    Default Basement Jaxx!!

    A new album coming soon, and I see on their myspace they have a live show in Tokyo after some DJ dates in the UK.

    One of my favorite acts ever srsly needs to come back to the states soon!

    I'm gonna be all over whatever hopeful tour happens, but Coachella needs to happen as well.

    I constantly play these 3 sweet recordings from their 2007 tour alot.

    Some people here are obsessed with bands like Radiohead and even nerdy about it (in a good way). I'm like that with Basement Jaxx (...and several other non-EDM stuff... Not to discredit me or anything).

    *random drunken thoughts end*

    !
    I can't find no damn place for a gigography on them (apparently, Wikipedia doesn't have EVERYTHING), but I don't think they ever did a nice sized consecutive tour in the states.

    Festivals and scattered solo shows.

    I'm hoping to go to a festival gig and at least one solo show. I may have to go to NY and Coachella for those.

    Basement Jaxx Re-Schedule UK Tour

    Due to unforseen circumstances, Basement Jaxx regret to announce that they have had to re-schedule their UK tour dates which were due to take place in February 2009.


    The band have also decided to add some extra cities to the original tour and the new dates will now be as follows.


    Basement Jaxx apologise for any inconvenience this may cause. Ticket holders who cannot attend the new dates for any reason will be entitled to a full refund from the point of purchase.


    Tickets for all shows will be on-sale from Monday Dec 1st 2008 (at the new VAT rate!)

    April 2009
    20th Newcastle, Academy (Tickets for original date remain valid)
    21st Nottingham, Rock City
    23rd Birmingham, Academy (Tickets for either original date remain valid for new date)
    24th Sheffield, Academy
    25th Glasgow, Academy (Tickets for original date remain valid)
    26th Leeds, Academy (Tickets for original date remain valid)
    28th London, Roundhouse (Tickets for Feb 20th date now valid for new date)
    29th London, Roundhouse (Tickets for Feb 21st date now valid for new date)
    30th Manchester, Apollo (Tickets for either original date remain valid for new date)

    May 2009
    1st Bristol, Colston Hall
    2nd Edinburgh, Corn Exchange (Tickets for original date remain valid)

    Tickets can be purchased online from www. basementjaxx. co. uk or by calling 0871 220 0260.



    Hmm, so I guess this makes it either VERY likely they will play (Friday?), or not likely at all... I'm hoping for the former since I've missed them 3 times now >_<

    Coming from someone for whom EDM makes up less than 0.5% of his music listening, for this, I would probably die.
    Or cry.
    Or one leading to the other.


    As in, infuckingcredible.

    (Not to mention Massive Attack?!?! Goddammit who needs indie rock anyway!)

    I'm fairly confident we're getting Basement Jaxx and Prodigy, paulb. The only other acts I feel this confident about are Massive Attack and Band of Horses. I don't even need to know who the headliners are if those 4 acts are there, it's got Best Coachella Ever potential on that foundation.

    massive attack is a stretch. id say you have a better chance of seeing groove armada in 09.

    but i would love to see basement jaxx and groove armada in one weekend that would be crazy. plus chem bros or prodigy and its like woooooo. (id prefer chem bros being that i havent seen them) but prodigy would be fun too

    Agree 100%! BoH were simply amazing at Red Rocks. I need them at sunset Sunday leading into Beck with strings leading into Bowie. I NEED IT

    did you post Youtube vids of Band of Horses from Red Rocks in that fest thread? If so, they were awesome...and their show opening for Beck in Aug, is still one of the best show ive seen this year probably... BEST opening act set, ive ever seen for sure.

    Because every band I tell you to get into follows the same process:

    1) You "acquire" several of their CDs
    2) You tell me you "acquired" them and can't wait to listen to them
    C) You keep listening to the same CDs you recently "acquired" and let the new band fall by the wayside

    Band of Horses rules. They're a small step down from MMJ.

    Oh and paulb, I'm very jealous of that show. I hoped against hope it would be BoH and not MGMT opening for our Beck shows the next 2 days, but c'est la vie.

    Best opener I saw: LCD Soundsystem --> Arcade Fire (f*** off Salah, AF is amazing, they're another band you'll get someday)

    the crazy thing was, I had no clue what Band of Horses even sounded like... I was almost planning on skipping their set and seeing what was going on downtown... but i figured i spent the money on a concert, might as well see who i paid for.... so im sitting down, they start to play..... a little southern feel to it... but each song just kept getting better and better.... the audience were really into it and loud, which made it even better... they had 3 standing ovations...and ive NEVER seen an opening band get that much love at this venue before... then, just when i thought their set was perfect enough... they drop this one song which absolutely blew my mind, had me closin my eyes and fuckin feelin it...later I find out the song was called, The Funeral. WOW. what a song. I immediatly after their set go to the soundboard guy, and get their setlist, cause I wanted to know what I just saw.... it was too perfect... them on the Outdoor Theater next year will be heaven. I wont miss these guys ever again if they come to town.

    That's a great BoH story, paulb, I'm glad you had such a moment with them! His voice is just perfect, they were meant to play at Red Rocks, it seemed. I hadn't seen them prior to that and it was the driving factor in making the trip (plus SSPU, who are equally amazing). I was not disappointed. They've gotta be at Coachella, and I will be front and center. The Funeral was the best song at Red Rocks too (since they didn't play Detlef Schrempf). My buddy posted the vids, I think, btw.

    And Basement Jaxx at Coachella is going to be phenomenal, just to get back a little bit to the topic.

    Yeah really who cares? There's only like 3-4 of us up this late/early, we may as well converse.

    P.S. Salah, I bought you an adorable Arcade Fire scarf and fanny pack for this weekend.
