    Talking Bands who play great live I wish to see!

    Bands who play great live!

    Doves - Under appreciated just finished their fourth album! My first and best

    choice.

    The Verve - Another British act who play great live.

    Kottonmouth Kings - California band who always keep true to their fans.

    Tea Leaf Green - California up and coming Jam band who bring guitar.

    Fishbone - Only because Angelo Moore rocks and is my friend. Drew from

    Eugene, says "please add some old school ska, punk, and funk."

    Zappa Plays Zappa - Who doesn't like Dweezil? Bring back the 'muffin man'.

    Les Claypool - The master of originality always brings the house down!

    I saw Doves recently and they were good, but nothing great. The new stuff sounded fairly decent, tho.

    I love Ladytron, but I have a hard time imagining their live show.

    Ladytron is actually kind of a snooze live.

    I watched them live courtesy of the AT&T streaming thing in my hotel room for Coachella '06. Meh, not very impressed. Maybe it was better on the field?

    I hear the Ladytron live show has improved since then. It sounded bad from outside the tent. So much that I didn't bother to stick around for more than a few minutes, even though it took me forever to get there after Sigur Ros.

    But as for epic live acts that need to be at Coachella...
    ASOBI FUCKING SEKSU

    Thank you.

    I don't know about anyone else, but I thought Yelle was fantastic last year. Not too many people at that stage, but she really hyped everyone up and it was definitely one of the more memorable sets from '08. Would love to see her again.

    I would love to see The Cardinals play. They always do such a great job every time I see them. Sooo solid since Adams got sober.

    They can drop Oasis off back in London, though...

    Unless they are throwing out hundred dollar bills at the crowd during Ladytron, they haven't improved at all.

    Eh, Slightly Stoopid and Cypress Hill are good live.

    Kottonmouth Kings? I figured they died.

    I was hoping with all that damn touring they did after Coachella they would have gotten better. I was so embedded in that tent and so close to Mira that they could have been playing "old mcdonald" and I wouldn't have cared.

    They were a tad better at John Anson Ford. Didn't get to see them this year.
    Went to see Beirut instead.

    I still think they will be at Coachella this year.

    Ladytron was great when I saw them last year. The light show and the intensity of the band was actually better than the years before. I felt like I was at one of those early 90's raves so I guess it just depends on where and when you see them. I also saw Helen and Ruben do a DJ set and that was pretty cool.

    I really want to see Pearl Jam. My buddies got a DVD of them touring overseas and it just seems nuts!

    Also MUSE, even though im sure some craps coming for that one.

    Saw Nick Cave last fall and couldn't believe how great he was, seems to be getting better with age.

    How the heck has he not played coach yet?

    Other great live shows I saw last year that have never played Coachella are Caribou, Deerhunter and Autechre
