Holy Ghost was $125 at Indy with open bar for NYE.
If I recall, Holy Ghost also added a 12/30 show for a more reasonable price. Hopefully cut copy does the same.
Agreed, though based on his billing it seems like he'll end up either early or on the Tunnel Stage. I could see him switching with The Growlers, or Banks switching to Tunnel and he moves up there.
How predictable are the set times for this? Anyone who's been want to take a crack at it? Looking at the last two years it seems like the top three names play the Bridge Stage each day, and there's...
I don't terribly mind the cheap marketing ploy of the DJ set if it involves free admission. Sounds fun indeed.
Looking over Ryan Adams's recent setlists, looks like he's largely ignoring his earlier stuff (aside from Come Pick Me Up and Sweet Carolina). Bummer, but still psyched for his set.
Wow. Guess I'm not going to that one. Glad I saw his set at Coachella.
Damn, Sun Kil Moon. I'm so, so excited for this lineup.
So this will be the first year I make it to Friday of HSB.
Feels unlikely to me, but maybe the DBT's have a bigger following than I realize? Haven't decided if I want to go to one of those yet, so I hope I've got some time to decide.
Someone once gave me a free VIP parking pass on my way in. Leaving was a breeze. Not sure how much it costs, but my one time in the normal lots was perhaps the worst experience I've ever had getting...
Awesome. His output's been inconsistent for awhile, but I've never had a chance to see Ryan Adams.
I'm not clear if Conor Oberst plays every year, but he's in Portland on 10/1 and LA on 10/5,...
Any idea when night shows get announced? (There are night shows for this, yes?)
Zedd, absolutely. Alt-J, TVOTR, and Janelle Monae are all bigger than Washed Out, Banks, and Jungle though, at least based on the SF venues they've played.
(I have no idea how popular the New...
That would be a very stacked Sunday.
Didn't the strokes sell out Madison square garden in 2011?
Oh shit. Janelle Monae, too. Yeah, I'm into this.
I'm also psyched that Darkside isn't there; I don't want to see them in a late afternoon set or something. Wish Belle & Sebastian were there though, since I'm not sure I'd see them on their own, but...
I, for one, welcome the opportunity to see Outkast not suck, as they've apparently been good since that Weekend 1 set. Massive Attack, alt-J, TVOTR, New Pornographers, Washed Out, St. Lucia, MO,...
If legit, that's great news. She was phenomenal at Rickshaw a few weeks back.
I'd also bet a frozen lemonade* that if Massive Attack plays, they're not a headliner. Would say the same for Belle & Sebastian, though that seems more obvious.
*or TI equivalent of frozen...
Since when is Frank Ocean a rap artist? I think he could go either day, though, and would fit.
How do we get these guys out of Asia and over to Coachella? Really digging this.
There's no chance that's real, right? First Aid Kit's playing the Fox in Oakland this fall, they're bigger than many if not most of the bands listed on that lineup.
But if it is real? Take all of...
They're also playing First City, which feels close enough that I'd ruled them out of TI already.
Anyone have advice on renting a house for this? There don't seem to be many/any options on AirBNB, and VRBO's a bit limited as well. I expected to see more houses out there; just curious if there's...
The War On Drugs @ The Fillmore, October 5

Beck, AFP, and LCD all seem like they're on the same level -- first subheadliner scale at Coachella. Same with the xx. It does seem like headliners have been getting bigger the last couple years, but...
That's from the Fun Fun Fun fest thread, but I think it makes Bo Ningen a strong possibility for Treasure Island. That'd be cool.
Wow, I'm all about this lineup.
SHN is the city's main theatre series. Ticketing depends on the show - for big ticket items like Book of Mormon, you usually have to get a series to get a ticket (i.e. you have to buy tickets for...
Exactly. It's almost like they're testing everything to see what the reactions are and decide what direction to go in with future lineups. Wouldn't actually shock me if they became a more country...
You do know Coachella took a year off after its unsuccessful first year, right?
Not every festival will succeed. All Points West didn't make it, and that was a Goldenvoice fest. Napa has...
I guess FTP's a bit lower billed than I realized at some of these fests. Maybe they can't headline yet, which is fine by me.
Man, reading through last year's TI lineup again makes me sad all over again for the likelihood that this year's lineup will pale in comparison.
I'd guess Foster the People headlines one day,...
Andrew Bird's got a tour ending September 21 at the Hollywood Bowl, no SF date scheduled. That seems plausible. Bit of a gap between that and TI though.
Definitely glad I got the Weekend 1 setlist, which was just about perfect for me. Not bad W2, but W1 was divine.
Was this on the webcast or AXS? Is there a good video of it anywhere?
Mad Decent Block Party lineup is out:
Cashmere Cat :: Dillon Francis
Diplo :: Fatboy Slim
Flosstradamus :: STRFKR
Yep, managed to get to the front rail for that one, it was awesome. I do miss hearing some of those Neon Bible tracks.
People who spent all weekend last year and all weekend this year waiting for Daft Punk to make an appearance and then bitching when they didn't are the real twats here. Cheers to Win for calling them...
It threw me off a bit this year. I think in part because two of three headliners got cut off (which feels more notable than a mid-day act getting cut off, and other headliners have gone long in the...
Looking for some advice on the Disclosure show at the Greek tomorrow. It'll be my second time at the Greek; the first, I arrived late during the opener and wound up in standing room only. I'm looking...
Now that is a great idea.
There were what, 60-65k people total that attended each day in 2007? I think Calvin Harris drew a bigger crowd than the entirety of the 2007 festival crowd.
I propose that the problem was not the EDM acts booked, but the rest of the acts. I'd imagine that the crowd we're all describing are also fans of Lorde, Lana Del Rey, Foster the People, Chvrches,...
I've never seen more kids at coachella than this year (by kids, I mean teenagers), and I think the crowd sizes reflect that. Classic acts and most rock acts were sparsely attended; any EDM or...
