    Default today is the day

    I first want to say its been a lot of fun hanging out here and trying to find out who's playing has been a lot of fun. aeg has done a good job holding on to the headliners and not having leaks. this makes me believe 2 things will happen. either the top tier headliners are very weak and they want to dazzle it up with a big announcement. or it will be very special

    scoop, I applaud your never-ending optimism and enthusiasm when surrounded by cynical pessimists. Very nice, very refreshing.

    I really think the news conference is to talk about the new festival. its their glory day not ours.
    However, I think Coachella will be good. It has to be better than the nightmare lineup I just awoke from.
    lets keep positive w/ low expectations!


    ....talking heads....

    not only the Coach East thing, but this goes out to all those that wondered whether Bonnaroo would try to steal Coachella's thunder.

    Look at all the past line ups. Has it ever sucked? Why would 08 be any different?

    I just want to say I called it that Coachella wasn't going to rush the lineup in defense to the Roo.

    I also want to say that when Talking Heads is confirmed, I called it way back.

    In all seriousness, there is no way that the lineup will suck. All we all need are 15-25 bands that we love/want to see/are intrigued to see and we'll be fine. And that happens every year. Some of the bands we're going to watch this year, we don't even know how much we like them yet, and thats one of the best parts about the experience is familiarizing with new music.
    Further, half of the experience is being there and half is the music. They've never dropped the ball on the music and they wont this year.

    As mentioned 1,000's of times before, this will be the first Coachella I will be unable to attend since 2004, HOWEVER, the lineup announcement excitement keeps me coming back to the board as I am careening towards 1,000 posts. Deep down, a lackluster lineup would probably soothe the burn of not being able to attend for me, but I am genuinely hoping for a stellar lineup for all of you fine people to enjoy in my stead. Except for Rap/Rock Is Life. I hope he fucking keels over. Wang in '08.

    Then don't go. Done.

    I think it's going to be a great line up as usual, I've been coming since '06 and haven't been let down so far.

    I'm also hoping to be very very suprised!
    So far there's only couple of Coachella's I missed out because of the lineup since 2002, so lets hope this one tops every other festival again!

    Yeah I'm keeping my expectations low. I don't want to be disappointed. I don't even care about headliners. I never see them anyway. There's usually a better act playing somwhere else at the exact same time.
