this is a minor conflict early on the day and i will probably leave any of them early for explosions in the sky. but which one is the better act?

04-24-2007, 02:02 PM
grizzly bear will be a good band for early sunday.

04-24-2007, 02:06 PM
The Kooks by far...

Inside In/Inside Out is one of the better albums of the last year.

04-24-2007, 02:07 PM
The Kooks. Ugh.


04-24-2007, 02:32 PM
Grizzly Bear!

04-24-2007, 03:14 PM
The Kooks pale in comparison to Grizzly Bear. No brainer.

04-24-2007, 03:16 PM
where is The Coup on this list

04-24-2007, 03:35 PM
I've seen the Kooks live. They rock. I'm definately not missing them.

I hope everyone else wants to see Grizzly Bear though!

04-24-2007, 05:03 PM
so i guess its the kooks........

04-24-2007, 09:33 PM
I am gonna be forced to watch the Kooks cause I wanna be as near to the front as possible for CSS. I serisouly do not like the guys voice.

04-25-2007, 11:52 AM
Kooks, no doubt.

Grizzly Bear. I do like the Kooks, however there is not much originality there. Grizzly Bear is one of a kind, there is no other artist on the Coachella lineup that sounds anything like them.

04-25-2007, 05:51 PM
you got a point there.......

I saw Grizzly Bear open for TV on the Radio last year and they put on a great show. The songs off of Yellow House take a completely different sound live. I think I would go with Explosions in the Sky, but Grizzly Bear are definitely worth checking out.

i saw grizzly bear here in chicago in february and it was a damn good show. they're an amazing band imo and i think they're more worthwhile than the kooks. not sayin' i don't like the kooks but i think grizzly bear is much more worth your time.

05-09-2007, 05:33 AM
im glad i made the right decision and saw g-bear

Didn't know squat about either but ended up at Grizzly Bear and I was blown away. maybe it was The Warlock that played a part but none the less they were amazing. Still holding out for a live recording of their set.

05-09-2007, 01:11 PM
Kooks far greater than any bear.

05-09-2007, 05:21 PM
The Kooks were pretty entertaining.

05-09-2007, 06:31 PM
All I know is that a Grizzly Bear could kick the crap out of a shark.

05-09-2007, 07:50 PM
The Kooks were magnificent. =D

05-10-2007, 06:25 PM
Grizzly Bear killed the Warlock. Great fucking set.

05-10-2007, 06:56 PM
I saw the Kooks at Coachella but missed them on David Letterman last night.

The Kooks?

07-17-2009, 08:02 AM
I'd say I regret missing Grizzly Bear... But I don't. I think the added material of Veckatimest makes their sets even better. The Kooks, on the other hand... Shouldn't have released a 2nd record.

You should learn to let go of pride and admit you made a huge mistake here. Nobody will think any less of you.

oh man. wish I'd seen grizzly bear.

07-17-2009, 02:09 PM
I didn't see either in 2007. But i will be making up for it in October when i will be seeing them twice. ;) I'm referring to Grizzly Bear, of course.

good times . . .

grizzly bear --> rodrgio y gabriela --> konono no1

07-17-2009, 04:08 PM
*smacks forehead*

07-17-2009, 04:10 PM
nice avatar, amyzzzzzz. sure wish Dungen would tour the US when I was in the country.

07-17-2009, 05:13 PM
good times . . .

grizzly bear --> rodrgio y gabriela --> konono no1

I wanted to see Konono no.1 so badly. actually, those 3 back to back sounds awesome.

07-17-2009, 09:36 PM
Kooks? The actual conflict was Grizzly Bear vs Explosions in the Sky. That sucked. If Grizzly Bear's set had been a half hour earlier, it wouldn't have been an issue. Well, those 10 minutes or so I saw were great.

07-17-2009, 10:15 PM
Grizzly's Coachella set didn't do a lot for me. I guess it was too mellow for what I needed in the middle of the hot day like that. But the Wiltern show recently was in a whole different class, maybe because I knew more than The Knife that time. That was one of my favorite gigs of the year so far.

07-23-2009, 07:50 PM
I saw the Kooks at BFD 2008 and they are totally cheesy.

I have seen Grizzly Bear 3 times and not by choice. I don't like them and I don't get their hype, but I would still choose them over the Kooks.

07-24-2009, 11:07 AM
every time I see this thread, I envision the Kooks being ravaged by an actual grizzly bear and it makes me laugh

07-25-2009, 09:42 AM
Yeah, that's pretty funny because it wouldn't be nearly as brutal as a kook being mauled by a silverback gorilla.

07-25-2009, 09:51 AM
Grizzly Bear was bland in 2007.

I don't give a fuck about the Kooks.

07-25-2009, 01:35 PM
I've just remembered I've seen The Kooks.

07-25-2009, 02:00 PM
MP...that phone message you have in your signature is slightly disturbing

07-25-2009, 02:03 PM
I know.

It's possibly the bleakest thing I've heard in the last year, and I can't quite shake it.

Imagine calling up your favourite band to tell them you are absolutely profoundly unhappy with your life?

Still though, The Kooks.

07-25-2009, 02:06 PM
hopefully his next call was to a suicide prevention hotline...

sorry, Kooks

07-25-2009, 02:07 PM
Maybe we could get the guy to phone up The Kooks and bleak them out so much they kill themselves.

07-25-2009, 02:14 PM
I'm not going to stop you...

different subject for a moment, just this morning, my daughter asked me if she could borrow all of my Arcade Fire and Radiohead to put on her Ipod...it was a proud parental moment, i must admit

07-25-2009, 02:37 PM
There was tension for the first half of that sentence when I thought "The Kooks" were going to be at the end of it, but it all worked out okay in the end.

Kudos to you and your awesome audio parenting.
