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 Knife - Beck - The Cult - Motorhead - QOTSA - Outkast - The Replacements - Bryan Ferry - Pet Shop Boys - Temples - Crosses - Washed Out - The Preatures - Little Dragon
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.
