    I heard they are awful live but on the hand i've heard they are really good live? Are they inconsistent or what?

    Who cares about if they play "the hits" or not, I've seen plenty of bands of whom I knew exactly 0 songs and they blew me away. Their music is decent but MGMT is a horrible live act, period.

    If being horrible is standing there and playing their music, then yes, they're the worst. They sound awesome and their visuals distract you from Andrew not being some Bruce Springsteen type front man.

    Here's a vid of the last time I saw them. I enjoyed.

    Maybe I'm in the minority, but I'm excited for this set. Hoping for something along the lines of:

    Brian Eno
    Cool Song No. 2
    Alien Days
    I Found A Whistle
    Future Reflections
    Mystery Disease
    Time to Pretend
    Plenty of Girls in the Sea
    Electric Feel
    Congratulations/Siberian Breaks

    And if the set is longer, Flash Delirium and The Youth would be nice.

    I watch that video and I see the same shit that Foxygen, Tame Impala and countless other bands do live. It's a solid set, we all know MGMT aren't going to be on the same level as MMJ. It seems to me that MGMT have become an easy target.

    I really honestly wish they would just come out and play the Oracular CD and mime as if they're playing instruments or singing. I would fucking love that. Goddamn that album is still gorgeous.

    This basically. It is a shame that Andrew hasn't figured out how to be a performer on stage. At this point it's doubtful he even cares.

    The sucked at FYF. Put the kids back in the oven because they're not ready for the big time.

    Id be happy if they broke up and did side projects for the next decade instead. Their reunion would be a big deal.

    I've heard their pretty awful live from a lot of people. I'll check them out if there aren't any conflicts.

    It seems like I'm a minority here but I am looking forward to seeing MGMT. They will most likely play earlier in the day maybe even in a tent and besides the decent amount of people who show up solely for Oracular songs, the crowd shouldn't be over packed so getting a great spot close up shouldn't be a problem. I expect a decent set with a mixture of the new off-color trippy stuff as well as some old classics.. I can't be the only one?

    I'm a sucker for them, too. They're not going to play a tent or early in the day.

    On what stage and time do you think seems logical for them to play this year?

    If they're on the main, between 5-8. If they're on the Outdoor, somewhere after 8. In 2010 they played 8:50-9:40 on the Outdoor and had a pretty big crowd.

    It seems the ppl who think they're horrible live only want them to play those 3 hits from 6 years ago that sounded like nothing else on the album. At this point I think the ppl who think they suck live just have an idealized version of the band in their head and the band has never nor will have be a dancey synth band, they just had a few songs that were like that. The band has settled into a fun psychedelic pop niche that they've been able to do very well live IMO. I really liked their 2010 performance, but that's also b/c I didn't care to hear "Kids" (mostly b/c that song became so overplayed that I was sick of it) and loved how stuff off their 2nd album sounded (To me a lot stronger album than their first). I'd rather they play a tent and extremely hope that ppl who only want to hear "Kids" stay as far as away as possible b/c bitch don't kill my vibe

    MGMT don't suck live because of their refusal to play the hits. Most of us are fine with Radiohead skipping "Creep".

    No, MGMT suck live because they look like they don't give a shit on stage, play like they're high as a kite, and are just showing up for an hour for another paycheck.

    I lol'ed.

    On the real though, I've never seen them live so I'm pretty anxious to see how they do. Hopefully we'll get to hear this gem form Oracular.

    Coachella '13 W1, '14 W2
    That is pretty delicious right there.

    Don't worry guys, you'll enjoy them. I hope they bring back that '90s looking lobster alien from FYF.

    Even if Creep had commercial success, I would have a hard time saying it's one of their 10 best songs. Probably not even in the top 15.
