Thank you, GV. I've been waiting for a proper second date with Karen since 06. You put my goddess on in the middle of the day last time, dammit.

Although I appreciate your taste and will be stoked to see her sparkle at night, you are not making this board any better at the moment.

It's just more of the same. We don't need a thread for every band you hope is on the line-up. You're just going to encourage the dimwits.

No, Gunz, this is me starting threads for bands that are ON the lineup in advance. I'm not wishing for them.

Well whatever. It's just adding to the mess. I get the Nick Cave one because there are too many ignorant people out there, but we don't need one for the YYYs.

um, that wasn't the middle of the day. that was sunset aka "the magic hour". i saw yyys a week ago at the glasshouse and during one of the slower intros i closed my eyes and could see them on the main, long shadows, golden red sun reflecting off the distant mountains, the heat, the slight breeze...

it's probably the second most coveted time slot of the entire day. it wasn't given to them out of disrespect. it will be nice to see them bumped up the schedule if they play but to imply they were given a bad set time in 09, hell no they were not.

personally i'd rather see 1-5 threads per band like the old days than 10+ "wishlist" type threads with 500+ pages. it's a forum not a chat room. i'm not going to wade through 500 pages just to see "that band was confirmed back on page 267 bruh"

They did not play a sunset slot in 09. Know how I know? Cause they played a sunset slot in 06... forty minutes later than the one they played in 09.

RotationSlimWang
01-18-2013, 08:53 PM
Correction: more than an HOUR later than when they played in 09.

Gunz, he's not hurting the board at all. Their set in '09 was good, but a nighttime slot will indeed be better.

I don't mean to be that guy, but I really hope that last Friday's show (in addition to the Brooklyn show last year) doesn't mean that they've dropped Y Control from their setlists.

I saw them once at night when they headlined Lolla in 2009 and they were great. Looking forward to seeing them again.

Worthy of an evening set, if ever there was a band that deserved one.

KungFuJoe

Agreed. YYY's 2006 was way better than 2009. Looking forward to seeing them this year. Would be happy if they headlined FYF Fest.

hmmm thats odd, cause im watching this video of them playing 2009 and the sky is kinda dark, and i can see the lights on the stage, and the sun just happens to not be in the sky because it already set behind the fucking mountains. but i guess you're right

They played Bonnaroo earlier in the day than at Coachella in '09 and it was a much better set by all accounts. Night time sets are pretty much always better, but I think they just hadn't gotten into their groove of touring at that point.

They were the "afternoon headliner"(2nd biggest act of the day) at Bumbershoot in 2009 and were a bit better than Coachella 2009. I thinnk it rained a tiny bit during their set.

even though im not that into this band watching the webcast of their daytime/sunset set in '06 was a turning point for me

The sun STARTING to set during your second to last song is not a proper sunset slot.

I went and bought merch after the 09 set and the sun was still out. It set during MBV.

In '06 all I wanted to hear was to hear "Warrior". Of course, they played it right after I left to see Madonna at the Sahara and of course she was 20+ minutes late. Fail.

Her hair STARTING to turn blonde around her bangs and then blending to natural color at her roots is not a proper blonde.

could you point it out in that vid i posted? because there is a clear shot of the mountains the sun sets behind, and its not there for some reason. perhaps because it already set...

Looks plenty bright out still in that video to me. Set times for 2009 have YYYs playing from 6:15p-7:15p. You can argue the sun is beginning to set around 7:15p but I would hardly call that a sunset slot.

RotationSlimWang
01-23-2013, 06:46 PM
Seriously I don't know what the fuck you're talking about. We all know what timeslot is a sunset slot. YYYs were the fourth to last to play on the main that day. That is not sunset. Sunset is third to last, it takes place around 7-8. This isn't fucking rocket science.

01-23-2013, 09:21 PM
so i take that to mean you cant find the sun in the sky, because it's not there, because it already set.

fair enough :)

RotationSlimWang

No, the sun has set when there is no longer light in the sky. The sun is setting in the video you posted there, which was at the very end of their set. A "sunset slot" means that the sun starts setting at the beginning and finishes by the end more or less. Your video is not that.

This is actually a solid point. Bright Eyes singing Lua at sunset in the Coachella DVD is a sunset set.

But if you didn't have a great fucking time at the last YYY's coachella concert then you can go fuck yourself sideways with your inanely stupid shit.

that to me would be a dusk set. i suppose we'll have to wait until coachella stops using linear time for set times and switches to more obscure yet descriptive time slots before we can agree on anything

The 09 performance wasn't AMAZING. It was totally hot, and the songs were pretty standard. I'm hoping they get a dusk set on the outdoor similar to the last Crystal Castles spot. That was just a perfect time of day to kick off to me. That magic time of night when what you hear and see is amplified due to the absence of desert sun. Also can't wait to see what Karen O decides to wear

Maybe they would have been the Sunday headliner if the RHCP negotiations fell through. They might have had some materials ready and just forgot to change it in one place.
