    Default Broken Bells - Best Part of Friday

    Super stoked to see Broken Bells on Friday and hear their new material. Loving the first two singles, "Holding on for Life" and "After the Disco". Keep a lookout for the new album next month.

    I am also stoked to see Broken Bells! I hope for no conflicts since there's quite a few artists on Friday I'm looking forward to seeing.

    Great album. I've heard they're kind of lackluster live though. Any thoughts?

    They are just fine live. I enjoyed their set at The Wiltern, but was not blown away. I will check them out again one of the weekends.

    Ya the Shins are amazing live. I'm hoping with a bigger catalog and more experience playing with each other that they'll play an amazing show. Plus they probably gotta play a big stage - main most likely? So they gotta but on a good show .. I hope!

    Really excited for this set. I love the new songs so far and I liked the debut album more than I liked the last two Shins albums. Bells on the Outdoor before The Knife on the main would be ideal.

    Yes and I think its the best part based on my musical preferences. You know, being that I've lived with myself for 26 years, I think I know what my opinion is. Don't need some random people on message boards to question it.

    Then for the love of all that is holy do not venture over to the snake-pit of smug, hipper-than-thou assholes over on the horseshit “Saturday is the Single Worst Day in Coachella History” thread.

    I’m also looking forward to Broken Bells on Friday, but for me I’m expecting Austra to be the best on Friday (Austra was beyond awesome at their Crescent Ballroom show last September in Phoenix). Always open to be surprised by someone better, though.

    Liking Broken Bells I think you’ll love Austra. Check them (her, mostly) out.

    I like the music but whenever I watch a live video, they just seem so boring.

    I will probably check them out but will have a backup plan.

    I love James Mercer but actually only thought they were okay when I saw the Shins live in L.A.. However, that isn't stopping me from hoping for great things from Broken Bells. Bands seem to be different at Coachella -- either better or worse that at other venues. Like Arcade Fire was incredible on Halloween ( and if you didn't dress up they had masks and stuff for people, which was very cool) but even on YouTube, they were monsters at Coachella.

    Just paid 120 for a pair of tickets to see him at the end of Feb at a place with 1,500 capacity. Scalpers are a bitch, but it should be a blast.

    Ya good idea, I got better things to do than sit on a forum all day. Some of you guys are ridiculous with all the pointless posts insulting each other and making smug remarks.

    Anyway I think Broken Bells will be great.

    I think its the best musical forum based on my forum preferences. You know, being that I've lived with myself for 29 years, I think I know what's pointless and what's insulting. Don't need some random person on a message board telling me I'm making smug remarks.

    Anyway I definitely don't think Broken Bells will be that great.

    I honestly think that Broken Bells might be good but I don't think they're the best part of Friday, especially due to Outkast and the Knife being ahead of them.

    Agreed with everything you've said, especially the scheduling! Please no BB-TK-OK conflicts!!!

    These guys are great! I am so thankful they are playing Coachella this year. I think Outkast will be a lot of fun and silly so am hoping the two are not on at the same time. Broken Bells very well may be my favorite band on Friday, as that is my musical taste.

    AHHH!!!
    So excited, can't wait. I've never seen them live, I'm hoping for a kick ass show.

    Really excited for Broken Bells. If they were to play the Outdoor with The Replacements closing it right after it would be pretty much perfect.
    Coachella '13 W1, '14 W2
    That is pretty delicious right there.
