    Why are the XX being thrown around as potential Saturday headliners, and not Sunday? Am I missing something?

    I think people are throwing around the idea of The XX headlining Sat of TIMF because the new album is supposed to be more dancey, according to interviews: http://pitchfork.com/features/update/8855-the-xx/

    I think they would be better suited to Sunday, or the second to last spot on Saturday, but that's just my opinion, we shall see when this lineup comes out(hopefully soon?)

    it's tonight. far too early to have any bearing on TI.

    besides, this is some promotional gimmick, not a normally promoted show. I don't know if it would count.

    So you're saying there's a chance for el-p? Cause I would rather see him at ti instead of the regency.

    I wouldn't say it's impossible. I would think that passing through on a real tour in june makes them less like to come back in october, but I don't think that TI can command a radius clause of 3+ months prior. I may be wrong though. if anyone with more inside knowledge knows better feel free to shoot me down.

    I watched a video of The xx at primavera performing "Crystallised" and they actually slow it down and play it even softer! Oofta!

    OK, sure, but using last year's lineup, you just finish an epic Chromeo / Death From Above 1979 / Cut Copy marathon, and race to the stage to hear...VCR? Crystalised? Oh, and this one new "dancey" song. Versus Explosions in the Sky --> the XX?

    If Friendly Fires wasn't danceable enough for Saturday, there is no way the XX will be. They scream Sunday headliner to me.

    If you can't dance to a Friendly Fires performance you are either a communist or lacking limbs and most likely both.

    Have we forgotten M83 for Saturday headliner?

  18. #198

    Default Re: Treasure Island Music Festival 2012

    Travelfan, that's pretty much what I was saying, if the new XX album (which is scheduled to come out in September) were to be a lot more dancey, couldn't they be in a Chromeo or Cut Copy spot for Saturday? But like I said before, and agree with you, they would be better suited to Sunday.

    Also I thought that Friendly Fires would have actually been better suited for Saturday, and it was a choice between not booking them, or getting a Sunday set.

    Skyismad, M83 for a Saturday headliner would be really cool! But haven't they been playing in the bay a lot recently? I'm not sure that TIMF would book someone for headliner who has been playing a lot of shows in the area recently. But they will be at ACL on Friday, so that leaves open a possibility for a Saturday performance at TIMF.

    First time I ate some paper at Coachella 05, the psychedelic keyboards from this band made sure my body would not stop moving.

    Don't have time to confirm this on an official source, but Starfucker might be a possibility for Sat:

    http://www.songkick.com/concerts/131...source=skemail

    EDIT: http://www.polyvinylrecords.com/tour...CD=&countryCD=

    That makes it look like they could start the California leg with TIMF!

    Looks like there will be no Simian Mobile Disco live set at TIMF... instead they will be at Mezzanine on Dec 1st: https://www.facebook.com/simianmobil...23966167614127

    Sigh... I feel like TIMF would be an awesome setting for these guys.

    That's a shame. Feel like we might get stuck w/ Crystal Castles.

    Really pulling for Orbital.

    Cold Cave is playing in LA on 10/20. Doesn't say too much about the prospect of a TI appearance but I'd welcome it.

    And the Shins, Tegan and Sara, and Beats Antique should be counted out as they are playing the Harmony by the Bay Show at Shoreline in September. Thankfully, because the Shins are terrible live. I thought they were going to be a shoe-in since they played OSL last year (kinda like Empire of the Sun the year before).

    True, though that's an awfully small period of time in between shows.

    That SMD December tour is crying out for a friday, 12/1 show in LA. Would-be 3 mos gap btw LA shows seems more plausible than would-be 1.5 mos gap btw SF shows.

    Assuming The xx were to headline Sunday, consensus is M83 for Saturday headlining slot?

    Fuck, I'd love to see Crystal Castles at TI. I know that'd get a bunch of my friends to attend. I believe CC are working on a new album right now
