    Every dullard on the facebook page wants nothing but the bands that played the last two years, especially MGMT, plus lots of bro acts.

    Saul Williams has a new album coming out. He's touring Europe until the end of Nov, seems like a possibility. Saw him once a few years ago and he put on an excellent show (opening for les claypool). I would love to see him rock a tent.

    Reality is they have to have HUGE headline acts that will pull tickets for 2 weekends....that's no easy feat.

    Coachella was at the point it didn't matter a ton who the headline acts were...it was a guarantee sell out.

    I for one am very interested to see how this year works itself out.

    p.s. Fuck the group No Doubt as a headline act

    People keep saying that Coachella needs HUGE acts in order to sell out the two weekends. Nothing more false has ever been said. Coachella will sell out no matter who is placed in the headlining spot unless the headliners are total disasters (can't think of an example at this point). But, Weekend 1 has already sold over 70% of tickets through pre-sale alone and Weekend 2 was pretty close behind. If that many have been sold without any word on a line-up, a sell-out will occur with a lineup regardless of the "amazingness" of the headliners.

    And does that guarantee Girls will be at Coachella on Sunday the 15th? Or guarantee they won't be there cause they will be on the east coast the 1st half of April?

    Interesting. Not familiar with much of their output, but I dig this:

    I'm kinda digging the stuff on her facebook page as well.

    I'd be so fucking giddy to see Edie Brickell at Coachella. That was the first concert I ever went to back in 1991 (not counting Alice Cooper at the state fair.) In fact, it was on 4/21. Maybe I can see her again on the 21st anniversary of that date. Sounds like a nice mellow Saturday afternoon. Not sure she'd be much of a draw, though. Most people only know the one song.

    On another note... I recently had the chance to ask Thomas Dolby if he would be at Coachella as part of his planned 2012 tour around his new album, which is his first in 20 years. He said something about possibly "hosting a tent" at Coachella. Maybe we'll see a new approach to the way the festival is curated next year. He is certainly qualified. He was a pioneer of 80's synthpop and has been the music director for the TED conference, when not busy inventing music hardware and software in Silicon Valley since he made his last album and retired from the recording industry. He has several more contemporary artists in guest spots on the new record, including Imogen Heap, who I'd love to see on stage with him. His show was interesting, but very minimal. I'd be totally down to see what he can do with a full band.

    It will be interesting to see what comes of that!

    Thomas Dolby hosting a tent at Coachella 12. Either he is high out of his mind or Goldenvoice is fucking with ours.

    I was a bit surprised by his answer, but once I researched him a bit it made more sense. His involvement with TED is what makes me think he could actually be for real. I don't think he has much indie cred these days, since no one born in the 80s is likely to have a clue who he is and most of us Gen X'ers only know one song (thanks to MTV) which is pretty cheesy at best. However, my boyfriend is in his mid 40s and a total new-wave dork and was REALLY excited about seeing him live. (His fantasy Coachella acts are Eno and Talking Heads)

    Here's his bio on the TED site:
    http://www.ted.com/speakers/thomas_dolby.html

    I'm not losing any sleep over it either way, I just thought I'd pass along what he said to me, as it seems pretty damn relevant here
