Good show at staples tonight. The smell of weed coming from the crowd was slightly overpowering though.
shit ur drawls
The funny thing is that people clearly want to like me, but seem to be afraid of catching hell from the multi-thousand poster club. Inability to think for yourself is the fastest way to get them and myself thinking low of you. That having been said, I would accept xanman's friend request. No one is too big for anyone else on the internet. The internet elite is a fantasy. Don't let them fool you into thinking otherwise.
Sometimes folks are just generally awful and go on the naughty list.
No need to say people are trying to be elite.
This is the one place where you don't have to lie to kick it.
I don't think Weezer is in this year.
More excited for his return than I should be?

I've reached a point in my life where I keep my hating to a minimum and respect everyone's art and if it's not for me I just shrug it off with nothing bad to say about it. But a few times a year I slip. And this is one of those times.
Muse is the musical theater of rock bands.
Black Keys had a month off circa April 2012.
There are no real rumours for a headliner, which....has that happened before with Coachella? Who could they get with millions burning a hole in their pocket that would provide "wow" factor if Bowie/Stones/Daft are not in play? Smiths/Talking Heads won't budge.
Phoenix needs something a co-headliner or major EDM act to share that evening to be a remotely passable headliner. In other words, "plan K" headliner after Plans A thru J fell through.
The busiest Stones site on the web is taking the Jagger quote as gospel. THAT site does have inside sources.
Stones own their masters, so the record company won't have any idea what's happening until roughly the same time as we do.
Also, if they want to go outdoors in multiple markets then they won't be "ready" by April.
Also brought up several dozen pages was Portishead could sell more tickets in North America than Blur at any point in their career and it was a US exclusive show. Blur already have a gig in Mexico and probably other US dates.
Coachella have that go toe to toe with anything else int he world. Rumours don't have me doing back flips yet.
They haven't announced in Feb in a decade. It's become an international festival since then with media/movie/webcasts.
Plus fans flying in have to make travel plans. I'm coming down for 10 days, have 10 days booked in 3 cities with greyhound/flights/hotels/hostels/side trips. I just don't who's playing the festival I built a vacation around. With other festivals announcing fans can choose based on lineup rather than loyalty to a location.
it's not really known how many passes GV sell in the pre sale vs. number of passes sold with the lineup known.
