    Default Madness 2012

    Madness is such a legendary band. I have never had the chance to see them live. This will be a highlight for Coachella 2012. Is it the entire original lineup?

    So happy that Madness is playing! After seeing The Specials in 2010 I've hoped they would make an appearance one year. I hope Goldenvoice continues to book these classic 2-Tone ska bands

    They will be better than The Specials.
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    haha Ken you don't have to put "2012" after every band you're starting a thread for if they're already on the lineup.
    7/23 - Fuzz - Troubadour (?)
    7/30 - Shabazz Palaces - Roxy (?)
    7/31 - Hamilton Leithauser - Echo (?)
    8/01 - Ceremony/Nothing - Roxy (?)
    8/06 - Herbie Hancock - Hollywood Bowl (?)

    I immediately thought of you, Rage. Glad to see them on the lineup (again).

    Any idea what happened that year? They did all of a sudden disappear from the lineup. It was fucking depressing. I never heard anything more about it. Here's hoping it doesn't happen again!

    When the Specials played, one original member was missing. I wonder if Madness will have all its original members.

    So excited for this set. I hope that they get the same slot The Specials got in 2010.

    Madness causes crowd happiness, not Todd Solondz style "Happiness".

    The Aquabats are not Coachella material, I only saw them because I was waiting for bands after them at the ssame stage. The only thing I liked about the Aquabats last year is that Danny DeVito made a guest appearance. Does anyone have a photo of that?

    I really sincerely hope not. The Specials were fantastic... but it was so hot. I, and everyone around me, danced like a maniac... but the set would been much better at night on the outdoor theatre. Plus, I dont want to deal with Arctic Monkeys fans who have never heard of Madness before. Madness really should play the outdoor at night and I believe they will.

    Bedders doesn't play bass anymore, but at least his bass lines will be there.

    I hope we get some flying sax action

    Do people even skank without trying to be ironic anymore? (I would be the guy that scares everyone with his enthusiasm if a skank pit happened btw)

    When The Specials played a lot of people by me were skanking, just not in pit form

    I absolutely love ska, so in no way am I trying to be ironic when I'm skanking. It's just fun.
