    Default The Shins playing Coachella 2007

    Ok, they just came out with a new album AND their tour dates leave a gap from April 22nd until August 26th. I would say this would be a perfect addition to Friday's lineup.
    I can't see too many Coachell-ies/Coachellers/Coachellas not being into this.

    It is a strange, strange, strange, shame. Obviously not everyone likes the Shins, but they are a perfect fit, stylistically, for Coachella. There is nothing on their tour itinerary after April 22. The Shins are playing some other festivals, but not Coachella. Yes, someone once said on the message board that they were told the Shins would be out of the country Coachella weekend, but nothing on their website or anywhere else indicates that they will be on tour anywhere. Unless we are in for a surprise (doubtful), it seems like Coachella (GV) really dropped the ball on this one.

    i agree, they should be there. I love the shins, but they (apparently) arent that exciting live - well, at least not to most. When i was at their show in the Theater at MSG, which i thought was really great, i got popcorn, beer bottles and plastic cups thrown at me for being the only "a**hole" in the ENTIRE building (save for the back row) who was standing up (i was in the second row, lol). In fact one dude kept yelling at me to sit down, and in a drunken, "f**k you a**holes, who sits during a rock concert?" rage, i scaled four rows of seats and nearly killed him - luckily my friends pulled me off of him.

    Note to self: Alcohol is a helluvah drug...

    Blue Devil 007, while the Shins may not be very exciting live, it sounds like YOU are! Maybe you should tour with the band to keep the audience interested.
    Yeah, maybe the Shins will play next year, or the next. But to miss out on signing the band for a Coachella performance when their CD is timed perfectly around the concert, and while they are all the rage in the media, constitutes a major failure.

    Just saw the Shins in LA on Sunday--Good show-not great though. I did see them at All Tomorrows Parties in LOng Beach 3(?) years ago and they were the best act there. SO They can be great and their music is great and I would like for them to be at Coachella someday!

    I thought they sounded pretty awful at the Long Beach show and much better this summer at the bowl where the drums were not as overwhelming in the mix. That keyboard players thinks he is pretty funny too.

    The shins are really boring live. Not bad, definitely boring.

    I also saw them at the Hollywood Bowl and thought they were good but not loud enough--we were in a box so you'd think we would be okay on sound--and the rest of the night was plenty loud enough. We thought the keyboard player was funny too--but not on Sunday--maybe they were tired from all th KCRW partying on Saturday.

    I thought they were just terrible at the Hollywood Bowl last year. His voice doesn't sound anything like it does on record.

    I saw them at one of those KROQ Acoustic Christmas concerts a few years back and I actually physically fell asleep during their set, I'm assuming the amount of alcohol in my body + The Shins did not help...It felt like somebody was singing me lullabies.

    I am honestly stunned at the number of posts that I read about the Shins being boring live. I almost didn't see there concert here in Lawrence, KS because I had read so many negative comments. Being a huge fan of the Shins, I chose to go and I am so grateful that I did. Their show was easily in the top ten shows I have ever been to in my life. It is not uncommon for me to get bored at shows here and there, but during the Shins show, I was completely mesmerized the entire time. I can't even describe how incredible it was. I don't know if they put on the most amazing show here or what, but it was truly incredible.

    I've seen them twice this year, and both times they were excellent. I saw them once last year and they were dull. There seems to have been an injection of personality this time around.
