First of all, there's no ditching of THEM because i'm not part of their group in any way, shape or form. They'll do their own thing, I want no part of it.

Second of all, i'm not ditching you guys!! I just don't think i'll be able to camp with the group side by side. No biggie. We're still gunna hang

Yes. I think they have done a duet before as well.

What does everyone think of Bowie and Trent doing Reptile? I was never a big fan of that duet. I love 'I'm afraid of americans' though i'm not sure they ever performed it live together.

They're not. My mom has no idea what the fuck she's getting herself into. She gets mad at me when I smoke weed. Weed is the default at Bonnaroo, almost everyone does that. I'm actually having fun picturing all the people offering her acid. Maybe she'll trip for Bruce. My sisters are annoying as fuck. Dude, ITS MY FAMILY. barfaroo


He's just saying this now because he found out Feather is coming to Roo. :)

Oh quiet you. Shes the cherry and hot fudge and marshmallow cream on top of it all.

And seriously, if I wasnt going with a group I wouldnt think twice about camping with you guys. But my friends are professional lollygaggers, getting them all together and o nthe same page can be tough.

HAH not only that.....but I GET TO SEE SALAH the Wednesday before Coachella, before any of you do. So suck on that for awhile.

Really???? For some reason I thought I wasnt gunna see you until thursday at Coachella because of school or some other obligation. Yeyyyy!!!!

TommyboyUNM
02-22-2009, 09:53 AM
Oh and, by my count, we will need to rent four cars. I'm renting one, Blinken already rented one, someone in Paul and Josh's group (probably Jenny) should rent one, and either Sin or Chiapet should rent one I believe. That should cover it. Based on the head count, I'll know if we need anymore cars.

What kind of info do we have on the walmart parking lot? Does it get full and fucking impossible to drive through and stuff? Is this the definite meeting point or should we consider a rest stop or some other landmark? Me, Sin and Hobbit will be getting in late on the 10th.

Ron says the Wal-Mart lot is huge is we shouldn't have a problem getting spaces next to each other. I think we should still shoot for that, unless you wanna sleep at some random rest stop. And most of us are getting into Nashville between 8:00 and 9:00-ish. We've already booked our flights for the same times, now it's about renting cars.

Gotcha, lets keep the walmart plan then, I think rest stops have way less parking and will have lots more people too. Is the plan to get cars and head to the walmart and then meet or all meet at the airport and follow to the walmart parking lot as to stay next to eachother?

I've plotted "car assignments" just to get organized. You can ride with whomever you want, but this is just for the sake of organization. It might look something like this (I don't know who wants to be called by their real name and who doesn't. Hah):

Car 1: (Blinken, Blinken's friend, Pretty Ragdoll, one open spot)

Car 2: (Tommy, Feather, Barbara, Sushy)

Car 3: (Sin, Faxy, Chiapet, Joel)

Car 4: (Jenny, Paul, Josh, Becky)

I would not mind camping with all of you guys (in fact, I would prefer it), but I'll check with my group and get back.

We are taking two cars from AZ, and there are 7 of us. Put us down for the night before at Walmart though, that sounds like a good night before waking up at 5 o clock to spend 6 hours in line.

Sounds good, Gonsh. I think Dylan has a big crew of people going with him, but is planning on meeting at the Walmart. We could have as many as 9 cars caravanning to the Roo from Walmart. You all think we can do it? :)

My buddy Del (fellow first time Rooer) and I met up w/ AJ/PC-2violence last night for the Rapture show. On the way home, he said he was absolutely DETERMINED to make a teepee for his tent at the Roo. He's a crafty sunnovagun, it should be interesting to see how it turns out.

So basically we need to stock up for the weekend before we drive in? Since I am getting in a little after nine I better run to the liquor store.


Feath, we can look up the closest liquor store to the airport. We'll have to get in our car and go straight to the store, but it will be done.

sin, you can fly with any amount you want, domestically, in your checked bag. But, 1) I can't imagine I'm going to have space in my bags, 2) I was assuming other people would want beer (which I could do without).

And yes, feather, beer is bought at groceries, wine or liquor has to be purchased from the state store. We're talking about being on the road at 6AM on Thursday morning. Alcohol sales are between 9AM-11PM or something like that (though the state stores seem to close earlier).

There were several liquor stores within a few miles of the airport, so I thought (if I get in earlier) I'd go to one of those and then hit a grocery to get beer for anyone who wanted it.

