No, the Dead Weather has Alison from the Kills.

DW is the bigger act.

She's also officially playing Coachella 3 years in a row. Outside the Sahara, maybe only Patton or Homme had had that honour.

I'm hoping for some Stars/Metric/Feist cameos since all 3 probably aren't touring at the time.

Duran Duran has members of Power Station

Who's in Big Audio Dynamite 2011 aside from Jones? They've had some decent named alumni.

Omar Rodriguez-Lopez is from the Mars Volta, not sure how obscure that is or if everyone took that for granted, but there it is.

Maybe I'm showing my age, but I resist the notion that Big Audio Dynamite is in any way an obscure band.

Do not go into it thinking it's going to sound anything like Bon Iver. I've been trying to like them for the past year. Trying so hard...



I was just going to type "Good to know I can cross Skrillex off my list without even needing to listen to them" and then I remembered City & Colour came out of Alexisonfire. So I do need to give them a chance.

Except he's not. He has collaborated with them, but is not in the band and has only on occasion played live with them.

City and Colour is very different than Alexisonfire. A very beautiful kind of different.
