Thread: Bon Iver vs Flying Lotus vs GY!BE vs Jeff Mangum

  1. #1

    Default Bon Iver vs Flying Lotus vs GY!BE vs Jeff Mangum

    HYPOTHETICAL SITUATION: It's Tuesday, April 10th and the set times have just been released. GV fucks up and puts Bon Iver on the Main, Jeff Mangum on the Outdoor, GY!BE in the Gobi, and Flying Lotus in the Sahara, all starting at 9:30 p.m. and ending at 10:45 p.m., right before Radiohead closes out the Main at 11:00.

    Who are you watching and why?


    P.S. I know the ridiculousness of the hypothetical situation, I know the ridiculousness of discussing conflicts before time are released, and I know the ridiculousness of having Flylo in the Sahara, so STFU.

    Weekend 1 - Godspeed, only because I haven't seen them before, and saw Bon Iver only a few months ago. Weekend 2 - probably Bon Iver, unless everyone raves about Mangum so much, I feel like I can't miss him twice.

    Flying Lotus, my type of music out of the bunch.

    One of two scenarios will unfold

    Scenario A.
    I watch Flying Lotus and then rush over to GY!BE and watch a few minutes and ultimately be bored after the high that is Flying Lotus and rush over to the Main in time to elbow my way thru slackjawed couples swaying to Bon Iver and get a decent spot for Radiohead.

    Scenario B.
    I watch the GY!BE and have an existential breakdown, make my way to my tent to call it a night and fall asleep in the fetal position as 'Karma Police' is faintly heard in the distance.
    I would never want to belong to any club that would have someone like me for a member...

    Jeff Mangum.

    1. I live in L.A. and will probably be seeing Flying Lotus at least three times during 2012.
    2. Bon Iver has a long career ahead of them and seeing them at a future date is not a big deal.
    3. Godspeed You! Black Emperor would be depressing to miss but at the end of the day, I listen to NMH much more.

    Weekend 1 Flying Lotus because he's debuting his new album. Weekend 2 split time between Mangum and Godspeed.

    weekend one: half of Bon Iver's set, half of Jeff Mangums set
    weekend two: half of Godspeeds set, half of FlyLos set.

    maybe a little more of Godspeeds on the second weekend though, being that I've seen FlyLo plenty already.

    Not into any of these artists other than Flylo so I hope that's who's conflicting with him

    Some combo of this as well. Most likely full Mangum or Godspeed and then split time between the other two.

    I guess a lot of people that are voting for Flying Lotus don't live in LA? I think he's great, but will probably have more chances to see him throughout the year. I'm surprised he's so close to Jeff Mangum in the voting.

    I live in LA too and I know we have many opportunities to see him at Low End Theory, etc. But his Coachella 2010 performance was incredible, and he'll be debuting his new album this year. I think this will trumph any show that he would usually put on.

    I'm not missing Mangum, for anyone. Hoping there's no Bon Iver/Jeff Mangum conflict, I've never seen Bon Iver before.

    They are good artists, but I'd rather see FL/Iver.

    ^Me as well. I might even take Flying Lotus over Radiohead if the conflict arose. Radiohead is great and all, but I'll take FlyLo unveiling a new album/live show.