AFAIK I'm not planning heavy drinking, but I think I'd like to have the makings for bloody marys in the morning, some capt'n, and some cider or beer. I mean, I guess I could fly with the liquor but I figured some other people would want stuff too. :)

Are glass containers allowed into the campgrounds?

Okay ice cold beer is definitely my number one, and I wouldn't mind sipping on some liquor (Jager) once in awhile (& at the Walmart)...ofcourse nothing over the top, with that weather it hits right away. At Coachella I usually take it pretty easy too.

Bloody Marys are my fav chia!!! I just don't see how we could successfully keep the tomato juice cold enough...but if you are down I will bring some of the ingredients needed.

Well, stuff in the trunk seems to not to get too hot (even at Coachella), and I was thinking that at Walmart I could pick up a big plastic pitcher -- for mixing ingredients and also could shake/stir with ice and then strain into cups. I have done this at tailgating parties in 90F heat, so I'm not too worried about it. :)

I'm not sure I'd say mine are "perfect" (I used to live with a bartender whose bloodies were better than mine -- but that's where I learned :) ). I make mine very spicy -- start with Mrs. T's spicy mix, add worcestershire sauce, tabasco, celery salt, ground pepper, dash of cayenne, horseradish, lime juice, and a little bit of brine from the olive jar. But I will probably leave out a couple of ingredients for coachella.

I love tomato juice (and bloody mary pre-mix even more), but for me it's just as much about the spice and saltiness. I love hot (pepper type hot), salt, vinegary/sour. Mmm.

It's about proportion. I'd estimate one shake of worcestershire sauce and 2-3 of tabasco. Just a dash of juice from the olive jar (it's just vinegar brine, so it's for saltiness). Horseradish, I leave out often because I can't always find the right kind, but it's just a small amount.

It tastes a lot better than it sounds though. I know some of it sounds weird, and before I knew how to make them I wondered why mine never tasted as good as the bar's.

Paul doesn't listen to them, but I LOVE them. They are far better live than on album. Their album doesn't do their live show justice. Also, when I saw them in November, they played 4 new songs and they absolutely blew my mind.

Their Lolla webcast is what got me into them. I tuned in just as they started... and I could not believe what I heard. I was blown away.

My fiancee also thought the album was OK before the show... but now she loves them. Just as much as me perhaps.

I dont want to raise your expectations to an unrealistically high level, but they really are fantastic live. Just don't expect to hear the album repeated note-for-note live. They sound almost completely different. But in the best way possible.

Also, for those that've camped, how much space do you get to set up? Is there enough room for two 2-person tents? Possibly 3? If we end up with 6 people in one car is there going to be enough space for us?

chiapet
02-23-2009, 09:35 AM
The FAQ said that space is allocated by carload not person -- approx 10' times the width of your car. So I would think that would be plenty for two 2-person tents, but is probably going to be a tight fit for 6 people plus gear.

Let me put it this way -- at Coachella, you get 8'x8' per person, and everyone feels like that is really small. (So 48'x8' for 6 people). At Bonnaroo you will probably have about 10'x6' for 6 people.

I'm assuming they are somewhat strict with the space, especially earlier / the closer you are since they would be piling cars in next to each other. So it may not be wise to cram a ton of people into a vehicle. :)

Don't wait till the damage is done girl. I am barely going to be 36 (yes i know in your eyes that is old) and I have damage to one ear drum already. And I never went to very many shows. Now whenever there is too much bass or it is just too loud one ear sounds like a radio station that is just slightly off. I get like a static sound in that one ear. It can make a good show less fun, it even bothers me at the club at times if I get too close to the speakers. If you plan on having a long life of going to shows take the precautions now.

That's good to know, Marco! Sacrifice Throbbing Gristle for actual music. I think I'll get my TG fix before I leave for Coachella by asking my 2-year old nieces to hit some buckets with spoons and scream.

i think i save my hearing because of the locations i choose to listen from.

i try to not line myself up with a stack and certainly don't hug the rail right next to a stack.

plus, i stay a bit back to get in that sweet spot for the sound...so that helps too...


Ok..... to each their own.

i'm almost 30 and i've been going to a show a week for the last 3 years...and at least a show a month for last 10 years and i still have super hearing. and i've never used earplugs...

