    Dunno if you saw them on SNL but they totally didn't play up to par. They actually, for being the album of the year...sucked ass on SNL. I love them...don't get me wrong...but they better be doing somethin different. They killed it at Street Scene last year though...SNL sound guys suck for new music.

    I've seen em a few times and its hit or miss....Great band though...I've always wanted to see them at Coachella though and I think it will be badass.

    Apparently TVOTR hated their SNL performance.


    I can't wait to see them. I could care less if they weren't very good in 06.

    I wasn't very impressed at the Treasure Island Festival last year.

    BTW, at Treasure Island Fest, TVOTR was backed by Antibalas's horns.
    Now granted, Antibalas was also on that bill, but maybe they will bring em aong to really flesh out the sound. Cuz it sounded great.

    All these guys do is let you down with their live performances. Adjust your expectations accordingly and do not expect them to "destroy".

    Actually, I've seen them a ton of times and they fucking own everything.

    Imho they put on one of the best live shows. It's a religious experience every time.

    Same here.

    Don't listen to what people say...make up your mind for yourself.

    A friend of mine said that when he saw Modest Mouse in '04 that it was the worst show he had ever been to in his life. That kind of dissuaded me from wanting to see them live, but when I saw them in '07 I couldn't have disagreed with him more. They put on a kick-ass show.

    I got to see them open for Massive Attack a while back at the Hollywood Bowl. Lotta hype around this band and I was not familiar with any of their music. I thought they were good. Not great, but good. Their songs lack any real hooks but they have a fantastic sound and energy to go. It should work great at Coachella.

    /Massive Attack otoh absolutely owned that night. Fuck I love that band!

    I saw them at the Wiltern a few months back, they were pretty sick. I could definitely see them potentially destroying on the festival stage. They're one of those "gotta see it, fuck the conflicts" bands for me.

    I'm psyched to see them but i don't think they'll "destroy". Mesmerize maybe?

    "Dear Science" is one of the best albums I've heard in a while.

    It's a testament to the subjectivity of music that someone feels this way. TVOTR puts on one of the worst live shows I have personally ever seen. I'll be avoiding them like the plague at both Roo and Coachella.

    They have so many layers and production technicalities going on in their albums that it's nearly impossible to replicate them onstage live. Maybe in 15 years after they breakup, are persuaded by Paul T to reunite at Coachella 2024 and sound systems have improved immensely, they'll be just as good sounding as MBV is now after returning.

    But they don't replicate their songs on stage, and if you've seen a full show by TVOTR, it's obvious they're not trying to. A lot of their songs carry a different energy in how they're recontextualized. In some ways, I prefer them live. I've yet to see a bad performance by the band beyond SNL.

    Ditto. I thought they were flat out bad. That was the part of the day when I chilled the fuck out FAR away from the stage.

    They might play a good set and I am sure people will enjoy it....

    But I highly doubt anything will actually be destroyed before, during, or after the set.

    I'll add that they will be BORING... even the killers will get better reviews.

    TVOTR is one of those bands that frustrates me to no end. They have some really excellent songs, but their albums on a whole do very little for me. Lots of crap gets sandwiched between their brilliance. As for the live setting, I have seen them twice and they bored me both times.

    TVOTR is one of my favorite active bands and I've seen them 5 times. They were excellent to mindblowing at 4 of these shows and were awful at Coachella '06. Bascially their performance is completely dependent on the monitor mix onstage the the overall mix that the crowd hears. If they don't have a good monitor mix the harmonized vocals will something less that "harmonized" and if the mix isn't good for the audience certain elements will be left our or muffled. If they get good sound they will destroy.

    It's worth noting that the sound was horrible for them at Coachella '06.

    Seeing them live is actually what got me into TVOTR. I saw them open for NIN in 2006 and I had a great time. It's weird to see a lot of the negative reviews of their show because I had a blast. I must've caught them on an "on" night.
