Thread: Anyone going to Caribou and Fuck Buttons on Thursday?

    Default Anyone going to Caribou and Fuck Buttons on Thursday?

    As excited as I am by all the great artists I hope to see on Saturday (Animal Collective, Hot Chip, MIA, Prince, Portishead, etc etc), I don't think any of them make me as excited as seeing Dan Snaith beat the hell out of his drum kit Thursday at the El Rey. I really fell in love with that Andorra album and was wondering if any other Coachella goers were going to tack on an extra day of music to see him. It really looks like a spectacular live show judging by all the Pink Room YouTube clips.

    i like Caribou, and i thought Andorra was okay. But it's all about Up In Flames

    I just picked up Up In Flames over the weekend. The few tracks I've heard are awesome (though a bit different). The great thing about Andorra for me was how much it felt like an update of the psychedelic pop of the 60s... The Zombies, The Association, etc.

    Regardless it's going to be an awesome show. Caribou really should have been on the Coachella line up. That was an unfortunate omission. (though if he'd been added to Saturday my head would probably have exploded from too many conflicts of interest)

    I'm going to that show tonight in Portland. I'm very excited.

    I might be, it just sucks because I would have to drive in from the campground.

    That show had some of the best drumming I've ever seen... and some of the worst vocals I've ever heard.

    If Snaith would just hitch his talent to a great 60s style voice that's floundering in a mediocre band (Lila Moss of The Duke Spirit comes instantly to mind) he would create the next Arcade Fire.

    It was a great show regardless, but severely hampered by weak pipes. I can see why he didn't want to play in the desert heat too. Drumming like that in 100 degrees would kill most mortals.