I'm a few years older than you and have some hearing loss in one ear, but this is after 600+ shows and countless raves, and listening to headphones too loud, etc. Even though it took a lot of abuse to get to this point, it sucks. It's something that isn't noticeable until I'm somewhere with a lot of ambient noise or a lot of people talking -- for example, in bars I have a lot of trouble hearing people unless they sit on my "good side." :)

I did not wear earplugs much, up until about 4 years ago. I think some of the things you mentioned are important though -- bass heavy shows, being inline with a stack and close to stage. I always used to be near the front of the crowd (I am short, dammit, and want to see), even if that meant being near (but not in front of) a speaker. I also for some reason always favored standing to the left, and of course that is the ear that is wonky.

What is weird is that I didn't notice it as it was happening, gradually over the years. It was only noticeable once I'd done quite a bit of damage. I guess what I'm saying is, you should always be wearing earplugs.


And I would not even consider listening to MBV w/o. The entire show is loud and it peeks at almost 130db, which is the threshold for causing physical pain. At ATP NY, I was as far back in the venue as you could be. My body was vibrating as the floor was shaking with each riff. During the noise "holocaust", it felt as if there was a plane taking off inside the room in terms of noise and sound intensity and vibrations. There were people who apparently did not pick up earplugs that were running out of the room at that point, crying and holding their ears. My ears were ringing for a few hours, even though I wore earplugs.

TG's assault on my ears makes ME sad. I'm trying to be as nice as possible when talking about them, but this is a message board so fuck it. They may be good performance art, unique, influential or whatever. But their music is downright horrible. Obviously this is IMO.

SOMEONE tried to tell me yesterday that NIN wouldn't be around if it wasn't for Throbbing Gristle. Whatever, that's fine. But that doesn't mean TG's music is worth a shit. So NIN took some elements of what TG was doing and made it listenable.

Nothing sounded like that and NO ONE was doing what they were doing back then. Music taste is like taste in anything, either you like it or you don't. I like fairly odd things.

Well, it's one thing to recognize/respect them and another to want to listen. I get that. There are a number of influential artists that I don't care for, while liking work that was derived from what they started.

I do happen to like Throbbing Gristle, though I like many of the bands that *followed* them and borrowed lightly from them, more than TG.

Tommy, I think the problem is that they are very difficult to describe. There is not an extremely consistent sound from album to album. I do not believe their set will sound like any of their albums either. As I mentioned, I saw them in 2007, and it was completely unlike any of their albums and is not what I'm expecting from Coachella either.

I think the problem might be that you're being told they're Industrial and you're thinking of.... NIN and similar, are not industrial even though that's a term that people usually throw around. If you've heard of Cabaret Voltaire, SPK, Clock DVA, etc, that is closer to what I'd consider directly derivative of TG. Trent definitely references TG but there are a number of intermediate bands that brought industrial-ish music to the place where Trent picked up.

I just don't buy the argument that unique = good. I don't respect them for doing something different if it's not good. I still haven't heard anything description of the music itself. You're right about one thing. Radiohead is the great unifier.

I think the problem is I think it's way too non-linear and I don't like all the screaming. I haven't heard one song with him just singing. That's why I don't really like Animal Collective (aside from MPP) and that's why I think The Mars Volta is a train wreck in concert. It's way too disjointed for me and I just don't understand the appeal. It doesn't resemble music to me. Radiohead uses a lot of different sounds and it doesn't turn into chaos. It's well-layered and filled with harmonies.

We haven't had a spirited Radiohead debate in this thread yet. I wish I didn't have to go back to work and actually work or I'd break that out. I'm just gonna say, Blinken, that sometimes things really are as good as the hype they receive. Radiohead falls into that category for me. Of course this is IMO. I feel like some people don't think that's always implied on a message board.

But yeah, for my money Radiohead is the best band I've ever heard and deserve every ounce of praise it gets.

I like some electronic music. I like it when I can dance to it, not to listen to at home on my headphones (save for Daft Punk). I don't mind instrumental things at all. I like Explosions in the Sky and Pelican. It just has to be linear for me to like it. And if there are vocals, I'd prefer the lead vocalist didn't just scream or yelp into the mic.

Blinken, I totally agree. Watching some YT videos of recent live performances might give you some indication, but I think it's one of those things where, if you have any interest, you should just show up and give it a try, and if it doesn't strike your fancy, move on to something that does.

And Tommy, that's the thing -- a lot of electronic music is not danceable. This is not for the most part. I'm not trying to force you to listen to it or like it. It's just... not your nieces banging pots. :)

Interestingly (or not), thrash is far more tolerable and even enjoyable in some instances, to me now than when it came out.
