    That was off the top of my head. And I switched out Lily Allen for Air because I forgot how I found out about her. That might be the worst reason ever for not seeing an artist at a festival.

    Noisettes - Downloaded Don't Give Up off NME.com ages ago, then found the single for Burn on Itunes, didn't hear from them again till now. But now I see them everywhere.
    Amy Winehouse - Heard the hype about her before I heard the tunes, decided I'd pass, then heard Rehab and could not get it out of my head. Got the album after that and fell in love with the vintage sound and unique quality of her voice.
    Silversun Pickups- Had Kissing Families on a new music cd I got out of a Filter mag back in the summer of 05, didn't hear about them again til I heard they'd be opening for Snow Patrol on their tour this past March. Got Carnavas, loved it, made sure to get to the SP gigs early, rocked my ass off.
    Rufus Wainwright- Saw the video for April Fools (off the first album) in the middle of the night, you know when they actually play videos... adored it, bought album used at the wherehouse hahaha, loved it. Have bought every album since.
    Jarvis Cocker- Ummm he was in this little band called Pulp.... as soon as I heard Fat Children I knew his solo effort would be a smash.
    Arctic Monkeys- Way back before they even released a full album in the UK, some brit pals of mine send me some of their demos/singles. I was hooked from the opening chords of Bet You Look Good....
    Interpol- I think I first heard PDA on KROQ or something and had it on a mix tape... oh how things have changed, hahaha. I always liked it but for some reason never got the album. When Antics came out I stalled buying it but heard C'mere and had to buy it after that. Slowly, but surely became obsessed, then went back and bought Turn On The Bright Lights.

    The Cribs- Checked out Hey Scensters after a friends suggestion, loved it, bought the album.
    Fields- Researched them as a result of this fest and a review in spin I think.
    The Fratellis- Kept seeing their stuff in friends lastfm charts, got the album, loved it.
    Peter Bjorn and John- First saw thei name on the poster for this fest, then saw the vid for Young Folks on Subterrnean, bought the album.
    Hot Chip - Kept seeing it in friends last fm, bought the album
    Regina Spektor- Saw the video for US on VH1, thought she was stunningly beautiful as was her unique voice.
    Blonde Redhead- Got 23, for Coachella research purposes, surprised by how much I liked it.
    LCD Soundsytem- That Daft Punk is Playing song was playing in my head non-stop for like 6 months after I saw the video on subterrenean I think, love the new album lots.
    The Rapture- reccomendation from a friend was love from the intro of the first song (the most recent album, still need to get the older stuff)
    Kings Of Leon - That damn catchy as hell song The Bucket.
    Travis- Way back when I was still in High school saw a video for a little song called Why Does It Aalways Rain on Me. Been a fan girl ever since.
    The Decemberists- Had heard of them, but didn't really get into them for a long time. Then one day on a whim I downloaded Shiny, and adored it. Next came We Both Go Down Together and Engine Driver. Then slowly but surely I collected and fell in love with all their stuff. Seeing them live in October of last year only served to solidify my obsession.
    Arcade Fire- Randomly downloaded Rebellion for a mix cd I was making, love love loved it. Bought Funeral, took a while for the album to take hold, but once it did.... amazing. Got Neon Bible as soon it was out songs like My Body is a Cage and No Cars Go felt instantly familliar to me but new all at the same time, it was officially love.

