Thread: Anyone in the Lineup who can put on a show like the Hives?

  1. #1

    Default Anyone in the Lineup who can put on a show like the Hives?

    They're super fun and Pelle is an awesome front man. Looked for the official vid of tick tick boom at Coachella but it was down. If someone on this years lineup is this fun I don't want to miss it.

    I hadn't seen the Hives until the festival last year. One of the most fun sets of the weekend

    Yeah check out Franz Ferdinand. I saw them at Outside Lands last summer and they stole the fest for me (over stevie wonder, metallica, tame impala, neil young, portugal the man, etc.) That said, check out tame impala and portugal the man, they put on a great show.

    I've heard that Violent Femmes put on a fantastic show as well. I haven't seen them for myself, so I'll definitely be checking their set out.

    you know last year this was one of my top 5 bands to see and i ended up leaving a bit into it. I found the lead singer to be a total d-bag. He must have told the crowd to love him 100 times 3 songs into the set

    this may very well be true but wasn't so much what he was saying, just how much he was saying stupid shit.

    I want to see them at a stand alone show sometime.

    I saw Franz Ferdinand at Chella in 09 and the Hives last year. Granted I was MUCH closer to the Hives but they were way more fun than Franz. And Franz doesn't have a frontman quite like Pelle.

    I haven't done much lineup research but I'm sure there's some great loud, energetic rock music. Not sure who's the most hilarious frontman.

    I have to agree. I saw them last week when they opened for Pink. Not really their target demographic. I was a bit surprised by the choice. And then the lead singer just kept asking how much we loved him and some other random stuff. I don't mind some of them but it was like between every song and went on just a tad to long.

    Otherwise, their performance was great. I was one of the few who knew their music and was bouncing around. Would totally see them again.

    I think their lead singer is perfect. His fake douchery makes for quite an entertaining show

    They sounded great, but he did get annoying. I'm all for bragging and saying your the best and whatever, but in between every song is too much. Kills the vibe of the show IMO.

    It was on the news, and you know it happens all the time, B Springsteen once said "Hello Ohio" when he started the show. Only problem was, he was in Detroit.... cr****

    Violent Femmes are a must see! Social D always puts on an awesome show also. Never seen Franz, but will be sure to check them out

    Pelle was the shit last year - and fucking hilarious. It's called sarcasm - and not taking yourself too seriously.

    whatever he was doing, it was not an effective use of sarcasm. asking the crowd to tell you they love you, and then replying i love you more than all of you love me, like wtf is that?

    i don't see how it can be interpreted as sarcasm.

    if their fans like it, that's cool.

    i didn't like it.

    acting like people here don't understand sarcasm is akin to acting like a beaver doesn't know he can eat fucking trees.

    If you want something like The Hives, go see The Make-Up. The Hives were definitely inspired by them, and Ian Svenonius' other band The Nation of Ulysses.
