    Default Can we get Bleu to play in 08?

    I think Redhead and LEO are a couple of the best albums of the 00's, and he has a new one ready to go.
    Based in Boston, he rarely get out west.
    Coachella would be prefiect... for him and for me!

    As I thought... no one here knows Bleu.
    Well you should!
    I challenge any and all to check out Redhead album and then say if Bleu should play in 08.

    After that check out Blizzard of '05 album and the LEO album which has a supporting cast of Andy Sturmer (Jellyfish), Mike Viola (The Candy Butchers), Jason Scheff (Chicago), Steve Gorman (The Black Crowes), Matt Mahaffey (Self), John Fields (big-time pop-producer), Tony Goddess (pApAs fritAs), Hanson, Eric Barao (The Cautions), Scott Simons (The Argument), and Paula Kelley, among others

    So... I guess I'm not the only one here who doesn't care about who Bleu is...

    According to Wikipedia, says he has toured with John Mayer, Puffy Ami Yumi, Hanson, Guster and Toad The Wet Sprocket.

    Yeah, I think I'll pass...

    People always seen to forget these famous words from the who do you want to see blog on Coachella's myspace...they repost the same warning every year and yet people still recommend stuff that doesn't fit.

    See below for warning:


    ALSO, PLEASE KEEP IN MIND - THIS IS COACHELLA, not exactly like other festivals so try to keep suggestions coachella-esk.

    Sorry, thought this was in part a wish-list thread.

    I've always thought Coachella was about diversity.
    I figure that if the following are "coachella-esk", then Bleu would be too:

    Arctic Monkeys, Jarvis Cocker, Nickel Creek, Rufus Wainwright, Fountains of Wayne, Jack's Mannequin, The New Pornographers, Peter Bjorn and John, Travis, Crowded House, The Feeling, Happy Mondays, The Kooks, Tapes 'n Tapes, Cat Power, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Colette, Matt Costa, The Like, My Morning Jacket, TV on the Radio, The Zutons, The Go! Team, The Magic Numbers, Metric, Ted Leo and the Pharmacists, Mercury Rev, Razorlight, The Raveonettes, Rilo Kiley, Spoon, Weezer, Wilco, British Sea Power, Pinback, Shout Out Louds, Sloan, Stereophonics, Tegan and Sara, Beck, Death Cab for Cutie, Belle & Sebastian, The Killers, Badly Drawn Boy, Ben Harper, Ben Kweller, Blur, The Donnas, Gomez, Hot Hot Heat, Ben Folds, Jack Johnson, The Polyphonic Spree, Rooney, Pete Yorn, Oasis.

    But that's just me.

    Honestly, I was joking!

    Sorry if I offended you..

    I had never actually heard of Bleu before you mentioned it. I went to his myspace page and listened to his tracks.

    I see he is playing at the Hotel Cafe in January.

    Honestly, they post that every year. I think it's because people get on there and say really outlandish acts that should play coachella and it's hard for them to sort through it all so it's a small filter.

    "Coachella-esk?" Phonetics will never steer you wrong.

    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.

    Oh man, that was a hilarious scene in old school when the old guy died when the girls took their tops off.

    Coachella esque is a good aim.

    That's why I don't understand when I go on the myspace account and people recommend things that are definitely not Coachella esque.

    Are you speaking of the MySpace account for Coachella? I don't know who the people are that post on that site but they do not have the vibe of this board.
