    Default This Sucks!!!!

    Interpol and Sonic youth on Friday??? wtf?

    I wanted to go to atleast 2 days this year, but theres only like 5 bands i want to see each day, its not worth all that money. I know GV does it on purpose to even out the bands & crowds per day but seriously This Sucks!!!

    I know what you mean (except Sonic Youth and Interpol in the same day is an incentive for me). I'm not too inclined to go to the other two days, even if I've never seen the other two headliners before.

    I figure I've already met Zach anyway. That made me happy, hehe.

    All three days are so insanely well populated with good to great bands. It'll be hard to make choices.
    That's the only part that sucks. It's gonna be too damn good.

    There are maybe 8-12 bands each day that I know and am excited to see, but that's totally enough to make a ticket worth it, in my opinion.

    Plus, part of what makes Coachella so awesome for me is the whole discovery process where I check out all the bands that I don't know from each day, and find new favorites.

    Im probaly going to saturday for sure, because of all 3 days it has the most bands i want to see.(if your gonna spend $80 it might as be worth it)

    I wanted to go to atleast 2days but other than Interpol on friday and Air on sunday theres nothing else that really grabs my attention any of the other days.

    That's enough to give me a general idea. SY and Interpol are both good, but there are so many acts that would draw a wide and varied crowd on the other two days. Go listen to Konono No. 1 and then we'll talk.

    BMack,

    you don't know what I listen to, so I wouldn't be so quick to make that judgment.

    Also I thought the hipsters didn't like the Shins anymore.

    keep in mind, you'll probably only see 10 or so bands each day anyway. there's only so much time in a day.

    Personally, I think the lineup is really good this year. Can't help but think we're missing a headliner or two on Saturday, though. No 'reunion' band on Saturday, and only 2 headliners, really.

    They're gonna be adding more acts, without a doubt. Expect at least one more big electronic act (i'm hoping for Underworld or the Orb, possibly Basement Jaxx) and a few more top-tier acts.

    Jenga, take the time to research the bands. You will like more than you think.

    Bjork by herself is worth the price

    but even the bands you've never heard of may be the greatest thing you've ever heard if you happen to stop by their stage

    the names you know bring you the first time.....the names you don't keep you coming back


    p.s. if you have Sirius satellite radio, listen to left of center for a couple of hours and you'll probably hear a song from 80% of the lineup

    It's not realistic to plan on seeing more than 8-10 bands a day, otherwise you'll spend most of your day walking and not listening. So, to say there are only 6 bands a day you want to see, that's perfect! 6 no-brainers plus two or three new bands each day. Sounds about right to me.

    No, I've stopped listening to new underground music since I heard Trail of Dead. You're talking to an ex employee of Tower, I took this crap home by the handfulls.

    I hear it, I want to go see the Red Hot Chili Peppers beacuse they are one of my favorite bands. But I also really want to see Damian Marley, Interpol, Peeping Tom... and a bunch of other bands from the first day. But I only really want to go for the last 2 days. UGGH I dont wanna spend $250.00 on tickets, and then camping fees... man this is going to burn a hole in my pocket. Something seriously has to be done about the ticket prices.
