*based upon tedious fact checking.
The same show except for, you know, the music. Which is, last time I checked, why most people go to a concert. I saw the F'Lips in 2003 and again in 2010 and the setlist was wildly different. They rotated in older songs they hadn't played in awhile and they had two new albums (one great, one middling) to choose from.
It's like complaining that Interpol are still just standing there on stage. That's what they do, and after awhile you'd think people would get used to it.
Enjoy your lolla leftovers line up, looks like recycled acts from Lolla's past, except for one act that is. You will be Adored come April.
Just STFU and play the hits already...
It's going to be Prince, The Rolling Stones and Daft Punk, Blur, Flaming Lips, Phoenix. The Replacements, How To Destroy Angels and Suede.
Suede was just there in 2011, with little fanfare - but I wouldn't mind it again.
"Word on the street is that Claude VonStroke is getting his own stage at this years Coachella for a Dirtybird Record Label takeover."
They know what is what, but they don't know what is what, they just strut. What the fuck?
Word on the street. Jesus Fucking Christ.
5/25-5/27: MOVEMENT DETROIT
6/6: The Field @ The Independent
6/26: Colin Stetson @ The Chapel
