I'd be happy with just Roky. Loved his FYF set.
Done and done.
So, The Replacements are your 80's reunion, S-K the 90's reunion, Outkast the 00's. Throw in a 70 year old that rarely does concerts, a few French guys and a folk band that says "hey" a lot, and...
Probably whenever Brent Musburger interviews him again.
Yeah, I would think that having a recent tour that included several baseball, football and futbol stadia would lead to headliner status. That and the fact that, you know, he's a Beatle.
Soooo, Macca put out a new album and did a massive tour but did not stop in LA (unless I was really asleep at the wheel). I'm not sure if I could handle a Macca/AF Fri-Sat headliner back-to-back.
I hope you're right, though I don't think Dawes would play two days :winkiss
I thought 2009 was a pretty rousing set. I would welcome them back.
I loved the Derrick Rose jersey with the jock strap at FYF this year.
I see what you did there.
Well, it's an album and an EP, and they played two rousing sets at FYF the last two years, but hey, I'll compromise at "due."
Seeing as that so many acts can trace their roots back to them, they'd be a natural. I would die for a 7.00 pm Friday set in a tent.
Orwells are way overdue. Rockin 5.00 set in the Mojave on Saturday.
Sir Douglas Quintet
Charo (Playing in Cabazon on 12/13, so radius clause issues)
Well, we had "Red Hot Chili Peppers," which was 20 spaces. "Kanye West + The Strokes" took 24, which is apparently the font limit. Nine Inch Nails would be 13. With a space, we could get one more...
Saw them (ABC) at an 80's Night at the Bowl a while back with Human League and Psych Furs. Lead singer bitched about the time limits on his set. Doesn't sound like a good mix for Coachella, though...
They seem an ideal candidate for the "Resucitated LA 80's club scene band" for 2014, following the Three O'Clock and fIREHOSE the last couple of years. They're even playing a show in December.
GV did not buy the polo fields. It is still in the hands of the family that has owned the property for years.
I saw them for the first time and wasn't totally familiar with their material. They didn't do a whole lot for me, though it was certainly listenable. I used the time to sit back, listen and take a...
For whatever reason, I didn't see it posted. May have been user error on my part.
Does anyone have anything remotely resembling a Deerhunter setlist? I really liked the set but I'm having trouble recalling what they played. Thanks.
Caught Dick Dale last Friday at Malibu Inn. He's 76 and started singing Ring of Fire during Jackson, but the dude can still play that axe. Great to finally see a true legend.
I was near lost and found during the first three songs of MBV and I couldn't hear a word anyone was saying.
I only went to the Sunday comedy. Matt Dwyer's set was almost verbatim from last year, but still funny. Funchess and Fairbanks ("Daddy needs to go number 3") were very good and I liked the...
Aye, there's the irony. Those that were stolen were from pockets or purses. My son had his phone out taking video of the whole ladder thing and he still has his phone.
Ding! Ding! Yawned through MGMT's first two songs (seriously, was that a grasshopper or the bugs from Starship Troopers?) and saw all of LSF.
I have to say that this was just a superb festival, Saturday especially. I arrived at 2.30 and moved from stage to stage and not pausing until Charles Bradley finished. Great sets all the way...
Maybe it was an organized band of Jack-offs, who knows. For the last song, Tim of Les Savy Fav (and what a crazy F*ck that guy is) laid an extension ladder out over the crowd and sat on it while the...
Some jack-off stole my phone and phones of about 10 others right at the end of Les Savy Fav. If you are one of these people who had yours stolen, please PM me. If you're the jack-off that stole my...
Sooo, MGMT or Les Savy Fav?
Last year there was this over-officious jerk (quoting Marv Levy) of a "lady" apparently in charge and telling people they couldn't bring in even regular Jansport back packs. Thankfully, we ducked...
All right, point taken. On to the music. Breeders or Toro Y Moi?
Am I the only one who thinks the stage names are disappointing and just plain silly (and not a good silly, either). They promised a show starting with "S" and so I was hoping to catch Deerhunter at...
Really bummed about this. I was looking forward to seeing them most. Sam broke his tib/fib, which is a pretty nasty injury. He won't be performing anytime soon.
Holy shit, that Macca setlist is unbelievable. Tried to make it up for just Friday but real life got in the way. Plus, the Friday top acts were a bit underwhelming but it would've been worth it to...
I think we need to continue this discussion over a beer or two next year. I'd throw Murmur, Boy, Los Angeles, Avalon, Ghosts in the Machine, How Will the Wolf Survive, Skylarking, Pretenders I into...
Haven't seen them for 25 years. They put out the best album of the 80's (Tim). I'll take a "truncated" set (As long as they play The Ledge, Lay It Down Clown and Here Comes a Regular, of course).
Dare I say that I would freak out if this happened
2011 was better, though this was still good. They've been playing so many shows that they can do it on auto-pilot, so it wasn't totally fresh.
From people that I've talked to, my best guess is that they will expand out to the edge of 51st and Monroe.
No, you would welcome it. While everyone is watching JT, you would be five-deep at a much better show in a tent.
Shuttle passes were pretty cheap on the secondary market so I wouldn't worry.
I think you're onto something. The underwhelming headliners (as far as buzz) gave a lot of people pause this time around. Fine with me. Maybe they'll shell out more for talent or maybe the bros...
Friday headliner. Put some "hot" EDM in the Sahara and us old 80's new wavers will have the run of the place.
That's more or less what I figured. Thanks for the illumination.
