Thread: Bands That Make Sense

    Default Bands That Make Sense

    So this is just a bunch of random thoughts, based mostly on who is releasing albums next year and who could possibly be reuniting and who are big buzz bands now that haven't played Coachella yet.

    New Albums:

    R.E.M. - They've got a new album coming out in the Spring and have never played Coachella. They seem like a perfect fit as one of the headliners.

    The B-52s - They're not headliner material, but could definitely find themselves on the second line of the poster. They're releasing their first album since the early 90s in February.

    Morrissey - He's got a greatest hits album coming out in the Spring and a new album coming out in the summer/fall, and he's already said there will be a massive tour starting in the Spring. Like the B-52s, he's not a headliner, but a very strong second-line act.

    Dave Gahan - He just released an album a few weeks ago, and though it'll be about 6 months between the album's release and Coachella, it's still possible. I think it really depends if he's still touring in support of it in April.

    Other upcoming album releases:
    Wolf Parade
    Goldfrapp
    Magnetic Fields
    The Mars Volta
    British Sea Power
    Cat Power
    Hot Chip (I wonder if they'd play two straight years)

    Bands Getting Buzzed About Who Didn't Play Last Year:

    Simian Mobile Disco - A perfect fit for the Sahara.
    Battles
    Beirut
    Dan Deacon
    Editors
    Feist
    The Go! Team
    Iron & Wine
    Jens Lekman
    Les Savy Fav
    M.I.A.
    The National
    Okkervil River
    Patrick Wolf
    The Shout Out Louds
    Spoon
    Stars
    Tegan & Sara
    Voxtrot

    Reunion Possibilities:
    The Verve
    Blur
    The Stone Roses

    R.E.M. will not be at coachella. Coachella headliners should not be putting people to sleep.
    Superfan will be in front of the Fonda masturbating furiously to a photo of him taking a photo of a band. Set is from 8:05 to approximately 8:05:15. Guest list only.

    I saw R.E.M. in 2003 and was absolutely blown away by their live show. I didn't know what to expect, but they played a TON of older stuff (like from Document and earlier), and no one is sleeping through that. Unless they decide to only play material from their last few albums, I promise that they would rock Coachella.

    Dan Deacon...jeezus christo...

    Battles, The National, SMD, Les Savy Fav, The Verve...probably

    I'd say Broken Social Scene is more likely rather than just Feist

    Yeah, that's actually a good point, didn't think of them, but they're actually quite likely. Btw, on Dan Deacon, I think I may have a skewed view of how big he actually is. I live in DC, and he's from Baltimore and everyone around here is obsessed with him, but I have no idea what sort of opinion the rest of the country has on him or if they even have one.

    major cities i'm pretty sure he has a big following. I personally just think he's extremely bad.

    In terms of bands buzzed about last year, you forgot the Shins.

    I agree with the idea of Morrissey.
    He played in '99 so why not again...but he should have a high spot.

    And I agree with Mars Volta, Okkervill River and Beirut

    Sweet. This is turning into another thread about who we want to play. I thought the other 40 weren't enough.

    Dave Gahan is a no; DM is supposedly going back into the studio at the beginning of the year.

    Why a No? I think they need to come back to Coachella. Their '06 show was all fucked up with instrument problems

    I think Battles is a given for next year.

    With Mars Voltas new album out in January, they have a good chance of being there.

    The Prodigy is a must next year though.

    wolf parade is a no because handsome furs and sunset rubdown should play instead.

    Kanye West is in Australia in late February and is touring the UK right now until December and only has had a handful of dates in the US. So his big US tour should be hitting full swing in the spring. Probably will hit Asia before or after Australia so he should be starting his US Tour in March/April.

    I like Radiohead. I enjoy the live show. They do a great job of drawing people away from smaller acts at the same time when they play Coachella. But it has only been 4 years. I know other bands have played and replayed within that timeframe, but every year can't be Radioheadfest in the Desert. And every year people want it to be.

    True... but realisticaly, who else could Coachella grab for next year? With a new album out and them planning on starting a tour around that time... Coachella seems perfect for them.
    Also, I have never seen Radiohead. And since there is a 100% chance I will be at Coachella next year... I would love to have Radiohead on the line up.

    But honestly, as long as Coldplay or Smashing Pumpkins aren't headlining... I will be fine.
