    Default Black Mountain-so who saw them?

    I couldn't leave Waters, I was enjoying my trip way to much to leave that awesome set but wanted to see Black Mountain sooooooo very bad.

    Review please.

    I saw a good chunk of them, very good to sit down too, it was a really nice smokey atmosphere, their sound wasn't very good though (not their fault)

    I heard somewhere the tent was empty. They totally got screwed. I hope they get invited back next year and get an early evening set.

    MORE INFO PLEASE!!!

    My boyfriend and I saw their entire set. I am so happy we did. They are one of my favorite bands. They were great, even though they couldn't believe anybody left Waters to watch them.

    I have a feeling that they weren't thrilled about being stuck with a set time that conflicted with Waters, not because the turn out was so small, but because they would have rather had the opportunity to witness that spectacle themselves.

    Admittedly, I was standing near the soundboard, so I could listen to them, and occasionally look over to see what was going on at the mainstage.

    I managed to see the first half of Waters, as well as the last song of his second set, so no huge complaints.

    A bit of crowd interaction...When they came on Steve says "Thank you for leaving the amazingness that is Roger Waters to come see us - Fools!

    Started with Stormy High I think.
    Songs played that I can remember (not necesarily in this order):
    Don't Run our Hearts Around
    Druganaut (Extended and very psychedelic) was dedicated to all the "trippers" out there
    Tyrants
    Wucan
    Modern Music
    Angels
    Thirteen Walls

    Don't quote me on this, as I said it what I think I can remember, It was a long weekend

    Thanks for the info. I really can't wait to see this band. I really love the new album. Their message board totally blows though. Very little activity and no reviews really.

    they were awesome....I was thrilled with Roger Waters, but had seen him twice in the last couple years, so I was willing to sacrifice some of it to see Black Mountain for the first time........would absolutely, without a doubt see them next time they're around me

    I wish I could give some great in depth info, but I'm not familiar enough with their music yet....but working on it!

    probably not seeing this band is my biggest regret of coachella '08; I wanted to see them so bad; I'll definitely see them if they come near me in the future. They are so good ... keep on rockin black mountain.

    yeah, since they got Gogol'd with their set time, maybe they'll get a late afternoon/early evening main stage slot next year too... (a couple of hours before Led Zep on the same stage would be nice...)

    I slipped in the side of the tent and stood about 15 feet away from the stage smoking a cigarette, that's how small the crowd was. I thought they sounded good from what I heard, It was a nice departure form Chromeo and Waters that night..

    If I was black mountain, i would have left my own set to see roger waters, just saying.


    and i hope they do get invited back in 09 so we can see them without such a HUGE conflict. so unfair.

    I would have protested to the fullest instead of going against Waters...I mean why both performing at all if 1. your crowd will be very small and 2. it is against someone you want to check out.

    I snuck off to catch them too. I only heard a song & a half but they sounded awesome. The singer has a wonderful voice. I hope they come back for the 10th anniversary show.

    I still don't get how GV could put Black Mountain and Roger Waters up against each other.

    Obviously they're most likely not gonna be added to this year ('09), but I just got back from their show in LA tonight and man do those guys kick ass live. Highly recommended if you live in San Diego, Santa Cruz, or Washington and want to see a great show in the next few days...check their tour schedule.
    9/17 - Buzzcocks - Fonda (?)
    9/20 - Crosby, Stills & Nash - Santa Barbara Bowl
    9/21 - Caetano Veloso - Hollywood Bowl (?)
    9/26 - William Basinski - Pasadena Arts Council
    9/28 - Bob Mould - Roxy (?)

    Me either. One of the worst and most non-sensical conflicts of the festival.

    .
    something similar (kiiinda) happened at lolla last year
    brand new was up against explosions in the sky
    and apparently BN loves explosions in the sky
    so BN left their set 15 min earlier and went and watched explosions

    I got see the whole set. I sat and watched waters until he started in with DSTM. I have seen them a few times before and this set was definitely legit. You could tell the were pretty bummed with the set time that they got. But it was really good none the less.

    i saw them in L.A. this past Saturday... AMAZING fucking show! I'm so glad i got to see them do a full set in a sold out venue rather than missing Waters to see their Coachella set...

    they need to do Coachella 2010.
