From theaquabats.com:


Speaking of a foot in the booty, The Aquabats would also like to confirm the fact that... YES... WE ARE PLAYING COACHELLA!!! We can't believe it either, but legend has it that Coachella Festival creator and super champion Paul Tollet called the Bat Commander last week and said these words: 'Well, Commander... you are in a band .. and I do a festival... so... what do you say? Its time you played Coachella...!' The Bat Commander was then reported to have a nervous breakdown and curl up into a ball and cry. It is a historical year so far kids and this only adds to the special time we are in together as the Aquabats continue to surpass expectations!! Who knew!? We are all very excited and can guarantee that this will be the greatest performance of our careers... at Coachella!! Plans are already being made to make this an incredible event!!

Our little army, we were commandos, guerrillas with decoder rings, we felt some opposition from villains who were wishin they could be cadets and kings!

All systems go! Soon COACHELLA will know, the fury of attack, feel the wrath of the super rad, super rad.

omg if they play Playdough i'd bust a nut.


When I was a little man, playdough came in a little can, I was star wars biggest fan, no i'm stuck without a plan. GI Joe was an action man, Shaggy Joe the mystery van, divo was my favorite band, take me back to my happy land.

Those expecting a ska-heavy setlist are going to be disappointed. Most of what they play is post-Fury, particularly a little heavy on Charge. They'll play Super Rad and Martian Girl of course, and if we're lucky they'll throw in another oldie. They're good about that sometimes, between the last four times I've seen them they've also done CD Repo Man, Cat With 2 Heads, Attacked By Snakes, & Captain Hampton. Not all at one show though, so don't get your hopes up guys.

Either way it's going to be a blast and probably the most fun out of any set that weekend.

They need to be in the "fun" tent with Black Joe Lewis and Flogging Molly

cutterbutter
02-09-2011, 03:17 PM
I've heard The Cat with 2 Head, Magic Chicken, and Red Sweater too. It depends really if Chainsaw or Bones is on the guitar, and if Catboy is there for the trumpet. I'm sure it was only heavy on Charge because it was that tour and the lineup was made for it.

agreed, but i wouldnt expect most sets from their coachella performance. they are performing to a crowd that they know normally doesnt make it out to bats shows, so i imagine they are going to make a special setlist with that in mind. i dont know what to expect but i trust the bats to do me well

A lot more Hi-Five Soup heavy than I was expecting but at least they're playing the better songs from that album.

Exact same setlist(even the order) as their show in LA two weeks ago, just without the Minor Threat cover. Always a good time, but I wish they would drop some of the fan favorites so they could mix it up more. Giant Robot Birdhead was the best part of the night.

with how much water weighs and how much will spill out while trying to make it to the tent this all seems like kind of a waste. just bring in a bunch of inflatable pool toys to blow up and throw around. maybe the bats will do their crowdsurf/raft races, too.

I don't see why not, god im so stoked to see all the beach gear inside the festival! COOL POOL PARTY BROS!

Think "Idiot Box" is too much to ask for or are they not into their old catalogue anymore?

Idiot Box wouldn't be unheard of, but it would surprise me.

Super Rad, Martian Girl, Cat with 2 Heads, and Captain Hampton are the staples from Fury lately. Red Sweater depending on the members that show up.

I got a speeding ticket while I was listening to The Aquabats the other day, I was singing too much to notice the cop hiding in the bushes. I wish the cop would have understood my reason for speeding :(

No hope of any "Return" tracks huh?

This thread makes me feel like a senor citizen.

It's not that they're isnt hope for them, its just not common because they spread the set across all their albums (5 now), and they often dont have the horn section. Because of that the choices gravitate to post-fury stuff.

But out of all the times I've seen them I've heard Marshmallow Man and CD repo man because those were the villains of the show. And I've heard a weird jam of the playdough riff. O and Idiot Box but I guess thats a Fury song too...

There's hope sure, but the band is still active in making new music and no one should plan for any deep cuts, especially at a festival set!

