Thread: Give Simian Mobile Disco a full 2 hours!

  1. #1

    Thumbs up Give Simian Mobile Disco a full 2 hours!

    These guys are amazing, I LOVE them. Seen them 3 times and they destroyed, though the sets were only 1.5 hours, and since all 3 times were in a club setting I didn't witness any of their allegedly insane visual setups they use at music venues like the echo plex. Though a night time or sunset slot would be preferable I'd settle for a late afternoon or early evening set if they get a full 2 hour slot, like Sven Všth in '11.

    There would be no greater injustice than giving them only 50 or 60 minutes.

    I really miss SMD's setup of the pixelline lights that mimic'd 10,000 horses video, they don't seem to tour with this setup since the lights are extremely expensive. But overall if they have a booka shade B2B simian mobile disco lineup, coachella will be fucking amazing this year.

    In a tweet they said they were playing live, which I assume will be the same set(1:30) they played at the Fonda, Sonar, FYF etc. More than likely they will get an hour, maybe 1.5 depending on which stage they play.

    No denying that they have evolved and have continued to entertain. That said, an hour will work for me.
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    Simian Mobile Disco's live show runs at about 90 minutes. So this is not happening. Wish it would, but no.

    That being said, this will easily be one of saturday's best sets.

    It would be cool if Chris Keating came out and did a live version of Audacity of Huge with them! Yeasayer is playing Sat. as well.

    Looks pretty solid, I'm definitely excited for their set! Do they usually play with their backs more or less to the crowd? It's cool that we get to see their gear and what their doing etc, just kind of strange to have them facing away from us haha.

    I am all for artists who spend more time worrying about perfecting their set rather than trying to draw attention to themselves fist pumping and making hearts with their hands on stage.

    I wouldn't know about how they'll do it at Coachella - the 3 times I saw them they were facing the crowd the entire time, but possibly only because they have no other choice the way the dj booth is set up at this particular club.

    The will very often set up synths around a table and do not face the crowd while they operate their machinery

    Interesting, I guess that will help focus the attention on the music and how they're controlling it rather than a dj waving their arms around haha.

    fixed. Yeah when I saw them at the coach a few years ago, I couldnt help but think they looked like monkeys running around their mobile disco hitting buttons, turning knobs, plugging and replugging patch cables. Its mesmerizing to watch.

    I think 1.5 hrs would be perfect, no more no less IMO.

    I love SMD and have seen them about 10 times. They did not impress me this past november at the Fonda and at FYF though..
    Superfan will be in front of the Fonda masturbating furiously to a photo of him taking a photo of a band. Set is from 8:05 to approximately 8:05:15. Guest list only.

    Upcoming Shows: Nocturnal Wonderland Saturday, Cut Chemist/Dj Shadow - Palladium, Massive Attack SB Bowl, Festival Supreme, Coachella 2015

    This is in no way a bad thing. This set up looks insane

    I saw them at the Music Box a while ago...it was fun but they didn't do a great job of intro and high/lows for their hit songs imo. They started their encore with the chorus of "I Believe"...instead of swelling it into something epic.
    Eh, I would check them out again...I like their live setup.

    Just found this on my phone from their show back in December. Definitely one of my favorite electronic acts to see live.
