    Default Boards of Canada live

    Has anyone seen Boards of Canada live? How are there shows? What songs do they usually play. I'm praying to god that they'll be at next years coachella.

    I don't think there's too many BOC fans on here. There's not really a big demand for them at Coachella.

    BoC have played about 10 live shows, 3 of which were recorded and are available if you know where to look. They've never played in the US. But from their live recordings I have, their lives shows are a little more upbeat than the albums, but also a lot more imperfect as well.

    doesnt BoC call their live shows "listening sessions"? I remember reading somewhere and seeing pictures of one of them taking place, in a church if I remember correctly.

    I have a feeling it depends on what you're expecting and what you're standards are. It'd be very interesting to see how a live BoC show works.

    I was just joking, kind of being sarcastic.
    I was just referencing what people are saying in the Daft Punk thread right now. Obviously, they are joking as well.

    there is no demand for BOC? What the hell are you talking about. BOC is one of the top electronic groups in the world, and I think most of the "coachella crowd" would agree with me on that.

    Now, I would say there is a very big demand for them at Coachella, but are they that well known world wide? I seriously don't know, it's a question.

    Those are from a listening party for when Geogaddi was being released. They have live shows. But like menik said, 10.
