    Default bright eyes

    i looked for confirmation on the site but it wasnt there but if you google search coachella festival this is the third listing:

    Bright Eyes emotes across North America
    Pitchforkmedia.com, IL - 18 hours ago
    They'll hit the UK, Japan, Australia, Europe, Scandinavia, and your bedroom, with a stop at Coachella marking the end of the trek's first leg. ...

    so not sure but it is there

    It appears you've pieced together a Bright Eyes tour headline from Pitchfork ("Bright Eyes emotes across North America" - no Coachella info in that piece) with a line from a separate Pitchfork item abou the band !!! (Chk Chk Chk).

    ie ... "Aww, we missed you guys. !!! are back in action with a characteristic dancefloor odyssey ready for maximum maxi-single play ... The punk-funk crew have also just announced a massive tour that will take them around the world from February through August. They'll hit the UK, Japan, Australia, Europe, Scandinavia, and your bedroom, with a stop at Coachella marking the end of the trek's first leg. "

    no way, i like em... just he sucked in 05...

    when i saw him in town here, they had him in a small venue on campus... maybe they could put him in a smaller venue at coachella?

    so it looks like these shows sold out immediately...

    ...needless to say I didn't get tickets. and scalpers are already trying to sell them for $100 a ticket.

    I hope no-one buys any of them. fucking thieves.

    Hell, for $20 I'll croon to you as if someone is kicking my puppy or I just found out my high school girlfriend dating some other guy, or they just cancelled the OC ... all while sounding like my balls are in an ever tightening vice.

    Bright Eyes in '05 was one of the worst performances of the last two years. Up there with Head Automatica, Razorlight, and The Faint.

    05 was quite lovely. I had never seen him live before that (missed 04) and I was so happy i had caught him. i had chills.
    I only pissed on my pants because i though they were already unzipped. bitch.

    that girl makes me smirk as well.
    especially since my friend is the one moving past her to the front row after the set.
    edit: he really didn't like the cursive/bright eyes combo and was there for brmc.

    i'm pretty sure there was some reason that bright eyes was never playing coachella again, but i can't really remember. something about goldenvoice or clear channel...? i don't know.

    i love bright eyes (yeah make fun of me all you want), but in '05 I was so sleepy that I kept falling asleep standing against the front railing during the set. the security guard thought i was passing out and asked me if i was okay every time my head snapped back up. i can't remember much besides him.
