Wouldn't Phoenix have too big of a crowd to go against NIN? They DID headline Coachella this year ...
9/19 - CHVRCHES - Hollywood Palladium
10/7 - Belle and Sebastian - Ace Hotel
10/16 - Massive Attack - Greek Theatre
12/5 - Flight Facilities - The Regent Theater
Am overall happy about the allocation of bands this year. The only band it seems I'll be missing is Phoenix via clashing with Nine Inch Nails, but I'm not too devastated over that. It's a good trade. Yeah Yeah Yeahs -> NIN and The National -> Macca will rule.
8/9-11 - Outside Lands 8/24 - Godflesh & Jucifer 9/3 - Loma Prieta 9/6 - Church of Ra 9/28 - Jesu & JK Flesh 10/11 - Carcass 10/27 - At the Gates
Also Pheonix closing the Twin Peaks? You guys know how much of a cluster fuck it would be in that area? I personally don't see how in the hell all the people would fit there with how narrow it is. Arguably NIN and Phoenix are two of the three most popular bands this year so I just can't imagine APE putting them up against each other.
Then it would have to be YYYs > Phoenix > NIN which would be even better than the epicness of 2011's Saturday lineup.
but does anyone think it could be
Lands End: Young the Giant -> Phoenix -> NIN
Twin Peaks: Jurassic 5 -> YYYs
Sutro: Grizzly Bear
I don't see Young the Giant playing before YYYs or Jurassic 5, but I could see them playing before Phoenix, and based on that I put those two on the main before NIN.
This lineup looked a lot better to me before the day by day breakdown
Sunday is really weak
I might just do a single day for Saturday. I wonder if it's better to just wait the week of when to see if the single day passes depreciate in value.
I'm sure it's going to be a blast, but can't pull the trigger at the end of the day. Just too much Coachella overlap for the flight, hotel, ticket, etc.
Hopefully we'll get a Macca date in LA and it looks like there will be a couple times in SoCal to check out NIN between now and next spring.
Are we sure certain that the 2nd tier is a guaranteed lock for headlining twin peaks stage? I'd hate to miss out on the National because of Paul. Of course, there's no sense on getting my panties in a bunch this far in advance either.
nah, we aren't really sure of anything yet beyond the headliners
god fucking damnit i hope not
Friday: Outkast, The Replacements, Girl Talk, Chromeo, AFI, The Afghan Whigs, Bastille, Jagwar Ma, Grouplove, Caravan Palace
Saturday: Muse, QOTSA, Pharrell, Foster the People, Empire of the Sun, Kid Cudi, Sleigh Bells, Cage the Elephant, CHVRCHES, Capitol Cities, Temples, Bombay Bicycle Club, Holy Ghost!, Bear Hands
Sunday: Arcade Fire, Beck, Neutral Milk Hotel, Trombone Shorty, Frank Turner, Surfer Blood, J Roddy Walston
Bought a three day pass. Thinking of avoiding Saturday. Years ago it was just three single day tickets, which made it easy to sell one or more and keep the one you wanted to go for.
Anyone know if that is still the way it's done? Anyone get a three day pass last year and what was the deal?
Yeah. So if you give it to someone else for that day, they need to return it to you. Which I did successfully with sbconnection 2 years ago -- so it's advisable to do that with someone you know & trust.
9/12: Shifted @ Mercer
