So Tegan and Sara still in despite the Feb 1st show in Los Angeles?
M83 played with 2 January shows. They are obviously far more popular then Tegan and Sara, but doesnt count em out just yet. That show is at Club Nokia, a Goldenvoice venue.
The Source says:
Sigur Ros -> Blur -> Neil Young
Yeah Yeah Yeahs -> Atoms For Peace -> NIN
Stone Roses -> The Killers -> Daft Punk
The Killers sub-headlining would make me laugh.
Chella or no chella? Could just be one of the bands around the socal area at the same time. Youth Lagoon from last year comes to mind.
Thao & the Get Down Stay Down - 04/07/13 - San Diego
thought it was weird how there hasn't been much Neil talk this year, especially with him being fairly active lately
11/21 - Pearl Jam - Viejas Arena
the last thing we need is the shitelife at chella...
Plus Daft would be the first EDM act to be top billed at a mainstream music festival in the US. Killers placate the non-EDM fans plus the band can still be a top billed rock act with egos in check.
Killers are Fri/Sat in Mexico City which would mean they will travel with minimal production beyond instruments. Screens/lights/lasers would have to be at Indio while the band is still in Mexico as that has to be hung/tested before doors open at 11 am. Killers have let themselves be 2nd billed at other festivals.
Lastly, I would watch all these sets though some I may only do 30 minutes.
