    Default Hindsight is 20/20

    Who are some bands that you weren't familiar with at Coachella but like now and wish you would have seen?

    For myself, the biggest one is Cut Copy. I caught their last 2 songs while waiting for Dan lesac vs. Scroobius Pip but now that I have their newest album I really wish I'd have seen it all.


    Also The Shout Out Louds, Sia and Duffy. Although, I would have only caught a few minutes of Sia as there was no way I'd leave My Morning Jacket early.

    Agreed, she had obviously had a few drinks and missed her autograph signing because she was "late arriving to the festival"... But she still sounded great.

    As for Duffy.... I caught the end of her set, waiting for CSS this weekend at APW and well... she's even worse live.

    I thought amy sucked last year.

    decent jazz singers are a dime a dozen in this town, and that's all she is.
    her band was pretty decent, but she was awful, and her hair was worse.

    I don't think I'm ever going to forgive myself for missing depeche mode in 06. I just didn't know them like I them now!

    i love abe vigoda.

    i'm sure santagold will be back next year. I wanted to see her too, but too many conflicts. A lot of people were pissed they missed her.
    Then I will hold you down and spit her percolations all over you until you're as greasy as the day she regrets pushing your big fat ass out her big fat cunt.

    '04 - i would have gone the second day. stupid scheduling mess.
    '05 - miss kitten, zap mama, bright eyes, stereophonics, arcade fire.
    '06 - imogen heap, eagles of death metal, scissor sisters, the go! team, infadels, gnarls barkley.
    '07 - amy winehouse, lily allen, gotan project, the roots.
    '08 - datarock.

    for the most part i see all i want to see. there were probably some good reasons as to why i missed the bands listed above but looking back over the posters those are bands i would categorize as "i'm probably never going to see them outside coachella" or "i should have seen them THAT year instead of when i did."

    Im sure this is old news but..

    Did you know Modeselektor played THIS track right before Roger Waters started to take the stage?

    I dont really think I missed as much from 2008 as I did in 2007.

    I also saw some Depeche Mode in 2006 and still got to the Sahara before takeoff.

    Depeche Mode in 06 was horrible, no one should be upset they missed them.

    I wish I had gone to see Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings this year. The Verve underwhelmed me.

    People are probably upset because they just wanted to see them in person.

    And I don't know about you but the Verve were really good this year

    I didn't find the Verve horrible per se, but I wasn't overly impressed with them either. I was just disappointed. I ended up leaving them a little early and caught the end of Sharon Jones and my husband said they were incredible, wished I had caught the whole show.

    I only watched like 15-20 minutes of the Verve, I just wish I could've seen more but I went to see Serj.

    If I could go back I would have stayed for The Raconteurs. Wasn't all that familiar with them until after Coachella and now I like their new album. I was just walking around during their performance.

    I probably would have tried to catch the first part Santogold but there were plenty of conflicts during her timeslot.

    Also, I was just chilling out in the shade tent when Does It Offend You Yeah? was playing. I would have got a good position in the Gobi for that show knowing what I know now.

    Sharon Jones was simply amazing...there were a few other acts I caught that might have topped or matched her set (Prince, Portishead, MMJ, Roger Waters, National (who were five times better at Coachella than any other time I've seen them), Akron Family), but only Prince in last year's line-up topped SJ for sheer showmanship...Just an amazing Stage Presence and bands don't come any tighter than the Dap Kings.

    Four Tet was great. He needs to play again.

    Making the right moves at Coachella is a very personal thing. Some choices will never be understood by others. This is the beauty of the festival. I had only ever been happy with myself and my decisions until this year. I moved around too much trying to see everything. You have to make decisions and let some things go. Personally I wish I would have withstood the urge and the call of the Sahara this year stayed with Roger Waters for DSOTM. After finishing Modeselektor's awesome set I headed for R.W. and caught a few songs, saw the pig and some pyrotechnics but for some reason the dance tent drew me back in for fear of missing something incredible. All said and done Chromeo and SMD were fun but I think I was supposed to see DSOTM.

    My only regret as of now from '08 was missing The National.

    In '07 however, I regret missing Ratatat, Grizzly Bear, DJ Mehdi, Justice, MSTRKRFT, and trading my close spot at DJ Shadow for a spot far off in the grass.
