Both of these statements are true. Letdown of the year.
It is a different situation, but an accommodation that can be made nonetheless.
Agreed that it didn't improve their set.
I am not one of those people.
Jeff Mangum solo may also have taken some hype away from the Neutral Milk Hotel reunion. At the time, he was resurfacing after being MIA for like 10+ years. People who aren't that big on NMH can live...
I see your point, and Pavement is a bigger player in the same field as Neutral Milk. Postal Service slot oughta do it if they're playing main stage. I'd rather them play later on the Outdoor, though....
I can see Neutral Milk Hotel getting the Mazzy Star slot. In reality, I think they deserve the Pavement slot.
The horror of hearing Matt Bellamy shriek in that one song about the world ending.
Back when they played in 2010, he straight-up said in a 2009 interview, "We're playing Coachella next year." So hopefully you're right and they just got added to the speed-dial rotation. In any case,...
Pixies v. Neutral Milk Hotel v. TV on the Radio + Outkast v. The Knife = me murdering everyone. Unfortunately, the Outkast v. Knife conflict wouldn't be absurdly unrealistic.
They need a rendezvous, they need a rendezvous.
Also, I'm completely stealing this from some commenter on CoS. Kraftwerk is playing Mexico City in March. Haven't seen anyone mention this yet.
Maybe it's just stacked towards my personal biases.
There are way too many big subheadliners for this lineup to be realistic. But if you gave me Neutral Milk Hotel, Belle & Sebastian, OutKast, and the Knife (throw in Slowdive for good measure), I...
I saw Ray last year. He's so great. Unlike most of the other guys from his era, he didn't feel washed up at all. He actually seemed to have gotten wiser from his years and had great stories/insight...
Ugh. Damn you, Songkick.
I met the guys from Television the other night after their show at the Independent. Tried to scope out if they planned on returning to California next year. They gave an evasive, "I don't know, we'll...
I hope their FYF set is long enough. They'll need at least fifteen extra minutes to squeeze in a white noise jam.
I'd love to catch them in SF before FYF, but the acoustics of Bill Graham ruined ...
Macca, The Cure, Springsteen headlining;
Phoenix, Mumford & Sons, Vampire Weekend as Twin Peaks Headliners;
maybe NIN in Foo Fighters' headliner-turned-subheadliner spot.
Pipe dreams: Blur and...
Missing out this year because Blur and New Order are the only acts I'd want to see that I haven't seen before (and may never get the chance to). Watching the live feed, it didn't seem that awesome....
Aside from Sigur Ros, my next top three most desirable acts of the weekend all played at the same time Sat (Explosions, Big Boi, Grandaddy). Saw until ten minutes left in Explosions to run all the...
Wow. Congrats OSL 2012. Officially a sold-out festival. Please let this 2012 lineup be the standard to be kept.
Yes. You nailed it. Good work.
Well, I wouldn't be going just for that, but that's the White Stripes song I have most appreciated and I'll probably feel accomplished and ready to roll after hearing it live. I'm definitely familiar...
They should move New Order to Civic then because that shit sold out in a couple of hours. I did not see that coming and now I am going to have to scalp for a ticket once the hype somewhat dies down.
Never been to Bill Graham. That much bigger than Fox?
That's most likely what I was going to end up being drunk at.
You guys set on Friday? Between Zola Jesus and Father John Misty on Sat, I am going to be standing around getting drunk probably. Nothing dire for that 1.5 hour gap for me.
I still can't believe how low Franz is billed. Quite a stoop from subheadlining Coach in 2009. And they put on an awesome show.
That sounds fine. I was gonna run to check out Of Monsters and Men, but I probably won't need the entire forty-five minutes left in their set to "get it."
5:10 to 5:40 for Santigold and then 5:50 to whenever JW plays Seven Nation Army (probably end of set) is how I'm going to do it. I don't particularly care for JW, but I feel like I should see him...
How did Sunday sell out before Friday? Is everyone dying to see Jack White and Skrillex that badly? That's likely going to be my most conflict-free day in comparison to the other two. It's very...
FUCKING NEW ORDER!
Is that a possibility? That would be amazing, but the night shows have all been announced, yeah?
I find them all a little underwhelming this year for Fri and Sat: the only nights I'd be able to go...
Dylan's cheaper. It's 60 + fees for floor standing. Vincent and Byrne is 70 + 20 fees for sitting as far away as you can possibly get. I just didn't know how far away that would be in this particular...
Good Christ, $19 in extra fees for Byrne + St. Vincent?
Goodness did I find this thread way too late:
Is anyone gonna do one of the Bob Dylan/Mark Knopfler shows at Bill Graham? Presale is now. I absolutely must go but cannot talk any of my friends...
Sigur Ros could still easily close Twin Peaks. Sigur Ros vs. Metallica would actually be a really appropriate conflict. Norah Jones is very famous and less esoteric than Sigur Ros, so I can see her...
And David Cross, Chris Hardwick and Kristen Schaal (and Neil Patrick Harris if that's your thing).
Seriously, how has this fest not sold out. They are doing everything right this year.
Thank you, sir. You just made a sale.
Question: For the Shoreline show, where is the Paid Dues/36 Chambers Stage? Does everyone have equal access to it or are there pre-set limitations per Lower Bowl v. Upper Bowl v. Lawn tickets? The...
Worst name ever but incredibly fun live show. I hope they play.
Ah! It was playing last year on sat as well. We decided to not do it at the last minute. A chance at redemption!
OH HAI MARK
Even at Coachella I haven't been caught. The flask in the bag of pretzels is some serious OCD/paranoia in action, but they absolutely will not make you empty out a bag of pretzels.

Honorable mention to: Jeff Mangum, Girl Talk, Childish Gambino, At the Drive-In, Bon Iver, Snoop & Dre, Swedish House Mafia's lighting crew
I think the occasional thorough checks of the Coachella lines have given me a heightened sense of paranoia. Probably doesn't require that much work, but I like to play it safe at the entrance.
You have to have a pair of shoes in your bag and put the flask inside of your shoes (covering it with the socks). A Coachella-proof plan for years. Or you come in with a big bag of chips/pretzels and...
Yeah, I know it's a city thing, but it would be nice if more than 2-3 acts could play in the evening. I can't imagine seeing Explosions or MSTRKRFT during the day. Sadly, it will probably happen and...
Sigur ros playing during daylight? That's the worst idea in the world. Let Jack White, Beck and Foo do that shit. Save SG for twin peaks.
They were fine. I don't know what everyone was expecting. I thought Kid A was sweet. Everything else was pretty standard. and the king of limbs tracks sounded way better than on the album.
