    Default What is Breeders were Headling ?

    What *IF Breeders ...

    Hey -

    I haven't fully thought this through, but..
    Would anyone feel better if the poster had The Breeders headlining Day 1 instead of Jack Johnson?

    What if Jack Johnson was just on the third line? Would people be as upset about it?

    I don't know if The Breeders are really "headlining material" , but its waaaayyy fucking better than Jack Johnson, right?
    Anyone else excited to see them?

    Well.. I guess him headling means that he will probably close the main stage so...
    fuck.

    I dont know.. Your thoughts?

    The Breeders headlining over The Verve would be just as ridiculous as Jack Johnson headlining at all.

    One of the local radio stations said The Verve is headlining this years Coachella on Friday, then someone just called to correct and he responded with well that's not my Coachella.

    Oh yeah...


    The Verve.


    Really??

    Are they actually good?

    I'm curious. But on the other hand... I really don't want to make myself listen to The Verve.

    hahha.. nice.

    I have to say though, when I heard The Breeders were going to be at Coachella, I assumed they were headlining. And I was okay with that.

    But yeah.. they really aren't strong/big enough to headline.

    Also gotta say.. The Verve doesn't seem to be headline material either.

    I agree but sure would be better than who is. Personally I don't care for them all that much but will most likely watch them. Breeders are going to rock though.

    You think The Breeders are headlining material over The Verve? In what messed up world do people entrust The Breeders to sell so many tickets? Jack Johnson might not be the best artist, but he's got his fan group. A fan group that is bigger than The Breeders and The Verve's American front.

    I think Jack Johnson is headlining because GV had a hard time looking for headliners this year and Jack Johnson was probably the better option than putting something like The Verve as the headliner, just because Jack Johnson will attract more people. I know that's not the coolest thing in the world. I thought the Curious George thing was cool... But I was really rooting for something else to headline.

    By the way, go listen to The Verve. They are pretty awesome. Sort of like Oasis. Listen to songs like Bittersweet Symphony, Lucky Man and Sonnet. All from the same album, but the others are great too.

    This is true. I know nobody here likes him but he is a big artist and will probably attract a lot of people who normally wouldn't go to Coachella.

    I had no idea who the Breeder were up until November. Actually. I lied. I knew that song Cannonball of theirs. Thats it. There is no way in hell they would ever be a headliner of a Festival like Coachella. Not even a sub-headliner. Third line was exactly where I thought they were gonna be.

    I'm in the same boat with you, rage.
    I didn't even know the name of the song, I just knew the opening riff.

    that just says you arent familiar with a lot of what coachella represents considering the breeders were a break off of the pixies and inspired acts that are new today

    I don't think you understand the difference in American fans when it comes to Jack Johnson and The Verve.

    The Breeders are fucking yawn boooooooring snore ZZZzzzzzz. I've seen them live 3 times with and without Kim. Even @ Lolapalooza 94 they just provided a good opportunity to catch Stereolab on the second stage.

    damn mikey, you sure did come across like a moron in this thread.

    the typos in the title, the complete dismissal of the verve, and...

    thinking that the breeders could headline fucking COACHELLA?

    come on now, we knew they'd be 2nd or 3rd line. we even thought portishead was gonna be 2nd line.

    At this point they may end up headlining.

    At least this guy didn't just dismiss The Verve altogether, but I gotta say- Urban Hymns (Bittersweet Symphony, and the other tracks you mentioned) is great, but A Storm In Heaven (earlier album) is WAY better, not just some Britpop. I'd say SIH comes close to rivalling Loveless, so far as early 90's trippy British rock (the absurdly denoted "shoegaze") goes.

    As for headlining, The Verve should have been over JJ or The Breeders. So what if their American fan base isn't a big as JJ's?! Fuck American fans, headlining spots are for good music.

    I was pretty drunk when I posted this.
    obviously.

    But like I said earlier, I guess The Breeders aren't big enough to headline.

    I just assumed they were when they were the first act confirmed.

    If they headline anything we'll see them on the second stage. They are doing a tour right after and most venues don't surpass a 1k capacity.
