    AH the one time I went to whistler I was too sick to go to the mountain .... My friend drove me and another Calgary friend from Vancouver... As soon as my flight landed in Vancouver it was like I instantly had the worst cold ever.... Ended up watching croc hunter while they were at The Boot, and the mountain.

    yea, honestly i tried listening to some of their stuff before the '04 coachella, and it was so bad i didnt check them out. im still kicking myself since i hear they killed it. i guess i have a 2nd shot now though.

    and to be honest im not that into daft punks records either, but thank god i went and checked them out anyway in 06...

    I totally got to this quote too late for a funny reply like "Sure. ", ah well.

    Anyway, adding to the list:
    - MIA
    - Battles
    - Animal Collective
    - Jack Johnson
    - Kanye West

    I also think that Bob Dylan is overrated, but I have total respect for what he's done for music in general. And I dislike the DEP, but they do weird shit, and for that they have my respect.
    Upcoming Shows:
    * Dillon Francis + Anamanaguchi -- December 28th

    Going to Weekend 1 of Coachella 2014

    TOOL

    Depeche Mode.I am enjoying the silence of not hearing them right now,in fact.
    I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes me to tremble for the safety of my country. . . . corporations have been enthroned and an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until all wealth is aggregated in a few hands and the Republic is destroyed.

    Hot Hot Heat

    I live in the city they're from (Victoria Canada) and I do not understand how they've managed to get a following in the U.S. or ANYWHERE for that matter. It's like listening to a rake scraping a chalk board whenever the lead singer sings. Their first single from a few years ago, 'Bandages' is absolutely horrendous.

    Generally, I don't dislike any of the bands people rave about on here. I'm a people-pleaser.

    EDIT: Wait. The Mars Volta. To quote David Cross, "I'd rather hear the death rattle of my only child ..."

    That's the most positive sounding negative review I've heard. I like sulky. I like film noir.

    On my list:
    -Arcade Fire
    -No Doubt (not exactly raved about here but has been popular)
    -don't like the singer from Sigur Ros, but the instrumental part is cool
    -not too sure about Gogol Bordello but will attempt to see them live

    Yeah, I cannot listen to a full song of Gogel Bordello on their albums. However, I am considering going to their show in SLC before coachella, but am worried the Coachella show will be better than SLC show, just because it's coachella. I am also worried though that I wont see them at coachella due to conflicts so I should see them in SLC I am really torn about this.

    In this case, I can't really care too much. My husband really likes them, so by God, we're gonna see them. We'll probably be far back, but still.

    I have watched youtubes of Gogol Bordello's live performances, and based on that information I decided I had zero interest in seeing them at Coachella 2007. Energetic bouncing around on stage and silly outfits don't make me like their music any more than I currently do. I won't see them at Coachella 2008 unless they're up against empty four stages and even then maybe not.

    Not trying to hate, just saying that they are a very divisive band and not everybody is going to enjoy them, even live.

    I understand the Gogol hate. They are definitely not for everyone. I , on the other hand, happen to think they are one of the best acts out right now, and feel that Super Taranta is a top 5 release from last year.
