THE OFFICIAL COACHELLA CAMP ALL ALONE CLUB MESSAGE BOARD this will take the place of the e-mail list that was started. Yes, it's another board but it's only to be used for solo campers who want up to date and accurate information. Eveyone on the list below should visit the new message board and register so we can remain organized! Newbies please continue to PM me if you want to join us and also sign up for the solocampers message board. We all need to remain on the same PAGE!!! This group is growing rather fast and we all want to maintain respect and get to know eachother and ultimately have a great time!

http://s3.excoboard.com/exco/index.php?boardid=9425

PLEASE REGISTER ON THAT BOARD WITH THE SAME NAME TO AVOID CONFUSION

I figured now was as good a time as any to begin this thread considering all other things travel and hotel wise are already well underway and selling out.

Once a full list is compiled of those who are basically camping but have no other peeps to camp with, we will then see if we can have a reserved area of space so we can all camp near eachother. Last year was a blast and I think we had maybe 20 or so people.

If you want on the list just say so and you will be added. Try to only say you want to participate if you are really sure. All are welcome of course. I think our list was over 50 last year and we got about half of that.

IF YOU ARE ON THE LIST AND CHANGE YOUR MIND PLEASE LET ME KNOW

So welcome!!!!!!


update

DEADLINE FOR SIGNUP WILL BE MONDAY APRIL 14TH 2008 MAKE SURE IF YOU ARE JOINING US YOU SEND A PM TO KindigerJ AND SIGN UP AT THE MESSAGE BOARD BELOW THAT IS ALL YOU HAVE TO DO, NOTHING ELSE, HURRY YOU ONLY HAVE UNTIL APRIL 14TH!!

Add me to the list please. I'm going this year but my friends are already sketchy about the cost of the trip. Everyone is giving me the customary "yeah, I'm totally down to go" but when it comes to throwing down the $$$ for tickets their tune usually changes...weak.

Hope everyone here likes to party. This year I’ll already know how easy it is to sneak “party favors” into the campgrounds.

Seriously, on the website it said no alcohol etc. but people were bringing 18 packs of beer without doing much to hide it. I got a handle of vodka but was sneaky about it thinking I was going to get checked. I was almost disappointed they didn't even try to search me after I so diligently hid everything....this year is going to be crrrazzzzyyy!

Its amazing what proper hydration, decent nutrition, and a nap during the day will do for your energy level.

Then theres the person I went with last year. She wouldn't listen to me when I said she needed to eat and drink a lot more than she was and then proceeded to whine about having a headache and "feeling bad". You're in the desert, its called heat stroke...derrrrrrr! (she is now my ex-girlfriend)

There was four of us last year and one of my buddys did that last but luckily i didnt have to deal with him he would drink soda all day not take off his beanie and would bitch about how he felt like throwing up. He didnt make it Sat

01-06-2008, 10:35 PM
I try to enjoy myself but didn't make it all three nights last year. On Saturday I fell asleep on top of about an eight that I was rolling up for the next day. Waking up and realizing that I slept on top of my bud sucked.

I was able to rescue most of it... thankfully.
And I had enough energy to survive, and I do mean survive, rage.

Where were you? I was on the right side just behind the second barrier, so pretty close, and it was out of control. Maybe that spot was a bit more rowdy than others because theres no way I could describe it as not bad at all. Either way, the set was epic.

Yes, that. Plus, if you show up alone, you're going to get stuck between other people or other groups. It was nice to be next to people we'd been chatting with via the board and who we know were not going to be assholes. And having more people meant that we had enough space shared to be able to set up some shade and chairs. And hopefully enough people get there early to grab a nice spot. I liked where we were at last year.

Yea.... let's see, you turned 21 a few months ago? I'm sure you know more about these things than those of us who have a generation or more of experience over you. :)

Honestly, I don't think I even really drank that much last year. Between standing in the heat for so many hours and dancing and getting like 4-6 hours of sleep at night, there is no way I'd have been able to have the "epic" Coachella you think you're going to have. I'd so much rather be able to get up and go see bands the next day and feel good about it rather than be dragging ass feeling miserable from what I did the day before.

You might ruin your fucking weekend. Got it? Christ dude, relax and don't be obnoxious about all your dope.

I couldnt see them coming in and busting you for smoking in your tent and they certainly didnt care about alcohol. I think their main concern was people there for the express intent of dealing aka the pirate tent.

our whole camping group was right next to the cop tent (other side of the fence for those who werent there) and we were lighting up from the moment we got there...at first i was pretty paranoid, but eventually (must have been the brownie, smoking, and drinking of my tequila sunrises) was more relaxed...remember the cops taking away the dude with the tupperware of fungus?

