If anyone sees a fat white dude going nuts to this song in the front row during JF's set, that'll be me! :) Be sure to say hi. .... after the song. :cool:

I plan on seeing them the Tuesday after Coachella in Phoenix, I figure that will help me cope with the post-festival blues. Also, it'll be nice to see them in a different environment. :)

Buy the way, if you buy tix through their website they're cheap and without $5 bucks of TM fees. $14.50 for the show at the Rhythm Room.


Why the fuck aren't more of you talking about this band!?!?!?!?!Shhhh! For overcrowding's sake, let's keep our wits about us.

I love this band so much I actually pre-ordered the UK special edition, which showed up a few weeks ago. I actually got a piece of her shattered guitar with it! The spec. ed. is fantastic, it comes with a DVD of an accoustic set + interview + all their videos, a second live DVD, then an extra CD of tracks that didn't make the album.

The album is really solid; I think they probably picked the "right" tracks to repeat from their self-released album from last year, and the newer tracks are all really solid.

This is the best find on the line up for me. The Big Roar is fantastic and all the live videos I have seen of them are great. Mid-afternoon gobi set plz!

I seriously cannot get enough of this band right now. Both A Balloon Called Moaning and The Big Roar are totally fantastic from start to finish. the way some of these songs just rock the fuck out i can see them being total monsters live too.

Drinkey, I was like four people behind you for this rockin' set, but you took off as I was gonna run up and say hi and attempt to high five your epic beard. I got a picture of you getting a picture, though. So there's that. What a great show..... Can't wait to see them again in Phoenix!!

Why is this thread so quiet? One of my favorite sets of the festival.

So glad I got there in time for "Whirring". One of my favorite songs of the weekend for sure. That crazy noise jam they did at the end was nuts.

Missing this was my biggest regret of the weekend. I was really pumped about this and I'm glad they rocked it. It was just too early in the day!

was hoping Paul Draper would waltz out for the 'Greyhound in the Slips' opener, but alas not. Sound better live then they do on record. Had 'The Greatest Light' planted firmly in my brain afterward ("da da da, this dream is").

I got there right at the set's end and saw the chaos they wrought, gave me goosebumps, wish I looked into 'em more

They fucking tore it up. Top 5 of the festival for me. What a fantastic performance.

The Joy Formidable will be chatting and playing a track live on tinychat tomorrow.


With just a week to go 'til we finish our North American tour and as we really enjoyed the brief webchat we did in SXSW; we've decided to do another one this Saturday, tomorrow at 2pm Kansas City time (Central time) ( That'll be 8pm in the UK, 3pm on the East Coast, 12pm on the West Coast). You can log in to the chat at Tinychat.com/TheJoyFormidable and we'll be performing a track, answering questions, talking nonsense, the usual.

Wouldn't it be rather cool if we could get some acts to do a track or two on tinychat in the run up to the 2012 festival (IE after lineup announcement), maybe just from their rehearsal space/another show.

This reminded me of seeing Bob Mould early in the Gobi a few years ago. Loud as hell, amazing set, and setting the bar for the rest of the day. They were fantastic. My friend just saw them in Pittsburgh, where they played for less than 75 people (much different than playing Coachella).

Why does every band I fall in love with end up on a Twilight soundtrack?

And "Endtapes" is such a great song. But if bought from iTunes, I will have to suffer the awful album cover art popping up in my screensaver.

The Joy Formidable does no wrong, and I'm impatiently awaiting their new album next week. It's been getting great reviews by several of the music rags.

the new album is a weak album 4 decent tracks on there, but then again add those 4 to their 6 other decent tracks and theyve got a decent sized setlist

Sadly (truly), they're done touring for a while. Ritzy said they will be working on new material but that probably won't be finished until later next year at the earliest. Thought they might be a repeat for 2012 but not so (missed the 2011 set cuz of the ungodly early time slot). Really hope the next album gives them the attention they deserve.
