I'm done dealing with the floor crowd at the Fonda. Rather get there early & secure good seats up in the balcony. Especially for this show. Then again, I may end up selling my tickets since it's on a weeknight. Not sure what my work schedule is going to be like come that time.

To all of you who are going to these shows - you are going to witness something absolutely amazing. Anyone who isn't - do whatever it takes to get a ticket.

I hadn't played the album for ages when I ventured along to see them at Glastonbury last night, but I thought I'd give their first ever European performance a look.

All I can say is - WOW!

Much more of a dance vibe live - the beats are a lot heavier. The stage show is amazing, with the dancers changing outfits throughout the set. It was my favourite performance of the festival and possibly ever (and I am a fussy fucker).

well up until now they've really never toured the U.S., so I guess you can attribute a lot of the hype to the fact that most people around here haven't experienced them live yet.. Though I do see what you mean in terms of some similarity with MGMT.. I don't know, they just seem way more epic and fantastical to me.. plus mgmt kinda sucks live haha

Yeah, that would be nice. Not counting on it, but it would be a bonus. Screen or no screen, I think the costumes and production level alone will be worth it compared to watching KOL.

WOWOWOWOWOWOWWOO! Funnest show i've been to in a while. Way over the top, lights, costume changes, dancers and the bass could be felt throughout the floor (or at least where i was standing). Get thee to these shows! Supre called it and i'm seconding...Sahara tent next year!

man, I'm pretty excited for Sunday now. I actually just wrote an e-mail to Outside Lands/APE and begged for them to erect the screen for Empire. If anyone on this board has any pull with APE, you should suggest the same. Especially if this is their "SF show."

i dont know what in the world is wrong, but youve all lost your fucking mindz.....

we're talking about musicians here first, and stage performers second. Granted, what i experienced last night was infact beatifull, and quite possibly one of the coolest science fiction back drops ive ever seen. But lets be honest, the music sucked a big fat disease filled cock.... minus maybe 3 songs. (Standing On the Shore, A Dream, We Are the People) They play the good songs well, and this gives me hope.

I will also say this. A couple of my friends steped into the otherside for last nights performance, they loved it. Ive never been a patron of having to take drugs to enjoy music. But this might be an exception to the rule.

^ I'll admit that I only know one or two songs, but I'm all for being WOWed by a performance, especially at a festival. You never know unless you go, right? I've seen KOL and I know what they have to offer musically and performance wise, so I can rationalize missing half of their set at Outside Lands for the chance to Empire while they are on top of their game.

I am really skeptical about this.

Coachella Bound
08-12-2010, 09:00 AM
No no... by all means go. Experience it for yourself. Thats how i am w/ music and thats why i went last night. I started a small conversation w/ a couple next to me in the crowed. Briefly asking what it was that had persuaded them to attend.... obvious general curiosity, the youtube vids, but not so much the music. We both agreed right as Empire was going on, w/ music its alwayz best to try and enjoy it before you hate it.

Honestly go...!!! The visuals are unmatched to the majority of live performances ive seen in my lifetime, but maybe take some magic... and get a bacon wrapped hotdog if that chica happens to be outside after the show.

08-12-2010, 12:07 PM
yes check tm.. the band is from Australia so they dont end up using all the tickets they have on hold because they dont know anyone out here. so there are a few that were released last night.. maybe some more for today and tomorrow. follow goldenvoice on twitter. we tweeted when they were available yesterday.

Yeah, probably. i was hoping for some sort of average, or generality. I guess there's a million different factors to consider so that's not really possible.

Supre you know how i stand on the show on a whole.... i think theyre relying too much on the distraction of the live performance. Your photos are amazing though, gotta show the love when its due.

By the way i saw you again last night after the show, talking w/ a larger gentleman in an orange shirt. Had to run, Ill get you next time......

Youre funny, and no he doesnt fake the guitar parts, just so you know. There was a part near the end where he was asking to turn it up because it wasnt loud enough. Cant fake that.

Great pictures Chris. i too am skeptical. i need to seek out more of their music, but what i've heard doesn't have me going "Yeah!". The show looks amazing, but my lack of enthusiasm comes from seeing those Cirque shows that look cool, have a lot of great stuff going on, but leave me dry due to unimpressive music. i hope that changes when i hear more.
