this is a minor conflict early on the day and i will probably leave any of them early for explosions in the sky. but which one is the better act?

The Kooks by far...

Inside In/Inside Out is one of the better albums of the last year.

The Kooks pale in comparison to Grizzly Bear. No brainer.

I've seen the Kooks live. They rock. I'm definately not missing them.


I hope everyone else wants to see Grizzly Bear though!

I am gonna be forced to watch the Kooks cause I wanna be as near to the front as possible for CSS. I serisouly do not like the guys voice.

Grizzly Bear. I do like the Kooks, however there is not much originality there. Grizzly Bear is one of a kind, there is no other artist on the Coachella lineup that sounds anything like them.

I saw Grizzly Bear open for TV on the Radio last year and they put on a great show. The songs off of Yellow House take a completely different sound live. I think I would go with Explosions in the Sky, but Grizzly Bear are definitely worth checking out.

i saw grizzly bear here in chicago in february and it was a damn good show. they're an amazing band imo and i think they're more worthwhile than the kooks. not sayin' i don't like the kooks but i think grizzly bear is much more worth your time.

Didn't know squat about either but ended up at Grizzly Bear and I was blown away. maybe it was The Warlock that played a part but none the less they were amazing. Still holding out for a live recording of their set.

All I know is that a Grizzly Bear could kick the crap out of a shark.

I'd say I regret missing Grizzly Bear... But I don't. I think the added material of Veckatimest makes their sets even better. The Kooks, on the other hand... Shouldn't have released a 2nd record.

You should learn to let go of pride and admit you made a huge mistake here. Nobody will think any less of you.

I didn't see either in 2007. But i will be making up for it in October when i will be seeing them twice. ;) I'm referring to Grizzly Bear, of course.

I wanted to see Konono no.1 so badly. actually, those 3 back to back sounds awesome.

Kooks? The actual conflict was Grizzly Bear vs Explosions in the Sky. That sucked. If Grizzly Bear's set had been a half hour earlier, it wouldn't have been an issue. Well, those 10 minutes or so I saw were great.

Grizzly's Coachella set didn't do a lot for me. I guess it was too mellow for what I needed in the middle of the hot day like that. But the Wiltern show recently was in a whole different class, maybe because I knew more than The Knife that time. That was one of my favorite gigs of the year so far.

I saw the Kooks at BFD 2008 and they are totally cheesy.

I have seen Grizzly Bear 3 times and not by choice. I don't like them and I don't get their hype, but I would still choose them over the Kooks.

every time I see this thread, I envision the Kooks being ravaged by an actual grizzly bear and it makes me laugh

Yeah, that's pretty funny because it wouldn't be nearly as brutal as a kook being mauled by a silverback gorilla.

Grizzly Bear was bland in 2007.

I don't give a fuck about the Kooks.

MP...that phone message you have in your signature is slightly disturbing

MissingPerson

I know.

It's possibly the bleakest thing I've heard in the last year, and I can't quite shake it.

Imagine calling up your favourite band to tell them you are absolutely profoundly unhappy with your life?

Still though, The Kooks.

hopefully his next call was to a suicide prevention hotline...

sorry, Kooks

Maybe we could get the guy to phone up The Kooks and bleak them out so much they kill themselves.

different subject for a moment, just this morning, my daughter asked me if she could borrow all of my Arcade Fire and Radiohead to put on her Ipod...it was a proud parental moment, i must admit

There was tension for the first half of that sentence when I thought "The Kooks" were going to be at the end of it, but it all worked out okay in the end.

Kudos to you and your awesome audio parenting.
