Thread: Conflicts: Should I See ______ or _______?

    Default Conflicts: Should I See ______ or _______?

    So I'm sure alot of people are trying to mull over in their head how they are going to deal with their conflicts.

    I have a quite a few myself. So I started this thread so that people can post their conflicts and ask for advice on which act to see (or whether to see half of both).

    Here are the conflicts I'm thinking about and would love some advice on from people who have recommendations:

    Friday:
    1. Crystal Casltes vs. Franz Ferdinand
    2. Leonard Cohen vs. N.A.S.A. & Ghostland Observatory (I don't have many other dance acts I want to see on friday so I don't want to skip Ghostland, but at the same time... it's Leonard fucking Cohen)

    Saturday:
    3. Turbonegro vs. Chemical Brothers (this one is killing me)
    4. Mastodon vs. MASTRKFT (I wanna get my metal on but I also don't want to find out that MASTRKRFT's surprise was the most amazing thing ever and I missed it)

    Sunday:
    5. X vs. Plump DJs
    6. The Kills vs. Public Enemy
    7. Throbbing Gristle vs. Etienne DeCrecy (I don't think I will want to see more than about 30 min of TG so I think this might work out, but I still want your guys' opinion on whether I should stay for the whole thing)

    See Franz (crystal are really hit or miss live, but franz always deliver) and then cohen (how many chances are you going to have to ever see him?)

    saturday go with the chems (it's going to be incredible in the sahara) and then i guess mstrkrft (i don't know much mastodon so i can't say)

    sunday i would go with plump djs (not an x fan)
    then the kills (public enemy are a risky proposition for a good show) and then etienne (the cube!!!!)

    The one I'm having a lot of trouble with is The Cure vs. Groove Armada (I've seen the cure before but i'm not too familiar with armada)

    I also have the Kills vs. Public Enemy conflict. I'm going with the Kills. I've seen PE years ago, and I figure I can get everything out of that show by sitting for only a few tracks. Never seen the Kills and I love their new album

    1. Franz = fun
    2. L Cohen = cool
    3. Chem Bros = awesome (my personal favorite)
    4. MSTRKRFT = watch for surprise? (if it turns out not that amazing, mojave is short walk away)
    5. Plump DJ = maybe(maybe go see YYY's though)
    6. Public Enemy = classic
    7. I think I'm splitting this half and half too

    Uggh... Sunday night freaking SUCKS for conflicts. The Orb, Public Enemy and Groove Armada on at basically the same time. F**K!!!

    I'm thinking skip Groove Armada (Dj set), go see Public Enemy and then rush over to Gobi to see the Orb play. Then hopefully rush over to the Sahara to catch at least the 2nd half of Etienne De Crecy and the CUBE.

    This is the first Coachella in all these years that I can barely find any major conflicts.

    Only one that bugs me a bit is APTBS vs. Patton & Rahzel

    I was going to see Patton, but I've been digging APTBS' album since the lineup announcement introduced me to them so they take priority.

    I think it's more of a 'which act is the better live performer?' question.

    I'd see the Hold Steady: they absolutely rock live.
    Black Keys for sure. you will regret missing them.
    Chemical Brothers over Turbonegro (Sahara is gonna be Jones'n for a huge scale dance party by that point)
    Band of Horses: gonna be ethereal on that Outdoor Stage (much like MMJ last year, 'cept main)
    Gaslight Anthem will be a lot more enjoyable than Fucked Up's antics, methinks.

    I'd go the other way, the Beetroots are going to fucking slay.

    I'd say go with Los Campesinos...they are a great live show and Welsh, so they don't do as many US shows as The Hold Steady do. There's a good chance you'll be able to see The Hold Steady at festivals for years to come, they're a good festival band.

    My only other advice is Junior Boys over Band of Horses and Fucked Up over Gaslight Anthem. Especially if you wanna see the kids up front go nuts.

    see crystal castles, even if you don't like their recorded stuff too much I think they put on a good live show and you won't be disappointed.

    Except for the fact that you wouldn't fit in the tent.

    Los Campensions, Black Keys, Amanda Palmer, Chemical Brothers, MSTRKRFT, Band of Horses, Fucked Up, Lupe.

    Those are my suggestions, but if you only listen to one, see THE BLACK KEYS! I am bummed I am not going to see The Ting Tings but The Black Keys will be way better.
