Anyone interested in meeting up somewhere Thursday evening before the festival?? I am rolling solo. Thought it would be fun to meet some people and get all hyped up for the show! I'll be staying in La Quinta (5 min from the fields). Anyway, if anyone wants to meet up at a bar or coffee shop or wherever and to make some friends and talk music, let me know!

Counting down the days...

Yes another year I miss the meet up, Arcade Fire is keeping me busy. And yeah if the above post is any indication as to what happens keep me out.

Well I'm all for a good rapin'. Count me in.

We fly into LA though. Not sure what time we'll actually make it to Coachella-land.

haha, hopefully nothing sketchy happens. i meant more for a mass meet up! whatever. i'm sure i'll meet plenty of cool people at the festival and / or enjoy the show on my own either way. can't wait for it to get here!!

Last year we went to some sports bar type place in Palm Desert that was pretty dope. It was damn large and wasn't sketchy at all. Anyone from around there know the spot? We were with a local, so I dont remember the name of the place...I think it was off Varner or Washington quite a ways South of the 10.

Quentin
03-27-2007, 09:18 PM
Totally in if I can make it down by then...I'm planning to. We should exchange contact info, just in case :D

jimmycrackcorn
03-28-2007, 04:16 PM
two places that i recommend would be "burgers & beer" in indio (described it in the good eats in indio/coachella thread) or "the yardhouse" in the river @ rancho mirage...

bballarl
03-28-2007, 04:39 PM
Or Beerhunter in La Quinta.

SubBass49
03-28-2007, 05:20 PM
I think it was BeerHunter that we went to last year...pretty big place right?

All That I Am
03-28-2007, 07:06 PM
I guess me and my crew are in

03-28-2007, 07:43 PM
Somewhere within walking distance, or a short cab ride form the campsite would be the go. The beerhunter would seem to be the closest option, and they have pool tables and table football.

SOunds good. Palm Springs is a way nicer area then near then Indio though. Theres an Elephant BAr in Palm Springs.. and a bunch of smaller bars. Smaller BArs = Stronger Drinks.

Too bad they dont have "The Arizona" in Palm Desert...all you San Diego heads should know what I'm talking about...

Too bad about that place closing down...shit had been open since before WWII hadn't it? Strongest & cheapest drinks anywhere in San Diego, and only a few blocks from the beach.

this is a well known fact and a result of a basic law of physics. In larger bars the alcohol is spread over more people and hence is more diluted.

I don't know what I'd do with myself at a bar, unless there was a good DJ, so I'm probably out. I guess I'll be wandering about the campground Thursday night.

Courtney
03-29-2007, 08:04 AM
Drinking isn't the only thing to do at bars. There's meeting people and talking and enjoying each other's company and stuff like that... just sayin.

Also, I probably can't do anything on Thursday night, because I won't be driving in until late.

..which would only work for me if I was intoxicated in some way. I'm not very good with meeting new people, especially at bars. I'm going to try to meet people this year, at least at the campground.

sounding like beer hunter is a good option...

I understand that. I mostly meant that I like going to bars to spend time with friends I already have.

Meeting new people can be annoying. Or it can be really cool. I guess it depends on the people.

So yeah, I guess were in for some kind of secret society meety-uppy ting. That way we can all stroke our moustaches and say 'piffle'. Then everyone will KNOW were English x

I'll be in town Thursday night and would be happy to meet up with any board members, in a bar or a motel parking lot. I'll buy a round of cocktails, or an armload of 40s, whichever everyone prefers. I've found that if you pour Olde English in a martini glass is looks damn classy.

We could always roll with the DefLeague's official drink:

Hehe...by the way...yeah I know they're over the top, but they're good people...helped me get my start in producing, and also allowed me to add producing for a San Diego Music Award winner to my resume.

But on a serious note, bars are loud and the music usually sucks ass. Hotel/Motel parties are the way to go if at all possible.

