YOU ALREADY GOT THE KILLERS SALAH IT'S TIME FOR ME TO GET WHAT I WANT.

Edit: I've emailed Pitchfork, Stereogum, the usual suspects. Hopefully this will either lead to confirmation that this is bullshit, or.... not. :D :D :D

I really hope this is true, her last Coachella performance was not that good, but the other times I saw her were amazing!

Her Coachella performance was a hot mess, complete disaster. Not denying that at all. Which is why I think they should give her another shot! She's better than Winehouse by miles and miles.

She's suffered a bit of the backlash that comes with any indie/underground artist becoming more popular, and I've found she's not an artist that many people are neutral or indifferent toward. You either love her as I do, or you can't stand her as many others do. Trying to convince someone who gets a headache from her music, ehh, not worth it. :P

I agree and I'm not even a fan.

I think she'd definitely help sell tickets, though. It's been a couple years since she did a headlining show in LA, yes? And almost a year since she got knocked up and stopped touring.

November 2007.

Off the top of my head I could name around ten people who would buy tickets just to see her.

How fantastic would it be that she's merely performing with Buraka Som Sistema and not doing a set of her own??

Everyone getting all excited/disappointed for no reason at all.

Please let this happen.

I truly believe GV is attempting to make Saturday the worst day in Coachella history just so knock down peoples expectations of the festival in the future.

And I think it is working.

Everyone needs to stop complaining. She'll put on a better show than Amy Winehouse, and that's all that really matters.

I agree this sounds unlikely.

Pretty sure it was, I had tickets, but sold them for face on CL.

Thievery Corp is definitely a sub headliner at this point, how could u say they aren't? Coachella vets, 7 LPs now.... awesome 10+ person live ensembles and guest vocalists...

Hate to say it but I think this is it. We've had two rounds of adds and have a 'final' version of the poster. I'd like to see more adds, it's probably just way less likely now...

What in the bloody hell has she done in one year to earn this spot? Have that song being played in "Pineapple Express"??

paper planes is way overplayed, and it's not at all her best work. it's just a catchy single. the rest of her material is brilliant, propulsive, sorta weird dance music... and a lot of people like it, as last year's sahara overflow will attest

seriously. I don't know why people are wigging out. I mean just look at the last round of additions. 5 out of 6 went to Sunday which outside of the Sahara was already packed and 1 went to Saturday.

Oscar nomination? She also earned mad trainwreck cred last year, and GV seem hell-bent on having a trainwreck headline Saturday.

Either way I missed it last year (fortunately?) and don't give a fuck about Winehouse, so this is a mild +.

Optimistic
03-20-2009, 02:41 PM
Ok yes huge improvement over Winehouse for sure, but I have to wonder what has she done in the past 12 months to bump her from 9th Saturday to 2nd on Saturday? Play a horrendous Sahara set? Get knocked up? Get her song in a stoner movie trailer and in the Best Picture of the Year? Come on. Put her on Friday or Sunday and she's 5th at best. She really doesn't deserve the #2 spot imo.

Dogvolta
03-23-2009, 07:35 AM
People people people. Her song was in the PREVIEW of pineapple express. And that did not happen between last coachella and now, it happened BEFORE last coachella.
And then her show sucked.
