Thread: the official "this years list sucks" thread.

  1. #1

    Default the official "this years list sucks" thread.

    out of the three bands i might have wanted to actually see, ive already seen them all. ok, there are like 5 but come on coachella, get some better taste!
    bands that should have been there and i would go:
    xiu xiu
    deerhoof
    animal collective and or panda bear
    yellow swans
    joanna newsom
    portishead
    Akron/Family
    Hella
    sigur ros (understandably not there)

    ... waiting for next year.

    p.s. RHCP!?!? thats almost as pathetic as madonna last year! rage is doing it for money, and are waaaaaaaay overrated. good job on bjork though.

    I thought xiu xiu was going to play, was a bit dissapointed when he didn't. then realized I don't want to hear Jamie stewart screaming about child abuse and ex-boyfriends while I'm trying to enjoy myself.

    Hi, my name is Coachella 2006. Inside me you found Deerhoof, Animal Collective and Sigur Ros. Now go cry in the corner.

    I dont think it sucks except for the headliners. It's like welcome to Lollapalooza circa 1991 in that regard.

    i honestly dont see how this is a good list... maybe you guys who thought i was joking could enlighten me (or actually knew i wasnt joking, but were trying to be funny yourselves by acting that way. which in fact wasnt funny at all)

    bmack: ya you're right and last years list was better now wasnt it? and you didnt address xiu xiu, panda bear, yellow swans, joanna newsom, hella, portishead or akron/family. and whats so bad about wanting bands to return? there are a bunch of bands this year who have been there in the past (including all three headliners). Now go finger your mom.

    hang the dj: so you would rather hear zach de la roca attempting (and failing miserably) to address political issues, sounding like a dumb ass, and really only doing it for the money? or how bout RHCP's incredibly lame, cliched lyrics about how much they love california (i swear he mentions it in EVERY song ive ever heard of theirs)

    and its not just the headliners who suck. 90% of the list reserves that right. at least they have better dance acts this year (!!!, LCD), but still not worth it. those of you going, see Grizzly Bear and Explosions in the Sky on sunday and it will make it all better.

    ok, honestly i do appreciate your trying to convince me (im being serious, not an asshole) but i dont think it is going to happen. for the sake of this i will put a list of bands going that i do enjoy, but still dont make it worth my drive and 800 dollars the trip costed me last year in total.

    Bjork
    sonic youth
    the arcade fire (im giving it to you)
    LCD
    Blonde redhead
    black keys
    !!!
    ghostface
    Air (not really though, but i guess)
    willie nelson (because who wouldnt want to see him?)
    explosions in the sky
    spank rock
    grizzly bear

    i know of all the other bands you guys can tell me you think are good and are a good reason to go, but if they are not on that list, then i dont care... not trying to be a dick, just stating my view. hell, i was just as pumped as anyone for this list to come out (since sunday's last show last year). now imagine if you'd been dissappointed... hard pill to swallow.

    your post contributes nothing but negativity to this board. if you don't like the bands, don't come to the show. don't come on here and complain about it to people who actually like these bands and are looking forward to seeing them.

    dude this is a message board about coachella. positive or negative i think i should be able to talk about it, being a fan of music and the festival and all. and im not complaining to anyone. its just a thread, like any other thread, meant for discussion. come on, do you really feel that way? because it is pretty ignorant. thats the dumbest post ive read so far... what is this board a coachella dictatorship? execute me for speaking against it!

    i just wanted to bump this thread so once again you can all read about how much this years list sucks. dont worry i wont post here anymore (until next january), so you guys can all happily continue to jerk off goldenvoice for their second-to lamest list ever.

    Are you seriously familiar with all of the acts playing? I'm not one to tell you to go away or shut up, but if you post a thread about hating the lineup, I don't understand what you're wanting from the rest of the people who disagree with you. You've already said you don't care who anybody else mentions, so it's not like you're looking for someone to convince you of a certain band's merit. So...what is it that you want?

    Starting a thread is, at least the way I understand it, a way to open up a discussion about something. You obviously don't want to discuss the lineup or try to hear other people's opinion about why they do like the lineup. So...really, what do you want out this thread?

    Adam, wait until the coachella sampler, or as Yablo suggested (in a passive aggressive, roundabout way) try listening to a few other bands. Sparklehorse, Jarvis Cocker, Air, The Frames (just download Santa Maria or Dream Awake by them), look I could save time by listing the acts (on Saturday especially) that I'm NOT pumped to see (even if I've already seen them). I've caught about 12 Explosions in the Sky concerts, but barring conflict, I'll be there for #13. I just don't get people around here sometimes. Buy your tickets, go, try some new things, fall in love with a random act or two, or stay home. It's that simple dude. I agree that you have a right to vent, but you've kinda lost point of your original point. Personally, this is my favorite lineup (including 2004---ooh, blasphemy). Just a solid lineup all around. Not the strongest electronica lineup (at least, not that I'm aware of), but then again, I'm pretty much out of my electronica phase so that doesn't bother me as much.

    I won't say this is a bad line-up but there are at least 3 Coachellas that have been better - way better.

    god, it's a great bill, something for everyone.
    i know i'm going to have a hard time seeing all the bands i want due to overlap.

    meh, some people will never be happy unless the bill is stacked 100% with only bands they like.
