I mean…I feel this is a pretty big get. Am i wrong?
Beat me to it. This act will be a standout for sure. Safe to say this will make it to the top of anyone's list who is lucky enough to catch him.

Woodkid is going to be epic. I saw them perform at the Osheaga Festival in Montreal and it was one of the best performances of the festival. Lucky for me I will see them at Coachella this year!
what is their live show like? kind of interested in checking em out, but Friday is going to be conflict hell for me
Check his interview on Russian TV out, its all a concept album. Kid starts out in a small town and is made of wood, grows up, deals with life, becomes a man, is made of obsidian or some shit. He's always been involved in cinematography, and he incorporates it all into his live show, and his dramatic, orchestral sound.
If you ask what his live show is like, there's a full video of one of his performances on youtube.
THIS IS SOME REAL SHIT.
Really looking forward to this!
I must admit I am most excited about this! I'm just hoping he'll be at night on outdoor stage. Anyone else?
I can't wait for this set! a girlfriend saw him in SF and saidit was one of the best shows she's ever seen --and she sees a lot of shows. I guess he also said that for his next run of dates, he wants to play with an orchestra, which would make this set even better. not sure he could pull that off with a festival set, but either way it's going to be great.
I can't wait to see him, ugh I'm so fucking happy

Everything I clicked on had this horrible flanger phase thing going on, like he was underwater and the signal was cutting in and out and I thought, Jesus I will never be high enough for this and I go to his Wikipedia page and he's an award winning video guy etc etc and I thought Joseph and Mary he must be good at something, because this is the most irritating thing I ever heard and he's got the bucks, you can see it. Then I clicked another thread and lo and behold my flash player was putting the effect on everything. Without the effect I'll be there, but this reminds me of
a Wagnerian opera… Tristan & Isolde light. (But not wavy, thank God). The monster suits are awesome. Thanks for the tip.
One of my favourite finds in the small print. Really looking forward to this!
I liked the music after listening to one song, and then I started listening to Iron (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vSkb0kDacjs), recognised it from the Assassin's Creed Revelations trailer and I flipped out - SO PUMPED.
Damn this is legit. Orchestra or bust though.
I just hope he's in the mojave, I hate going to the outdoor. ugh.

Wondered how he can afford to do the orchestra but now that I've read more about his video production work, I suppose he can pull it off. His tour lists no US shows other than Coachella, so for me he's gone from total unknown to must see.
praying for no woodkid/outkast conflict.
His album is incredible.
Huge get. I can only make Firefly and Gov ball this year, the biggest thing I'm mad about is not being able to see Woodkid.

This show looks awesome , just too many things Friday night . I'm probably skipping the knife if they clash.
Spicy pie is mainstream shit.
never heard of him before watching the first video
I'm highly interested. One heck of a stage show and add to it the orch and drums....looks cool.
Thanks for the heads up
Just gave Woodkid my first listen right now. Wow this is some epic sounding shit. I just don't know how itd translate to an early day set, or without an orchestra.
an orchestra would be awesome, i saw him twice this year, both times there wasn't a full one, the drums and horns were there, but no strings. i sure hope he gets a night slot, just wouldn't be the same during the day
even without the strings tho, both shows were incredible

Finally watched through the live show. Holy cow. This is going to be phenomenal.
That's the sunset slot question answered then ...epic
Come a long long, come a long long way
