    Default Tame Impala For Coachella 2011

    Just heard these guys for the first time and loved their sound. From Perth, Australia. Nice blurb in Spin stating the following

    Influences:
    "60's and 70's rock like Hendrix, Zeppelin, and The Groundhogs; the Chemical Brothers are in there too"

    Sound like "Psychedelic rock played with electronic music feel.
    Latest release: Innerspeaker

    Blah! I made a thread for them http://www.coachella.com/forum/showt...ht=tame+impala

    But 2 threads is far better than 1. I first heard them from Soulwax's 'Part of the NYE never dies" mix...good stuff.

    These guys were a late add/replacement at Sasquatch (because they were touring with MGMT). I knew nothing about them and they were awesome live. I totally support this.

    He started a general thread in the Music Lounge section, saying nothing about wanting them at Coachella next year, there's a difference. And yes, I think they'd be great at Coachella!

    I am going to see them at Coachella just so I can say I saw them in the US. It will be so weird to see a local band that I've been seeing at local haunts for years playing on a big stage in another country.

    I saw them about 2 years ago open up for You Am I and they were terrible....BUT, they have VASTLY improved to be a really good live band.

    So last night the lead singer kept talking about what an honor it was and how excited they were to be in San Francisco. Then, he said, "by the looks of things, we'll be back here pretty soon."

    I was skeptical about their live show, but by all recent accounts they have been amazing.
