    Default Did nobody get up for Grand Ole Party?

    So reading through the thread of who people saw, I noticed that nobody got up sunday to go catch GOP. Now before COACHELLA 2008 I had no idea who these cats were but they have become by far my new favorite band. They absolutly rocked the outdoor stage early sunday afternoon and I was front and center. SO i guess this thread is for anyone to fill me in on their opinion of what they thought..........

    I'm pissed that I didn't catch them. But I went with a group and none of them wanted to leave the hotel until later. Definitely camping next year though.

    I love this band. I bought a t-shirt (wearing it now). Every hour on Saturday had something great going on. GOP's gonna be the kick-yourself-later-for-not-having-seen-them-at-Coachella band of 2008.

    I saw about a third of their set since I already saw them (MUUUUUUUUCH closer, and got the setlist) in Santa Cruz a few months ago. Kristin, as always, was fucking smoking, and the crowd, more or less, was loving it. I was able to weave through the crowd to get a good spot fairly easily and it was just a good time all around.

    I saw the whole set, and I have seen them before. Grand Ole Party kick major ass, and they will be huge. FYI, Kristin is HOT.

    Good to know...I'll be seeing them in Pemberton and was wondering how their show was going to be. They were lower on my list of must-sees but I am now reconsidering making them more of a priority.

    i saw them and beside the chick drummer being hot i wasn't super stoked on them...

    but i am sure having a hot chick singer who plays drums too is plenty enough to be "fucking huge"

    Okay, look... This isn't the appropriate thread for this. In fact, I'm pretty sure 90% of the people reading this thread don't know or don't care about Ben. What you're doing is, basically, slander, but if you're gonna keep up this crap, do it where it belongs... Not in the Grand Ole Party topic.

    I loved the chick lead singer/drummer with the Obamam drumhead. They were pretty good.

One of the victims is my girlfriend and since he was Bi and couldn't find a dude to fuck in such a small town he decided to take out his anal aggressions on his 15 year old girlfriend without asking, without a warning, and without any kind of lube. I also personally knew one of the other victims and she confirmed she was anally raped as well, this guy got what he deserved for ruining GOOD peoples lives and it pisses me off that you all seem to think he was some great nice guy. If you knew him you know he did more drugs than anybody and this was bound to happen eventually, i wasn't surprised at all, in fact i was delighted to hear my girlfriends anal rapist was dead, and if it were someone else who OD'd he would be blasting them right now for not knowing what they were doing.

    I can't speak to whether or not Ben's a rapist--hey, lots of guys are--but I saw Ben's family's house only two weeks ago, and, um...

    if they're the richest family in your town...

    OK, benrotsinhell...wrong place wrong time. i am not quoting you so that when PF deletes this shit no one else can read it. and I can assure you that when she's done with Stagecoach it will be deleted. Asshole. I am sure that slandering someone that cannot defend themselves is a sure ticket to hell as well my not friend.

    In any case, I missed GOP because my weekend was catching up with me and I was unable to leave my hotel room until after their set but let me say this...I am not a huge fan of bands with female singers...I don't know why but if you were to look at my rather large collection of music you too would notice this fact. And I think GOP ROCKS! I am sorry I missed them...and Austin TV too. But that's the way it went. At least I live in LA so I will have to opportunity to see them locally soon I am sure.

    I saw them at the Echo a while back and they were fantastic. She kind of sounds like the girl from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. It looks tiring to bang on drums while singing your heart out, though.

    Oh yeah, I totally heard Karen O in her when I first starting getting into a few songs off their album. Not a bad comparison for a female singer in this day and age IMO.
    Anyone who had to double-up on the mic/drums for rockband could amateurishly feel for this woman I would think lol.

    I'm getting pretty excited for Pemberton and hoping there will be a few more adds as we get closer to the date (which I wish would come quicker, impatient). I have a feeling it is going to be a great weekend.
    Sorry you guys have the V-Fest cancelled...I was thinking of going to the Calgary one but it the line-up leaves much to be desired...and I have a wedding in B.C. that weekend, so I'm not too put-out by it.

    I like most of their music, I caught most of their set, I liked what i heard, I liked what I saw:



    I always thought her voice sounds like a throwback, almost like a Mae West thing going on. Funny 'cause her speaking voice is very baby-like.
