    If this is an attempt to discourage people from waiting to see these "crap" bands, by all means continue. I prefer not to fight for the front.

    I'm sure that every band at Coachella will draw a crowd, but these are the act that I'll be avoiding, not to call them "crap" necessarily, but I definitely don't have to worry about conflicts from:

    Nickel Creek
    Jack's Mannequin
    Circa Survive
    Fair to Midland
    The Frames
    The Feeling
    Amos Lee
    Julieta Venegas

    that "no list" is most of my "yes list". you know what's also my yes list? the whole fucking poster.

    i'd be happy if i got to see every single act there. it'll be tough to limit my choices. seriously, none of the bands there are all that crappy, otherwise they wouldn't be playing such an amazing festival like coachella. if you want crappy bands, stay home and go to your local bar.

    if you just paid as $500+ to go to coachella, i hope you wanted to see more than 3 bands. i know everyone is entitled to their own opinions, but if i hated so many bands on the lineup, i would've stayed my ass at home, instead of paying a lot of money just so i had the right to get online every night and bitch about the lineup.
    carpe diem.

    You obviously don't realize that the New Pornographers are a supergroup. Id be upset to see them without her but I would be just as happy to see Daniel Bejar with them.

    Why are you even going to Coachella if you dont like any of these bands listed above? Have you seen Anathallo live? Holy shit they are amazing, I was fortunite enough to book them in 2003 and they blew me away. Do you even know who Roky Erickson is? Black Keys are one of the best live performances around right now, you better see them before they break up like every other good band out there.

    I totally agree. I like it when there's bands I don't care to see, it helps alleviate conflicts. Although, we would all like to see every band we love play...

    it's pointless to compare Daft Punk's studio stuff with their live shows. their studio stuff are simply a starting point. it is like their alphabet. only during their live shows can we truly see the beauty and awesomeness of what they have created.

    I liked Circa Survive live but I can't stand their recorded stuff. They were very spacey in a live setting. Can't see it working well in a large venue tho

    It's all opinion. My criteria is that I listened to every band I didn't know and created a no, maybe, yes list. I listened to AT LEAST 7-8 songs per band, and many of them I saw live thanks to YouTube and other sites. I do this every year in order to know who I want to see. Who I want see. More bang for my buck.

    I'm sure I've seen shows that have blown my mind, but someone here would think was crap.

    Here's my Maybe and Yes lists, there's plenty to keep my entertained without wasting a minute on bands I don't like. Didn't say they were crap, just not my style. I won't even be able able to see everyone on my yes list.

    In no particular order.

    Maybe:

    Jesus and Mary Chain
    Interpol
    Bjork (seen her before)
    Red Hot Chili Peppers(seen twice before)
    Yeva
    Willie Nelson
    The Lemonheads
    Rage Against the Machine (seen before)

    Yes:
    Gogol Bordello
    Sonic Youth
    Busdriver
    David Guetta
    Benny Benassi
    Julieta Venegas
    Silversun Pickups
    Comedians of Comedy
    Digitalism
    Stephen Marley/Jr Gong
    Evil Nine
    Peaches
    Peeping Tom
    Tokyo Police Club
    Brazilian Girls
    Jarvis Cocker
    Arctic Monkeys
    Felix Da Housecat
    DJ Shadow
    Faithless
    Andrew Bird
    Cornelius
    DJ Heather
    Mike Relm

    I really wasn't trying to compare the two rather I was trying to make a point about studio productions vs live productions in general using the first comparison that came to my mind.

    Also, does anyone actually see more than 8-12 bands a day anyways?

    For those of you who are on the fence about hip-hop, may I suggest that you AT LEAST check out El-P and Brother Ali. I have a feeling they may change your minds...

    I agree with shotglass 75. For me Kings of Leon are the band that I am most excited about seeing on Saturday. Even if they conflict with Arcade Fire, I will go see Kings of Leon instead. I listen to KOL's 2nd album constantly, and love the rockin' energy of that album. Can't wait to finally see them live!
    Instead of doing a 'NO LIST', I would rather contribute something positive to the board and do a 'YES LIST'. Here goes:
    YES LIST:
    Rage Against the Machine
    Kings of Leon
    Sonic Youth
    Air
    Silversun Pickups
    Peeping Tom
    Willie Nelson
    Red Hot Chili Peppers
    Arcade Fire
    Bjork
    Black Keys
    Peaches

    MAYBE:
    Stephen Marley
    Interpol
    the Good, the Bad, the Queen
    the Roots
    the Lemonheads
    Gillian Welch
    Crowded House
    an electronica act or two (not really my thing, but I'm curious)

    If I get to see the majority of the bands on my 'Yes' list, then my own personal Coachella experience will be worth it; so there is no need for me to complain about the other bands present that I don't want to see. If other people are having a good time watching other bands that I don't listen to/ don't like, then so be it. That will just more room for me to get up front to see Sonic Youth, Kings of Leon, or Willie.
    (Now the real conflict for me is not going to be at this year's Coachella, but at Bonnaroo....the Roo has more of my favorite rock bands playing then Coachella does, and hopefully they won't conflict with one another's set times. But that's a whole other thread.)

    Since you are obviously a RATM and I will assume also a hard rock fan, who exactly are you interested in seeing at Coachella other then RATM?
    Don't get me wrong....RATM are the main reason that I am going to this year's fest; but as a rock music fan, i am also excited to see several of the bands that you have listed as 'CRAP'. So I am just curious what another RATM fan is into seeing at Coachella.

    Go make a Top Ten Great Acts thread and I'll post my list there.

    You can post your Ten Crap Acts list there, too. Be a rebel.

    I'll bet the place will be jumping when they play this number:
