    Default Janelle Monae for 2012

    She has put out one of the best reviewed albums this year. She would tear up the Outdoor Theater (even though a Gobi spot is more likely, unfortunately).

    Seriously, I want this on the Polo Fields:

    There always seems to be a band/artist that's just blowin up around the time of a certain year's fest, or for some reason doesn't get booked, and they play the Coachella a year after.

    Case in point- Arctic Monkeys in 06, but played in 07
    The Ting Tings in 08, but played 09
    Janelle Monae was just starting to gain some traction in April... so why not next year?

    She would be great for Coachella. Consider it confirmed.

    I saw her play at at a tiny bar in London recently, and she was amazing. Coachella always tends to put artists on at weird stages (case in point: Florence in the Gobi tent this year/B.O.B on the main stage).

    They need to book Of Montreal as well, so she can perform twice.

    Preferred when her hair was like this:


    Also, I hadn't seen this video until tonight, but this brings back memories of my old family reunions. Live music and dancing and shit like this going on, sans the suits.

    I think she's worthy of the main stage, and not the crappy early afternoon spot.
    For 2011, more music that sounds like it would play on the Thailand stage of Street Fighter II.

    I got this CD earlier in the year, but didn't give it enough time. I'm going to go back and give it some more attention.

    I like the fact that both (Mayer Hawthorne & the County/Janelle) embrace an older style of music which is also obviously represented by their attire and performances.

    LOOK AT THIS SHIT

    The only reasons I see something of this caliber missing from the lineup this year are she wanted too much, didn't want a shitty 40 minute set before sunset (it blew my mind how Phantogram got an unnecessarily late spot), or GV dropped the fucking ball.

    This needs to happen for 2012.
    She should have a new album out sometime soon, so I wouldn't be surprised.
