Just wanted to see which boarders here are planning on Attending APW.

You need another "No" option. Such as:

"No, it's ridiculously overpriced for what little they have"

or

"No, Lollapalooza will have Radiohead, Underworld and Kings of Leon, will not have Jack Johnson and will cost $100 less"

I guess those are pretty similar. Also kinda similar to "No, lineup is crap."

TeamCoachellaHellYeah
03-24-2008, 02:35 PM
That would be the 4th option also.

Hahahaha well it is still pretty early. APW isn't until August and it has to compete with alot more festivals. I am just waiting for them to add Sigur Ros or MBV to Sunday to make it buy a ticket for Sunday. Yeah, Paul said no adds but you never know with Goldenvoice.

I am going on Friday - but I feel ripped off in a big way.

I made a bad choice in which GV festival to attend. But logistically, it was the better choice at the time.

I'm pretty sure we won't see any adds. Paul T pretty nixed both the Sigur Ros and the MBV rumors this past week. He even pointed out they (MBV) are in Europe that Friday anyways.

i have the hotel booked, just booked a free first class plane ticket, festival tickets are $0, so it will be pretty cheap for me. never been to nyc, have a second child due in mid september. so i am taking advantage of a little "me" time before life gets even more hectic.

would it be bad form then to mention that i will be attending Coachella, Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza and possibly APW this year? nevermind the overwhelming debt i'm racking up. that's what bankruptcy is for.

While I understand why people are disappointed over the relatively small number of bands and absence of big subheadliners compared to the same-priced coachella, it is a festival with half the capacity of coachella and in a ridiculously expensive city. a 60k capacity test would generate enough ticket revenue for "more." if i lived in nyc i would attend the first two days in a heartbeat. But I can't afford it, so I am not going.

capacity I heard was now 40,000.

The bigger problem with this is - the set times - if only one band is playing, then it might be a problem seeing anything after 5pm

I am really really curious about the set times...I mean is everyone going to get a full hour and a half? I was going over some set times and there is sooo much room....even with RH and JJ playing full sets...

not liking radiohead is my choice, which I am entitled to. no reason to attack me and tell me I'm retarded because i think they suck, and as such, IN MY OPINION, that makes the APW line up suck...

It's not an opinion when you're making an incorrect statement.

TeamCoachellaHellYeah
05-28-2008, 01:15 PM
I find it funny when people state that they don't like or hate Radiohead...usually it is people who A. have never really heard anything other then a song or 2. or B. Baiters who just want to say they hate them to be "cool". Back in the day my father detested Pink Floyd because everyone was praising them, much in the same way we do with Radiohead now. And for that he ignored them...almost 25 years later he actually gave them a listen and was floored by them...and he admitted just a few weeks ago why (since we were talking about the Water's show). I think this is the same with the people who state that Radiohead "sucks". Fine, if you have actually listened to a few albums and given them a chance and you still hate them fine...but...I have meet a few of these same people who after seeing them live completely change their tone...and here is a another funny little tid bit...the lead singer (if you can call him that) of Slipknot once stated that he didn't care for Radiohead until the band was traveling Europe and he saw an entire show on TV...he was floored....funny coming from someone who listens to nothing but heavy metal....so...if you hate them or dislike them fine...but until you actually see them live, your opinion won't count...at least with me...no band out right now can match them live...none....maybe Daft Punk but that is because of their show rather then performance....and I'm spent.....

I have listened to radiohead, i have seen them live. being that i used to work for a rather large and well-known concert promoter, i have been exposed to them probably more than most people who say they hate radiohead...i have tried but i simply cannot get into them.

I feel the same way about bjork. I loved the sugarcubes, but her solo stuff does nothing for me. i would go so far as to consider it awful, but many people love her. doesn't make them (or me) wrong

By the same token, I don't decide that some artist is a genius just because Rolling Stone or Spin says they are. All of these things are subjective.

I don't say i don't like these artists because i think it's cool to say i don't like them. i am a music freak. I listen to damn near everything... amoeba and amazon get a good portion of my income. My music collection takes up a good portion of my home and my hard drives. i download TONS of stuff of soulseek...even if i don't initially like something right away, it all gets at least a few listens before it gets sent back for trade or deleted from my hard drive.

there is always going to be some music that i just can't get into. there is always going to be something that some of us don't like. we need to learn to agree to disagree because that is what makes life interesting

I 'm done.
