Well Amy were they amazing or what .
I respect you've seen great acts . Please be honest . Was that anything close to nine inch nails or Bowie or radiohead or even the black keys .
It's out there dude. If you're not sorted by the time I get home tonight (around midnight GMT) I'll see what i can do.
Seeing Phoenix tonight, which is cool, in case they conflict with someone else I want to see during weekend 2. Chances are that I will see them twice in a matter of two weeks, though.
download the one under "uploaded"
File's been taken down on both newalbumreleases.net links anyway. Skynet is learning.
There you have it Amyzzz gave her blessing saying the singer was cute. Do what you will with info.
thanks, just listened to the new album, its pretty good. if someone has an ftp server setup i will dump it there if need be.
What are the chances that their set tonight is the same set they play at coachella? I'll write the setlist down.
One last dig god thomas mars is the most boring lead of all time.
I didn't see the set (over at Sigur and Booka Shade) but it sounds like Phoenix totally pulled it off. Good for them! R Kelly is a bit strange but whatever works.
I was way back and pretty pooped from a 12-hour day on the fields, so I left about halfway through, but they sounded great - a billion times better than that SNL performance.
saw the first couple songs (entertainment and lasso) from the beer gardens before making my way over to sigur ros. they had a great crowd from what I could tell and they sounded great! I plan to see them weekend 2, but sigur ros was good enough for me to think about skipping phoenix again in favor of them.
I consider myself a fan of phoenix, but I was actually angry at them a few times for interrupting some quieter moments during sigur ros. I'll get over it!
I consider myself a fairly big fan of Phoenix, but had no idea why GV felt they were ready for the main stage. I went in as a skeptic, but felt that the band completely justified their presence. The sound was crisp and the levels were perfect, the visuals and lighting were welcomed accompaniments, and the band produces an amount of energy within the audience that very few bands can do--even the group to the right of me wearing flat-bill LA Kings hats smoking cigars and calling so-and-so "faggots" couldn't help but move just a little (they were obviously waiting for Daft Punk).
I was afraid they'd play too much of 'Bankrupt', but the amount of songs they played were limited and the ones they did play are my favorite from the record. R Kelly's appearance is the most genuine surprise I've ever had at Coachella, or at any music-going experience--I also had no idea I knew EVERY SINGLE WORD to 'Ignition'. Mars' finale, where he crowdsurfs the crowd from the soundbooth back to the stage during a reprise of 'Entertainment' was a great moment and worthy of the Coachella experience.
Last comment, the group in LA Kings flatbill hats repeatedly chanted Daft Punk anytime Phoenix played sometime remotely funky (e.g. Love like Sunset + Bankrupt). At the end of the night, a lot of people stood around chanting Daft Punk, and not Phoenix. As we left the campgrounds, here's a list of comments overheard:
"I can't believe i put up with that shit and we got no Daft Punk" (in a tone when a valley girl doesn't get to drive daddy's bmw to the school dance)
"Fuck yo. That shit was weak yo" (guys in LA kings flat bill hats)
"Who the hell wanted these guys on stage anyway? Give me some French! DAFT PUNK! DAFT PUNK! (Phoenix=not actually from Phoenix)
Lovely lovely people. I know you're reading. Keep coming to the festival. The Faint felt relatively empty cause you idiots were watching some awful trap/dubshit or something.
I really hope when DP does go on tour, that GV has them play a show or festival that's NOT Coachella so that these types of people stop coming.
Jeff Goldblum for main stage 2012.
Phoenix was the worst... honestly. I was so bored and upset by the end of the set. Sure, ill admit I was curious about Daft Punk. But i was more curious to see what it was GV felt they had that deserved to be top spot. The hits from the last album are still great, but the new songs just didnt have any energy. And to top it all off, an absolute joke of an encore. Bringing out R Kelly, crowd surfing for ten minutes and then finishing over ten minutes early on saturday night... wow. Fuckin bullshit. Luckily i still had time to run over and catch the end of Sigur Ros and I still got to watch the first 5 songs of New Order.
Coachella 07 (the introduction), 08 (the bands), 09 (the documentary), 10 (the people i came with), 11 (the relationship test... we passed), 12 (whatever the weather, Dirty Epic forever), 13 (the year of the troll)
- PEARL JAM WHY YOU HATE COACHELLA? -
The new songs sounded great, especially "The Real Thing"
I'ma ball at the mall shuttin' down the sea wall
Phoenix killed it again! wasnt much of a fan of "Entertainment" but when they openned with it, it was killer energy
Loved their set and loved R Kelly. Yea make all the jokes you want but 90% of the crowd along with myself knew every single word to 'Ignition' and wasn't afraid to sing it. Was a better finish than the RHCP for sure, even though the chili peppers sounded great.

I was on here awhile back whining about their show in SF. I take it all back. They killed it Saturday night.
I came in halfway through Sunskrupt! and when they followed that up with "Too Young" I died. R. Kelly was a more inspired guest than Daft Punk would have been - surprising, weird, and cool. I can't think of another time I've seen a mashup happening on stage (usually R Kelly would sing Phoenix songs, or vice versa). So cool. Great way to finish my favorite night of Coachella, maybe in all eight years I've gone.
Love Like A Sunset was so unbelievably beautiful. One of the fondest Coachella memories I will ever have. Such an awesome way to end a perfect Saturday.
anything could happen
