Thread: Any artists you were excited to see when the lineup was announced, but not anymore.

  1. #1

    Default Any artists you were excited to see when the lineup was announced, but not anymore.

    When the lineup first came out I was somewhat excited to see Vampire Weekend and MGMT. Their albums are way fucking played out to me now, and I seriously have no intention of seeing them at all anymore. Anyone with this same problem?

    That usually happens with bands that suck.

    Just kidding. No, I dont know that I have that problem. I haven't been listening to much Coachella music so I can't say anyone is played out. Although I have been playing alot of Does It Offend You, Yeah? And it got slightly played out but I am still excited to see them.

    Oh yeah, i'm way over DIOYY too. These are like the only artists though. Every other artist I wanted to see when the lineup was announced I have only gotten more excited to see.

    That would be great but they're touring all over the place starting at the end of May (in case you missed it). They'll be better in a small venue than at a festival.



    As for the subject at hand, I'm to the point where I really couldn't give two shits about seeing Justice.

    They're just old to me now. I cant really listen to them anymore.

    But if my schedule permits, i'll check them out, because i'm sure they're a blast live.

    I think I may have ruined Made In The Dark for myself by playing it too much. It's fantastic but kinda' gets annoying after a while...is it just me?

    Bonde Do Role... turns out i was listening over & over to a remix of one of their songs, and they really sound nothing like what i heard... "Gasolina" (Crooker's Crunk Mix) ... now THAT's a song to roll to...

    also:
    Serj Tankian
    Mum
    VHS or Beta
    Kid Sister & A-Trak (wanna hear his version of 'keep em high' & that's it...)
    Junkie XL (eh)
    Spiritualized (acoustic set? in the mojave? during metric? pass.)
    Perry Farrell (not if it's only a DJ set; especially if it's during Waters)

    oh, and of course, the bands I was MOST excited to see, but not anymore:
    The Bees, The Streets, Adele, Turbonegro, Jamie T, & Madness

    MGMT. Saw them here in denver a few months ago and it was the worst show I've ever seen. I still dig the record alot but live they were horrible. I may watch them hoping they redeem themselves, but we'll see who they conflict with.

    Black Kids and Datarock. Got really pumped about a song or two from each, and then everything else I heard was pretty underwhelming...

    On the opposite end of the spectrum, two acts that weren't high on my list but have moved up in the last couple weeks: Santogold and DeVotchKa.

    I think I'll still give MGMT a shot despite the negatives I've heard about their live show...

    i'd have to be pretty bored to watch MGMT anyway... if Kavinsky, Minus the Bear, The Teenagers, Yoav, & Calvin Harris were all that was playing during them (AND i didn't need to go piss), then i'd watch MGMT...


    maybe.

    Santogold is climbing high on my list as well. I'm totally into this record. DeVotchKa is bad ass, local Denver band. I've seen them, lord only knows how many times and there a great show.

    I'm not a big minus the bear fan, but live i have to say that it was really amazing. saw them at the glasshouse two years ago and they truly did blow me away.

    I saw MGMT here in El Paso last year and it was not a horrible show at all.

    In fact, they were pretty cool. So there you go.

    Damn Mikey, those are the two bands I've listened to more than any other over the last couple weeks. Just you wait, they'll be two of the best shows of the weekend. Get your shit together man! Get excited.

    Oh, I'm excited!
    (two best shows? nahhh.. They'll be great though)
    But, Hot Chip loses me after a while.
    And I can't really grab onto the new Raconteurs album.

    Dude, they are heaps better live than on CD. It is no contest. Unless one of the heavy hitters is playing at the same time, see them.
