No, neither is Explosions in the Sky. But Air at night on the Outdoor Theater will be pretty amazing. Dunno about Explosions during the day...pretty big fuck up

Explosions should be at night, even in Mojave at night wouldve pleased me. Damien and Placebo shouldve switched too.

They kinda blew it by having Explosions in the SKy NOT Play at sunset.

04-23-2007, 11:54 PM
yeah I was kind of expecting an epic sunset show from Damien...but I'm happy with Placebo at sunset and Damien at night

agreed...that and Rage vs. VNV vs. Spank Rock are the biggest fuck ups in my opinion

I voted Arcade Fire.. and over half of everyone else.

RockStr4Life
04-23-2007, 11:58 PM
yeah Arcade Fire and Sigur Ros have been the best sunset acts I have seen...but I've only been going since 2005

yeah despite some sound problems Sigur Ros was epic last year. Wilco was a pretty good sunset act in 05.

I think the only reason I didn't vote for Arcade Fire is because I have already seen them at sunset. I'm definetly not surprised that they are owning this poll though. Just really stoked for Placebo at sunset.

Arcade Fire getting 70 minutes is a very great thing.

I voted for Jesus and Mary Chain just because my wife Scarlett Johansen is rummored to be performing with them. But I'll be watching Arcade Fire for sure.

I'm happy Explosions are not at sunset. They probably would have conflicted with CSS or something.

joppy-slow
04-24-2007, 07:45 AM
Peaches is just going to be epic during sunset.. not..

GV blew it on the sunset picks.... hence the reason why Arcade Fire is leading the poll by landslide and no one else gives a fuq about the others..

Thank God they aren't. I never would have imagined they would play the main stage so early in the day, but I'm so glad they are. It works out perfectly, because I was afraid they would conflict with Air, Placebo, or Rage.

Jesus and Mary Chain is just so perfect for sunset.

The sun will already be set by the time Arcade Fire comes on--they were awesome last time at sunset so I voted for them anyway but I really think it will be The Decemberists at Outdoor theatre playing as the sun goes down that will be the greatest!

04-25-2007, 08:45 PM
best set that was at coachella during sunset i say goes to the Pixies in 04
but this year i would have thought EITS but i guess arcade fire or !!!

joebizz
04-26-2007, 09:34 AM
I'm way happy they scheduled air when they did, only because they go on exactly when crowded house are over on the main, and pretty much get the whole set, minus 15 minutes, without the inevitable cross-over audio from the main stage. Sweet!

I voted for willie, but I also want to watch arcade fire, and placebo.


Nothing can conmpare to Cafe Tacvba two years ago, it was one of the best concert experience ever, up there with daft punk.

It was Willie Nelson.
And AF played AFTER dark.

If only Explosions played near sunset, they would probably win. And yeah who wouldve thought Arcade Fire wouldnt win this poll? I saw 5 of the "sunset" acts and yeah they were all sweet.

R. Kelly should go on weather.com to check sunset times and coordinate his show so that the midget comes out of the cabinet at exactly 7:37 pm (or whenever), and then... LIGHTS!

But yeah, seriously, the Arcade Fire fit the time frame very well.

Arctic Monkeys playing "When The Sun Goes Down" just as the sun was, indeed, going down, was pretty well coordinated by the band and the Sun Gods I thought...

And anyone who voted for a band in a tent at sundown... -10 points.

The Marley family vibe is the perfect sunset soundtrack for me.

Jesus and Mary Chain is just so perfect for sunset.

Actually by the time Jesus and Mary Chain came on the sun was almost totally down, I looked at my pics, I'd have to say Arctic Monkeys were more the Sunset band last year. That being said, Jesus and Mary Chain was friggin' amazing! I saw them in 1990 at Universal Amp with NIN and I thought they were just as good last year as they were back then.

I revisited some YouTube vids of the sunset bands that I saw (Willie, Placebo, part of JAMC, part of Peaches, and Arcade Fire) and got some awesome flashbacks (and not so great, in the case of Peaches). And it reinforced that for me, Arcade Fire was the best, sunset as well as the wkend. And I know this clip isn't from sunset, but it's later from the same set. They were amazing last year.

We're talking about Arcade Fire's sunset show in '05 right? That shit was bonkers.

But definitely got topped by Sigur Ros in '06 at sundown. Sunsets fit with their music a whole lot better.

Far and away The Arcade Fire from 05. I mean I have been to 4 Coachellas now, 5 this year, and I can't list a single set that was better. Regardless of when the set was I think this one had to be the best. They don't do it with lasers, light shows, or anything like that. I have never seen that many people crowded around the outdoor theatre like it was that night in '05. The energy and performance that they put on was legendary and I'm not sure if I'll ever see that again.

JSam67
01-28-2008, 12:42 AM
All the choices up there were sunset acts from 2007, so I assumed we were talking about 2007 performances. Which is why I posted a clip from Arcade Fire 2007 and not 2005.

DITTO-- little bit stoney, sun going down, and their trademark humongo finish with instruments left on the final note, loudly buzzing and feeding back, as they walk off suddenly and triumphantly... i saw a lot of people very moved at that set
