I'll start it off by saying, missing the Brian Jonestown Massacre set in 09.... just watched "Dig" and now I'm pissed, why was I not aware?

I'm also pretty sure they came to Vancouver not too long ago and I missed that as well, might be wrong though.

Anyways fuck my life, and what are yours?

bothering to try to see Turbonegro in 2008. I don't remember what they were up against, but it had to have been better.

That's funny. 08 was my first Coachella and Cut Copy was one of the first acts I ever saw. I had no idea who I was seeing at the time and I loved it. The friends I was with too had wanted to see VW also and we ended up staying to watch Cut Copy.

On that note my biggest regret is that I didn't make it to a Coachella until 08.

That I wasted my time watching M.I.A. and her air-horn over staying to watch Band of Horses! What a waste....to this day I wont listen to her.

missing the whole or parts of the following artists:

1999 – not going to both days, but i could barely afford the one day (i also bought a ticket for my sister and my best friend, too).

2001 – sneaked in by 7pm, but at least i got to see who i wanted - phew!

2002 – cake, folk implosion, elbow, foo fighters, the mars volta, the strokes.

2003 – blur, the hives, hot hot heat, n.e.r.d., the rapture, fischerspooner, sonic youth, underworld.

2004 – juana molina.

2005 – bauhaus.

2006 – tv on the radio, wolfmother, gnarls barkley, scissor sisters, (walking away from yeah yeah yeahs midset for a good spot for madonna – she was late!)

2007 – brazilian girls, gogol bordello (but i don’t regret seeing björk), sonic youth, justice, peter bjorn & john, lily allen, css, mika, soulwax, julieta venegas.

2008 – dredg, walking away from kraftwerk to watch m.i.a. (she was awesome, but i could’ve done without 5 minutes of those infamous airhorns!), mark ronson, porishead’s shortened set (freakin’ diva prince!), yelle, yoav.

2009 – the aggrolites, cage the elephant, el gran silencio, molotov, patton & rahzel, switch, crystal method (i went to the wrong tent, i’m a dumbass!)

I don't have any regrets other than not hooking up with a chick I met last year from San Francisco because I was dating some chick who wound up breaking up with me anyway. Too bad I smoked too much pot back then because I don't even remember her name.

I regret not having the legs to walk to the main stage to see Depeche Mode in 2006. I've never seen them, but I knew if I left the Sahara I wouldn't have returned for the Daft Punk surprise. And Audio Bullys were atrocious while we were waiting. Atrocious.

not seeing digitalism, cut copy, dark side, kode9

after 5 years of going, i don't compromise anymore. i will happily go to a stage alone and simply make friends.

Missing Beirut last year. This past year I've been thinking that they conflicted with Ghostland's set, which I was at and enjoyed very much. But now I just looked up a set times schedule from last year and realized that they only conflicted for 10 minutes. I was fucking walking around during Beirut's set. FML!

Missing half of TV On The Radio's set last year. Skipping MIA and Glass Candy for Crookers (I think), waiting my ass off to see Sebastien Tellier and then being disappointed. Missing Junior Boys, even though I'd have been nuts to leave MBV.

Apparently you missed the entire point of My Bloody Valentine over the last 20 years.

My Biggest Coachella Regret:

I met and had fun with SOOOO many foreign concert goers over the years at Coach. My biggest regret is not getting all of their contact information. I've stayed in touch with quite a few people, but there are many who I spent an amazing weekend with and will never see or here from them again. Also, there's been a few times i've been traveling and could have used the logistic help/couch of said foreigners...

Other than that..no regrets.

Haha, this is great. I love how he knows the name of one of the band members but was obviously never a fan of them at all.

I could write some kind of Pitchforkian essay to this dumbtittery. That said, it's not for everybody. If you ever listened to their music beforehand, their show shouldn't have come as any surprise.

Maybe he mistook them for My Chemical Romance or Bullet for my Valentine.

maybe i didnt, my point was that on a cd you can hear her voice (which i happen to like), and that live they felt the need to play so loud(i get that its there "thing") that her voice was completely drowned out.

Kill yourself now. I can drink 16 oz. of beer in 3.6 seconds. I wasn't missing Aphex Twin for nuthin! I even got to the tent early just so I could park myself 10 ft from the stage.
