Thread: Funnest Bands at COACHELLA!

    Default Funnest Bands at COACHELLA!

    Last year, I saw a bunch of really good bands, but they weren't necessarily all that fun. So this year I'm totally willing to skip a boring live show from a band I like, to see somebody like Gogol Bordello, whom I've never really listened to, but I hear nothing but amazing things about their live show. Guarenteed anything in the Sahara is gonna be good times: Justice, Simian, Boys Noize... Others I'm betting on are MGMT, Animal Collective (if the crowd's good), and I'm From Barcelona. Who else is guarenteed to put on a fun live show?

    Spank Rock is a definite fun live show.

    M.I.A., Man Man, Bonde do Role, Yelle, Cut Copy, Diplo, Midnight Juggernauts, Calvin Harris, Kid Sister and A-Trak should all be fun as well.

    hot fucking chip

    saw them last year and only knew a few songs. i actually expected them to sound like shit, and was kind of annoyed at how everyone in the crowd seemed to jock them so hard. but let me tell you - they were one of the funnest and most energetic electronic group i have ever seen.

Robert Plant would probably be on there somewhere too.

    I completely forgot about Hot Chip. Yes, they were definitely a highlight of last year.

    The only thing I've really heard about Dan Deacon is that his live shows are really fun.

    ..and the beginning of that clip is hilarious!


    Also Man Man!!
    this is "Mister Jung Stuff" from new album Rabbit Habits (killer album).
    (not the best quality)


    And you have to see Modeselektor


    That's all I got for now.
    And if you weren't into these guys before,
    you're welcome.

    EDIT:
    Does it Offend You, Yeah?

    Pendulum will be an absolute blast (live-instrument drum-n-bass, crazy energy)
    Holy Fuck *kill* live (instrumental without the wanky overplaying)
    Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings will also be great (high energy soul revue)
    Datarock can be really silly fun (uhm.. LCD Soundystem's drunk and horny younger brother?)
    Flogging Molly? also fun (pogoing drunken irish jig-punk)
    I'm From Barcelona will win the "most members on stage" award normally reserved for the Polyphonic Spree.

    Good call on Sharon Jones, that's going to be some serious good vibes and energy.
