I saw Hercules and Love Affair at Detour and they were amaazing. The sound system broke mid performance, though, which sucked. I can't wait to see them in a better place. WHAT BETTER PLACE THAN COACHELLA???

Ah, I'm so excited!

That's Antony...he's got his own project there which is Antony and the Johnsons. He'll more than likely get onstage for Hercules at some point. I'm definitely stoked.

Hercules and Love Affair have a great live act. I'm about to see Antony in sf for NoisePop so I'll reserve my judgement until then. I can only see them playing together at Coachella and that would be great considering he never tours with them.

Can't really get into Antony, although I feel I should be. Gave his last album a handful of spins and have heard a bit of the new one. Prolly didnt help that I tried while vacationing in Hawaii (questionable whether he could mesh well with that tropical environment).

if i had an electric collar that prevented me from leaving the do lab it would still be the best weekend of the year

but by all means let us know how the removal of a band who i guarantee will be through your city in the next year has completely and utterly ruined your day, that day of coachella, the entire coachella festival, music in general, and set back universal healthcare in america by another 10 years

Nope.

Ill break it down based on dance acts...


Crookers - may be the best thing to happen in Sat dance

Drop The Lime - s'alright

Gang Gang Dance - album has its moments.

Glass Candy - fun but unproven commodity dancewise

Junior Boys - great but mad chill

MSTRKRFT - are alright, but a but generic. New record is crappy

Surkin. Para One (Live) - rule, but are a carryover from 08

The Bloody Beetroots - killin

The Chemical Brothers (DJ Set) - a phone in from an act that hasnt been all that "fresh" in a long time. As the crowning dance act on Sat no less.

TRV$DJ-AM - lolwut?

Zane Lowe - unremarkable




Maybe Im just spoiled by living out here but thats the lineup of an event that , if it were just dance, I wouldnt lose sleep if I missed it.

I feel you I just think sunday has so much more to offer in this department. I'm looking forward to the DOME more than the Sahara on Saturday. I mean of course I will check out the Chems but I've seen them do a DJ set and it just left me wanting a real brothers' set really badly. Saturday still has a bunch of quality acts, just few that I haven't seen before. Sunday is more nuts though with the Orb LIVE, Etienne De Crecy, Groove Armada, Plump DJ's etc...and that's just the electronic side of things.

Don't forget about Bob Mould.

Actually ...saw Bob earlier this week in Mpls. Great show but he ended up in the ER afterwards ...sounds like he's doing OK. Hear it from Bob here in an interview: http://minnesota.publicradio.org/display/web/2009/03/31/bob_mould/ (Note: His voice sounded MUCH better at the show, which was on 30th anniversary of first Husker Du show.)

Back to the topic of this thread ...SHIT. I really wanted to see Hercules. Actually I really want to see anything with Antony. So - Antony & the Johnsons are still on for Sunday, but now there's chatter that Matthew Herbert is joining Antony on Sunday (discussed in another thread but source = http://pitchfork.com/news/34889-antony-plans-symphony-shows-single/) so this may not be a "typical" Antony show - if there ever was such a thing.

It's going to be interesting. No Hercules is :(

Exactly. After a run of 6 amazing years in a row, I skipped last year to do some other things. Now coming back it feels like many things about this year have been strange. Can't quite place it, but it does feel off.

I'm happy for people that are into the Saturday line-up, but for me personally it just feels like a been there/done that day.

I guess on the brightside (no Killers pun intended at all) having no must sees gives me the freedom to roam. Hopefully it'll be a blessing in disguise and allow me to experience parts of the fest that I might have missed otherwise by being tied to a schedule.

the steven segal/dmx movie is amazing

True. But that steven segal/ja rule movie needs to be avoided at all costs.

DJ Set at Ultra. You didn't miss a thing. Their whole tour is Andy Butler DJing, not the full band/live show. Maybe that's why they dropped.

I demand satisfaction. Can someone tell us if the full band/live show of Hercules & Love Affair was EVER actually scheduled?

No of course not. As a matter of fact, none of the acts on the poster have been officially scheduled. What the fuck are you talking about?

If it was going to be a DJ set anyway, I'm indifferent.

Wow.. 2 drops this year, big fucking deal.

I'm sure it will be pretty easy to catch Hercules and the Love Affair soon enough at a small venue near you. I wasn't exactly geeking out over the prospect of seeing them at Coachella to begin with, so this loss means nothing to me. Saturday looks fine..

Okay, this officially blows. Have they made any sort of announcement? Kinda sneaky of GV to remove them from the poster and not make a peep about it.

The line-up is always subject top change, as PF pointed out in another thread. GV doesn't usually make an announcement, although they did when Amy Winehouse dropped - maybe because it was widely reported in the press. Or maybe because GV was ticked - leaving her on the poster with a line through her name was kinda funny.

Go here (http://www.coachella.com/forum/showthread.php?t=26234) for all kinds of poster changes.

Or because she was a MAJOR act and they acknowledge that Saturday looked like shit without her. The line thing was to assure us there'd be a replacement.

Hate to tell you but Saturday looked pretty much the same with or without her. Paul Tollett himself said they knew booking her was a risk. Everybody knew there was a good chance she'd cancel and even if she didn't, the set would probably be a wreck. It's just the reputation she's developed.

Hi, dumdum. It was mentioned (within reasonably close proximity to my post that you got upset about) that the recent Hercules & Love Affair live shows had really just been DJ sets but under the H&LA name. So my completely reasonable question was, just because it said "Hercules & Love Affair" on the poster, does that mean the intention was for a live band performance or one of the DJ sets that has recently been performed under the same name.

There are plenty of dopes on here for you to berate. I, however, am clearly not one of them.

BTW dont get me wrong Trick.
Youre psyched for Sat and thats cool, but this year's been an odd one w/r/t adds and drops.


Okay, this officially blows. Have they made any sort of announcement? Kinda sneaky of GV to remove them from the poster and not make a peep about it.

You guys must not have been around these parts last year, monitoring the poster and what not. There were, what, like 7 drops from the lineup? And they were a hell of a lot more rare than H&LA. We lost Madness, The Streets, The Bees, and a few more. This year, we've lost two - and one of them I'm pretty sure most everyone on the boards didn't had a big problem with leaving the lineup.




Hate to tell you but Saturday looked pretty much the same with or without her. Paul Tollett himself said they knew booking her was a risk. Everybody knew there was a good chance she'd cancel and even if she didn't, the set would probably be a wreck. It's just the reputation she's developed.

I don't think that was psycho's point. He was saying that because Amy was such a big name on the poster, GV kinda had to make a statement. When she said "the lineup looked shit without her on it", I think He meant that Saturday looked less stacked/loaded number wise than the other days - which is fact. Whether you liked her leaving or not was the opinion.

Trick, I don't hate drum machines, but I am more of a rock fan in general, and Saturday has just about nothing for us.

I'm personally more interested in the electronic acts on Sunday (Orb, groove armada), but will probably be missing them for MBV/YYYs/Cure/Throbbing Gristle.

Saturday WILL still be fun (its fucking COACHELLA after all), but the rock lineup is pretty disappointing.

Why are we posting this in the H&LA / A&TJ thread? makes it seem like both acts were dropped.

Oh well, the other day I actually forgot they were even going to be there. Like people have said, less conflicts.

I feel for everyone that really wanted to see them, but if it truly was just a DJ set, then nothing to be missed.

This was my favorite and it's sooooo true:
