Thread: Worst Conflicts?

    Default Re: Worst Conflicts?

    My gf, brother and I are oddly heartbroken over Chvrches and Bombay Bicycle Club, two acts we thought for sure would not conflict. I was worried about Chvrches conflicting with all the excellent stuff Sat night but took for granted that BBC would play unopposed during the weaker Saturday day. Who's idea was it to put Chvrches and Holy Ghost in the day?

    Also sad about the 10 minute or so AF and Disclosure overlap even though I knew it was coming. Overall though I am shockingly pleased with how well these turned out for me. Virtually everything I really care about I can see in full, and all my losses outside of the ones I mentioned above were on my "B" list. I'll have something I'm excited to see in every time slot, these turned out beautifully.

    Neko Case vs. Afghan Whigs
    Bombay Bicycle Club vs. Chvrches
    Ty Segall vs. Temples
    Blood Orange vs. Superchunk

    I'll split one or two of those 50/50.

    lotta talk about Nicolas Jaar conflicting... He's probably just playing a dj set in the Yuma, and obviously playing live in Darkside. I'd defintitely pick Bonobo or Shlohmo over a Nico DJ set and catch Darkside the next day.

    I have to disagree with this. Nico's DJ set is going to be nothing like the DARKSIDE set and both will be amazing. Nothing against Bonobo and Shlomho, both of whom I like quite a bit, but for me, as soon as I saw they added Nico Jaar's DJ set to the lineup, it became a can't miss set. He's that good. See, e.g.,
    Darkside (1/25)
    Oneohtrix Point Never (2/7)
    Four Tet (3/7) / Voices from the Lake (live) (3/7)
    London Grammar (3/25)
    Trentemoller (4/5)
    Factory Floor (4/15)
    Coachella (4/18-4/20)
    Haxan Cloak (5/15)

    Saw Holy Ghost at Webster Hall last week. They put on a really lively show and are musically pretty tight. The unfortuntate thing is that it won't be an evening set, as their stage set up plays well in a darker setting.

If there isn't anything else on around that time, or after them, then I'd go with staying poolside. Plus they are from California so you'll have plenty of chances to see them.

    strfkr on at 2:55 is the only thing I would love to see but being poolside is more important to me.

    Pretty much unless you want to see outkast aaaaaaallllllll the way from the back. For a hip hop show, i'd rather be a little closer than the front gate.

    Any recommendations on the Ty Segall vs. Temples conflict? I've never seen either, so not sure which way to go on this one.

    I really don't know what I'm going to do about Little Dragon & Calvin Harris!!! I know I can find Calvin Harris in Vegas anytime.. But Vegas has a different energy than Coachella. Ughhh what to do.. what to do?! Is anyone else conflicted with this one?

    Temples vs White Lies is soul-crushing for me.....but I'm gonna go with Temples.
    I arrived in America's airport with clothings, US dollars, and a jar of gypsy tears to protect me from AIDS.

    I think a lot of people are overrating how hard it is to get a "good spot" at Coachella. Even for RHCP last year I got there about 10 minutes before the set and was fairly close. For the sets I actually "camped out" for (Postal Service --> the XX --> Phoenix) I was right on the rail by the time Phoenix began. There's just too much walking around and stuff going on to think you're screwed unless you get to a show 45-60 mins early.

    Maybe I had a unique experience, but its about 10x better than Bonnaroo in that regard.

    a lot of people cleared out sunday because of the sandstorm. i've never seen everything so empty.

    that said, things are pretty fluid, and the only time it's hard to get a good spot is for a hyped act in a tent. future islands could be a nightmare.

    But take into account a 10 minute walk, and being who knows how far away from the stage.
