Thread: How to Destroy Angels Friday Meltdown

    Default How to Destroy Angels Friday Meltdown

    After the onslaught of a stacked Friday (particularly evening), How to Destroy Angels is in my opinion a brilliant choice to close out the Gobi (or festival for me). With little live performance credibility my enthusiasm may seem unmerited, but the ambient and haunting sound Trent, Atticus, Mariqueen and Robert have found is going to hypothetically be a true end of the night delight. I look forward to what they have in store for those of us packing the Gobi.

    He's in the Mojave tent if I'm not mistaken.

    I can't wait to see this! I'll be in the Mojave Tent from Infected Mushroom on so hopefully I can get a little close?

    I'm conflicted here with Stone Roses.

    I'm a huge NIN fan and like the How To Destroy Angels material, but it'd be kind of a shame to miss Stone Roses entirely.

    Any recommendations on how to mix it up and catch some of both?

    if it were only HTDA vs stone roses, no problem. HTDA all day. however, i think i need to catch bassnectar this time. im not an EDM devotee, but it seems like the right thing to do.

    not a dig on them, but they should have been a day/early evening set. closing just because trent's in the band? KIND of bullshit, if you ask me. look at puscifer. far more appropriate of a placement for a band with no comparison catalog or energy-wise to the band that spawned it.

    plus its their second show ever with little to know material?

    this means a) im skipping it or b) trent busts out NIN stuff and i say fuck those EDM hippies haha

    ding ding ding! winner. they cannot take apart the stage set up in time for another band once they get everything into place, thus, they close. deal with it. pucsifer did not put 1 million dollars into their setup, most of the bands playing didn't either, that's why HTDA is closing.

    I cannot fathom how anyone would want to see Trent Reznor's wife's vanity project over the Stone fucking Roses.

    I'm going to catch the first couple of Stone Roses songs, and hopefully Ian will sound as awful as he has in recent videos so I won't feel too guilty about abandoning the rest of their set for HtDA. Really sucks that they were both tied for my number 1 must-sees of the weekend...

    What's with the huge set up time for bassnectar? Does Modestep take that long to get off stage? Or does Bassnectar have his own set up too?

    I'm checking out HTDA tonight, so hopefully that will give me some sense as to if I need to see them again Friday or check out Bassnector or Stone Roses

    Well they did say the show was "Meant for Coachella"... I haven't been to the fox in years, and some shows ("DA PYRAMIDZ!!) were just meant to be seen at a festival like Coachella.

    I'm glad he's doing the stop tonight so I don't have to be at Weekend 1

    Modestep is a live edm band so they will have some stuff to tear down before bassnectar's set

    I think we are in for a big surprise with HTDA!!! And it will probably be epic being that Trent is pure genius.

    Wow. I was underwhelmed by what I heard earlier, but it's sounding (and looking) better with each video clip. I think I am going to catch the beginning of this, and then decide if/when to run for The Stone Roses.

    I have some pretty decent over-ear headphones and I have to say that HTDA sounds amazing when listening to their new album with them. It'll be even better live. blah blah blah.

    I honestly couldn't think of a better way to end Friday.
