    Default Coachella newb, questions about the line-up

    Hey all, this will be my first coachella and im extremely pumped. I know there are alot of bands there I'm very excited to see, such as black keys, manu chao, air, decemberists, rhcp, just to name a small few. There are also tons of bands on there i've heard of but haven't heard their stuff, and furthermore, theres tons of bands on there I haven't even heard of. I have been pretty much into the jam band scene for the last couple years, but as I'm getting older, so are my tastes. I know it would be impossible to give me a review about all the bands in the lline-up, but I would really appreciate some info on maybe 5-10 bands you are looking forward too, so i can at least have some idea how to plan my days. Thanks very much in advance, and i look forward to seeing you all soon!

    so ive done a lot of research and i know a lot of the bands. You probably dont have the same music taste as me but whatever. here are some bands you may not have heard of that i like.(not including headliners and other higher posted bands)

    FRIDAY

    Brazilian girls - i like "jique" by them. its an awesome song.

    tokyo police club - i would chek out their CD. they have a few awesome songs. "nature of the experiment" and "be good"

    Of Montreal - must see. an amazing band. chek out "Wraith pinned to the mist and other games" and "Heimdalsgate like a promethean curse"
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3WgciZxdtQo

    Gogol bordello - crazy stuff. gypsy punk rock. look up "start wearing purple" and "Immigrant Punk"
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QkX1z2FZdV0

    silversun pickups - "lazy eye"

    Tilly and the Wall - they have a tap dancer instead of a drummer. pretty sweet. chek out "bad education" and "Rainbows in the Dark"
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H3j7W2OgbxY

    Amy winehouse - ok music. but i dont know how she will be in concert. i heard she is often drunk.

    Noisettes - "Dont give up" and "monte christo"

    Explosions In The Sky are a MUST see live, no matter what your reservations are about an instrumental band. They will make you a believer.

    The Rapture put on an amazingly fun dance party show during SXSW this year, so I plan on seeing them again.

    Ratatat jams.

    Girl Talk was supposedly amazing at SXSW, so I don't want to miss that this time.

    The Good, The Bad, & The Queen are damon albarn from Gorillaz and Blur and Paul Simonon the bassist from The Clash. They have a good album "kingdom of doom" but I hear the live show is pretty boring.

    Peaches was really really fucking fun at SXSW, deep throated drum sticks and microphones. almost stripped completely as well. I'd say she's a must see.

    Arcade Fire...I hope you have heard of them, amazing.

    alright I'm tired of typing, plus nobody cares what I think anyway.
