    Raconteurs have been heating up the car CD player lately but it has not been played on and on and on as the Verve CD has. Urban Hymms is like a family heirloom.

    I'd like to see both, but in a pinch I'd go for the Verve. Their songs seem well-suited for the atmosphere. From the early space-rock ("Gravity Grave") to the later anthems ("Bitter Sweet Symphony"), it just seems like something I'd want to fully experience out there in the desert.

    I can't vote...I want to see them both. I LOVE The Verve and their huge sound, and I LOVE Jack White, who is perhaps one of the best musicians ever. Everything the man touches turns to gold!

    Please no conflict here...this is all ask!

    I'm looking forward to both, but I enjoy the Verve's sound more, and have known them for longer. I fully expect the Raconteurs to put on a better show, however.

    I voted Verve. This bi-partisanship is tearing Coachella apart!
