Yeah Joe, me too! I think its the girl, and the edginess. Are you going to see them?
As long as it doesn't interfere with something else I'd like to see more, which I suppect happens all too often. This is my first time attending.
I'm still familiarizing myself with most of the bands, so here is a partial list:
Echo & the Bunnymen
Them Crooked Vultures
As Tall As Lions
Faith No More
Band of Skulls
Florence + the Machine
The Big Pink
Yo La Tengo
Schedule conflicts can be a problem. Ultimatly they teach you about whats most important to you. I like your choices Joe. I'll keep an eye out for you at some of these sets. Come by the Fab40+ meet-up on friday evening and get to know the Fab40+ Team, then you'll have friends every where you go.
The Specials (I have wanted to see them for over 20 years!), The Dead Weather, TCV, Old Crow Medicine Show, King Khan and his Shrines, Deer Tick, Frank Turner...just to name a few.
Curious to see Echo and the Bunnymen and PIL since I saw them back in the 80's!
Faith No More, PIL, Gary Numan, Gorillaz, Muse, MGMT,Orbital, Deadmou5, Kaskade, LCD, Lucero.
Others that I have interest in, but not as much as before mentioned:
The 80's bands I want to see because my parents wouldn't let me at the time.
Gosh! How could I forget Echo and the Specials? I like New Order ( I love White Lies because the remind me of Joy Division), but I have to give a listen to Bad Luitenant.(sp?)
If you like White Lies, try Bad Veins. Also, check out Bad Lt. at Coachella, of the member might look familiar.
I have not made it through the list of bands yet. I need to get back to that. So far, the bands I will be seeing (please no conflicts):
Them Crooked Vultures, Public Image Ltd. , the Specials, Fever Ray, Echo and the Bunnymen, Hockey, As Tall as Lions, Muse, The Dead Weather, Devo, Porcupine Tree, Gorillaz, Gary Numan,
Thanks for the recommend on Bad Veins. I did check out Bad lieutenant. He's put a bit of weight on since New Order but other than that, hasn't changed much.
I had forgotten about the Ravonettes too!
I'm still checking out bands as well. Been busy this weekend w/ family.
