    Default JAPANDROIDS. A great band that you should probably go see.

    And by probably, I mean don't miss them. This set is definitely going to be a highlight for anyone who checks them out on Friday.

    A Japandroids show is completely euphoric. The energy and earnestness of the band is completely contagious and they win over any crowd they play too. You will jump. You will yell. You will sing. You may even cry. You will grab a complete stranger and look them in the face as you yell every word to them. You will be covered in beer. You will be covered in beer. And most importantly, you will be smiling ear to ear with a big dumb grin after the show is done.

    So don't be a fool and miss this band. You will regret it.

    I love these dudes, but their songs are so hooky, once KROQ picks them up all you will deny ever liking them. So there for this set though.

    I've been singing there praises on this forum for three years.

    I caught Brian after a show in late 2010, and asked him if he thought he'd play Coachella. He responded, "No, we're not a big enough band to play Coachella." They had recently played Bonnaroo, and I told him that I thought he was wrong. I'm so glad he was wrong. I love this band.
    Even though I look it, I'm not a cop.

    the way Coachella is going, they're probably almost big enough to headline.

    Celebration Rock was easily one of the best albums of 2012. I can't wait to see these guys live. All I hear are great reviews.

    That album is perfect from start to finish.

    Probably the only album released in 2012 that I LOVED.

    I may be in the minority, but I'm of the opinion their first album is the perfect one. Celebration Rock didn't really do it for me despite having a couple very great songs (The House that Heaven Built and Younger Us).

    Should be a great set, would love it if they played "I Quit Girls" but they don't seem to anymore.

    I have only seen them one time, in 2011 for the Polyvinyl 15th anniversary show in Urbana, IL. I thought they were damn fantastic, and a friend of mine passed them off as cheesy, with poor guitar work. I told him he was full of shit...

    Celebration Rock has become pretty huge. I'm hearing it played all over the place now... I'm expecting a sizable crowd if they are up against a lot of nothing earlier in the day. I'll definitely be there if there isn't a bad conflict.
    2/21 - Skinny Puppy
    5/23-25 - Summer Camp
    7/18-20 - Pitchfork Music Festival
    8/1-3 - Lollapalooza

    Well, that was clearly a poor decision on his part.

    I won't be covered in beer because Coachella refuses to let us take beer out of the beer garden. Anyway, I'll be there at this set for sure.
