Coachella better have the balls to ask them politely to do the same.

man.... i would love to go.

03-05-2007, 12:36 PM
I'm going to the first night in London. I'm imagining a Daydream Nation heavy set at Coachella, as they haven't played some of those tracks live in a very long time.

03-05-2007, 12:40 PM
....and i'm going to Primavera. The presale tix only cost 85 euro for 3 days.

daydream nation has its own wikipedia entry for those who might be so interested. no i am not going to post the link. good read tho.

03-05-2007, 03:12 PM
that and the "spiderland" set is classic.
now if only they can talk neutral milk hotel into doing the same thing...

Woah, that's amazing. I'm not sure if I'd necessarily want them to do the same at Coachella, just because they have so much other great stuff that's not on Daydream Nation. But if it happened, I wouldn't complain.

Primavera is turning into quite the event. Lucky Spaniards.

03-05-2007, 05:34 PM
son of a bitch. wow.

03-05-2007, 05:38 PM
I really want to go to one of those shows.

03-07-2007, 11:42 AM
Damn, that's one of the coolest things I've heard in a while. I'm not expecting this for Coachella but if we're lucky, they'll at least play a handful of DN songs for us.

Wasn't there a series of gigs like this that weren't Primavera? I remember Belle & Sebastian playing If You're Feeling Sinister and nothing else so maybe I'm making it up.

I do kinda love Daydream Nation.

03-07-2007, 05:13 PM
atp had a series like that. club shows in limeyland where bands performed complete albums. mudhoney, john spencer were others.

03-07-2007, 05:23 PM
these gigs (sy and slint) are part of the atp series.

03-07-2007, 05:25 PM
primavera is part of the atp series?

03-07-2007, 05:27 PM
no. the london shows are part of it.
sorry for the confusion.

03-07-2007, 05:32 PM
Remember that Sonic Youth show at the El Rey? That was cool.

03-07-2007, 06:23 PM
Daydream nation is their best album (Goo comes in a close second), there are other songs i want to here though. Don't get me wrong it would be way cool to see the entire album performed live. It might take away from the anticipation of what they are going to play next. I saw Primus perform Sailing the Seas of Cheese in its entirety and it was epic. However, they played the album in its entirety for the second half of the show so we got to here songs from other albums as well.

When did SY play the El Rey? I saw them at Little Radio. That was cool

I'm going to the first Daydream Nation date. So I'm hoping for a more varied set at Coachella.

I have tickets to see Slint doing Spiderland as well. It's going to be a fun summer.

omg wtf bbq
