Been rolling all year. Let's see of it translates in the playoffs.
I'm in. Mainly because I want to crush Icedkeg again like in did Fantasy Baseball for the last 2 years. :)
Thanks. That's kind of what I was thinking.
Week 1 question. Start Russell Wilson or Romo? Start Colston or Rashad Jennings in my flex?
1) Slowdive- one of the greatest festival sets I've ever seen. Blew my mind. Still can't stop thinking about that set!!
2) The Strokes- loved the set list. Sound quality was outstanding on...
Couldn't agree more. Slowdive was the best set I've seen all year. Blew my mind!!
He killed it at Coachella. There was so many great choices. If we get half the variety they had there, we are in for a treat.
Spoon was excellent. Britt was in good spirits and you can tell by his comments that he was really excited to open for the Flaming Lips. The new stuff sounded great.
The Lips absolutely killed...
This. Also I'm really hoping we get their cover of Golden Path.
Where are these "fucking festivals"? All I ever end up seeing advertised are music and movie festivals.
Tickets purchased!! Green Velvet is outstanding.
Seems like too many top tier acts. How the fuck would they lay out the set times for that??
Alt-j tour dates look like they are a possibility. Let's hope!!
Hoping we get some spill over at Life Is Beautiful from this.
Seems like Pearl Jam is in play. Tour ends in Colorado on 10/22.
Yup. They even had the bears in the video dancing on the podium that Regine used during Oh Orpheus.
Let's meet up at the venue. Probably not gonna get there til around 7. Let me know a spot and I'll find you. Very excited for this show!!
I don't think so. The show starts at 8. They wouldn't mislead everybody and have them miss Failure. I think this going to be a bit of a variety show. Lots of guests, 5-10 song sets from each act...
Interesting set times for Saturday.
6:00 PM Front Plaza Gates Open
6:30 PM Doors to Seating Areas Open
8:00 PM Set One
9:15 PM Intermission
9:35 PM Set Two
No specific set times for any...
Two thumbs pointing at this guy!! So curious about how this is going to go down. Will there be guests? Who plays last? Will Maynard do the Nurse Who Loved Me with Failure? Will there be a cake?
I'll be there tomorrow night!! Can't wait. Should be an interesting set. Like the premise, we'll see if SMD can pull it off.
Had a blast chatting with you and dancing my ass off with the rest of your list at Arcade Fire. Perfect way to end the weekend!
I bought a sea salt with Carmel ribbons ice cream from salt and straw, then walked over and got a speedway stout to wash it down with. Best decision I made all weekend. So damn good.
It works our great for us "real" music fans to have the demographics like this. All of the e-tards stay in the Sahara and we get to move up close for a great spot without any issues. As for whether...
You can only get the good beers in the craft beer area. Every other spot is still just Heineken
Here's the best advice I can give from week one to week two. Bring a dust mask and goggles. Best move I've ever made. The rest of the people I stayed with are still hacking up dust bunnies two days...
1) Arcade Fire
2) Queens of the Stone Age
3) Jagwar Ma
4) Neutral Milk Hotel
HM- future Islands, Julian Casablancas, Pixies, GOAT, Replacements
Every set I saw was excellent...
The craft beer was everything I had hoped for and more!! Moving the do lab was brilliant. The new Gobi sounded great and was protected from soundboard and wind. Salt and Straw ice cream was the best...
So cool that even though it sells out all the time they still surprise us with these amazing late adds!! So glad I'm a two weeker way too many conflicts for one.
Since I trust your opinion more than most with this stuff. Who is the biggest must-see each day?
Yeah, I hope he realizes what a lucky little booger he is. Was great seeing you guys!! Didn't know it was your birthday :) Hopefully we can meet up for a beer at either weekend so I can buy you one...
What a spectacular set. Such a unique sound.
They were on fire that whole tour.
That is still the bootleg I listen to the most by them. Such a great show. Definetly in the top 3 TOOL shows I've ever been too.
Ok, I'm glad everybody got their passes, but please stop talking about the best kept secret on the planet. The more people that know the less chance it has of working. No more talk about the...
When are we drafting? Are the scoring categories changing at all? Last year was too heavy to the pitching side. It should be equal numbers of categories for hitting and pitching.
Man, every time a new festival lineup or headliners for a fest are released, It just shows what a great job Coachella did this year.
Gonna do Friday at irvine, then fyf. Makes it a three day festival weekend.
It's looking like GV must have had each headliner sign an exclusivity clause when it came to the big fests. All 3 are nowhere to be found.
They already had one that had to be replaced in the Beastie Boys. That being said, I think chances are good that it'll be Eminem or Kanye this year.
I'm calling Grudge, Eulogy, and D/R/T. The trilogy is a definite possibility because it's not very stressful on Maynard's vocals. Grudge and Eulogy he can use his voice box.
This has always been the biggest complaint I've had about Coachella and they finally did what needed to be done. Great food and craft beers make all the difference for a festival...
Wow. What a titanic waste of time. 60 acts in one weekend? So how many complete sets did you see? Do you actually care about the music? Or do you prefer to just have bragging rights for how many...
I approach it as one 6 day festival. I break it down based on who I'm going with each weekend and try to draw it up so I'm around my group for most of the time. If I have any must sees, I go see them...
You sir, are in for a treat.
Got SD tickets. LL 14 row 8. Should be a great view from there!! Now let the setlist speculation begin!!
Last tour they avoided LA too. I've heard they are in talks for a Hollywood Bowl show. But I'll believe that shit when it's official. It's so weird that they continue to avoid their home town.