Just lettin ya'll know that if it ends up at ab ar, I probably won't roll through...I'm gonna have my 16 yr old brother with me...not gonna ditch him alone. If it's a hotel/motel party though, we're down...we're stayin at the Palm Desrt Motel 6...off Varner & Washington at the I-10

jimmycrackcorn
04-09-2007, 05:49 PM
if you guys are down for it i know some really cool spots to kick it and drink outdoors... i enjoy hiking and there are a few spots that are just a few hundred feet away from good size parking lots that have NICE views of the city below... i was planning on suggesting it AFTER we meet up @ a bar but it looks like there are a few people who wouldn't be able to attend if we hang out @ a bar.. so we could save money + you will know a killer spot to visit everytime you are in the valley... there are two places i have in mind one has like six benches & a barbeque/firepit the other is really cool too... lemme know if you guys are interested and i will hike up there and take some tiny pictures with my cellphone to post... if i use my digital camera they always wind up too large to post in here :/
i'll check back on the thread after a few days

sounds interesting...where's this spot compared to Palm Desert?

jimmycrackcorn
04-09-2007, 05:56 PM
well both of them are in palm springs... there is a nice trail in palm desert too but there is nothing at the top + it is LOOONG... lets see what everybody thinks -shrugs-

SubBass49
04-09-2007, 06:07 PM
Might seem a bit sketchy to some folks...too far outta the way...too unfamiliar with the terrain. I'm thinkin' Motel parking lot party or motel room party is the way to go...at least that way we'll be in a city area...security will be close enough if someone gets sketched out...you know...

jimmycrackcorn
04-09-2007, 06:19 PM
well all i can do is offer -shrugs- i CAN tell you that there is great cellphone reception there (i go hiking all the time)... it IS just a few hundred feet from a museum parking lot so plenty of parking.... finally, i am sure most people will not be coming by themselves so they will be more comfortable... i will be rolling solo so i would be WAYYYY outnumbered if i wanted to go psychokiller and try to victimize anybody.... lemmeknowassup
either way i am still interested in meeting up somewhere...

Michelle I can't believe you are going solo...me too! Thats why I posted that I had an extra ticket on myspace. I know you aren't camping and I am but we should totally meet up. Sweet! Another chick who isn't afraid to just go and do shit on her own...I'm totally down to meet up and meet people. Happiness! On the hiking thing...it sounds pretty cool, but also kinda weird (hey girls lets hike to this remote area with a great view lmao-) I know it's probably totally cool and I would be down to go if a group of people were going. If anyone wants to chat or greet before thrusday night send me a message on here or on myspace (i check it a lot) www.myspace.com/sufferforit

To get on the Filter list (if it's not full already) check the Filter pre-party thread. You e-mail some address with your name and your guests' names and they send you a confirmation if you're on the list or not.

As for my little brother, I'm hoping they'll let him in...lol...it's not in a club as far as I understand...the e-mail I got sounded like it's gonna be at a campground or desert spot...

Yep, I am just a Coachella wanna be dog as it were this year .. but I do have two under my belt, so not a rookie anyway … I come to this board because I like Coachella’s genre of music so much, and it gets me up to date (although I hope I am somewhat up to date) … we will hit Coachella next year for sure unless we fly to Europe for 3 or 4 of their fests …. We are hitting 3 fests for sure stateside this summer, so you are all welcome to come and visit us there ….. vegoose I would guess is the closest to the type of music that Coachella has, and all of the late night parties and concerts are way fun … cr*****

well of course i signed up for the filter party too and got a confirmation e-mail... BUT it says right on it that it was automatically generated so i'll believe i got in when i receive the directions to the "undisclosed location" for the shuttles... as to how we could all meet up, i was planning on wearing one of those sticky "hello my name is" badges and i'm gonna write on it jimmycrackcorn (big)
are you on the boards? (on a second one)

yeah, the meet up has definitely changed to the filter pre-party. i also have confirmation (the auto-response) for the party. i think it will kick ass. hopefully we can all just talk to as many people as we can and all meet each other. sounds like it is going to be pretty crazy... hope we are not TOO tired for the start of the festival. i'm sure we'll all be sooo pumped though.
