    Default Kaiser Chiefs

    I saw the Kaiser Chiefs some years back, and they put on an amazing performace. They have been off the radar for a while, but I am sure they will be quite good at Coachella. Gotta give a shout out to any awesome band from the UK.

    surprised they are so low billed. if only they had one single hit from the 90's they could be on the second line like Mazzy Star.

    "I Predict a Riot" was a hit, but that was in the early 2000s.

    Yikes, that's pretty disheartening to see. I'm still glad I get to watch them live though. It's been ages since I've really listened to them but Everyday I Love You Less and Less, I Predict a Riot and Ruby are some awesome tunes.

    Kroqken - I think he got that - he was being sarcastic saying if they ONLY had ONE hit from the 1990's like Mazzy Star did - then they could be billed on the 2nd line.

    They're pretty big over here but personally not much of a fan. Saw them over christmas as they headlined a show with some other bands I really wanted to see and I have to admit they put on a good show live. They are good at what they do, rowdy indie/rock I suppose. Be interesting to see where they end up being so low billed but I guess they are bigger in the UK and their new album didn't exactly take the world by storm (though the way it was sold went someway to doing so!)

    I never really paid attention to these guys, but I've been listening to them today, and they are quickly rising in my priority list.

    I'd love to see them if they were on Friday or Sunday, but currently they are my #13 band on the Over-crowded Saturday. I doubt there won't be a conflict pulling me to another stage.

    I was obsessed with these guys back in 04-07, Haven't really followed them as recently, and only luke warm on their newest album. But they are awesome live. Super high energy. I know they played the outdoor midday in 07, I wonder will they rank for main this time or maybe Mojave?

    I'll probably check them out at least one of the weekends.... for old times sake. lol

    Kaiser Chiefs - SXSW 2012 - I predict a riot @ FILTER Magazine's Showdown at Cedar Street

    The video was made by my girlfriend who is only 5'2 so sorry about that

    (i know there is a sx video area but here it is in here..)



    I didn't get any video of new tracks (was just gf on her iphone) but they played two new cuts, new stuff sounded more 80s/synth-y but was good, they played about 30 minutes, the lead singer came into the crowd on the shoulders of some big guy in the front, slid down the rail after chugging a beer, was a good show..

    bye bye important band member (the drummer)

    Via twitter: We can confirm that Nick has decided not to be in the band any more and that our show at Reading Festival in August was his last as a member of Kaiser Chiefs. Nick tweeted earlier, “I can confirm I have left Kaiser Chiefs after 15 spectacular years. I'm moving on. I wish the band the very best."
