I'm in for FJM at Humphrey's.
45 minutes into the sold-out Adam Ant show, after he'd played "Kings of the Wild Frontier" in its entirety, he finally addressed the crowd: "Helloooo, San Bernardino!"
I'll be at the Adam Ant show at the Observatory Saturday night. Anyone else?
Mrs gazer and I have a tradition of battling over how early we get there each day and how late we stay.
Food tradition used to be breakfast at Carrow's in Palm Springs, but that shut down a...
I would love a Slowdive return.
The new King Gizzard & The Wizard Lizard record, Flying Microtonal Banana, is another dandy. While their last one, Nonagon Infinity, was almost all in 7/8 time, this one is back to (mostly) 4/4. Some...
The last time I saw the Moody Blues, I was surprised by how old they looked. I wrote a review of it in an alternative newspaper and the editor used "Rock of aged" as the headline.
That was in...
General beer festival tips:
-- Eat a good meal before you go so you don't drink too much on an empty stomach. Even if festivals offer food, they often run out, have long lines or present other...
Hmm. I have a reservation for this year's fest. Article doesn't talk about timing. I hope the demo doesn't start until after July.
I love the Avalanches and am excited to finally see them at Coachella, but if you didn't know, their recent shows in Australia featured just one original member and (reportedly good) hired guns...
Empire of the Sun are playing a bunch of U.S. dates and the Avalanches are only opening for the two with asterisks.
04-14 Indio, CA - Coachella
04-15 Las Vegas, NV - The Chelsea at the...
I'll check out Utrecht, thanks. My trip is the first part of May. Dang, would've been fun to meet up over there.
Stone Roses or Jack Johnson.
Looks like I'm going back to Belgium in May. Will probably go to Amsterdam and possibly either Rotterdam or The Hague. I'm well covered on things to do in Belgium but would be happy for...
Slow down, Columbo. One question at a time here.
I'm glad someone finally asked this question.
Starting to look like I'm going back to Belgium in May for the Toer de Gueuze.
They didn't headline when they played in 2010...
The new Grandaddy record is very good. Not a departure from their early 2000s releases, but that's fine with me.
Does Grandaddy playing the Fonda and Pappy and Harriet's in May (FYF Presents) rule them out for FYF?
New Car Seat Headrest KEXP performance:
It occurred to me that Boss Hog would be a good fit for this fest. They have a new album out soon and have been touring.
After posting a meme about a million men enjoying peace and quiet at home while women were marching:
Neighborhood Creep will always have my respect for sneaking a 750ml Surly bottle into the fest and opening it in the Mojave last year. Best bottle share ever.
Hopslam is one of those beers that...
Agreed on Banks and Steelz. Best thing about their FYF show was Kool Keith.
Canned craft beer recommendations:
CRSSD had a faux-craft beer tent last time I went, but they had a legit one the previous time.
2) Read the info on the page that sells shuttle passes. You can park at some places but not most hotels. We've take Uber/Lyft to the shuttle stops in the past.
3) They do bypass some...
You say that people will still hunt for small-batch. My point is that if not for companies like Constellation and InBev, people wouldn't have to hunt for it. Those companies are notorious for ...
Just a guess based on demographics. You disagree?
Edit: From a 2016 Desert Sun article:
Whoa, whoa, whoa I can't walk around with a beer?Yeah, the fest made that decision right from the start,...
I think it's Coachella who decides this and that there's a much larger risk of underage people getting people to buy them beer at Coachella than at Stagecoach (or Desert Trip). If the ABC catches...
Yeah, sours can be great. What I don't get is the appeal of drinking a stout in the desert heat.
Royal Trux, Avalanches and King Gizz would be great.
I hope they're not paying those bikers in beer like the bikers who managed security at Altamont...
Toddler who died of brain injuries had ‘thug life’ written on his stomach, authorities say
Wouldn't be too surprised if The Avalanches bring out Danny Brown or maybe Biz Markie. Would love it if they brought out Jennifer Herrema or Jonathan Donahue.
Madonna vs Coldcut, who was fantastic despite playing to an empty tent and should be brought back
LCD Soundsystem vs the Pixies
How could I hate a man who, during a show with Brian Wilson and Al Jardine on their 2012 reunion tour, gave us the rare treat of hearing his then-16-year-old daughter sing "Sail On Sailor" in hopes...
I wish The The would play Coachella.
I think the FYF set suffered from them playing unreleased material that people weren't familiar with yet but that they sounded good overall.
It's rare that I didn't see at least one boardie in the craft beer barn at any given point the last two years.
Isn't the bigger issue with LASHP that FYF has outgrown it?
Coachella is special for everyone.
They're not on Panorama but I'm hoping for Royal Trux. Seems like a good fit.
