album to !!!'s last one.

Weird thread bump, btw.
