I attribute some of that to alcohol, and a lot to 10+ years of expectations based on stories of their shows in the 70s. There was no way they could recapture that; instead, they laughed in the old Suicide's face, and I now appreciate that.
Bryan was hella pissed. It was awesome.
Drunk & angry Bryan totally made my night. I wished that he had stayed longer to talk instead of storming off muttering things about how he was gonna give them a piece of his mind.
Drunk Bryan's exit from Suicide was probably just as violent and punk rock as what he had expected to see on stage. I was 100% certain that he ran off to go puke in the lake.
*based upon tedious fact checking.
Can anyone give a report from Primavera? And does this mean we can now expect an announcement soon (hint hint) ?
i''d put my money on an update next week...
since Emeralds are playing nightmare... can we plz get them at atp ny? pretty pretty pretty pretty pretty please?
Spiritualized are doing ladies and gentleman in New York on July 30th....
My name is Becca. Hi.
I don't think I would be able to handle myself!
I seriously need to see ladies & gentlemen..
The date got taken down from ticketmaster. i really hope they move it to be a Saturday, not a friday. There is no way I can get to New York for that otherwise
Also since that date wasn't officially announced maybe they're waiting for a certain announcement before releasing it...
Also Jamie states he doesn't think the main stage can hold the entire orchestra, then later states the second stage is likely getting moved?? HMMM!
i wouldn't bank on spiritualized cuz it seems the big headliner hole is in jarmusch sunday. atp saturday seems booked solid
tho i've been wrong before!
So the Pixies are touring with Fuck Buttons throughout the US during September. I doubt they'd play since the Breeders are already scheduled, but who knows.
Again, prove me wrong!
Both are within the realm of possibility. Crazier things have happened at many a ATP. Although I would not personally be thrilled with either of them...
Yeah, on some level I would love to see Pixies play Doolittle but I don't see how it'd fit with Friday as currently constructed. The Stooges, the Scientists and Mudhoney form a nice, neat chain. Maybe Sleep could be seen as the next step in that chain but it is at least a side step... but regardless they fit in perfectly.
Pixies do not make sense with that set. Doesn't mean they couldn't be enjoyed and maybe such rock shows should not have that sort of clarity but shit.
And I would be shocked if Sonic Youth were not the Saturday headliner.
i would be surprised... but not shocked. it would be a money thing... not an ego thing... getting in the way of that happening.
i agree that that Doolittle would be a money issue, but just the timing of everything and the fact that Deal is already playing the fest, AND the fact that they're touring not only with a band who is playing the fest, but is on ATP/R makes me think that something came together to make it happy. Honestly I would be 1000000x happier if ATP was the first promoters who got them to do Surfer Rosa.
And we'll see about saturday. I wouldn't be surprised if they were, but I wouldn't be shocked if they weren't. When I said headliners I meant to fill up the top 4 spots(headlining and just preceding stage 1 and same for stage 2)
