    You can post your Ten Crap Acts list there, too. Be a rebel.
    There's already been a hundred topics for that sort of list.

    Saw Blonde Redhead open for interpol a while back, didn't go so well. Basically the only reason I didn't flee the theater with my hands over my ears was the fact that interpol was headlining and there was no re-entry. In brief, Blonde Redhead was awful live and I'll be avoiding that stage like the plague.

    I only spent $199.00 and I have at least 71 other acts to see. Pretty wise investment actually.

    Try reading all of the posts in a thread.

    2. Red Hot Chili Peppers (snooooozzzeeeee)
    3. Vagina Spector, Amy Wine House, Tilly and the Wall (why not get some good female acts like Ani DiFranco, Tori Amos or Beth Orton)
    4. Tiesto (#2 DJ in the world?? based on your 14 year old candy raving sister)
    5. Kings of Leon (some of the most boring rock around, what are people hearing?)
    6. Arctic Monkeys (amazing what hype will do to your band)
    7. DJ Heather (how the hell did she get on this bill? Saw her open for Ferry Corsten, yeah she is so freekin hot, but so not impressed with her DJ'ing)
    8. Peaches (Will do alot to avoid this trainwreck)
    9. VNV Nation (Synthy goth pop that I will avoid)
    10. Rage Against the Machine (Seen em twice, loved em back in the early 90's, don't see what all the hype is about?? How many times can you listen to Bulls on Parade or Killing in the Name. yawn..)

    Bands/DJ's that are going to blow my mind Hot Chip, SoulWax, Junior Boys, Evil Nine, Travis, The Rapture, Jarvis Cocker, Interpol, and Gogol Bordello.

    Hate to burst the bubble of all the Kings of Leon supporters, but they truly are horrible live. When they opened for Bob Dylan in San Diego, they were so bland and boring that they almost put me to sleep. I was really looking forward to seeing them then, but the disappointed me.
    That having been said:

    Kings of Leon
    Against Me!
    Fountains of Wayne
    Nickel Creek
    Ratatat

    Tiesto is the #3 DJ in the world.
    http://www.djmag.com/index.php?op=top_100&story=2006

    He was also the #1 from 2002 until 2004. He's my favorite DJ, and I've seen him numerous times including at Coachella.

    There's no doubt in my mind that he should not be considered a Main Stage act though. Even when he was #1 he wouldn't have filled the main stage.

    Wow. You are clever. B-dork instead of Bjork. You are so fucking clever. OH! and Vagina Spektor haha! You said "Vagina" instead of "Regina" haha. Grow the fuck up. You have a right to an opinion of who you dont like... but dont be an immature little bitch about it. And whats the big deal about RATM? Well personaly, its the fact that I never got the chance to see them live. And this may very well be my only chance (besides their other 3 shows). However, I get to see thier first show!
    I will agree with you on a couple things though. Arctic Monkeys are totaly hype. They actually arent talented at all. Also, the Gogol Bordello are gonna blow peoples minds.

    Gogol Bordello sucks. They are only getting hype because the chick is dating Frodo.

    Hmmm rather than making a "bands that I will be avoiding" list, I think i'll just make a list of bands that i'll make an effort to see, and any bands that I didnt list are bands that I have no real interest in and might end up watching randomly.

    People I want to see:
    RATM
    Bjork
    Arcade Fire
    LCD Soundsystem
    Tiesto
    Paul Van Dyk
    Girl Talk
    Brazilian Girls
    The Roots
    Hot Chip
    Air
    Faithless
    Benny Benassi
    DJ Shadow
    Infected Mushroom
    MSTRKRFT

    All of those people I would make an effort to see.

    If I had to name one band that I will avoid, it would be Against Me. I've never listened to them, but I do know they've played on Warp Tour, and that's enough to scare me away.

    Dude don't hate on Konono No 1, there are from the f-ing Congo, it's hard enough to get food there let alone be in a band. I didn't like kings of Leon at first either, but they are growing on me and I have found some really good songs. Grizzly bear is great also. Whoever made that list with like half the bands on there is wasting there money as they aren't really meant for Coachella and should have not bought a ticket and let somebody more deserving go in their place.

    Then your missing out. I will admit thier new stuff isnt that great. But listen to ther old acoustic/folk/punk stuff. Its really different and engaging. Thier new stuff sounds like... nothing special to say the least. I hope they play thier old stuff this year. Basically, I will see Against Me! barring any major conflicts... or if they have an acoustic guitar in thier hands.
