    if the gobi is big enough for zappa plays zappa, then i will lose a sliver of respect for the coachella audience.

    I'm basing that on the size of the venues on the current tour. it's not frank zappa. it's just his son, who is very good, but it's still just a cover act.

    Daniel Johnston is a better songwriter than he is a musician. His live performance is not great. We would really be better off watching other people perform his songs, IMO. Built to Spill...

    or Beck for instance...

    i don't find most Johnston covers compelling. Johnston's songs lose all emotion when covered.
    live, he's straightforward performing, nothing extraordinary. but i was still in awe when i saw him. to see this legend (or myth?) standing in front of you is stunning. plus his cover of "You've Got to Hide Your Love Away" was stellar.
    Mazxy star was nice and dreamy robightm crowd wouldn't follow no photo request. First time in the green room. Mmm free beer and wine.glad I got to see them Cruz I missed Coachella 3012

    I dunno. I wasn't really impressed. I seriously love it when other people cover his songs though. I have a Daniel Johnston tribute album, and it's dope.

    Uhh... he has played Vancouver twice in the last 2 years. Both times he almost sold out a 2800 person venue. That is much larger venue than what a lot of the subheadlining acts at Coachella play. If Zappa Plays Zappa were to play Coachella (which they wont) it would either be afternoon on the mainstage, and evening/night on the Outdoor theatre.

    Also, isn't Zappa Plays Zappa the biggest cover band in the world?

    outdoor:
    air, the hard sell (shadow and chemist), les claypool in some incarnation, bad religion, MF doom with either danger mouse or madlib

    sahara:
    shpongle/hallucinogen, an infected mushroom set to make up for 07's conflict, boxcutter, venetian snares, shitmat

    mojave:
    george clinton and parliament funkadelic (ideally three hours from tenPM to oneAM. two hours MINIMUM), holy fuck, patton oswalt (standup), roots manuva, battles

    gobi:
    mr. plow, zappa plays zappa, victor wooten, me first & the gimme gimmies, linton kwesi johnson & the good time reggae band

    oooooooo victor wooten... that would rock

    This is not bad. I would very much like to see Cat Power get an outdoor Sunset.

    really josh? that's cool, man. I guess it's like MMJ where the venue size seems to vary drastically. zappa plays zappa was at the mod club here, and that's like... a 500 person bar/dance club in the college drinking area of little italy. it was based on that 4-6 hundred person booking that I guessed the gobi.

    don't get upset, salah. he listens to coldplay.

    passive, why?!

    I guess trip hop and the white stripes are polar opposites in terms of bass levels and american white-ocity. I can still dig both

    *sigh* I can get people not liking/hating the white stripes, but I need to represent them. It's my job to get angry when someone calls them "awful garbage"

    hell no I didn't! damn, now I'm really kicking myself for not going.
    all the ad in now magazine said was zappa plays zappa, mod club, 19+, $31.50 or something like that. well, in that case, bump off the unrealistic but oh-want-so-bad blur reunion and add zappa plays zappa in a sunset slot. and to fill the hole in the gobi, hows about... oh! oh man! dayglo abortions!

    and god damn, I wasn't crazy, they are playing the mod club. the mod club is tiny. it's a bar first and foremost. thatnks for the heads up on the steve vai part. I may have to get myself a scalped ticket to this:

    yours is probably my favorite so far.
    especially Bad Brains on the main stage.

    And seeing Gogol on the outdoor theatre, would be way awesome.


    Besides the point:
    Anyone down for T.S.O.L.?

    Ooh, good call with Sufjan Stevens. I kinda forgot about him since it's been over 100 years since Illinois.
