Saturday, June 4.

It was looking like it might be the following Saturday, when everyone of real interest would be at Bonnaroo or in Europe. Still, I'm expecting Blink or Incubus to headline (bleh).

Cage the Elephant, Foster the People and Mumford and Sons all seem likely to play.

It's all about sucking up to KROQ and making sure they keep playing your records.

Linkin Park, Foo Fighters, Rise Against, My Chemical Romance , 30 Seconds to Mars, The Strokes all have gaps in their schedules for that weekend too.

Based on Live 105 BFD lineup looks like Linkin Park is locked to headline, or at least co-headline if they also manage to get RHCP, Foo Fighters or Beastie Boys.

Doubtful The Strokes will be there since a Coachella headliner never played Weenie Roast in same year plus KROQ barely plays them anymore.

Cage the Elephant, Neon Trees, Foster the People, Lykke Li, Bad Religion, Middle Class Rut I would consider as locks to appear.

Thundermare

Your Strokes theory is questionable.

In 2008 or so their Acoustic Xmas had The Killers and The Cure on the same night both of whom played Coachella 4 months later.

Why would they just sit around doing nothing. Have they even played a show in LA yet?

Bons222000

uh so 3/6 bands you call locks appeared at coachella, but for some reason the headliner can't? You realize that more times than not coachella headliners simply aren't bands that get a lot of kroq airplay, right?

drummer333
04-19-2011, 10:21 PM

the only time they have ever played was in 09... I guess that counts as always playing though

Having a Coachella headliner play at Weenie Roast a month and a half later diminishes the Coachella brand, especially since The Strokes would not be top-billed for Weenie Roast. Live 105's BFD show in Bay Area is far enough locations-wise such that it matters less, but even that is getting criticized esp. since The Strokes are billed behind both Linkin Park and Snoop Dogg.

If The Strokes really were playing Weenie Roast, they would get played a lot more right now on KROQ. On KROQ's yearly countdowns, lead singles "Last Night" was #3, "12:51" was #10, and "Juicebox" was #12 for the year. Yet "Under Cover of Darkness" somehow can't crack their weekly Top 20 Most Played, not even once in the past 2 months. In comparison, "Under Cover of Darkness" is the second most played song last week on Live 105 so of course they're playing Live 105's show.

Well when your bands sells out arena tours without a new album on a consistent basis, youre probably going to get top billing. And The Strokes will get an hour, which is just the same amount of time they had at Coachella.

LP do have a new album out at the moment, further reason for them to #1 at a KROQ event.

The strokes will kill it, but if that's your top pick I'd just wait. Manager said June/July after Coachella was over. Well unless this is all we get...

Yeah that is true. And they get played on kroq all the time. The Strokes will kill it too just like they did at Coachella. I just hope they come back around with their own show.

If the Strokes played the bowl would they be able to do it on their own? Or would they go for something like Phoenix/Grizzly Bear did

TomServo
05-03-2011, 03:02 PM
There's an awful lot of MV hate on this forum. I'm not saying they're good, but it's like they raped somebody's baby around here.

I was very entertained by MV at Voodoo a couple years ago... more bent and broken mic stands in an hour than I'd seen in my entire lifetime! STP was terrible, though. Uninspired musicality and a drunken/high frontman = boring.

TheRotten42
05-03-2011, 03:59 PM

Better than Linkin Park, Rise Against, Cage The Elephant, and Neon Trees, yes. I just remember when I was in high school the line up for the Weenie Roast was always worthy. Last few years have been shit with crappy bands that will fall off the face of the earth as soon as kroq find the next cookie cutter crap act.

BeeII
05-03-2011, 04:35 PM

Better question would be does any one care? Last time I was forced to sit through Linkin Park was Epicenter 09 while waiting for Tool after Alice In Chains finished up (why they lined it up that way is still beyond me), and the best part of their set was when all audio from the stage was cut for about 5 mins.
