    Default Coachella 08: Proving We're Pathetic Lightshow Monkeys

    All you people talking about Roger Waters as having been a good performance have no respect for the actual music. That was an absolutely terrible, blasphemous recreation of some of the most beautiful music ever. It was just a bunch of fireballs and bright lights and a fucking sing-along.

    We bailed after Eclipse and hauled our tripping asses to Justice and had Goldenvoice perform the best lightshow (with the spotlights, of course) I've ever seen. That set saved Sunday.

    I thought they sounded amazing. How could you leave during Eclipse?!

    They sounded horrible. Jesus Christ, I was on so much acid ANYTHING would have sounded good to me and even I could hear the complete inability of Waters OR the Gilmour replacement's ability to sing, and neither could play their fucking instruments either. Anything you heard that sounded like actual Pink Floyd was the drumming or the prerecorded audio tracks. There was no "music" being played on that stage.

    Whatever motherfucker, I was up there and there were no vocals to speak of and no guitar playing even remotely close to what was trying to be imitated. Waters just looked sad up there extending his arms out, making his big pleas for applause for doing a piss-poor re-enactment of music he wrote a long time ago. All there was was a bunch of smoke and flamethrowers and horseshit distractions to draw your attention way from how lame the actual music was.

    im torn on this...this is why:

    i saw youtube vids of exactly what randy is talking about: just watching sober from a musical perspective, i thought it sucked. i know youtubes arent always a good representation of a show, so ill take that into account, but it didnt sound that great to me.

    that said, i thought they sounded amazing last night. granted, i was pretty fucked up, but it was mostly happy mdma shit related. i can see maybe tripppin on acid how you can trip on weird shit like that, but i thought it was a great performance. the one of th best parts was seeing that chick doing guitar solos on her violin. damn, it took me a while to figure that out, but once i did, my mind got blown even a little more than it was before that. all around, the show was epic though. and i thought it was great, but i still agree it proves we are light show monkeys. give me a pig and a prism refracting light at me, and im happy.

    fuck...362 days left?

    That performance and sound blew away the same show I saw 1.5 years ago and that was great in itself. Honestly, from where I was standing, the entire show made me feel like I was right there and Roger is the master at orchestration. Way off base on this one Randy. Sunset My Morning Jacket into Dark Side = best trip ever.............game over. I was with two audio junkies who have are sound and recording people that couldn't stop talking about how good it was.

    You are however entitled to your opinion and if your trip took you to Justice, more power to you, I saw a great one put on an absolutely amazing show.

    I was sober, and it sounded stunning to me. Not just the performance itself, but the sound quality was the best I've ever heard at Coachella.

    It also converted a couple of my non-Floyd fan friends. So there. Nanny nanny boo boo.

    i think the main stage always has pretty epic sound. they have that shit dialed in...obviously there will always be glitches in something as big as this, but in general, every act ive seen at the main stage the last couple years has sounded amazing.

    YES! i was just to the right of the soundboard, so i had those rear speakers right behind us, and those sound clips coming from behind were pretty awesome. when the first one happened, it sounded like a big sonic boom from overhead, and i thought a jet flew over or something, but then as it kept happening, i realized it was coming from the back speakers.

    randy......my god, you are so stupid. you sit here, for MONTHS, giving shit to anyone who talks of the slightest interest in skipping roger waters for someone else, and then you come on here, not even 24 hours after he's played, to say to went to see JUSTICE??????????????????







    YOU'RE A FUCKING MORON, AND I WISH I WOULD HAVE SEEN YOU SO I COULD HAVE SLAPPED YOU FOR BEING SO FUCKING STUPID.

    How about when the bright lights lit them from behind and put their shadows on the ceiling? Holy fucking shit.

    randy, usually I respect your opinion, but I think you've gotta just trust here that it was just your intoxicated perspetive on waters' show.

    it was, both aurally and visually, just about flawless.


    not trying to pick a fight, just saying, man. I'm as much of a hard-nosed prick about talent and musical intergrity as anyone on here, maybe more, but dude.
    you're really just plain wrong this time.
    I'm really sorry you missed out.
    try NOT being fucked out of your skull next time.

    I must be an ass though. Sorry, I have no respect for actual music. What is wrong for praising a great stage, props and lighting? It seems like you dismiss this as if were nothing. Man, if you really thought Justice was better than waters.. you really have your head up your ass.

    if you take enough acid, your hearing is going to get distorted.

    justice was fun, but come on, they're just djs. nothing groundbreaking about them. not hating, because I went to both Waters and Justice and had a great time, partied my ass off. but saying Justice was better than Waters is just about the dumbest thing I ever heard.

    Waters did have pretty distractions... (that 'wow, i'm on drugs really hard face' everyone was looking around with)... the pig and plane was cool... but so would anywhere else be if I was on the acid and molly I ate for this too... for all those people on your X that made you find it so wonderful, any fucking music is wonderful when you're rolling... that guitarist and his stupid facial expressions. they were hilarious and I still had a great trip but definitely do not regret leaving early to catch Justice's entire set... Justice KILLED Waters' set... Justice played so hard and with those spectacular, beautiful lights to just enhance that complete connection with whatever it is you connect with as an individual on a spiritual level... that was music you could truly FEEL... Roger Waters didn't go anywhere beneath the surface...

    I thought Roger Waters was pretty fucking good...he's old and has a raspy voice, but I thought the performance was tight.....

    how did Justice brainwash so many people? I really like them, but was extremely unimpressed by their set......and I was rolling like crazy, and so in the mood to dance my ass off, but the set never got me going.....I don't know what amazing lights you guys are talking about, but I saw better visuals several times throughout the day in the Sahara

    The funny part of this statement: if you switch every instance of "Justice" and "Roger Waters", you have my opinion. In case anyone cares, I was stone cold sober (have to do a UA test for work in about a week, plus I feel like I should listen to the music that's being played for what it is, and drugs also fuck with my memory of a show in the long-term, which I don't like).

    Is it possible to say that I loved both Waters' set and Justice's set in a way that makes both sets un-comparable to one another?

    Agreed. 100%.

    I was not on drugs for Waters.. and his set was simply mind blowing to me. Justice rehashed their hits over and over and extended that shit until it was dead. Seriously, What crazy light show was there for Justice? I must have missed. It wasn't even moving heads.. Some Scanners and some Par Cans. It reminds me of like the light show at The Whiskey A Go Go.
