    They're a must see for me. I'm sure there are a lot of people on this board that's excited about the billing. For me its about time. Just like its still about time for Sufjan and The Shins.

    I like them a lot. Don't plan on seeing them, unless its a partial. Mainly because I think it'll be a little predictable.

    Great songs though.

    ah, ive always heard they were amazing live, so im excited to see it first hand

    i agree completely about sufjan+the shins. i wish i could have seen the shins play at sasquatch 08 (or was it 07) as far as sufjan goes, its been a life long goal since illinoise to see him live

    I've only heard good things, will surely check them out unless someone else crucial is playing.

    Okkervil River is the greatest band of all time.

    Easily the best show I saw last year (Henry Fonda, Los Angeles)... hope they're not situated against someone huge so that everyone can enjoy them on Sunday.

    Okkervil was very solid in Seattle a few months back. Nothing awe inspiring but that's not the kind of music they play. There is no reason they can't play another solid set at Coachella.

    I saw them at Sasquatch last summer. It was awe inspiring, and that is the kind of music they play.

    I saw them down in Tucson a few months ago, first time I had seen or heard of them. I had a great time, the music was cool, the lead singer was high on coke and kept talking about how the microphone must have been dipped in some because it was giving him the numbies. Good time all the way around... except for the dude next to me who kept busting ass the whole time.

    No I missed that. Yeah it gave me a good laugh. Not many people got the reference I don't think. Then he switched mics with one of the other guys, saying something about needing to eventually feel his mouth.

    I plan on catching them! Glad I stumbled upon this thread - I had read somewhere a week or two ago that they were not very good live and I was rather disappointed. Glad to see those of you who have seen them live have all good things to report!

    Definitely my favorite act of all the Sunday performers...Haven't caught them live yet...but their string of albums over last 5-6 years has been phenomenal, save for latest, The Stand Ins, which hopefully won't completely dominate the set.

    05's Black Sheep Boy one of my top 20 albums of the Decade.

    ? to more knowledgable fans - Is Jonathan Meiburg still touring with the band, or his he completely off with Shearwater now...his voice is so big a part of what makes Lost Coastlines such a great tune.
