Thread: Amazing line up but...

  1. #1

    Default Amazing line up but...

    There are some major acts I thought would show up that didn't. Namely:
    Modest Mouse
    The Shins
    Bright Eyes
    Sufjan Stevens
    Liars
    Clap Your Hands
    The Thermals
    Islands
    Thom Yorke (thought it'd be great to hear the Eraser in the Sahara)

    Why the hell would you want a repeat of the Editors? They'd just play the same fucking songs again from their one album. And Thom Yorke in the Sahara? Jack said it best when you people want the dance tent to be a punch of tall guys with tucked in plaid shirts scratching their beards, crimeny.

    I am surprised that Modest Mouse and the Shins won't be there. More than a little strange, but there's still time for them to be added.

    They only thing disapointing about the TVOTR set last year were all the cross armed hipsters standing there looking as if they would rather be eating a sh*t sandwich then to have to watch the band.

    Let us know when you find some real major acts to fill in..

    yeah it was rumored smashing pumpkins were going to be there because they're expecting their reunion album release in march. it would have been amazing if they would have reunited on stage at coachella.

    im satisfied with the line-up though

    Default Re: Amazing line up but...

    where is fatboy slim, underworld or daft punk? i am not complaining at all, i think the line up is the best yet! but one of these as a late add would be awesome!

    Yeah... i guess not "major" as far as top billing or anything...but important to me.

    I was pleasantly surprised to find the Black Keys, Gogol Bordello and PB&J though!

    Actually f that... the acts I listed are making the best and most important music in the world right now. They are definitely "real major acts"

  17. #17

    Default Re: Amazing line up but...

    i'd hardly say modest mouse is still making important music and isaac is a douchenozzle, he pulls madonna at coachella diva moves at small venues... fuck him.

    the smashing pumpkins album will not be out in march and they are not ready to play

    the killers could easily take the place of rhcp as crappy huge band that will distract much of the crowd from other bands playing at the same time.

    I'm suprised about:

    The Hold Steady
    Cold War Kids
    Beirut
    Band of Horses

    But once again, they still are going to be adding names to the line up.

    Band of Horses said they couldn't make it.

    So it's uncool to like the Killers now? Is it because they are popular? I really hate popular bands.

    Oh man!!! MUSE!!! How could I have forgotten Muse?? They are popular too though so I don't know if it would go over too well because apparently popular bands aren't welcome at Coachella.

    amazing lineup but...

    it would be better with the police!

    and since we are bitching and moaning:

    im a little dissapointed by how they are starting to recycle headliners so soon. chillis were great back in the day, but now they are a ballad band, and they just headlined 4 years ago. not that soon i guess, but still. would be nice to have some better, fresher headliners in place of them, like the police!

    underworld
    pearl jam
    modest mouse
    muse
    the killers
    portishead

    would all be cool too.

    Cool Re: Amazing line up but...

    We need at least 10 of the following for Coachella to be the best of the eclectic music festivals:

    400 Blows
    The Shins
    The Locust
    Om
    Ex Models
    Deftones
    Oneida
    Wolf Eyes
    Liars
    Boris
    TV on the Radio
    Magik Markers
    The Mars Volta
    Animal Collective
    Portishead
    Anticon
    Slayer
    Antony and the Johnsons
    The Stooges
    Prince
    Lightning Bolt
    Sunn O)))
    Jaga Jazzist
    Mastodon
    Serena Maneesh
    Black Dice
    Roxy Music
    Scott Walker
    Converge
    The Knife

    There is always too much crappy Brit-Pop and Indie Rock at Coachella...GV should pay attention more to the ATP Festival Line-Ups. A lot of these acts would be relatively cheap to book, too.
