    Jen would be the authority on what's nearby. I'll check with her. There are a bunch of great places to drink in the area, though, so even if Suntan (I'm pretty sure it's actually San Tan but am not positive) isn't close, there are a variety of other options.

    I might go by like on Saturday afternoon to catch Heartless Bastards and Deer Tick. oh the Shins are playing there Friday night too, that would be cool.
    Yeah, that's pretty curious. I'm guessing they decided they could draw bigger crowds by being in downtown Phoenix, especially by partnering with the Crescent Ballroom and hosting the afterparties there. The Crescent has sold out so many shows in the short period of time its been around and has always been very well attended at every show I've been to, and that's held true on nights when we were just there to drink in the lounge.

    We were considering going on Saturday but the band that most interests me is Heartless Bastards and we saw them at the Crescent last year, and the other major act that caught our attention that day is the Roots, who will be at Bestival, which is going to cost us quite a bit of money. So we're going to pass.

    Wait, you live in Phoenix, you're a music fan, and you're not going to a festival where The Roots, The Shins, Dr. Dog, Umphrey's, Deer Tick, Heartless Bastards, Yonder Mt., Orogon and others are playing? That's silly.

    Late to weigh in on this, but you can't raise with a lower denomination. Transmissions is good, Clouds is better. Those are two of the three absolute peaks of their killer catalog (In A Priest Driven Ambulance being the third)

    The Flaming Lips were in-fucking-credible last night. I wasn't sure how they would top Tame Impala's 75 minute set, but they managed to blow my mind. This stage setup NEEDS to be on the polo fields.

    Is it the same setup that they've had for half the last few years? I like it, but I've saw it 4 times now. They need a little change.

    No,its different. I saw them open for the black keys this summer. Sound was too low and the setlist wasn't exactly 'opening for the black keys at an ampitheater in 2013' friendly but it'd be a good show go close the outdoor.

    Fellow board member betao actually had an opportunity to ask the Flaming Lips that very same question, OP. Apparently GV hasn't asked them to come back. That's it.

    This was also in February, before The Terror was released to some critical acclaim. If they have a new album with a new stage show, that sounds like it has more potential than a stage show they hadn't changed in years.

    I like The Flips, but I cant blame GV. I heard that they only played like 4 songs during their hour set in 2004.

    Not to mention they sound like shit live. This band is the Insane Clown Posse of indie. I would rather see the latter on the polo fields.

    Why would that happen when Arcade Fire can easily headline by themselves?

    People are really overstating the Flaming Lips popularity and fame. They're not even close to a sub headliner. Every show I've ever seen them play has been a carbon copy of the first one I saw.

    Boring.

    3pm slot someplace.
    With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams; it is still a beautiful world.
