You do realize that 90% of the "complicated" setups you prefer are just for show, right? Right? What's the point of having 1000 buttons to push if you only use a very small number of them? Get your head out of your ass.

These guys are an absolute must for the sahara tent this year. Goldenvoice has been so good at being ahead of the curve on the music front.

I saw these guys at Avalon in Feb last year and they killed it. It went crazy when they mixed in Radiohead's Reckoner (one of my favorite remixes in a long time). They would be absolutely perfect for a late afternoon slot in the Saraha. Don't miss it if they are there!

In their essential mix they talk about how they like to be up close with their audience, and so far they've only played in smallish venues, right? I wonder if that had something to do with them not being at Coachella (or maybe there wasn't an offer). Hmmm....bring them to me somehow, GV.

You better go tomorrow, hope its not sold out.

the tix on the site are no longer available, possibly because today is the day. they may have some at the door. I doubt it's sold out, bigger names have been to this venue without selling out.

Easy, went to eat afterwards, that took a while. Had to take Thomthom home, and then I took a short nap so I would be awake enough to drive home in a straight line.

I do. They have a style all of their own and play a type of music that appeals to much bigger fan base than most artists....I went to the SF show with three friends who had never been to a club/dj show before and they absolutely loved The Twelves bc they play songs they know but with their own dance style. I see them having a year like Aeroplane last year where they play a lot of big festivals in the US and Europe, do a bunch of approved studio remixes, and get a afternoon/sunset slot at Coachella

Yeaaahhh sounds great. I've been in love with these guys since I got a hold of their Essential Mix. I agree with what you say about their music appealing to a bigger fan base, but still keeping good song selection.

Man, what a fantastic show last night. After hearing the essential mix i thought it was going to be similar to that, but FUCK did they bring the nastiness. What a great all around dance party. Their mixes along with the flair they put on top of the tunes is top notch.

Prediction: They will definitely blow up and I couldn't be more excited for this.

I've been following The Twelves for awhile now. Saw them three times last year. They were planning on releasing an EP last Fall, and had announced it on their myspace, but it got pushed to 2010, and they removed the announcement.

Keep an eye out here: http://www.eyeindustries.com/blog/

If and when the EP is officially announced it will happen there. Also, you can get some Limited Edition (and ridiculously over priced) Twelves shirts there.

Coachella would be foolish not to book these two for next year. I could see them closing out the tent a la 2ManyDJs.

Seems like a fun night out and all

Pretty much sums it up for me. Seeing them at Voyeur in SD was fun but the 2nd time around in Albuquerque wasn't the same. Maybe it was the venue, maybe it was the sound (Voyeur has a huge screen that takes up the entire wall behind the djs of LED lights synced to the music and a pretty thumping soundsystem) but I experienced some pretty boring moments this last time around. Maybe the disco house vibe isn't my thing. Don't get me wrong, I still danced my ass off when some of my favorites of theirs dropped (Metric's Help I'm Alive, Radiohead's Reckoner, MIA's Jimmy, and Fever Ray's Seven) but there was about half the set that I didn't really care for including the 5 Daft Punk drops.

Perhaps a 50 minute set at Coachella would be good as it would force them to cut their set down by a substantial amount probably resulting in a more consistent track selection. /ofthetwelvesrant

These guys are getting overhyped on the board and I confess to being part of the problem. They are solid DJs, but nothing mindblowing. The show I saw was special because we get very few EDM shows in Tucson and the crowd was going off. I'm curious to hear reviews of the upcoming HARD performance.

Pete Tong called them Brazil's answer to Daft Punk on their essential mix. This is incorrect. They are more accurately described as Brazil's version of 2ManyDJs.