Went to Conference 99-2002, and I'm finally going back again this year. Much love for WMC. We'll see about Coachy. It'll be my fourth year if I make it, and probably alone as well, since all my Coachy-loving friends are either pregnant or spending money on weddings. Erg.

WMC 2007 last year was good, but man it rained at Ultra on Day 2, in fact it was like monsoon season so i was pretty peeved having travelled from the 'home of rain' a.k.a London town to be drenched in supposedly sunny Miami... so bailed pretty quickly on the festival on the second day... whatever else you do you HAVE to go to the F**k Me I'm Famous party that David Guetta from Ibiza throws it is amazing and Martin Solevieg, Joachim Garraud and Bob Sinclair usually play at that party too.
Miami is ok, Ibiza is better, I go there every year with out fail, but im looking forward to my 1st Coachella!

Yea, I remember them being there, but I don't remember them hassling anyone.... I totally missed this whole mushrooms thing. I am getting the feeling that there are several points of the weekend (mostly at night) that I missed, and I was sober.... ?

Oh and whoever mentioned no tailgating (was that on this thread?), plenty of people were drinking in the parking lot. We had a TON of beer in our car which never made it into the campgrounds (due to lack of effort, the cooler was heavy). I am rather ashamed to say that that cooler is actually still sitting on my kitchen floor, still mostly full with that beer. (I drank all the cider though). I kept forgetting it was in there, and now I'm kind of afraid to open it. I might put it outside and see if someone is brave enough to risk exposure to something toxic in 9 month old cooler funk to have a beer.

Well, what they did last year is waited until late April, got a list of names and emails everyone who was still in, collected mobile numbers from those who were willing to give them, sent the list to everyone. Some of us showed up with the list and they let us hold a ton of spots against the list of names. And then found people by calling/texting. Not everyone found the spot, but I think we had more than 20, didn't we?

So I am planning to make 2008 my first Coachella experience. I will be book the whole of April off, spend most of the time in New Zealand and then head off to LA for Coachella (too soon to ask for a ride?). Should be a fun time. This is going to be my first real holiday in about 8 years so I'm hoping this is going to be good.

Still going to take ages to get everything ready, and i reckon I should get an award for the most spent on Coachella (about £2.5K). As this is my first time I am planning on camping, so i will be keeping an eye on this thread!

I went to Coachella in 2004...and I want to make it this year! I'll be coming by myself if I can scrape the money together. I just moved out to NYC from CA, so I plan to fly back to my hometown and grab my car, steal a tent, and make my way on down :)

I would love to meetup with some people. The first time I went was entirely last-minute...me and the guy I went with camped out in what turned out to be a shooting range one night, and the next night slept in my car. I DO NOT want to sleep in my car again. That sucked so bad.

Sleeping in a car seems like it would be really miserable unless you kept it running with a/c all night. Even if you don't have a hotel and miss out on onsite camping tix, aren't there off-site places to camp?

It was miserable. EVERYTHING was booked for like a 2 hour radius in all directions. I couldn't run the a/c because my car had overheating issues...my car is not built for the desert. This is why I'm going to plan a bit more this year, and not be afraid to camp by myself.

Ooooh look at all the 2007 regulars back on the message boards! Much love to last year's attendees. *muah*

So I have to admit that I'm in a dilly of a pickle this year. Bjork's performance was my impetus to go last year, and for whatever God-knows-why reason, I'm a bit lackluster about it all this year. Plus, I'm weighing Coachella with a possible week-long trip to Costa Rica, and that I will have most likely moved to Jacksonville by the time it rolls around.

Anyone wanna kick me in the ass and get me a little more stoked about Coachella 2008???

chiapet
01-21-2008, 04:15 PM
Agreed. I'm not the biggest Roger Waters solo fan, but DSOTM in its entirety will be incredible.

And, you know, I didn't even into headliners last year. Bjork was a tough call, but conflicted with Gogol Bordello. I watched RATM but it wasn't 'epic' like everyone thought it would be (to me, anyway). and I don't like RHCP.

I'm sure there will be tons of other stuff to watch. I'm actually more excited about Portishead, Love & Rockets, Kraftwerk, etc, than I was about headliners last year.

