They are both doing SXSW this year...I would love to see either at Coachella but I don't think it is their style :(

PJ Harvey, unless you're fucking deaf.

Um, I'm not too familiar with PJ Harvey but choosing Tori Amos in any songstress toss-up can never be a bad thing. This is one of those Chocolate Cake vs. Apple Pie things, yeah?

I'd love to see Polly Jean make it to Coachella. She'd be a perfect fit, and I really hoped that this would be her year.

I love Tori, but I think that she'd do better in an indoor environment (theatre, arena, etc.) vs. and outdoor setting like Coachella. I saw Regina Spektor at Coachella a couple of years ago and imagined how Tori would do on stage in mid-afternoon.

I used to love Tori quite a bit. I sort of haven't cared about her music to much for the past 6 years though.

lol...woops, I didn't mean it to be like an either/or thing, I mean, I want them BOTH to play....and if they do, on Saturday ;)

*edit: I changed the title

Agreed. It's pretty much been downhill since '99. What can you do? Sometimes middle-age and motherhood mellows a gal.

pj...

its the only show i've been to where people refused to leave the place after the lights came up, for like over 10 minutes or so, everyone just refused to accept the show was over...i hope to see her name everytime a new lineup comes out & it always saddens a bit when its not

Tori Amos will never play Coachella. The end.

And this is coming from someone who's seen her just under 20 times.

And at this rate it seems like PJ Harvey will never play either.

Tori was damned good in concert at the Hollywood Bowl a couple years ago, although sadly I have to agree with the sentiment that her music does sound like it's on a gentle glide slope to irrelevancy.

one of the major travesties over the years of Coachella is that PJ Harvey has never been on the lineup...maybe she doesn't enjoy outdoor shows, I don't know...

I do know that she is absolutely brilliant live

I hope PJ plays Coachella some year. She is killer live, especially when she gets into some of her older, rawer material.

Every year, I come to the realization that she won't be there, and I say "maybe we'll get her next year."

Maybe we'll get her next year.

PJ all the way. LOVE the Orpheum show for White Chalk "tour", but she's been amazing at every show i've ever seen. I saw pieces of the ceiling falling when she played the Palladium for the Stories Tour, but my fave was the Hollywood Knitting Factory. I still get chills thinking about it.

Tori is still okay, used to like her a lot around Choirgirl Hotel and SLGs but too mellow for me now.

She has done plenty of festivals in Australia and Europe. America in general seems like something she's not too keen on. 2 shows for White Chalk, 2 shows for the upcoming album. And when one doesn't live close to either city, it's kind of sad. Certainly GV has already tried multiple times to bring her in.. right?

OK... that is brilliance... Tori on the outdoor stage at sunset. She'd eat that shit up, talking about the faeries and what-not in the hills...

hehehehe

Love it!

Tho, yeah... it'll never happen.

i didn't interpret the thread title as an either/or,
i saw it as more of a "pj harvey for coachella?" + "tori amos for coachella?" rolled into one.
i would mess myself if these ladies were added.

In your bed? So what..you can gossip about boys?


Tori would be a great fit at coachella you freaks. I saw her a year or two ago, and yes her new music SUCKS, she plays 75% old material at her shows.