    Mando Diao- Saw the video of God Knows on the Dive on Fuse, got Hurricane Bar, thought it was mediocre. Forgot about them a bit til I was going somewhere with my best friend and she was listening to their newest record, I was hooked after one listen.
    Teddybears- Downloaded Yours to Keep for free off Itunes loved it, realized they did that Cobrastyle song afterwards.
    Klaxons - A friend of mine is all obsessed with them and insisted I check them out. Watched the vid for Golden Skans and didn't quite no what to make of it. Forgot about them for a while, but gave them another try when I found out they'd be playing... Myths has been playing quite regularly on my ipod since then.
    CSS- Kept seeing them in my firends lastfm's, was intrigued by song titles like Let's Make Love and listen to Death From Above & Music is my Hot Hot Sex. Got the album, was obsessed after the first listen. Saw the video for Alala on subterrnean, decided this band is to fucking awesome. Since then have heard their music being blasted on several before show mixes and like 5 different concerts, makes for fun dancing time before the main act comes on.
    The Kooks- Listened to You Don't Love Me on the reccomendation of a friend loved it, followed it up with songs like Naive and Sofa Song and Want You Back, listened to them a lot summer of 06. Will be cool to see them live.
    Jose' Gonzalez- Yeah.... Heartbeats.
    Amos Lee - Saw him perform Keep It Loose, Keep it Tight on Conan. Loved his voice, got the album.
    Lily Allen- Another where I heard her hype before her music and tried to avoid it, but Smile is so fucking infectious I couldn't help but get the rest of the album.
    Damien Rice - Saw the video for Volcano on VH1 in the middle of the night ages and ages ago, love the sound of his and Lisa's voice together. Went out and bought the album the next day listened to it non-stop for like 3 months. Seeing him and Lisa do their thing live back in November 06 was nearly spiritual.
    Kaiser Chiefs- Randomly downloaded I Predict a Roit, loved it. Got Employment listened to it all through summer of 05', saw them live that fall was freaking blown away by their uber energetic live show.
    Air- Heard SexyBoy in that movie 10 Things I Hate About You, searched for ages to find out who did it.
    2005, 2007, 2011, 2012 W1, 2012 W2, 2013 W1, 2013 W2, and SOON 2014 W1 & 2014 W2!!

    Good topic, John.

    Friday
    Tokyo Police Club - Coachella homework this year
    (end of) Satellite Party - Became a huge Jane's Addiction fan in 2003; they reunited, so I went and bought "Nothing's Shocking"....I'll watch Perry Farrell anytime
    Silversun Pickups - They were one of the first myspace bands to befriend me back in early 2005. Saw my first show the following August during their Spaceland residency....bought "Pikul" the next day, saw them every ensuing opportunity (ten and counting) until they got huge and started touring with shitty bands.
    (beginning of) Rufus Wainwright - Jennie
    Jesus and Mary Chain - Long heard the name bandied about as a Mogwai influence....checked them out when the line-up dropped
    Jarvis Cocker - Pulp, again from Jennie
    (first half of) Interpol - Randomly caught their set at the 2003 KROQ Weenie Roast.....blew me away.
    (second half of) Sonic Youth - Same thing with JAMC, only I checked them out years ago. Got a copy of "Daydream Nation" from my friend Ryan and never looked back.
    Bjork - I had heard about her for years....my friend David finally broke me in about 3 years ago and hooked me up with "Homogenic"

    Saturday
    Fields - Coachella 2007 homework
    Pharoahe Monch - He was on that Mos Def song "Oh No!" back in...I want to say 2001.
    The Frames - The aforementioned David told me about them 4 years ago. Jennie and Tessa enforced it.
    Regina Spektor - Jennie
    (end of) Hot Chip - Chris
    The New Pornographers - Coachella '07 homework, due to Greg's enormous worship
    The Decemberists - Got "Her Majesty" as a gift a few years ago and wasn't impressed; gave "The Crane Wife" a shot based on Brandon's "best album of 2006" ranking and did a complete 180
    The Arcade Fire - After months of nauseating hype, I downloaded "Rebellion", "Laika", and "Wake Up" from Merge.com in January 2005; tried to commit suicide when I realized I had just missed three Troubadour shows a week prior
    (first half of) Blonde Redhead - Heard about them when they opened for Interpol in 2004 (which I didn't see); saw them at Detour in October and was extremely impressed
    (second half of) Girl Talk - Brad/Chris/Tessa/everyone wouldn't shut up, so I gave it a shot. Not usually my style, but undeniably fun
    Sparklehorse - Coachella 2007 homework
    (first half of) The Rapture - I don't know, but I'm seeing them because Jennie and Ronnie will be there
    The Good, The Bad, & The Queen - Coachella 2007 homework

    Sunday
    Lupe Fiasco - My brother Ian
    Tapes N' Tapes - Adam
    The Coup - Greg
    Explosions in the Sky - My friend Seth
    The Roots - One of the first hip-hop groups I got into in '99. I heard they were live instrument and was instantly intrigued
    CSS - Jennie
    Willie Nelson - I think I read about him getting busted for drugs in Rolling Stone when I was a kid
    Placebo - Jennie sent me their cover of "Bigmouth Strikes Again"
    Air - Coachella 2005
    Manu Chao - Brad made a sweet live mix
    (end of) Damien Rice - Same as the Frames; David started it, Jennie and Tessa finished it. "Closer" didn't hurt
    Rage Against the Machine - I thought "Evil Empire" had a sick album cover in '96, so I gave it a shot. Loved them immediately.
