    Yea, I didn't think the OP was that difficult to understand.

    I'm still making my way through bands, but am blown away by Gogol Bordello. How had I never heard of them, they're not even "new"?!?

    I am going to say that rodrigo y gabriella sounds awesome. They do a spanish guitar version of one by metallica.
    I go to shows and festivals.

    So far for this year, I've really gotten into Justice and Digitalism. Despite the fact that both groups have a very limited discography as of now, they both have a sound that promises to be great live. I'm familiar with many of the other bands on the list.

    So far, the bands that I had not heard of before Coachella that I now can't wait to see are:

    • Klaxons
    • Arcade Fire
    • Spank Rock
    • Evil Nine
    • Silversun Pickups
    • The Good, the Bad, & the Queen
    • Blonde Redhead


    Although, even if I wasn't going to Coachella, I would have seen Arcade Fire on SNL. They are impressive live, but I'm still trying to figure out what instrument Régine Chassagne was playing during the second song that they played.
    I'm starving... let's get some f*ckin french toast!

    im gonna have to go with silversun pickups, the decemeberists, and busdriver. now i cant wait to see all of them (hopefully the decemberists will play the outdoor stage as the rhcp do the main, so theres less of a crowd)

    I had never heard the Black Keys or Silversun Pickups before they were announced for Coachella. Now I am looking forward to hopefully seeing both of them.
    ------------------------------------------------------
    I felt like I'd just watched something culturally significant. Actually, Nirvana came to mind. I hope this is Arcade Fire's coming out party.

    there's always a few bands that might have snuck beneath your radar. I think with all the resources we have it's rather tough to not know of someone.
    That's just how I see it, to each his own.

    With that said, I didn't know much about The Bird and the Bee and Kate Nash. I'd heard both before, but I knew very little of their catalogues.
    I had never heard of My Morning Jacket. And then they blew my mind.

    Kid Sister with A-Trak, and Akron/Family both blew me away. Such fun high energy shows.

    Here are some bands that I missed at Coachella over the last three years but I saw them later in life, and it made me wish wish wish I'd seen them at Coachella because they are Awesome live and they probably would have been even better at Coachella:

    The National 08
    Booka Shade 08
    VNV Nation 07
    !!! 07
    Animal Collective (missed in 06 but saw in 08)

    The biggest example for me would be the Go! Team in 2006. I was willing to watch their set in the name of seeing the Scissor Sisters right after. The Go! Team were so fun!!!! It was an awesome show.

    In 2008 it was VHS or Beta and Boyz Noize. VHS or Beta was the first act on Sat, and I figured I'd give them a try... I loved that high energy dance rock. They were really good!

    Boyz Noize was just a random DJ I was looking to move to for an hour or so. Little did I know he'd be the best DJ act I saw all weekend (I saw and enjoyed many other DJ acts)... He blew the fuckin roof off the dance tent lol.

    I got hooked on Manchester Orchestra this year.

    Also, I'm glad I saw MMJ. I had heard of them, but never heard them on account of their stupid name.

    I used to be really into them in the late 90s/early 00s. They are fun live, I must have seen them 5 or 6 times over the years.
