YES! And I have ALL of his albums, and it's hard to collect them, trust me.

didnt think he'd go to coachie. but after he got listed onto sxsw, there was hope. i wonder what new material he'll have on showcase. same group lineup; omar, juan, deantoni, lars, marcel?

i'd figure he would be over un escorpion by then? and having other new tunes.

as unlikely as it is, i'd love to see Frusciante join him for this performance, esp. given that they released 2 albums online last year & John is ostensibly not doing anything right now...

No it isn't. Go to Waterloo in Austin and they have boxes full of everything this guy has ever done.

Also, have you ever heard of amazon.com? It's pretty cool.

Maybe Cedric will pop his head in and they'll do a TMV tune.

i've got a feeling his set is either gonna be a wankfest or psychedelicambient pedal fun

not sure if youre familiar with the coma (as theres another thread about this over there) but there was a mention on how it may, or may not, be "el grupo nuevo" with him. just have to wait and see. seeing the "el grupo.." lineup make its first public appearance would be nice, it guarantees cedric and zach hill. either way, even if omar decided to do an acoustic solo set, im there.

i don't care about any of this unless its an ATDI reunion, and then it will be the #1 most important thing of the weekend.

This is gonna get way rad. I have to say, that this year has the weirdest coefficient of lame headliners vs quality, well curated experimental music.

omar rodriguez lopez - bandcamp.com (http://omardigital.rodriguezlopezproductions.com/)

definitely look into all of them, since they all vary quite a bit. some staples to check out; "xenophanes," "cryptomnesia," "old money," and "calibration."

I saw them at the Troubadour last year and it was an incredible show, the band really enjoyed themselves and were really on that night. I loved the addition of vocals of Ximena, very good addition to his band. I released a podcast with a ton of Omar stuff that was approved by Sargent House, definitely check it out if you don't know where to start and are wondering if you want to check out the music of Omar Rodriguez lopez live at Coachella. If you have heard the mans music and you enjoy, check it out anyways.

Omar is gonna put on an AMAZING show! I saw him perform his solo stuff a few months ago at the Troubadour in Hollywood and I was blown away. I've been an avid TMV follower forever, hence the name <----(RapidFireTollBooth). With Cedric having Vocals on most of Omar's solo work you can count on seeing him on the polo fields!

Omar Sampler of all kinds of his "solo" work (with all of his incarnations besides TMV) being released on Record Store Day. $19 for a 37-track double CD. Awesome!!! I really want the deluxe vinyl box set, but need to save for Coachella.

Definitely looking forward to Omar's set. Seen TMV live, and they were amazing...I except Omar to put on a hell of a set. For the ones that are not familiar with his work, I would suggest: A Manual Dexterity, Calibration, Cryptomnesia, and Xenophanes.

So ORLG actually turned out to be the newest Mars Volta lineup at SXSW AND at the ORLG Houston show last night. They've been playing all new material, assumedly from TMV's upcoming 6th album.

Wonder if we'll get Cedric et al at Coachella, too. God, I hope so. That would start my Friday off right.

Im gonna be so loaded for their show. It's been too long since I last saw them, LA 09 i believe. Maybe this keep Omar from ranting like he was at the Troubadour ORLG show.

if ur not really into this type of experimental/instrumentel rock stuff u have to be on drugs to enjoy it..lol..i went to the show in SF and i guess i sort of like it but i just really went because i like the mars volta and ximena sarinana..i actually liked only about 3 songs but the rest were a mind fuck...i eventually got high from second hand smoke (if thats possible) and everything was bliss.

Hey, you beat me. Just came to post this bad-ass video. Goddammit I can't wait to see them on the fields.

Sounds like they're doing 1/2 new Volta stuff, 1/2 new ORLG stuff. That's what some members told somebody at this show when asked, anyway. Not about Coachella specifically, or even about this whole tour, but what the first two shows have been. We'll see how it plays out.

03-27-2011, 04:03 PM
Damn I used to LOVE at the drive in... But his solo works are still awesome.
So, how'd the setlist look like for this? I only tried 3 of his albums.
And will the whole lineup from el groupo nuevo de omar.. be there?

I'm stoked for this show, regardless of their choices for a setlist. New/Old ORLG, or New/Old TMV...I see no other outcome except for pure awesomeness.

I feel like this is going to make body feel incredibly anxious and far out haha. I've seen Volta 4 times already so I think I'm ready to see this go down. I wonder if its going to be day light while they are playing. And it would be awesome to see Cedric eat a microphone

This set exceeded any idea of what I was expecting to hear. The quality of musicianship was extraordinary. Omar was so on point often channeling the spirit of Hendrix & feel of Santana. I was totally in awe by his band especially the drummer. This set was a highlight of my weekend & I'm definately not a fan of the Mars Volta live.
