It's not too out of the question. Maybe they'll plan it so they hit up LA before Coachella or something.

Yes. He is.
However, I strongly believe Brann Dalior is better.

with all the bands that are not on the line up so far, i was most surprised to see that The Mars Volta are not on the line up. But I am guessing they are saving them for a late addition

Thats what im hoping and as far as 'rock bands' being added next week....would make sense concidering they are announcing their spring tour around the same time...

they were better in '03 and '04 as a live band. they've gone way downhill since 2005.

GnarVee
02-03-2008, 04:20 PM
I thought they'll KILLED IT in 05...after AMPUTECHTURE it went down hill......but.....they got TP so theyre back in the game...with a new kickass album....I have yet to see any of Bedlam with exception to Goliath aka Rapid Fire Tollbooth.

actually, on deloused through amputechture they had a drummer named jon theadore. He was a maniac, but their current drummer and theadore were totally different styles. Theadore apparently left to work on some solo stuff for zach de la rocha. I dont understand that move, but still... he's an amazing drummer.

It seems Jon Theodore was kicked out of TMV by Omar and Cedric. He wanted to chill/party/surf after and in between shows and they wanted to constantly work.

He was the most amazing drummer I've ever seen live.

Blake I think was next and that's the last time I saw them - he was terrible and it made the show kind of suck.

Thomas's playing is less dynamic than Jon but technically sound. He sounds good on the new cd - I'd love them as an add.

The Mars Volta put on a fucking amazingly incredibly awesome show at the Santa Barbara Bowl on October 14th, 2005. It was there last show of that tour and it was an evening with Mars Volta, no openers, almost 3 hours of music. simply brilliant.

and John Theodore left the band because he had a baby on the way

their current drummer has talent, lots of it, obviously, but no one beats John Theodore, he was perfect for TMV

My girlfriend, Lady Danger, loves TMV. She made me take her ass to Kansas City last month to see them and even though I'm not THAT big of a fan their live show kicked my skull in and then poured acid in my asshole it was so awesome. That being said, if you're going to see them, pack an extra face.

if GV was smart at all they wouldnt do that because there would be a mass murder of college frat bros and ho's by tmv fans... lol.

so I did a little research this morning. on ticketmaster their last scheduled date is on 4/21, on my first post in this thread you will see see the last of cities. the only ones they have yet to announce are LA , SF , and WASHINGTON.

I get the suspicious feeling they arre holding out on the festival adds i.e Coachella (la) , Sasquatch (wa) , and Outlands(SF)....I can only hope.

I think I've said this before but I would so confused if they didn't end up playing. It just doesn't make sense for them not to play.

Does TMV playing sasquatch make them more or less likely to play coachella? cause they're playing sasquatch

I would have such difficulty not having to go over and assault someone enjoying a Mars Volta set. Just anyone, picked randomly--but somebody would have to suffer if they play Coach again.

I can think of few forms of torture worse than if GV put TMV on the main stage before Waters. Talk about killing a great vibe.

rage patton
03-08-2008, 11:31 PM
That actually looks like a pretty good line up.

Thank god Fatboy Slim is playing the day AFTER Coachella. I swear, if he cancelled because he couldn't make it back from Brazil on time... Id be pissed.

jalisco is a state in mexico so its not that far. Really any of those bands could feasibly be added to Coachella.

For some reason I thought I read Brazil on the poster. Whoops. With that being said then... I could see the Mars Volta being added to Sunday at Coachella. Not Friday though.

I love that you never give up on adds, rage. But I do agree on this one that it's possible TMV could be added to Coachella. I just hope to God it doesn't happen.

I am with Rage and Obama, hope is not a bad thing. It is possible, especially since Fatboy is playing the same festival.
