Their live performances almost always leave audiences polarized, and have been referred to by Karen O of Yeah Yeah Yeahs in NME as bordering on a religious experience.

Pretty much.

What's confusing is that besides Deerhunter, there is another band called the Dear Hunter.

Saw them open for NIN at The Forum in '08. Had no idea who they were and I loved them. Can't wait to see them this year. Sunday is definitely a problem. Deerhunter, Gary Numan, Thom Yorke, Gorillaz, etc.

Well I wasn't very familiar with either band's catalogue at the time but I found the vocals to be quite annoying. I like deerhunter much more, and have yet to see them live.

Deerhunter are fantastic live. The past few shows I've seen, they've leaned more towards a loose, spontaneous sound. The Microcastle tour was the best I've caught them: they were intense, really loud, super tight and just fantastic.

It used to be an experience watching them prior to Microcastle. They were bizarre, and really goddamn good, but very bizarre.

guedita
01-24-2010, 12:03 PM
Yeah, Bradford doesn't do the whole wearing dresses thing anymore. I read an interview where he was talking about how it was a part of his own insecurities and that he's matured past that...something along that line. I am looking forward to the spontaneity, there is just something about the way this band jams that really gets to me (in a good way).

I do miss the days of Bradford not playing guitar, I wish I could have seen them in the Crypto/Fluorescent era. Too late for the party, I suppose. Not that I don't love their live shows now, but it does seem like a certain level of mystique and excitement is no longer present in their shows that once was.

They're almost certain to conflict with someone on Sunday. Already saw them open for NIN in 08, so they're not that that high on the list. And I'd rather check them out at a solo headlining show of theirs anyway.

I have a feeling these guys might have the Liars 09 slot. Remember when everyone thought they would be late at night, and they ended up early in the day on the Outdoor? Yup.

At least, I hope it works out that way. I saw them last year and they were fantastic.

I am very appreciative to this board for turning me onto Deerhunter. They are a must-see for me (hoping for no major conflicts).

bmack86

I could see that. Deerhunter will bring it whenever they play. They killed at Pitchfork in 07, and they were the first band on that day.

Liars or No Age slot would be ideal. I really want to see them and if they play at night there's zero chance of that happening.

rage patton
03-14-2010, 08:16 PM
They are billed to high to play in the No Age slot. If they play early in the day, they will be on the outdoor.

Also, the video on the first page just reminded me of how fantastic of a song "Nothing Ever Happened" really is. The jam at the end is unreal.

03-14-2010, 09:26 PM
Deerhunter is billed higher than liars was though..
I just hope I somehow get to see them in the evening at Coachella.
Although.. I am going to be seeing them here soon!! So if I miss em at Coachella, that'd suck, but oh well..

rage patton
03-14-2010, 09:31 PM
Why do you want them in the evening? So you can not see them? I just have a feeling Goldenvoice will be putting them on the Outdoor during the day

seeing Deerhunter during the day > not seeing Deerhunter playing at night

clumsy342

Deerhunter are so good live! I hope I'll have the chance on Sunday but they may have to be sacrificed only because I've seen them a few times before. Their live show is a great translation of their records.


These guys really suck.

Let me guess you think MGMT is way better? How wrong you are.

After reading through this I think I'm hoping for earlier slot on the Outdoor too. Being on Sunday gives me zero chances of seeing them if they're on at night and even though I've seen them a few times, I do not want to miss them, especially at Coachella. They fucking jam.

amyzzz
03-15-2010, 09:37 AM
I hope they're early. Otherwise, I will surely miss them. I might even miss them if they're early the way things stand now (like if they conflict with Charlotte or Phoenix).

Deerhunter before Charlotte Gainsbourg on outdoor, then bathroom and early dinner break before AFP->Pavement->Gorillaz on the main for the win.

Bummed that they're playing outdoors so early. But I'm still looking forward to seeing what that's like. I've heard they can really slay when they play out in the sunlight from multiple people anyway.

Definitely checking out their Wednesday night Glass House gig, though! Will be great to warm up for the weekend!
