Thread: 3 acts you really hope play this year

  1. #1

    Default 3 acts you really hope play this year

    im just interested in who everyone wants to play and there are far too many threads on the old board! maybe not super headliner groups just ones you would love to see

    for me its:

    Arcade Fire
    i really love funeral and their new stuff sounds really good, plus they put on an amazing live show.

    Soulwax (nite versions)
    i saw these guys before in a tent and it was one of the most intense, amazing musical experiences ever. they woud make a brilliant sahara headliner.

    MEW
    ever since i heard and the glass handed kites i have been addicted to them, i imagine they would put on an incredible show too.

    anyway, thats my two cents, whats yours

    The Shins: They've come through a couple of times over the years. This would be an ideal place and environment to see them.

    Morrissey: He would be a great presesnce on the main stage.

    Paul Weller: Coachella is the place for surprises and reunions. Not only would it be great to see Paul but even better if they had a Jam reunion.
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    nice pick with Soulwax! I would like to see them alot too!

    but here are mine:

    The Chemical Brothers: Im a super fanboy whos never seen them live, new album out sometime this year.

    Portishead: A fantasic combination of hip hop, jazz, and blues. Their music is so good its creepy.

    A Tribe Called Quest: My favorite Hip Hop group, who I regret missing play live this past September. We got the Jazz, We got the Jazz.

    Rage Against The Machine (I know thats 4) got into them after their breakup, a reunion I would love to see.

    I think electronic acts returning every couple of years isnt such a bad thing. The tough one is getting good electronic headliners because the rest sort themselves out usually.

    The National
    The Hold Steady (but they're playing in Baltimore in March, so I can catch them then)
    and I liked the Portishead and A Tribe Called Quest mentions above, but I'll throw in Electric President to be different (unless a Talking Heads reunion was somehow possible, which it isn't)

    One act that I can totaly see playing at coachella would most deffinitly be Murder By Death. Their whole old west desert theme would fit in with the fest.

    I (almost) don't even care who plays. There is always someone I've never heard that blows me away and makes the entire trip worth it.

    excellent suggestions knate, and I'm with you on the not caring part... it's not that I don't "care" it's more like, I trust GV to put something new in front of me that will blow my mind
