^ I dunno. It's just a projector with leaf shaped screens. And just Simon, who's DJ sets are usually a snore.
This could go over like the failure of Etienne de Crappy in 09.

if it's not live it will no doubt be a disappointment to some ~~~ but i seen the dj set and in my opinion it wasn't THAT bad (alcohol might have had a lot to do with it). then again, i also enjoyed etienne's set (alcohol might have had a lot to do with it) -- which i understand a lot of people didn't. regardless, i hope everyone has a good time (alcohol might help)

Not sure about their live show.

It's like a new age hippie swingers party on stage. As if Electric Skychurch were still a going concern and they hired all their aging, crystal-obsessed buddies over to play strange instruments or just dance around and sing thin vocals over recycled 90's beats.

So, alcohol helps, eh?

Usually if an act is playing a DJ set, it will say "DJ Set" next to their name. GV has always been pretty good about that (Chems and Groove Armada in 09, Mylo in 2006, etc). Chems is live, Sphongle is live.

I don't think Shpongle is for everyone... For me, the long drawn out instrumentals, flute/drum solos, strange voice overs (even similar to Orbitals obscurity), tribal tones, and colorful theatrics all make it interesting to listen to, and dance. Reach into your earthy-psychedelic soul, and just let the music take you over. Not to mention a lot of the female vocals are outstandingly beautiful, and eerie. They have a lot going on in the live show, that can be appreciated by most.

Also if you have ever done hallucinogens, you should get it ;)

But Shpongle dj sets have live performers too. In fact the first time I saw the dj set, there was a huge performance and charade on stage. So that wouldn't make it live.

It's not truly live unless Raja Ram and the instrumentals are there.

Not live... Fucking awesome. I swear to God the U.S. is never going to get a live Shpongle show. Hopefully they at least give Simon a nighttime set because Shpongle during the day will bum me out. As stated many times in previous Shpongle threads, Shpongle Dj sets are nothing to get too excited about although we still will get some of the cool visuals associated with the live show including dancers, video, etc... Still worth checking out.

Also if you are a big fan a people pressing play and dancing, then this show will blow your fucking mind.

what is sphongles best album for a new listenerJust speaking from experience...this is exactly what did it for me: "Tales of the Inexpressible", specifically Around The World in a Tea Daze. I couldn't get enough of that song the first several times I heard it. At first I didn't like the rest of the album nearly as much. But then I started listening to the whole album at night, in the dark, and with decent earbuds. And it all just clicked.

I love ALL of their albums, but I find myself going back to "Nothing Lasts... But Nothing is Lost" more often than the others. Tracks 2-4 on this album should always be listened to back to back, it's pretty amazing.

And I don't do drugs. :)

Doesn't it make financial sense for them to make it a LIVE show? If the live show is wildly successful and everyone at Coachella talks about the set afterward, wouldn't that launch their popularity and therefore increase the demand for a more extensive tour, equaling more potential revenue?

Obviously Shpongle is no where in the same league as Daft Punk, but look at DP's resurgence after a great Coachella set. Is it completely unreasonable to say Shpongle would greatly benefit from pulling out all the stops and doing whatever they could to make this an incredible experience??

Quite literally a monumental creation, the "Shpongletron" itself is the brainchild of VJ Zebbler and Coast II Coast Entertainment. It is the visual expression of Shpongle's multi-dimensional auditory experience. Towering 18-feet above the stage and blasting audiences with 4 levels of psychedelic mayhem, concertgoers should expect nothing less than the best in modern eye candy. With platforms on each side of the structure for dancers to memorize the crowd with LED hula-hoops and other glowing art forms, a blooming lotus-like array of screens and an always enigmatic Posford at the center of it all, The Shpongletron Experience is like nothing Shpongle fans have ever seen before. The structure also features a 6-foot Shpongle Mask (the iconic face that often adorns Shpongle's albums) that virtually comes alive with projected visuals and animatronics.

yeah... except the fact that the Shpongletron Experience isnt a bunch of cheap ass pvc pipe and a projection screen.

If the Shplolngletron Experience doesn't involve a projection screen, why do I see images being projected onto a screen in that video up above?

i think he meant to emphasize that there will be no cheap pvc pipes.. or at least they wont be showing

Gotta admit I feel kinda spoiled because I think that Spoogetron set up is a bit trite.

You're right, I'm not sure where I got the idea that he was also talking about a projection screen.

oh i wasn't trying to be a smartass or anything.. crimescene gave that description which stated there were projected visuals, so i just figured it had been put to rest and you were legitimately asking the question

Ah, gotcha. I don't give Coachella Bound the benefit of the doubt, but I think you're right on this one.

the best part is when he has people stand on the shpongletron opening and closing umbrellas.

FUCKIN CHUT UP ALREADY....!!!

i understand the frustration but cmon... it is what it is. If anything we need as many people as possible to show up for Simons set. Show him how much support exists here in the states and that we all want the real deal. Make signs, dress up, but instead of bitching about it on here bring your voice to the Polo Fields.

QFT

you guys gotta stop crying about this. we get to party to some sick tribal shit with crazy visuals. bring some glow-paint, wear some funky outfit, and make sure you have an attractive partner to dance with. you will have a great time.

i cant wait!

Getting an act like shpongle LIVE would really set Coachella apart from other mainstream state festivals.

here, let me rephrase my statement so it might be easier for you to understand...

Etiene De Crecy was nothing but cheap pvc and a gimmick that relied completely on a projection screen. The Shpongletron is something far more elaborate.
