    Re: 2013 Rare Acts That Shouldn't Be Missed

    The Three O'Clock haven't played in 25 years and I think they even posted somewhere in the forum looking for requests. They were one of the great LA Paisley-pop bands of the 80's, with Rain Parade...

    Perry?

    Is Perry Farrell going to play under some moniker or another this year?
  3. Re: Parking @ Coachella - Seriously, how long will it take...

    Every year they change it so be aware. Last year there was a lot more day parking north of the polo field than in years past. Getting out was easy, but getting in was hellish.

    Are you a man defined by your women, or a man defined by your experiences?

    I'm going to Coachella again, bitches!

    Worst lineup ever. SoCal d-bags by the dozen. Hot sweaty smelly hippies everywhere. Expensive shit beer and cocky-ass hipsters and random old men and frat boys. And TRAFFIC.

    I told everyone I'm...
  6. Best Coachella crowds ever? Lots of politeness...

    I've been going since '04 and this is the first year that I didn't get shoved, jostled, harrassed, kicked, or stepped on, not even once. I went up front several times, usually a sure place to get...

    Re: FEIST

    It was an epic lesson in rock and roll and women. Feist ruled the polo field. I didn't know much about her. I'd heard a couple songs and thought it'd just be a nice singer/songwriter set with a...

    Re: James

    First thing we saw at Coachella this year. We got there about 5 minutes into the set, and within 5 minutes more, my girlfriend turned to me and said "I can't believe I'm already having a moment!"...

    Re: What Act Surprised You the Most?

    Feist and Miike Snow.

    I knew a Feist song or two, but didn't really know much about her. Wow. I'm still looking for the words to describe it. One of the three best shows I've ever seen at...

    Re: Traffic?

    Thanks Claw. When you say "forever", what do you mean? I still have nightmares about the 4 hours it took me to get to the fest from Palm Springs in 2008, leaving the hotel at 2 PM. I haven't had a...

    ...Coachella is finally getting the Smiths reunion and they want to try to control the video bootlegs! They're giving Marr and Morrissey each $10 million, so they want their money's worth. Not sure...

    Traffic?

    Hope you all had a fantastic time on weekend one. I wish we'd have your weather on weekend two!

    How was traffic this year?
  15. SMITHS 2012! It's really happening this year!

    It's not a proper Coachella Rumors forum without a Smiths thread on page 1.

    Plus it's true this year. I've got sources.

    Tips on having fun in traffic?

    After camping last year, my friends roped me back to our hotel party at Desert Hot Springs. Which means lots of fun by the pool, and then some sort of clusterf--- to get in every day.

    So, besides...

    Will the free cigs be back?

    Anyone know if the Spirits tent (a/c and free smokes!) will be back?

    If I'm getting a free fix I don't need to stock up on the way in.

    Perry Farrell?

    Can anyone tell me, or make a reasonable guess, which of the bottom of the ticket acts is secretly Perry? Perry was awesome last year as himself in the tent. He's definitely en route to being the...

    THE SMITHS in 2011!!!

    Maybe this is why the setlist is being delayed. Paul's finally going to make the Coachella dream come true Saturday night, and they're not saying anything just to build the hype.

    Yeah, that tent was empty, which made it all the more amazing to see how much energy those guys put in to it. Looked like they thought they were playing the Rose Bowl or something. Several jumps,...

    but Electric Touch in 2009 may be the best thing I've ever seen at Coachella, and I'd never ever ever heard of them. Kind of like an awesome version of...
