Thread: Dont sleep on the RAPTURE!!!!!!!!!!

  1. #1

    Default Dont sleep on the RAPTURE!!!!!!!!!!

    You have not lived until you have seen this band live.

    Prepare to move. I think they will be one of the sleeper sets this year as they never disappoint live.

    You can watch their full set played at the BE THE RIOTTT! festival in SF last November at www.betheriottt.com. Ill shit. They are fun to watch.

    Full sets from other Coachella artists like Girl Talk and some others will also be featured on the site soon. Girl Talks performance at the festival was the San Francisco performance of the year even though he got kicked off after 10 minutes. Peep a preview here - http://youtube.com/watch?v=hLWJVUDqejs

    I hope they let girl talk at least bring SOME of the crowd on stage. It would be epic though highly doubtful. Girl Talk playing in one of those igloos would suit his set better as his sets are perfect for tight spaced hedonism

    Any recommendations for specific albums/singles? I have never heard of them, but the 30 second song previews on itunes have me intrigued.

    dude - ite the RAPTURE!

    you can watch their whole live set to get an idea at www.betheriottt.com. Just sign-up really quick and your in there - it'll definitely give you an idea of the Rapture's dancefloor frenzy party music.

    But yeah - house of jealous lovers and sister savior are my faves but they all kick ass.

    I was slightly disappointed.

    I think I would have liked them more if I hadn't had so many people tell me how great they were at Coachella last time. I was expecting too much.

    Stop saying "they never disappoint". I just proved you wrong.

    Seriously, nothing against them, I just didn't understand the hype. I saw them with The Cure, Mogwai, Interpol and Cooper Temple Clause. The Rapture were my least favorite. Actually, Scarling was there too and THEY were my least favorite, but I didn't see the whole set.

    Relax, I'm just teasing you. I wouldn't have been disappointed if I didn't have friends like you telling me how amazing they were. If I had just walked in with no pre-conceptions, I might have enjoyed it more. However, I was disappointed...therefore your statement is false.

    thats some stiff competition your are putting them up against.

    anyways - completely diff style of music there. you cant compare mogwai to the rapture.

    but yeah. ok. to each his own

    they are only disapointing, if you are one of those people who goes to shows and just stands there.

    I saw the Rapture @ the Glasshouse and they were tight!!!!! me and my friend were dancing through there entire set all drunk!! it got to the point where the whole crowd was dancing and moving so much that she lost her flip flops and we had to wait until the end when everyone left before we finally found them.

    i just hope they dont put the Rapture and !!! on at the same time. I plan on dancing to both performances

    People don't dance no more, (what!)
    They just stand there like this, (uh huh)
    They cross their arms and stare you down and drink and moan and piss (that's right!)

    #1 on my list for sure. Always loved em, but never had the chance to catch em live. Tokyo Police Club is up there too, but I'm seeing them with Cold War Kids a month before so it kinda brings it down a notch. I think Arctic Monkeys move into #2.


    Not that any of you give a shit. Anyways LCD is probably 3 and Lily moves into a tight 4th, since she's hot, but only cause she makes good music. She'd be a dog otherwise. Kinda like Meg White.

    LCD Soundsystem's show is better. I'll watch both. I hear Hot Chip is almost as good. Definitely check out !!!'s show, they'll kill.

    i have heard the same thing from quite a few people...that the rapture put on a good set at coachella, but the couple times i have heard their songs, it sounded like horrible noise to me. maybe i heard the wrong songs, but it was really bad, imho.

    I will sleep on them and I will be a-ok. I don't think I can take the lead singer's vocals in concert again.

    I've seen The Rapture 3x and they've always been great. Talk about cowbell! The Rapture and LCD love to rock the cowbell.

    I saw the Rapture on the Curiosa tour, and they weren't bad, but definitely not great. Maybe it had to do with the fact that they played in the afternoon, but they might play in the afternoon at Coachella. Either way, I hope I just saw an off-day.

    I just think it's funny how much hype I see posted on here. The fact is, pretty much every band on this line-up is SOMEONE's favorite band. And, at every bands set, there's going to be someone that hates them. It's all cool...variety is a good thing.

    I liked both of those songs. The problem was the other ones.
