    Thumbs up BEST Visual Set Ups for 2011

    This thread last year helped me see some really cool shows I wouldn't have seen otherwise.
    So what will be some of the best visual performances this year?

    I know The Chemical Brothers and Kanye West will have some grand set-up, and anyone teaming up with the Creators Project (Animal Collective and Interpol are the only confirmed bands I know so far).
    But what about some other acts that will put on a really cool live show?

    Apparently Magnetic Man has a cube of some sort.

    And Shpongle has a setup.

    I really hope we get the "full setup" from the Chem bros. Ive seen some vids on youtube of recent shows where they didnt have the full setup with that huge LED cylinder. Dont know what the reason for that was. Maybe the venue couldnt fit it. Whatever the case we better get the full setup at Coachella. That thing looks so badass. If it means putting the on the main stage then so be it.

    Trentemoller (fuck you and little slashed o Denmark) should have an epic setup right? The video that GV posted a while ago was out of this world

    Anyone remember the Sahara Tent thread where a guy was posting about talking to Paul T, and about them having some 3-D visuals. Then a YTube vid was posted using the same thing on buildings. Looked pretty amazing

    It seems like everyone and their mothers have visual set-ups now.
    Off the top of my head:
    chemical brothers
    nosaj thing
    12th planet (debuted at TAO)
    sasha
    duck sauce (inflatable duck! seen it!)
    boys noize
    I believe animal collective has some sort of visual performance
    shpongle
    magnetic man
    crystal castles (strobe led bars and infinite amount of fog)
    but the most ENERGETIC set will be OFWGKTA. Tyler is going to crush peoples skulls with his words. girls will be punched in the face.

    It's going to have ALL OF THE LIGHTS.




    Empire of The Sun and Bloody Beetroots come to mind for more sahara acts that will be cool visually.

    The only thing Boys Noize announced is that he is going to have a new "live" show. He has said absolutely nothing about visuals; everyone just hears "new" and "live" and "show" and assumes he will have some sort of crazy visual set up. The only thing it means, from what I've gleaned so far is that he will not be using CDJs, but rather, he will be using other technologies and playing solely his own material.

    There will be visuals, because it will be in the Sahara and the Creator's Project has collaborated with how the tent will be set up (I think at their conference they mentioned that the dude who made the cubitron is involved), but I don't think there is any reason to believe that Boys Noize is unveiling his own light show to accompany his performance.

    Although Boys Noize isn't being mentioned in the Creators Project's press releases about Coachella, he has done something with them in some capacity.

    http://thecreatorsproject.com/creators/boys-noize

    I think it's odd that they would create a page for him solely for the interview. Wouldn't it be great if when he jokingly said that his "live" show would have more lights than anyone elses, he actually meant it? With the Creators Project redesigning the Sahara, there is a very slight chance he could have the entire tent under his fingertips. Probably wishful thinking though

    In a recent interview he did (I think the link is in the Boys Noize thread, but Im too lazy to find it), he stated that he was against the idea of having crazy light shows. He doesnt like the idea of them detracting from the most important thing, the music. The guy is a purist

    that was nuts.. too bad we can't get something like that from him at coachella but I guess his popularity just isn't the same around here.

    Glasser at a minimum is gonna have some funky costumes I feel like. Anything crazier will probably depend on night or day. Cee-lo is probably the same way.

    Animal Collective's Creators Project thing is probably what I'm most excited for. And Kanye is also gonna bring some awesome for sure.

    Forget that I had seen Empire of the Sun this past summer at OSL. Cool set up but I doubt I will go out of my way to see them again

    the aquabats are guaranteed to produce some crazy movie that plays in the background, plus monsters and pyrotechnics galore.
    My girlfriend looks a little bit like Charlize Theron... and a lot like Dog the Bounty Hunter.
