This is 100% pure truth, not gossip. I can't say how I know this, but I guarantee that it is true.

I know for a fact that the annual "secret" show, to take place a few days before Coachella, will be a performance by Rilo Kiley.

Pretty disappointing...I was hoping for the Verve or Portishead (although I guess them playing on another day is still possible).

Just a heads-up for anyone curious.

Not many are going to believe you unless you reveal a source, even though this does sound likely.

Good point, but then again, I don't really care. Just wanted to give a heads-up in case anyone was planning on going and/or is a Rilo Kiley fan.

I can say that I teach about 15 minutes away from the Glasshouse, and I spend lots of time in the area...

Well they will announce it anyway so guess we wait a few weeks when they do. This sucks, guess my only option right now is spiritualized in Santa Barbara for pre festival activity.

A few days for the fest? Maybe it's not a secret show and it's more like how Blonde Redhead played a few days before. And then Crowded House and JAMC shows were added later. God, if Portishead does one, I have to go no matter what. Even if it means missing Friday, which wouldn't be too much of a loss at this point.

I was expecting love & rockets. all the glasshouse 'secret' shows I can remember have been the big reunion acts. that is, 04 was the pixes, 07 had two shows being crowded house and jamc. I don't remember other years. anyone?

No, this woudl be the Thursday show so its not like its happenign waaay before. Bauhaus was 2005 and nobody did one in 2006.

Best one was Pixies doing it, sucks I couldnt go, I did see The Flaming Lips that night so its gravy.


spiritualized in SB sounds awfully tempting now.



Blonde Redhead


THATS NOT ONE!!!! That happend Wednesday the day before JAMC and 2 days before Crowded House did theirs which were billed as ''secret shows''

I think they'll do two shows like last year, one Thursday and one Friday.

So then...
Thursday: Rilo Kiley
Friday: Portishead
Saturday: Love & Rockets

It could happen.

yes lets hope its Portishead because then I could give two shits about going to coachella since they are the reason wanting to go.

I'd skip part of Friday for a Portishead preview...

So all the people obsessed with Jenny Lewis' boobs can get it out of their system before Coachella and be a lot closer at the glass house.

It would be an important public service for the Coachella community.

They would never put a Glasshouse show on Saturday. You havent been paying attention or something? Last year, Thursday and Friday, the years before have just been friday. I think last year ends up being an exception unless they keep doing it this way. So scratch Saturday out of there, and Portishead on Friday woudl be dumb, that would make some peopel going all 3 days have to think about their evening and leave the festival to go to the other show and then come back which would be a b**ch at that hour cause they dont let anyone back into the grounds after the cars have cleared out.

aside from blonde redhead, which supre already slammed, that further supports the pattern, no? all reunion bands? so I'm adament, it will be Love & Rockets this year. if they have two, it might be the Verve thurs and L&R fri.


Best one was Pixies doing it, sucks I couldnt go, I did see The Flaming Lips that night so its gravy.

oh, where was that? I never heard about them playing in the area before Coachella.

Flaming Lips did Jimmy Kimmel, they played like 6 songs instead of like 4 when a band plays indoors. It was crazy cause they had everything that was at Coachella on that tiny stage. There were like 8 furries and the sun people and confetti.

am i just wrong or doesn't LnR, Verve, & Portishead seem too big for the Glass House? and with the exception of Pixies all the other pre-acts have been about the right size...

AAM!!!

I was at that show. What a great place to see a band of that level.

Rilo Kiley? No thanx.
