    They're a gentle, simple people. And most of them are here on this board anyway.

    I'm not that board's spokesperson, and one of the Admins there figured out who I was by like... my third post here, so I'll only say:

    It's a fresh new incarnation of an old board from which Delta was banned. Evidently, he copped the new board, and signed up again. There was some discussion as to whether to automatically re-ban him, the result of which was that he was given another shot, with strict instructions to behave himself. The guy's still not popular, but they're an amiable bunch, so they'll put up with him barring some spectacularly appalling affront. 'Cause they're nice that way.

    Even you, Mockingbird.

    Please don't ban me, F.

    '09 Too soon...

    Arcade Fire headlining Friday 2010 makes more sense.

    They are NOT HEADLINERS, really do you think they belong on that list of past headliners?? No they do not. They will be back someday but not as a headliner no matter what you fanboys say.

    They have the skills and innovation to be headliner material someday. More successful albums and growing their fan base is very necessary though.

    I honestly don't think it'd be possible to headline off of two albums, but yes, once their next one is out (counting that it's consistent with the past two) they are certainly headliner material, but I'd say Friday only. Those of you who don't believe this are simply ignorant to their level of popularity. I mean, most would concede they in fact headlined Saturday of last year anyway.

    If the White Stripes are so often being tossed around as headliners these days than certainly Arcade Fire ought to be as well.

    Kinda refreshing though, to live in a day when great, original, and NEW bands can headline the world's best festival.... that's how I feel anyway...

    The White Stripes and Arcade Fire are definitely the biggest indie rock bands of this decade. They both blew up really fast.
    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

    AF > about 50% of coachella headliners.

    too many headliners are old retreads that weren't that good to begin with and have accumulated a mythology that drooling fanboys buy into without really listening. if you're gonna book old retreads at least make them good old retreads. where's that buzzcocks slot? but I digress.

    Too soon for Arcade Fire. Not soon enough for pancakes.
    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.

    Arcade Fire should only be at Coachella next year if they are backing Bowie...

    And I added it for illustrative purposes. Also, it gave me an excuse to watch it again.

    I was watching The Hunger with Bowie and Susan Sarandon the other day; by a curious happenstance, I saw Susan Sarandon watching Arcade Fire at a festival last summer. Small world, the entertainment biz.

    Since no one felt the 2007 performance was "too soon" after the 2005 show, by that same logic 2009 would not be out of line.

    Indeed. For the record, Tim Robbins really likes Laika, and dances like a lovely dad. Josh Hartnett can't even generate a different expression in real life.

    Jesus Christ, don't mention that Tim Robbins likes them--he's a fucking kiss of death. That tidbit alone is practically enough to make me want to turn on them.


    And Arcade Fire should be allowed to come back to Coachella any time they have a new album, fuck it. That band is 100 percent solid live despite being kinda goofy. Not sure how they'd do as headliners though. It'd be a real coup to have a Coachella headliner who's practically never gotten any radio or video play.
