Thread: More to be added

  1. #1

    Default More to be added

    There are only about 107 bands there, and on average there are about 80 or so bands a day at Coachella....do the math.

    What the hell happened to The Police and QOTSA? Would they really have the presale password "roxanne" if they weren't coming?

    I'm really hoping for more here, frankly because, I hate to say it, there is a lot of crap. Not to say there aren't a lot of great bands coming, but Nickel Creek? Damian Rice? Regina? Kings of Leon? Did the promoters of Lilith Fair or NME take part in this?

    over and over again they've said the roxanne thing was a joke...

    are you fucking tarded... regina spektor happens to be one of the best female solo musicians, possibly ever.

    as posted in another thread, I beleive the organizers were thinking of going to a more spread out schedule ... less overlaps and conflicts ... and we don't know when each day starts ...

    this could be 98% done ... but who knows.

    Am I "fucking 'tarded"? No. No I'm not. I also didn't say Regina was a terrible artist, neither is Damian Rice, but they are a bit light rock for Coachella. I wouldn't go so far as to say she is one of the best solo musicians ever. That is a gross overstatement.

    Apparently you haven't paid much attention to teh lineups over the past four years.

    Whoa whoa, Coachella's never had 80 bands a day, it's usually somewhere between 40 and 50. I'm with scoop49er in thinking that it'll be around 120, maybe upwards of 130. Pitchfork kinda confirmed this suspicion by dubbing what has been released thus far as the "preliminary" lineup. The Police? Smashing Pumpkins? Not gonna happen. But I could see bands as big as Modest Mouse or QOTSA still get announced. And I don't think we've heard the last of the Gwen Stefani chatter. Remember, Kanye, Daft Punk and Madonna were all added later last year.

    Saturday so far looks really weak to me. I hope they add some more to Saturday--or I need to get into more of those bands.

    man man would be cool. I'd like to see Subtle or the Liars added in. And while I'm dreaming. The Knife would be awesome.

    but mostly, I'd love to see the liars.

    Yeah...i'm a little confused by the Decemberists being on the second line...I'm assuming more will come. Or maybe I'm just not paying attention and don't realize how popular they are.

    the decemberists are pretty huge. not too big on them, but they put on a damn good show. I'm more surprised about the Arctic Monkeys on the second line, am I the only person that thinks they are rehashed garbage?

    I think we'll see a few more 'big' acts named... Daft Punk, Massive Attack, Kanye West, Madonna all got added in March of last year. DP and MA's sets were a great addition to the lineup... hopefully we can get a few more added in the next couple months. I just hope no Smashing Pumpkins. THE WORST live band I've ever seen, and the only band I've ever walked out on after 3 songs. Billy Corgan just plain sucks ass live.

    my life would be complete if Portishead played this years Coachella.


    The Knife, The Faint and Muse wouldn't be so bad either.

    how can you judge a whole performance from three songs?

    you must have caught them on a bad night because every time i've seen them they were beyond stellar. i've been to hundreds of rock shows, and the pumpkins are very very high on the list. billy corgan is an excellent live musician, even with zwan he was beyond impressive.

    they will not be playing, so don't worry about it.

    As of this morning, my sources are STILL telling me that the POLICE is a go.

    They've not worked out Coachella details as an ABSOLUTE, but the band IS reuniting, and Coachella is on the table as an option.

    Fire away, naysayers.

    Pretty sure that was 2005 when they canceled. Either way, I'd love Doves to be there as well.

    I am NOT Scott Tenneman.

    P.S. I posted this thread after KROQ announced some of the lineup earlier....then the Jesus and Mary Chain happened.

    But seriously, why the James Blunts and Howie Days every year? Who goes to these sets?
    I know Damian and Regina are better, but at 105 degrees I don't want to hear "he breaks my hea-a-ar-ar-ar-ar-art".....maybe in an air conditioned theater with seats. Unless they play in the evening...I'd rather hear acts not played on the local radio station "now on shuffle"
