    Default Pavement confirmation for Coachella 2010

    http://consequenceofsound.net/2009/1...where-and-why/

    After Europe, it’s on to the U.S. for more tour dates, again at “larger size” venues. The band is also plotting appearances at two major music festivals (because of ongoing negotiations, we were asked not to name names, but here’s a hint: one takes place in a desert and the other is very indie)
    If we're lucky something will happen. Some adversity will happen and something unexpected will happen and you'll get tired and you'll get hungry, you'll have trouble going to the bathroom, and you'll lose your car keys, and all these wonderful things will add up to some powerful experience that 10 years from now we'll say "We lived, we lived." - Wayne Coyne on Coachella

    What I find most interesting is that CoS went from this little off the radar website over the past two years that wrote about whatever music its writers liked and didn't really have much of a direction to a website that still looks kind of all over the place but then festival season comes around again, and they pull this out of their hat.

    Alex got this interview, right? That's a huge get for a website many people wrote off a year ago. I think last year they proved themselves as a more reliable source, and this year they're confirming it (pun intended) by actually showing us the big names giving them the time of day in interviews, etc.

    Well, he did interview someone from Pavement, right? I would think that is a pretty strong indication that he isn't just pulling it out of his ass.

    Alex is not making this shit up... Pavement is his favorite band EVER, and would not do that...

    You're getting Pavement @ Coachella 2010.
    It's a 99% certainty, as long as the money negotiations finish up.
    That comes directly from the band.

    CoS printed it as a confirmation, but was asked to take it down and water it down a little because the business end of things wasn't signed sealed and delivered quite yet.

    I still don't believe it till I see it on the poster or the band comes out and says so directly. I've learned my lesson.

    I'm gonna believe this one..Spiral Stairs is touring with Bob Mould band. He just hit up LA last week at the Troubadour. So it makes sense someone would of asked him about it.

    Hmm would you like to bet on that? If I were a betting man...I'd say your gonna see Malk and co. tearing it up in the desert..making up for a shitty performance back in '99. Please let them be on the mainstage before DEVO!!!

    your post was going great until the bold text there.

    i am glad to see someone else agrees that pavement won't be headlining should they be put on the bill (since you assume a band will be playing after them) but devo will not be one of the bands playing after pavement. no.

    edit: no.

    I thought they were confirmed the minute the reunion was announced. Some things are no brainers.

    watch slow century dvd. tons of amazing live footage. It was impossible for me to make it through without yelling "fuck" outloud because i just kept getting my mind blown.

    This is going to be one great coachella if it is true

    i'm not saying pavement won't be at coachella. i'm saying that the article is not a confirmation. do you understand the difference?

    no clearly you don't understand because jtovar21 has decreed that devo will be playing after pavement on the main stage.

    edit: i am still kind of laughing. i don't dislike devo by any stretch. it's just a hilarious thought.

    I understand the difference...

    But do you understand that Alex spoke to Malkmus directly?

    If a boarder/blogger cannot get a confirmation directly from a band... your "confirmed" list is going to be awfully short until January.

    I know I'm new to this board, but I've been Lollaboarding for a really long time.

    Alot of very solid confirmations have come from an interview Alex has done and written about on CoS, or just told us about on the board.

    Just because he printed an article about it rather than coming on here to tell you directly does not negate the FACT that this confirmation came directly from the band.

    When its just speculation, Alex is usually very careful to tell you so.
    But when its real... Its real.

    Just my opinion, which may not mean much, but I think you're crazy not to call this Confirmed.

    his name is crazzz. he isn't calling it confirmed yet. sounds like you're just stating the obvious.

    i will give CoS credit for seemingly improving over the course of this past year and i seriously doubt they would fake an interview. however, i have yet to see anything that says "Pavement. Coachella. Definitely Happening" so i will not bank on this yet but i'll let you say "i told you so" if this is the case. deal?

    also, you refer to alex by first name and live in chicago. isn't there a CoS office in chicago? is it safe to assume you contribute and / or work for CoS? you are sweating them very hard right now.

    Stranger things have happened..this will be my 10th Coachella so Pavement before Devo wouldn't be so crazy...say Pavement at 7 - 8:20 ..DEVO at 8:45 - 10 and headliner at 10:25 - close

    Devo headlined Main Stage at Street Scene (2007) and they are gonna come out with a big A/V show next year...why not put them on the mainstage?

    If they can put Crowded House before Manu Chao/RATM (crazy as that was) ....then why not Pavement into Devo into Headliner?

    dear weekly mix,

    alex is on this board and pretty much everyone old school knows him. he has not improved at all this year. Pavement is months old news. We can 'sweat' him all we want.

    signed,
    gee thanks

    If they are still in discussions about money they are NOT confirmed. I would not be surprised if they did not play.

    haha mine too. I'd wager they are probably on 75 percent of those pools. It's almost a match made in heaven with their reunion announcement. Coachella would be foolish not to at least go after them...since they'll want first dibs in the US Fest circuit.
