    Thumbs up Bat For Lashes!!

    So this is finally happening. Would be perfect from 6-7pm with a few grams of shrooms.

    A couple clips from Bestival last year:




    And because it's somewhat topical, here's some fun from Joshua Tree back in the day.

    On a day with an unbelievably high amount of conflicts, Bat for Lashes is going to be top priority for me.

    Same. I'll be there regardless of conflicts. Well, Sigur Ros vs Bat for Lashes would make me shoot myself.

    Goddamn it. Saturday is ridiculous. I want to see BFL so freaking bad. I could listen to her sing Laura all fucking day and be happy. I guess I'll just have to hope against hope that they don't conflict with Sigur Ros or Postal Service. I could live with anything else (though, I'd be pretty bummed to have to miss Hawtin, Puscifer, or Moby, none of whom I've seen live). Any chance they'd get a sunset set or after dark set? Sigur Ros and the XX both played sunset sets their last time at Coachella, so maybe they'll play later this time. In which case BFL would seem pretty perfect for sunset on the Outdoor stage (or am I crazy?).

    Outdoor would be nice if she played as the sun started to go down, but I would guess Gobi or Mojave. I don't care so much where she plays, just when.

    One morning I listened to "Laura" twenty times in a row.

    I'm rooting for a day set just because of the conflicts. Florence & The Machine played Mojave around 4pm in 2010. I think that's within reason for BFL.

    I need another band I want to see playing at night like a hole in the head - New Order, Spiritualized, Sigur Ros, Hawtin, Hot Chip, the XX is how I have them ranked right now. Also really want to see Savages, Selecter, Birdy Nam Nam and the Violent Femmes but that all should be during the day.

    They just had here on XMU sessions and she was great. The acoustic version of "AllYour Gold" was really good.
    I just want to have something to do...

    Saw her at the Bowery Ballroom back in 2007 I think it was. Right after she'd been nominated for the Mercury Music Prize. I'd never heard about her before and a mate had a spare so I said I'd tag along. It was one of the best gigs I'd ever been to and still is. She can fucking sing. Once she sang 'Prescilla' I was hooked. I will not be missing this for anything.

    Awesome. I wish I had seen her back in 2007.

    Purchased my ticket yesterday for the show at the Fonda. Still looking into catching the Big Sur show, as well.

    Boourns, thank you for these! That Baeble version of All Your Gold just blew me the fuck away. And a Boss cover . . . well, damn.

    Not to sound over dramatic, but, at this point, I'd pay the price of Coachella admission just to see her. I have the absolute biggest crush on BfL. Seriously. At this point, if she conflicts with even Sigur Ros and Postal Service (two of my very most anticipated acts of the fest), I'll be watching BfL and will have zero regrets.

    Just bought mine too! Couldn't resist the appeal of seeing a full set, even though I'll likely still be recovering from weekend 2.

    Yup, she was flat out amazing, weekend 2. My set of the weekend, even beating out a truly amazing Sigur Ros set. I'll be seeing her set tonight in Hollywood. I'm not sure I've seen anything more beautiful than her live rendition of Laura. I was totally floored.

    Yeah, that weekend 1 set was incredible, my favorite of the fest.

    Wish I could have afforded to stick around LA for another week to catch tonight's show. Who knows when she'll come around again

    I caught wnkd 1 and her version of Laura was so fucking beautiful it brought out a tear...

    I was also caught in the moment holding my son with my wife(Laura)

    You can also tell that song means a lot to Natasha as she performed it with so much emotion
    Only wish this would have been a sunset act

    Yeah, I had the best of times going nuts and tripping during the rest of her set but was completely overwhelmed emotionally during "Laura". I just wish she had been scheduled between two other acts because she deserved a better crowd than the collection of teenage subhumans that shoved in for 2 Chainz and stayed for Major Lazer.

    Man, you should have stuck around for the show at the Fonda last night. Just . . . wow. She is simply amazing. Her rendition of Laura weekend 2 was one of my very top concert moments of all time. Brought actual tears to my eyes for first time ever at a concert. And then last night, my friend was balling her ass of during Laura. Natasha was just amazing again from first note to last. She should be a goddamn star.

    After her set I went to her signing and she signed my Daniel single http://i.imgur.com/YcEHGz5.jpg and the Laura single too. She was so incredibly nice and hugged everyone who came up and I was so nervous. Even more of a fan now.
