    Saw them in Portland on Saturday and was very plesantly suprised with their performance. Way better live than I would have expected.

    I'll never cry for a Coachella headliner but this band is in a deceivingly tough position.

    -They kill it and no Daft Punk - a good portion of the crowd leaves disappointed DP never showed up.
    -They kill in and Daft Punk shows up - DP gets the credit/headlines.
    -They don't kill it, with or without DP - that won't be pretty...

    I bet they never thought that MSG show would come back to haunt them like this.

    I'm pulling for them to do well. I know they will.

    It's amazing that people could be disappointed when something that has been thoroughly debunked doesn't happen.

    I like Phoenix as much as the next person, but I find their music to be over-hyped and WAY over-played. I caught them in 2010, was bored halfway through, and left. They might be a "must-see" for the average fan but to me they are clearly not Coachella headlining material.

    You don't like them as much as the next guy. This was your main point. You like them slightly less.

    Saw them last night, pretty much the same set list as posted previously. Bummed about the lack of older material - only one song from before Wolfgang - and more than half the set was new stuff (and I haven't heard the leak). This was my fifth Phoenix show and least favorite. I'd probably prefer a set list of stuff they *didn't* play to what they did.

    And I'm officially a grumpy old man. Sigh.

    Hehe, should have listened to the leak. I haven't stopped listening to it since it came out and it's really a fantastic album. Much better than WAP, so i'm pretty happy with the setlists that have been popping up.

    But isn't it weird to have set lists that require you to illegally download an unreleased album to know at least half the songs? I certainly wish I'd heard it, but I still find that bizarre, particularly considering they have four other albums.

    Really, I should have looked at set lists before the show so I knew what I was getting/could manage expectations. Hate doing that, prefer not knowing what's coming, but it has its benefits I suppose.

    On that note, if anyone wants to PM me the album, I'd be much obliged.

    I hate to be the "why don't they play what I want to hear" guy, but I'm bummed they don't seem to be playing If I Ever Feel Better.

    Yeah, I agree. Also didn't they only play for 1.5 hours or so last night. Maybe they will bust out a couple oldies at Chella. I was hoping for some oldies last night but was happy with the set list. I thought the show last night was pretty great. They were in good form.

    You went to the Independent @ SF? A friend got in and she said they did their Air cover of "Playground Love". (So far, they've only played "Long-Distance Call" as their only pre-WAP song.)

    Yes, and that was AWESOME. And to be clear, the band sounded good, lots of energy, ready to take on a massive stage. I just wish they acknowledged that they wrote music before WAP.

    ^Ah well, I think once the album is released and a few months have passed by, they'll probably do a few more of their older songs. It's all Bankrupt! promo, you know how it goes...

    Well for me, the few WAP songs that they have played, I enjoy. For some of the new ones, I wouldn't mind swapping 1-2 for an oldie.

    Yeah, it's best seen live. Also, I think they've only done the full lighting set-up (to be used in Coachella) during the Seattle gig.

    Don't hate to be that guy. It's shitty for a band to not play a song of theirs that nearly everyone wants to hear. If it weren't for the audience they wouldn't even be there.

    Seattle encore clip of lightshow.

    Sigur Ros's light show runs circles around this.

    I would argue most Radiohead fans couldn't care less if Creep was performed or not.

    Also, Phoenix doesn't have the catalog Radiohead has and has very little excuse for not playing two of their biggest songs other than some bogus sense of artistry.

    Plus, Radiohead no longer makes music that sounds like Creep. Phoenix still makes songs that sound like If I Ever Feel Better, so it's not much of stretch to expect them to play it.

    If you're a band that only has a handful of songs everybody in the crowd is going to know, and you're choosing not to play even one of them... then it can be a long night as a headliner.
