from Amanda Palmer`s myspace blog:

"shall try to blog before coachella but might not be able to.
so a few quick things....
if you are coming to the coachella festival (the cure! ahhgg!!! depeche mode! leonard cohen! paul mccartney! AFP!) , you might want to read this thread about a small revolutionary coup we may be leading. bring nipple tassles? we're trying.
if you aren't coming to coachella because the tickets are so effing expensive, you should follow me on twitter starting NOW because I'm about to give away a pair a day for the next three days (starting today). http://twitter.com/amandapalmer"

Methinks it is more likely that she's ignorant about who is actually on the schedule.

Considering she's all things Moz, I'm surprised she didn't say Morrissey. She might've just got her wires crossed. But. If it were true, that would fuck everything up, because that would just cancel even more bands I want to see this year but can't due to all of these ass-to-ass conflicts. I doubt there's anything I'd miss Depeche Mode for, with exception to Cohen.

If this is true I will be very happy but I just can't see it. Any room on the set times for them? I don't see any room except after The Cure but Roger Waters was 8:30 to 11:00 last year so I doubt this is likely.

um yeah you can, right after the killers

If you push MIA and Thievery down a touch. Killers would have to get an hour (equiv to Morrissey) and be offstage by 10:15. DM 10:45 to 12:30. I suppose it's possible.

milos57
04-14-2009, 04:07 PM
Yeah, if this is true, there's room for them on the Coachella Stage. MIA finishes at 9:45, Killers go on at 10:25. That leaves a pretty big gap of 40 minutes. The Killers could start at 10:15 or maybe even 10:00, play for an hour, and leave 11:00 onward wide open for Depeche Mode, just like Prince last year.

Friday and Sunday are going to be AMAZING, but Saturday is definitely several steps weaker. If Depeche Mode came, I would cry.

So...she has some kind of parade idea for Coachella.

http://www.theshadowbox.net/forum/index.php?topic=7384.0

ok, we're totally going to do this shit.
i'm going to get some people on the ground to help organize it so let's keep the whole discussion here ....
i have no idea what i want to have happen, might depend on the number of people involved....

and we might have TWO or THREE and be like a free-floating parade MACHINE....maybe one parade friday to promote the show,
one parade earlier on saturday and one parade without me, leading to the show itself and dragging drugged, malleable people on drugs along with it.
like an ocean trawler.

so follow the discussion here.

add ideas. i'd like the theme to somehow be creative and yet naked, but i'm not sure how to reconcile that idea with not being fucking boy-painted hippies that just escaped from burning man.

steven (who sadly wont be there) suggest animal heads. i like this.

we could do weird body writing, instead of painting. words only.

milos57
04-14-2009, 04:32 PM
Y'know, there are some things that indicate this may be true. First, Depeche Mode is going to be in Los Angeles on April 23rd for a TV gig, and second, there have been a lot of articles lately with Brandon Flowers and Dave Gahan jointly interviewed. The latter may seem like a stretch, but it's interesting timing...

Diablo Cody was just mentioning how calling people trannies is the new fat...

instead of "fat mess" (omg so 90's, ugh) its now "tranny mess" (how ironic!)

I hate to be a downer but maybe Amanda Palmer just made a mistake.

Or maybe Dave Gahan is going to be a special guest with the Killers and she just wrote Depeche Mode so the average person would know who it was.

The set times are up. No more additions.

Anyone who thinks otherwise should go die in a fire.

Set times have been up and the issues are this...

Sat night theres a larger than normal gap between MIA and the Killers. Bump the KIllers down a lil bit and it makes room for one last performance around 11

and then sunday the Cure starts at 9:25, they pla an hour an hour and a half and theres still room for someone.

just sayin..... Im happy as can be all ready.

40 minutes isn't a larger than normal gap between MIA and the Killers.
The Killers have a large stage show. Their roadcrew has a lot of time to set up equipment. Even Jack Johnson's crew had 35 minutes last year.

As been stated many times previously, the Cure plays long sets. They played almost 2 hours at Coachella in 2004. It's what their fans expect, and it would be a ridiculous move for them to be given a one hour set so a surprise headliner could also be forced to have an hour long set.

I love Amanda Palmer, but she's probably just mistaken about whose on the set list. I'm afraid you'll get the Killers and like it.

how could there be room after the sunday headliner? the cure are closing the night...like it or not.

if anything, they'd probably do a suprise show in the tents.

the cure don't ever play for an hour and a half.

they wouldn't agree to play/headline a festival if thats their time slot and to have it shortened by adding a suprise guest after them.
