    Default Carsick Cars + Coachella 09 = Awesome!

    These guys are an indie rock trio from Beijing I learned about a few months ago from a friend. Anyone else heard of them? Anyone ever heard of a Chinese indie band playing at Coachella before? Exactly! Never! If they're any good live (I don't know) they should totally be on the bill this year.

    You can listen here:

    This is the first part of my wish list... Goldenvoice, please bring these guys out for Coachella 09! You know you want to!

    Spam! Yes, you're absolutely right. How silly of me to put my wish list in the forum called Rumors/Gossip/WISHLIST!

    Thank you for showing me the error of my ways. Twit.

    Well, I'd rather not have a band that nobody's ever fucking heard of play Coachella. There's probably a reason why nobody has ever heard of them.

    Alright Elmo, I hear you, but I wasn't talking to you. I was hollering at the guy from my hometown (Fremont).

    I posted the link to their music. Go listen, then decided if you want them to be at Coachella or not. Besides, if you don't want bands that you've never heard of to come to Coachella, then you are seriously missing the point of this thing and should stay home yourself. A big part of Coachella is about hearing bands you've never heard of before and falling in love with them. I don't know many indie bands from China that have a serious following here in the States, do you? But after people take the time to get to know Carsick Cars, I am hoping that they will be one of the first. Which, incidently, is another thing Coachella is about: introducing cool music from all over the world to open minded music lovers like you and me... well, me more than you apparently.

    Actually, I honestly am familiar with about 90% or more of the artists that play Coachella and the other 10% I check out beforehand. So no, a big part of Coachella for me is NOT hearing bands I haven't heard of before. I'm not gonna take a chance on a band I MIGHT like over a band I DO like since there's usually always one that's playing but hey, that's just me.

    Anyways, checked them out, nothing too special... pass.

    Actually cubrocker, I kind of agree with you. But Coachella needs more cute asian girls, and if Carsick Cars brings them out, then so be it.

    Carsick Cars are not that special live. They supported Sonic Youth over here on their Daydream Nation dates and didn't exactly blow me away.
