Thread: Having had a few days to get to know the line up: Thumbs up or Thumbs Down

  1. #1

    Smile Having had a few days to get to know the line up: Thumbs up or Thumbs Down

    I understand the initial disappointment everyone had when they saw the line up at first. I admit other than a few bands I was disappointed too. There are tons of other bands I hoped to see, but I actually have to thank GV for not giving them to me because in turn they have turned me onto a shit ton of new music that I haven't ever heard before. I spend a lot of my time finding new bands and music to listen to (more than I should) and they just gave me like 50 new bands that I seriously dig. Point being is that they arent screwing us one bit, infact in my mind I am getting more out of this than I would if I picked the lineup myself.

    So thanks GV for doing the leg work of finding new music for me!

    Yeah, had Dani not posted the lineup with links to their sites,I may have missed several acts that are now on my list of must see's. In fact, for the first time, I may be getting a taste of conflicts.
    Its like the Infinite Monkey Theorem, if you put X amount of monkeys in a room with a typewriter and ask them to give you Shakespeare 99% of them will fling their shit at you while the other 1% will masturbate in the corner.

    I couldn't quite bring myself to vote "radicalicious," so please accept my Thumbs Up instead.

    Yeah, I've listened to a lot of the unknown bands, like every year, and while there are a lot of great bands, it's still a big disappointment overall, which is the general consensus, anyway.

    At this point I have to put thumbs to the side. Not down but not super excited yet.

    Thumbs down Re: Having had a few days to get to know the line up: Thumbs up or Thumbs Down

    Very much so, it is still and will still be a weak lineup unless they make some significant additions, way too many acts missing, sure you can find a good band that you didn't know here and there but nowhere close to what most of us were hoping for.

    Thumbs up. Sure, the headliners are weak, but I seldom watch them anyway, even if I like them -- I'd usually have to miss other good bands just to get a good spot near the main stage, or else watch from 1/4 mile away.

    I'm getting excited about the other bands, and a not-sold out festival sounds really appealing after last year.

    im still dissapointed over the headliners, but i love the lineup apart from them. Im going to have so much fun, I hope to avoid the mainstage at all costs... last year I didnt see a single Mojave gig, so I will get on that. Sahara looks like quite the lineup and Ill be there 1/2 the time.
    Upcoming Shows:
    Kasabian/Bo Ningen: 10/1 @ Metro
    Coachella: 4/10-12 @ Empire Polo Fields

    All I know is I like this lineup, and I will have a great time once again. ESPECIALLY when they add STP.

    I'm finding more bands I like by the day. Still many bands to check out too. I hope it is less crowded, but here in San Diego I've heard way more talk about it than years past, so I don't know if more people may go.

    Thumbs up Re: Having had a few days to get to know the line up: Thumbs up or Thumbs Down

    My opinion has changed 180 degrees from my utter disappointment. I took a lot of recommendations from people and spent HOURS searching the net to get familiar with some of the names I didn't know. I can honestly say that I'm excited now

    NEW discoveries that I'm looking forward to:

    The Verve (I kinda knew about them before, but I like a lot of more their music now)

    John Butler Trio
    The National
    Boys Noize
    Cut Copy
    Busy P
    My Morning Jacket
    Sia
    Autolux
    Simian Mobile Disco

    I've only made it through the "a"s so far. But I'm finding some new bands.

    Add to that I dream about Portishead every night.


    *high five on the lineup*

    I'm still on the fence as well leaning towards liking them, but I'm sure I'll be like this for awhile so just wait to see who they're conflicting. Bands like this are always hard not sure whether to love or hate them, usually never an in between.

    Ok so I love MGMT and i just saw them at the casbah in san diego tonight and it totally reconfirmed my absolute love for this band. they are fucking amazing. the show was awseome and if I were gay i would be more than glad to please everyone in this band. However im not, so to make up for that I will buy them all a drink next time i see them (maybe tomorrow night if i can scalp a ticket in LA) . Yeasayer was also fucking sweet. yea! for yeasayer wow. that 2080 song is tubular man ill tell you what. Good night good night

    If you fail to enjoy them live, you may possibly already be dead.

    Still a thumbs down for me--a big thumbs down. But I bought my 3 day ticket, and I'll still be there. I'll enjoy Love & Rockets & The Breeders & Death Cab & My Morning Jacket.......pretty expensive 3-day concert for 4 acts, though.