But the set it going to kill. Don't turn away!

Damn, I remember I started listening to them in December 2004. My brother introduced me to them and I fell in love. Surprised it took this long for them to finally be at Coachella, considering they started in 1994 and were on Goldenvoice's record label.

I really hope they bust out the Minor Threat cover.

I've been telling people from the beginning not expect a bunch of rarities, the Aquabats tend to play it pretty safe with setlists. I imagine we will get at least one song that they don't play too often though.

I went to my first show in 2004.

I'm not gonna count N'Sync in 1999 because I was 6 and I remember nothing from it except falling asleep, and then waking up with nacho cheese in my pocket.

My first time seeing the 'bats was a couple years back when they did a free show at six flags up in Valencia. It was the first show they had done with their brass in a long while, and afterwards I got every one of them to autograph my ticket and got pictures with most of them. :D

But I'm glad, having such a good timeslot opens them up to a whole new audience.

I expected Martian Girl and Pool Party to close out. This was still my 2nd favorite set of the weekend. It seems like everyone who was there was a fan/cadet since they were 15 years old. Kings Of Leon showed up too! And Falcor!

absolutely made my Friday. I love the 'Bats, they always put on an epic show. I nostalgia'd all over the front pit when pizza day started. Was hoping to hear danger woman or hey luno, and was sad when they got cut off, but didn't stop it from being the best set of my day.

for one reason or another i wasn't able to go to aquabats, but as i was walking around i said fuck it and ran over and skanked my ass off by myself to cat with 2 heads in the back of the tent. looking back this was a highlight of the weekend for me.

My friends and I waited and waited for them to start. Took ages to get ready.

I was frying pretty hard and I thought that the people running around the stage setting up was actually part of the show lol

When the intro movie started I was like holy shit this is going to be EPIC!

Then I heard THEEEEEEEEE AAAAAAAAQUABATS!!!!!!!! And they started playing.

I instantly said "Let's go" and we bailed and went to the Sahara.

For the rest of the weekend at Coachella (and the foreseeable future) whenever anyone in my group said "Aquabats" it was the code to leave and go someplace else.

Shame, I was really excited to see them.

This doesn't make any sense? Why would you wait so long and leave as soon as they started?

Sound was flat. Didn't sound good at all. I was having the best time ever at everything I saw on Friday and the instant they started playing something in my head clicked and said "WRONG" and we vacated off to someplace that better suited us.

I'm really disappointed that they didn't get to finish their set, it was so awesome.

the Aquabats were one of the best sets all weekend for me just because i wasn't expecting much. i've never been a fan, don't care much for ska, but we were so bored during Magnetic Man that we wandered over to check it out and i was surprised at how cool the whole thing was... didn't hurt that i was feeling completely silly on 'cibin at the time, but they went above & beyond my meager expectations and it was a great show. all other acts were just about as cool as i was expecting, no big surprises, but i'm glad i made a point to check them out this year.

I don't know why I waited so long ask this, buuut there were two guys that I talked to waiting for Kogi tacos. They tour with the aquabats and they were from Minnesota. Neil and Bryan I think. I hit one of them with napkins before leaving to get a good spot for The National haha. They were nifty people. Say hi if you see this!

Yeah, they opened for the Aquabats and Reel Big Fish when I saw them back in January (Their group is Koo Koo Kanga Roo). Music isn't the best or anything, their lyrics are intentionally pretty silly, but they know how to put on a fun show and get the crowd involved and make everyone have a good time. Everyone was smiling during their set.

Awesome dudes too, very nice and cool.

I hadn't even really heard of the Aquabats much. I read the article that they had in the CAMP magazine thing and knew I had to go see them because nothing else was great during that time (imo) and my wife really liked them. We took a couple of friends we camped with...
Turned out being one of the best shows of the whole weekend. Scratch that... one of the best adventures of the whole weekend... FUCK CAVEMEN! haha
