Dl their live record. It is fantastic. Just imagine a stripped down version of that, and you have Acoustic Mainlines.
Hmmm... Yeah, well I just find it strange I hadn't heard of them whatsoever, not even in conversation, till I came on this board.
no thanks to an acoustic "stripped down" show.
I want big sonic electric noise. At least this solves some potential conflicts.
It's raining, I'm not walking a mile to get to campus, dammit.
So, Here you go.
The sound quality is really good on this one, and the setlist is stellar. You'll get an idea for what the Acoustic Mainlines shows sound like.
Thanks for the link! and also, i realize it was you who did Spiritualized in the youngins guide thread...so thanks for that too...
last year the poster just said 'Soulwax' when it was first posted. the words 'Nite Versions' were added in later. this could be the same.
I'd also suggest them playing the hollywood bowl with the LA philharmonic, if I thought they could play a venue that big in this country. but they can't. I think they'd be awesome with an orchestra though.
What stage does everyone think Spiritualized are goint to play on? Mainstage before Love and Rockets, MMJ and Roger Waters? Or the outdoor theatre, likely conflicting with either Love and Rockets, MMJ and/or Roger Waters?
but who knows. my stage predictions are often way off.
please. no conflict with Roger Waters. he and Spiritualized are the biggest draws for me on sunday. I couldn't make it to the acoustic mainlines tour. I don't want to miss it again. please. no conflict...
when will the microcommunity let us pick our favorites for this year? they use that data to try and avoid conflicts sometimes...
I think it will be:
Spiritualized (sunset) --> My Morning Jacket --> Roger Waters
Metric (sunset) --> Love & Rockets --> The Streets (opposite RW)
That or he might be in the Mojave mid-day.
I agree with you, Bryan, but I think that MMJ is going to be on before Roger Waters because their styles mesh better together...
Damnit, I hate when the precedent sets this shit up...
Okay, swap MMJ and L&R, and that's how I think it'll end up.
Wouldn't The Streets make sense to close the Gobi?

i'm even more bummed that it looks like the stars are aligning for the new festival to get radiohead, mbv, and spiritualized electric.
on the upside....it's another chance to see jason with the hottest backing band since robert palmer's addicted to love.
Anyway, Metric played a midday Sahara set in '06, so they've gotta be moving up to a later Outdoor Theatre or Mainstage show. MMJ played Sunset Outdoor last time, so they'll inevitably be before RW. I guess I'm just really hoping The Streets plays a midday tent, Metric plays the mainstage earlier, and then Spiritualized-->MMJ-->RW.
Ugh. Sunday's going to break my heart, I can just feel it.
also, we can totally re-think our strategies here:
Spritualized has been moved to Saturday!
from their official website:
also, Electric Mainlines as early as may!25.01.08 | April Acoustic Mainlines USA

and I want to see the ® by their name on the poster.
