As tends to be my way at festivals, I will probably miss the 5 acts I planned to see most cos I'll be too busy doing something else.

PassiveTheory
03-12-2007, 09:43 AM
1. The Good, The Bad, The Queen (not impressed)
2. Nickle Creek
3. Travis
4. Fountains of Wayne
5. Jack's Mannequin

Now, in terms of unforunate time conflicts, here are the top 5 I would regret missing the most.

1. The Decemberists (might be closing Outdoor Theatre during RHCP)
2. Air (if they close out Outdoor/Sahara... I'd have to miss them for RATM)
3. Happy Mondays (if they close out Mojave/Outdoor... I'd have to miss them for RATM)
4. Kaiser Chiefs (on the same tier as Placebo, Damien Rice, New Porn, etc.)
5. Bjork (if Faithless closes Sahara on Friday Night, I'll be seeing that instead)

4. the Avett Bros?
5. Mika?

who are these people?

I'm interested to find out why you dismiss them completely, yet don't know who they are....



Only acts I know I'll definitely miss are

1.RHCP - seen 'em, bleh. Don't need the hassle of waiting for a headliner that isn't worth it.

2.Willie Nelson - he's a legend, and a hilarious pothead curmudgeon, but I've never dug him.

3.Ghostface Killah - Wu Tang would have been worth seeing but not solo, thanks.

4.Nickel Creek - aren't they at the Polo Grounds a week early?

5.Blonde Redhead - they sucked at Lolla 05, so no thanks.



...and for the record, Fountains of Wayne won't even be in the top 10 worst acts of the weekend. I caught a little bit of their set at Summerfest and it's fun, tight indie pop. Nothing more, nothing less.

1) Interpol - Like their music, seen them live. Boring.

2) Jesus and Mary Chain - I'm unfamiliar besides a song or two I've heard and they're billed high enough that someone else will be worth seeing.

3) Fountains of Wayne - They wrote "Stacy's Mom".

4) Paul van Dyk - I liked his music in 1999. It's 2007 and now I know the difference between good and bad music.

5) Teddybears - Did they rip off Kid Rock with that one song?

Rage Against The Machine - nothing against em just not my scene
Red Hot Chilli Peppers - They make me throw up in my mouth, survery says, No

Those are the only 3 I would definitely rule out, however there are others I might miss but probably only for a lack of knowledge or time on my part.

Interpol-
They have a few songs that i like, but otherwise their music is very redundant and boring, and i can't imagine being bored by them live. I could care less to see them live really. Besides, they are a quintessential hipster/emo magnet band. Blah...

Willie Nelson-
His music never did much for me. Much respect to him and his legacy, but I really don't care too much.

Placebo
Once again- the hipster/emo music- never has and never will do anything for me. There are tons of bands out there that sound just like them. Is the disco rock era almost over yet?

Fountains of Wayne
How could they even be playing the same day as Kings of Leon and The Black Keys? F of W is music for 12 year olds. So so so boring, and typical. I pray that i don't have to see them waiting for Rage! God, that would be torture. Cuz i know i'm not going to leave my spot while waiting.

Kaiser Chiefs
One of those bands thati could care less to see live. Listening to their music is already enough of a stretch outside of my taste.

Actually, hipsters tend to hate Placebo because they're a successful British rock band that isn't Radiohead. On the ateaseweb music forum, aka the unofficial pitchforkmedia.com messageboard there have been no fewer than 100 alias accounts created solely to slam Placebo, like "Placebo Fucking Suck", "Placebo = rap/rock", "Huge Fan of ToolPlaceboICP", etc. And a hundred more for Tool or Christopher O'Riley.

Although this thread is terrible, I can't resist:

1. RATM -- am avoiding Sunday just to avoid their fans
2. Arctic Monkeys -- wish they were this year's Franz, but they're not
3. Kid Beyond -- if I wasn't missing Sunday cause of Rage, I'd skip because of him!
4. Girl Talk -- I'm hoping Shaun Ryder feeds this guy too many e's so he'll expire midset
5. Travis -- who the fuck are they, and why are they listed so high?

Nickel Creek sure is unpopular. I don't know why all the hate. I haven't actually heard them, I just know of them because of some Radiohead covers.

03-12-2007, 08:54 PM
Arctic Monkeys
Jacks Mannequin

....other than that I am pretty oppen
There are a bunch of other artists I dont care about, but Im not gonna list them as I am NOT gonna see them. The ones above, I will NOT see garunteed.

Woh, woh, woh though! I see a couple people have Rodrigo y Gabriela on there. Why!? Thier music is mindblowingly amazing. They are two of the most talented guitarists I have ever heard. Who knew you could turn Stairway into a spanish song? And who can pull off an acoustic version of a classic Metallica instrumental? They are definately in my top 5 MUST see.

I didn't bother listing any of those. They bands I don't want to see are bands I know for a fact I don't want to see. There's tons of bands I've never heard of, but I like that. I can go into the show with out any preconceptions that way.

Wow,Yablo I'll see you in front at Fountains of Wayne.Look for an Aidz Needlez t-shirt with a Rat Fink on front.I'm even more of a fan after seeing Music & Lyrics,which,while infinitely forgettable,has really memorable songs by Adam Schlesinger + Radiation Vibe playing in one scene.

It's crazy that a HEADLINER (RHCP) gets so many votes...I think it illustrates that GV screwed up on that one.

Also, I've seen Anathallo and the Avett Bros come up on a couple lists...they are without a doubt my two favorite artists that I've discovered from this years lineup. Check em out... both great for completely different reasons.

Actually, it shows that music snobs don't like RHCP. And I use that term in the most polite way possible, because I sometimes consider myself a music snob. There are 4,651 registered members on this forum, and only 2,196 are considered active. When you put this in context, given 60,000 people exactly will be attending Saturday and give the benefit of the doubt to the ENTIRE forum and say all 4,651 members do NOT want the Chili Peppers there ...what that means is roughly 7.75% attendee are NOT going to watch the Chili Peppers. Obviously there are an innumerable wrongful assumptions in my previous statement, but not nearly as many as there is in yours. Basically, next to Rage, my guess is the Chili's are going to attracting the biggest crowd at the entire festival.
P.S. I will agree that the Avett Bros definately have my interest.
