    Default Franz Ferdinand in 2009

    For better or for worse depending on your taste (as they usually appear to be a very polarizing band) Franz Ferdinand has an album coming out around April of 2009. Methinks they will make an appearance on the main stage.

    Im down for that as long as they play Outsiders. I see them very likely to play at Coachella 09.

    Yeah what snippets I've heard from the new album has gotten me pretty excited. I've only heard that they have a pretty powerful live show so it's one of the big ones I'm gunning for in the '09 lineup.

    ya, polarizing is a good way to say that, not sure why though, seen them 4 times i think, and they always put on a great show ... over the pond, they are bigger, but then the brits seem to be always on the edge and well just weird on who they like, but i seem to usually agree with them ....x****

    Say what you want about them, they are a great band. 2nd stage would work for me. They did great on the main stage.
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    I will start an underwear thread for sure if they play. I them like you wouldnt believe, got their debut album on vinyl autographed @ Coachella 06, it hangs framed and proud on my wall.

    A million times YES to this! If you know my wishlist (and I know you do), you'll remember that I have them playing sunset right before Beck and Bowie on Sunday night. a boy can dream

    This is a no-brainer: they'll be there (as long as their new release doesn't totally bite)

    became a big fan of theirs after their last coachella show...i would be very pleased with their inclusion in the '09 lineup
    I'm a reasonable man, get off my case.

    Set was good in 2006. They should do their "Mis-Shapes" cover at every gig, though.
    9/10 Swans @ Roxy, 9/17 Karen O at Masonic Lodge, 9/19 Tokimonsta @ El Rey, 9/20 Chvrches @ Tower Theatre, 9/30 Cibo Matto @ the Roxy, 10/3-4 Desert Stars, 10/9 Zola Jesus @ El Rey, 10/16 Massive Attack @ Greek Theater, 10/22-25 CMJ, 10/26 Asobi Seksu & Slowdive @ Royale

    I never listened to much FF, but from what material I've heard from them they can have a slot next year.......

    that doesn't mean it's a good thing.

    I agree completely. Their set was mediocre at best. By the time Sigur Ros came on, I was half asleep.

    Thank fucking god for Daft Punk a couple of hours later.

    I really liked Franz Ferdinand a lot back then although I'm not sure how well that translated to the main stage at a festival. I remember enjoying it back then, although I haven't listened to their music in a long time now.

    That explains why I watched Sigur Ros (who were pretty good as it turns out).

    I say bring Franz Ferdinand and Arctic Monkeys back. I love that shit.

    i actually like a lot of stuff by franz, but i was really disappointed by their coachella set. they've said themselves they like making music that gets the girls dancing, but unfortunately they didn't get my toes tapping once. i would love to see them in a small, indoor venue though. maybe it would be a better set.

    You probably didn't watch them in the first place. One of the tightest, best sounding bands I have seen.
