    Default Could Pavement Headline?

    Not that Billboard is right but according to a recent article they believe Pavement to be a "rumored" headliner...What do you think?

    EDIT: BTW here is the article if you missed it

    i think they'd be a great subheadliner, but i doubt they headline. then again, if it is their first reunion show i could see it being a big deal. i mean, i would fully support it but i think there would be backlash for a "bigger" headliner.

    I adore Pavement. To the point that I WILL cry when I see them. But I have also seen them live. It's not a headliner show.

    Isn't Malkmus a really good guitar player? I'm basing that on his Jicks work (at least I think that's him playing)...

    Oh, I wasn't commenting on the technical skill. They sounded great, but I remember a lot of staring at shoes. Solid sub-headliner.

    The Killers, regardless of how people feel about their music, put on a bells-&-whistles show. Jack Johnson...well, I see your point there.

    I think the fact that other shows have been announced, and that diehards bought tickets for them already, hurts their likelihood of headlining. I mean, it's not completely impossible, but #2 seems far more likely. In any case, they will be there.

    I vote for "Yes." Not because I believe that they will headline, but because I believe that they could. They certainly wouldn't be the worst or least famous headliner ever.

    That said, they will sub-headline; it's almost a guarantee.

    Also, if they refuse to play unless they headline, I hope they headline. They're better than most of the likely headliners.

    If pavement headines I am calling at least 5 threads saying "who the fuck is pavement?
    Pavement would not be a big draw as a headliner.

    Yes. 4 dates in Central Park and curating their own festival makes them small-fry. 12pm in the Gobi FTW!

    Explosions in the Sky have curated that same festival. So have The DirtyThree. So have The Mars Volta.

    Do any of them have any business headlining Coachella?

    So what's your point?

    So have The Flaming Lips and My Bloody Valentine. Both hugely popular subheadliners of the past. Make sure you only pick the artists that help your argument though. That is the mature and balanced thing to do.

    The point is, curating ATP does not mean you are a Coachella headliner.

    if there is a weak saturday, they could subheadline.. but i think the whole issue seems to be that the band is insisting on headlining their reunion..

    i think the perfect solution is to have them headline a day at APW.. problem solved.

    but if they do headline a day at Coach, 1. the rest of the lineup is gonna have to be amazing as fuck, 2. Daft Punk better go on after them, even if Pavement has higher billing on the poster, making them technical headliners, or 3. they play while David Bowie is in the Sahara..

    David Bowie in the Sahara, sounds like the worst idea ever

    Pavement isn't going to headline
