    One Day As A Lion is a project by Rage Against The Machine leader Zack De La Rocha and Mars Volta drummer Jon Theodore. They released a five track EP in 2008 that blends rap, rock and punk to create songs similar to the more deliberate fare on RATM's "Evil Empire" and "The Battle of Los Angeles." Keyboardist Joey Karam of The Locust joins them for live performances.

    They are signed to ANTI- and have played live performances in Eagle Rock, Pomona, and at Fuji Rock. Don't expect to see them in Arizona anytime soon!

    The band's name comes from a graffiti photograph taken by Chicano photographer George Rodriguez in 1970, which contains the text, "It's better to live one day as a lion, than a thousand years as a lamb."

    TOKiMONSTA

    TOKiMONSTA is DJ a local LA native. She just released her first album titled "Midnight Menu" last year. She has classical piano training and has used a lot of this knowledge to create these highly textured songs. According to a bit of research she has been known to use live instruments, percussion, and vinyl. She dabbles in a few different genres, but mostly has a laid back hip-hop sound. It will be a lovely afternoon set.

    "Gamble"

    "The World Is Ours"

    Boys Noize AKA Alex Ridha is a German electronic music composer and DJ. He is known for a hard hitting, fist pumping electro/techno sound. He played at Coachella in 2008 which you can find his set here and it was generally regarded as one of the best Sahara shows of the day. He has two albums: Power and Oi Oi Oi. Both were well received by the electronic music community.

    He is rumored to have a new "live" show but it is unclear if that will consist of a unique visual production, audio production, or both.

    OFF!

    Born from the ashes from the LA punk scene of the 80s, OFF! is working hard to make hardcore punk "cool" and "alive" in Los Angeles again. A fairly new super supergroup fronted by Keith Morris of Black Flag/Circle Jerks fame, OFF!'s songs race through to the finish in under 2 minutes -- but for what the tunes lack in time, they make up for in sheer power; the songs are bitter but reflective, teeming with anger born from frustration. This band kicks ass live -- there's really no other way to put it.

    See. This. Band.

    Good write-up, just a few corrections. As I am in fact, one of those obsessive fans that you mentioned.

    Even though Tyler calls Earl his "little brother", they are not actually siblings (though they might still be related).

    And while Syd is the lone female and produced some beats on Mike G's album, most of the beats are actually made by Tyler and Left Brain. Syd is however the engineer/mixer of every project. Plus, she's a really cute lesbian

    Empire of the Sun

    So, Empire of the Sun is these two guys from Australia. They basically sound like MGMT, but maybe not quite as shitty. It's dancey, pop-synth stuff. Their live show is going to be fuuuuckin nuts though. They're one of those bands that goes way over the top in terms of a stage show and production values.

    Check this out:







    It's gonna be crazy and you prolly shouldn't miss it. Also, take acid.

    Fat Freddy's Drop

    FFD is a seven-piece band from Wellington, New Zealand, whose musical style has been characterised as any combination of dub, reggae, soul, jazz, rhythm and blues, and techno. Originally a jam band formed in the late 1990s by musicians from other bands in Wellington, Fat Freddy’s Drop gradually became its members' sole focus. They are known for their improvised live performances; songs on their studio albums are versions refined over years of playing them live in New Zealand, and on tour abroad.

    I have seen them live once and they are definitely worth checking out if you are at all intrigued. Their shows go back and forth between very chill/groovy to more upbeat and fun/dancey. This is good because they won't bore you to death and they won't tire you out either. At the show I saw, they had no drummer. Just DJ Fitchie who mans the boards, and programs some delicious beats ranging in styles from, reggae, dub to more abstract electronic and DnB type rhythms.

    FFD are very proud of where they come from. They consider the country of New Zealand to be a major, if not the primary influence of the music. They are extremely popular at home, and have expressed their lack of desire to "make it big" in America. This does not mean, however that they aren't looking forward to Coachella. From what I have heard, they have wanted to play this festival for a long time, and can't wait to grace the fields.







    (it should also be noted that from what I've heard, they are not 100% sure they are going to make it to the festival. They are waiting on funds from the NZ government to help them make the trip over... fingers crossed.)

    Foals

    Foals is comprised of five members hailing from Oxford. They currently have two albums under their belt. Their debut titled Antidotes (2008) is a quality dance-punk album and received a lot of commercial success in the UK. Their follow-up album called Total Life Forever (2010) departs a bit from their original sound, but feels more personal. They are known for a strong live performance.

    From Antidotes
    Balloons


    Cassius


    From Total Life Forever
    Spanish Sahara
    This song is just beautiful and builds so nicely. This is the reason why I enjoy the second album so much because of the raw emotion that some of the tracks have.

    The Felice Brothers

    Alright. These 2 brothers and a couple other dudes hail from the Catskill Mountains. Ian, the raspy singer sounds somewhat like Bob Dylan. They mostly sing about drugs and being poor and going to jail in a fun upbeat folky or sometimes somber way. They got their start playing in the NYC subway. It's disappointing that the 3rd brother, Simone, is no longer with the band. If you get to make it to their set, good times will be had. Don't forget your whiskey.

    Phantogram

    Phantogram is a duo from Saratoga Springs, New York. Though recently, they have added a live drummer to their performances. Last year their debut album Eyelid Movies was released. Their sound is a mixture of trip-hop and psychedelic pop. Their single "Mouthful of Diamonds" was shown on coachella.com.

    *This one was hard for me because I pretty much love every song on this album.

    Gribbz, this thread is going great so far. I do feel pretty strong that it would be easier to navigate and research the artists for people if they were in alphabetical order on the first post. So, I took the liberty of doing it for you. Keeping up with it after shouldn't be too hard.

    Goodie on this thread.

    I'll take City and Colour. More to come later.

    Do you remember the awful Canadian metal band Alexisonfire? Me too / neither. Well, this is their lead singer's solo folk...ish outfit. He tours with a band and will be VERY early in the day on Friday. He has haunting vocals and it will be something you can relax to in a tent with minimal heat, dancing and exhaustion.

    Oh nobody's done Elbow. Alrighty then.

    Elbow.

    British alt rock. New album coming out in March. These guys are legends in the UK and have been vocally praised by Radiohead and John Cale. Guy Garvey's their lead singer, if you've never listened to Elbow you'll recognize him off the latest Massive Attack album. All of their albums are good but I'd start with Leaders of the Free World and The Seldom Seen Kid. Can. not. wait.
