Hey-

I thought I would start a thread for people who were surprised when they didn't see their "shoe-in acts" on the poster.
These are acts that would make a lot of sense for Coachella this year.
Not necessarily wish lists.

For example, I am surprised that ...

The Kills
Adam Green
Menomena
Yeasayer
Liars
The Octopus Project
The Thermals

... Aren't at Coachella this year.

That's pretty much it..
Anyone else's predictions not work out?

Kate Nash
Feist
Beirut
The Chemical Brothers
Weezer

I was expecting them all there, so far Kate Nash is the only one that has actually been added, unfortunatly the worst of the 5

I really thought PJ Harvey would play.
And Goldfrapp.
And Feist.
And Serj Tankian.

Goldfrapp
Band of Horses (seriously where the HELL are they?!)
Sea Wolf
Chemical Brothers or Prodigy (I can't believe they didn't get ONE of these 2)
Feist
And honestly, I'm shocked they didn't get Radiohead. I knew by the time of the poster obviously that they had been discounted. But leaving Coachella last year and knowing a new Radiohead CD was in the works, I would have bet the farm on them being back this year. And I'd no longer have a farm.

Yeah, how can Hootie and the Blowfish command such a fee? When was the last time anyone listened to them? They are a county fair band now.

And what group of 18-22 year olds would be interested in attending a Bill Cosby show/rant for 100k??

Thanks for posting that, Boourns.

Fucking Okkervil River, how could they not add them? They had one of the most hyped albums last year and a new one came out also. Bullshit.

Oh and Muse also.

I am still waiting for Madness to reply back to me...

Sweet. So it looks like I can book Gogol for only 20 grand. I am so saving up my money so I can get a Gogol performance in my backyard.
