    Default Where Boardies Smart Enough To Hide In The Lounge Recommend 2008 Bands

    So far, as many others have said, I've got Dan Le Sac on my must see list. As Gabe put it brilliantly: like Ali G but funnier [and musically talented]. I'm assuming he was referring to Ali G specifically, not Sasha Baron Cohen in general, 'cause I agree about Ali being the least funny of his characters.

    Also, MGMT turns out to be pretty fucking good. I'm going to see them this Saturday somewhere in LA, forget where.

    Nothing resembling pizza will be found anywhere on the polo fields. You know this, Nando--you're from the place where food is actually good.

    I am seeing MGMT with Yeasayer and The Laughing tonight. As an added bonus Lupe Fiasco is also playing on the outdoor stage.

    I know I really didn't recommend any bands....wait you might like,

    The White Ghost Shivers

    or

    Santogold is wicked.

    I love Cut Copy too, but for some reason I don't think they'd be your thing LGM.

    Pendulum's awesome.



    I've got some learning to do myself.

    I m not sure if they're necessarily suggestions but they are bands that I am definitely looking forward to:

    Roger Waters doing Dark Side of the Moon - while I'd prefer it be Gilmour, I have many friends that have seen him on his solo tour do this and they have said its amazing.

    Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings
    Dredg
    Manchester Orchestra
    Mum
    Little Brother
    I am going to get so blown to Cypress Hill while they play.

    No one go see Cafe Tacvba. They are a shit band and they are sucky live.





    this has nothing to do with my desire for front row spot.

    If we can, and I should have tried to do this myself in the first post, but let's include links if we're feeling up to it. Embedded Youtubes always preferable, pick whatever you think is the best example to sell us on the band.

    Let's be helpful to each other, because there's a whole board of moron zombies in those other sections. We have to stick together or they will eat our brains.

    Black Mountain. Has anyone heard these guys? I am enjoying them quite a bit.
    Carbon/Silicon. Mick Jones' band. Must see.
    The Bees. I had never even heard of them until yesterday. I now love em.
    John Butler Trio. Acoustic guitar, banjo and a stand up bass. Me like.

    I have yet to listen to MGMT, but I will certainly do so.

    Every year, I make a giant spreadsheet with all of the bands listed...I go through and mark each one as "must see" "will see (barring conflicts)", and "don't bother". The ones I'm not familiar with, I do research on to see if I like what I hear and then make my decision.

    In any case, one that I'm really looking forward to is Les Savy Fav. Oh, and Flogging Molly. The only thing that will suck about Flogging Molly is not being able to stand on a table and sway with a pint of Guinness while listening to them.

    I cannot stress enough how people should not miss Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings. The show I saw was the best in 07. Better than anything I saw at Coachella or otherwise. I hope she is in the Mojave.

    The Bees are also fantastic and I am very excited for their inevitable 1:30 in the afternoon at the Outdoor Theater slot. I'll be one of the 300 people watching them, because they rock.

    Youtube idea is a good one.

    Youtubes are always preferable, yes. I think we can all agree on that.

    the only that will suck about flogging molly is the fact that they are playing.

    Also, everyone should watch The Streets, who put on a great live show and have a couple fantastic albums to their name.

    I didn't realize until late last night the Ghostland weren't on the line up. I thought they were basically a lock.
