    Shit I cannot believe it has been 20 years since I have seen the B-52's, and they were awesome live back then. One of the funnest shows I had seen up to that point. It took a while for me to enjoy myself that much at a show again.
    "It's in the K" - Martha Stewart

    Since the show list is very minimal...
    August 29 // Chemical Brothers w/ Chromeo & Yacht @ Hollywood Bowl
    September 26 // Vampire Weekend w/ Beach House & the Very Best @ Hollywood Bowl
    October 5 // ARCADE FIRE @ Henry Miller Library
    October 13 // Corin Tucker Band @ The El Rey
    (someone should give me Sufjan Stevens tickets, aint got none of those)

    id probably check them out if there weren't a conflict. but lets all be honest with ourselves, most of us probably won't recognize shit other than private idaho and loveshack. i imagine they're a fun show nonetheless

    That's quite difficult to believe. How many of their songs have you actually heard?

    Love Shack

    and a few more whose names I'm not sure of.

    Fred Schneider's vocals is the main reason for my hate. And the CHEESE. Don't forget the cheese.

    I saw them last summer. I wouldn't classify it as a fantastic show but they're fun.

    That's kind of what I figured. Still hard to believe you couldn't easily think of at least 25 acts that you hate far, far more.

    I saw The B-52s last year at The House of Blues in Anaheim, CA and it was one of the best concerts I'd ever seen in my life. The audience, however, was completely out-of-line...nothing but a bunch of drunken gay frat boys, shoving each other and everyone else, singing off key to all the songs, and spilling their stale beer down everyone's backs. The band was top notch. The audience was a negative 10. I'd welcome The B-52s to Coachella, but I'd hope all the obnoxiously drunk frat boys would stay in Orange County (or go to Mexico for the weekend). If The B-52s made it to Coachella, I'd like to actually ENJOY the show this time.

    Well there are bands I hate far, far more.

    Let me re-phrase: The B-52s are one of my least favorite bands of all-time (that a lot of other people with respectable taste in music seem to really like).

    That's more like it.

    Like I said..........Orange County.............Mexico is calling your name. Club Cabo Wabo has your name on a bar stool. Tell Sammy we said, "Hi!"

    I'm not even much of a fan, but off the top of my head...

    Rock Lobster
    Legal Tender
    Planet Claire
    Quiche Larraine
    Strobe Light
    Give Me Back My Man
    Party Out Of Bounds
    Whammy Kiss
    Channel Z
    Deadbeat Club
    Roam
    Devil In My Car
    Lava
    Good Stuff

    There's more than a set right there.

    Doesn't matter, Devo is playing the role of the early 80's band this year, and they blow B-52s away. And if you yell "Whip It" between Smart Patrol and Gut Feeling, I will kick your ass.

    Go fuck yourself. How you associate my negative response to this band with the assholes that surrounded you at the show you went to is beyond me.

    the b-52s are fucking ace! their live show is so much fun.

    and i can say that they are better than the strokes, who bored me to tears when i saw them.
    it's not the band i hate, it's their fans.