Is this a good time for me to admit I've never even heard of Jack Johnson? :)

faxman75
01-21-2008, 05:01 PM
Yep, I have to study up on Kraftwerk. I'm not very familiar. I think Jack Johnson wont' headline. We will get an addition. I'm truely stumped by that one. He's pretty much a nobody. He had a single or maybe two but that's it.

chiapet
01-21-2008, 05:04 PM
Yea, I think the poster is too spacious, too, so maybe something more will be added. I'm not too worried about it.

Someone pointed out that Sunday had less bands and more potential adds, but I'm assuming Waters is going to play a long set.

faxman75
01-21-2008, 05:08 PM
Yep, i'm happy happy happy. This exceeded my expectations.

Are you camping again this year too chia? Did we even meet last year? Its' all a blur to me :lol: I was shy and didn't talk a whole to people. I think I said about 8 words to Bird the whole weekend. Hung out with Phuc and Bet a little. Also talked to Danny jigawig and Amanda. I think Vic had a smile on his face the whole weekend.

Anyway i'm damn excited about this year!

I think we're posting randomly on both. And good to see you!

faxman, I am pretty sure we met, but I was busy being too hot and grouchy. And passing out after the last set from exhaustion. I'm going to do better this year, even if it means I have to practice drinking and dancing in the sun for weeks before hand. I am also much less crabby now anyway because my life isn't sucking as much. Yah! :P

Portishead is really great. That is one of the bands I'm most excited about. You'll hear people whine that they'll be boring "live" - check out some of the live stuff on youtube, though, or pick up the Roseland album (a live album with the NY Philharmonic). I really do think that all of their albums and even singles are solid, but I'm a fan. They also have not been around for several years, so it's awesome to get a chance to finally see them. I can't wait. :)

This year is already feeling a lot different mood wise from the type of bands they have booked so far. Should be interesting.

Have I mentioned how excited I am about Love & Rockets? eeeeeee

My. God.
I really didn't believe the people who complained about how much the board sucked right after the lineup was announced last year (I joined a few weeks later). Holy crap, people are a bunch of whiners. Boo hoo, I have to go see 40 or more bands in 3 days and none of them is Radiohead.

So these people just drop off the board in a week or two after they decide they're not going, right? Please say yes. :)

faxman75
01-21-2008, 07:58 PM
I doubt it, what a fucking uproar though. It's comedic. I saw Portishead in like 1995 maybe during the Dummy tour at the Vic Theater in Chicago. I loved it. Very memorable as they opened up the show with a movie to their music. Very interesting band. I love her voice too. I have all the albums but haven't listened to them in forever so i'm studying up.

I'm downloading some kraftwerk though I hear their show is amazing live, something about robots, sounds good to me. Then the Breeders and the Raconteurs. Man, I haven't been this excited about so many bands in a long time. This is going to be good.

Oh and Metric and the National and the much talked about Justice. I can't fucking wait.

01-21-2008, 08:17 PM
You're lucky - I never got to see Portishead. So i'm really glad I have the chance again. I am still kicking myself that I skipped Justice at Mezzanine (semi-small-ish club here) and now am going to wind up seeing them at the vile concourse. Now that I know they're at Coachella, though, I might end up selling my concourse tix.

Metric is interesting. They're not that great live, but seemed like they were really having fun. I can appreciate that. I mean, CSS was one of my fav sets last year.

I noticed that CSS is putting out a new album soon too. woo :)

No, they're not, and I doubt they'd be invited back already (despite Hot Chip and Gogol doing back to back appearances). If it makes you feel any better, they are not very good live! LOL that's an understatement really. (I brought them up in comparison to Metric - who really aren't that bad).

The album is good though - you should buy or steal their self-titled album. and as I was mentioning, they have a new one they are working on.

The CSS album though... every single person I've played it for has really really liked it. It's just stupendously catchy.

well you're right in that kraftwerk are innovators, but it's more than that. the whole technocratic mindset purported in music like daft punk and nine inch nails (not so big on them) was pioneered by kraftwerk, wherein man sees itself getting lost and/or succeeded by the machine. without them, we'd probably never see most of the dance music coming to coach this year.

besides, it's a marvel that they were even able to make the sounds they were able to make. there was no precedence for the music they were making--they just did it. it's like what the who did with guitars and drums; but these guys had to make their guitars and drums.

