    He looks like Kevin Kolb the Cardinals crappy quarterback. Love the album, have no clue what he says half the time though.

    I've seen them live twice and they're great (Popscene in SF, and then opening for some crap band we didn't stay for at the Fillmore (I think Wallpaper)). A lot more energy live than on record.

    Very good live. Lots of negative backlash probably due to the hype they were given but anyone who liked their album will enjoy them live.

    This is massively enjoyable.

    Whatever song they just broke into around 33 minutes is awesome. Dude's voice sounds similar to Foals.

    I really enjoy their full album and am really excited to see them. They are among the bands I was really hoping would be there.

    Really loved their set at Bootleg earlier this year, will be interesting to see how it translates to the polo fields in the daytime. Will be checking them out again at least one of the two weekends.

    Ugh! Isn't it funny that someone from Silverlake would be shunning popularity? They are playing huge shows overseas. Face it. You might be too cool for school Stateside, but you are on the bandwagon for sure. Yes, they are HOT right now, and hopefully for many years to come, cause I dig 'em.

    It's a no win situation. You start liking a band. They become more well known. The instant you say 'I've been liking them since when' you sound like an asshole.

    I was hooked as soon as I heard the "BAH DAH DAH DAH" in Breezeblocks.

    Such an amazing tune on a damn good album. Excited to see them live

    The place where I work held a private session with these guys and it was amazing. Not only are they some of the nicest dudes around, but the whole time before & after we were just talking bullshit and then went out and got California burritos (they were baffled that we in SD put french fries in our burritos).

    This is one of my most anticipated sets for sure.
    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

    I will never understand why people like you feel the need to comment on threads like this.. Do you need some attention or something?
