    Default Indie/Electro Festival Goers...Who's the best live?

    Okay, so for me Leonard and Paul are absolute. But as far as indie bands go, who is good live? Because I remember seeing some bands last year that disappointed me like Grand Ole Party...The Black Keys look good. and Michael Franti.

    Suggestions? Thanks!

    and as far as beetroots go...I saw them here in LA...I really disliked that show, their music was great but drunk people getting naked and rubbing themselves all over everyone else, with the snobs on the sofas in the back, watching on. not my kind of show.

    You just turned beetroots into a total must-see for me. No fucking way anyone will stop me from standing at the back with my arms folded, bobbing my head up and down for that shit.

    I will check them out, but what I've heard so far - just on a computer, with headphones - is kinda... cheesy. Maybe I just need to hear it on a huge sound system. And maybe it is meant to be cheesy or ironic or retro-ish or something. But it seems like music for people who don't love electronic music.
    So yeah, I guess that puts me in the snob category.

    Superchunk. No circuses, just straight pogoey, poppy, punky, indie.

    Check out the Presets and/or Crystal Castles for a little bit of both. Seen both and on a good soundsystem they KILL.

    Electric Touch is a great band to see live. I've already seen and met them twice at concerts and am waiting to see them to again. I love their music and they never disappoint at any venue. They'll be playing Saturday, April 18 so I would make sure to see them at Coachella.

    i also guarentee they will play the overblown overhyped day n nite remix that is now on top 40 radio that has been out since last coachella.

    Bloody Beetroots though kicked ass at summer hard and melted faces,it sucked that they had to be cut short!