Gotcha, i'm always hit or miss with electronic acts. I have a love hate relationship with it for some reason. I used to go to raves and just loved loved loved harcore. There was this guy Nicky Fingers who used to blow me away. I always loved Portisehead, the Orb and Orbital were good. I used to watch Liquid MTV and they used to have a killer show called AMP. My favorite video of all time was "The Box" by Orbital. Only recently have I tried to get into a little bit more. I have "buriel". It's decent stuff. I love Daft Punk, but I have no clue about half the DJ's out there. Tiesto really sucked. I don't really dig Oakenfeld.

I guess I would like to know what hardcore dj's are still out there. Is that even still a genre of electronic? I love the NIN sounding stuff.

Anyway, i'm going to creat a thread elsewhere about this as well. :)

fax: get on board the ed banger train. justice, sebastiAn, kravinsky, etc. institubes is really great for that too, as are boyz noize and to a lesser extent junkie xl (much lesser extent). the harder stuff that you like has been transfered to electro for the most part, while NIN is moving more in the alternative direction that they started spooning up on With (uh) Teeth (uh). so give that a shot, I'd say.

Seriously, on the website it said no alcohol etc. but people were bringing 18 packs of beer without doing much to hide it. I got a handle of vodka but was sneaky about it thinking I was going to get checked.

faxman75
01-25-2008, 10:14 AM
Well the idea is to actually have a group camp where we are all near eachother and hanging out before and after the show, unless there is all kinds of gay sex going on, I might get intimidated and have to camp elsewhere. heh

dontfeedthebird
01-25-2008, 10:28 AM
no. the idea is camping alone - together. although most of us weren't alone last year after all. (and the camp wasn't nearly this gay so don't worry newcomers).

Back to the issue at hand, I actually saw LSD about 2 months ago. It was hilarious, cuz I haven't seen people carry around jugs of o.j. since 1992.

As was a concern of mine last year... I found one gentleman to barter with one time, then turned all other propositions away. For all who were there last year, I wasn't too out of control was I? With the exception of getting drunk and running out of my tent with those nude undies on the first night. tee hee

are you "officially" camping alone monsoon? this thread is too long to tread back to

MonsoonSeason
01-25-2008, 12:35 PM
yep

I should have kept contacts and relations on the board after coachella, because then I'd be in a house. however, I am armed with knowledge of last year (shower early, no weed, no laptops, bring battery charger, drink tons of water) so I think I'll be able to hold it down.

01-25-2008, 12:36 PM
what do you mean no weed??

01-25-2008, 12:37 PM
man

friday I ate some cookies with lots of thc dancing inside of them and ended up
1. throwing up during noisettes (where'd they go, anyway?)
2. having a headache
3. passing out for part of busdriver

twas a thing to be sure :/

sbessiso
01-25-2008, 12:39 PM
hmm, lesson learned. since im flying there, im not sure if ishould risk smuggling some herb on the plan or have my fingers crossed and try to buy there, along with my psychadelics

i wish coachella was like bonnaroo when it comes to this

MonsoonSeason
01-25-2008, 12:43 PM
word on the street is that cali green is life-changing

just cram it in your underwear and make sure you don't get strip searched

or did i misunderstand that?

MonsoonSeason
01-25-2008, 12:47 PM
poor wording choice on my part

if you must bring weed, stuff it in the drawers

if you don't mind dishing out, buy cali green because I hear it is amaaaazing

sbessiso
01-25-2008, 12:49 PM

im sure peeps will be selling there, i dont really remember in 06, i smuggled weed when i went, but finding shrooms was damn hard, fucking bonnaroo has everything just pouring out

01-25-2008, 12:51 PM
just stay away from goofy dudes in heineken apparel

actually just don't buy on the festival grounds at all--campgrounds okay, but not the festival grounds.

oh also don't just walk through camp asking people for drugs by their actual names like one girl did last year, hahaha

"you guys have any magic mushrooms or acid?" hahaha

I did cid in '06 right before Massive Attack and TOOL, then went and danced in the rave dome and watched the tesla coil until the line of security guards pushed everyone out. If anyone else was there, they'll remember all of us fans lining up against the security line trying to get them to play Red Rover.

LOL! Good times!

Bird, once it got close to festival time last year, who and how did you ask for the area on the campground? Did you just send a PM to PF letting her know the deal or did you just arrive that day with the list and give it to the camp folks?

It says in the camping FAQs that whoever is there first should tell the registration people how many you have joining you. Then when the others get there, they say they are part of the "Camping Alone Group" or whatever you want to list the group as and they will direct all those in the group to the area.

When i'm baked i will fuck around with the shirts. Since it's fucking hot, it will be a white shirt with a black or different color lettering.
