Not a rumor, but didn't want to put it in the lineup thread. I just found out Groove Armada will be playing the Hollywood Bowl this summer! I would love to see them added to Coachella as a Sahara headliner! I wonder how possible this would be?

That would be nice... but I'm not holding my breath. I'm hoping (and assuming) they're getting a full band together for the Bowl gig. Though they tore it up in the tent just spinning records a couple years ago, it'll be great to see their live show again.

What does their live set look like?

Do they play any of their slower stuff? I would love to hear some of the softer moments off of Vertigo, especially.

I think they had about 10 people on stage the first time I saw them back in 2000. Vocalists, percussion, guitars, etc. Of course Andy busts out the trombone for At The River. They mix it up with a nice blend of the faster and slower stuff.

It's a great live show.... and yes, the ladies love it. I just got my cheap-o tickets for the Hollywood Bowl show. Can't beat $7 tickets and an awesome BYOB policy.

here's an interview with the guys from when I saw them at the Mayan in LA.

I'm going to see them at the V Festival in Sydney tomorrow. They are tops live. Should be a great day. The Pixies, Jarvis, Gnarls Barkley, the Rapture, Beck, Pet Shop Boys and Soulwax are all on the bill as well.
