One day till Coachella bitch!
Ok I know how that sounds. I didn't mean that they sound alike, I meant it more as a 'here's this really important old-school hip hop band from the 90s that helped define what good hip hop is for the...
I'd prioritize as
They're like A Tribe Called Quest for Mexico. Except they never disbanded. Started out with old-school hip hop beats singing about social problems in Mexico and...
So I went to see the Presets last night here in Seattle and they were TONS of fun live. The crowd basically lost its sh!t every song. Wish all shows were like that. Hadn't sweat that much in a while.
I'm confused. Did you mean Tango Pit?
Blarg I want to be there at Bajofondo but. It's Paul McCartney fercrissakes. Dammit.
Yea I think the only way to go on this one is first half of Beirut (RUN!) -> last half of Morrissey. Here's hoping he saves some Smiths song towards the end of his set.
You know what we need? An official petition to stop petitions. :)
Cloud Cult conflict!? Nope, Cloud Cult beats out Ida Maria, sorry :(
I'm going to see them tonight in Seattle. Friday's just too stacked with good music at night and otherwise I'd probably miss them. Plus it's a nice Coachella warmup.
I want to hear Franz playing LCD Soundsystem's All My Friends. I know it's from two years ago but hearing it live would be sweet.
I'm still in denial about this. They're coming back to the poster. They have to :( blarg.
Kinky is overplayed, they've been twice to Coachella and have been up to Seattle about once a year since 2005...
Zoe I would have been all over for Coachella... oh well. I'll see this if there are...
Cholo-chella :) nice!
Yeah the Murakami question is a good one. I think he gets more of a pass than Fairey from the 'serious art' world mostly because he went through the standard channels - galleries, museums, limited...
Bah. When I saw this for some reason I thought of Los Fabulosos Cadillacs and got all excited thinking about hearing 'Matador' live after all these years.
El Gran Silencio live... meh, it'll be...
Also, comparing Fairey to Warhol is moot at this point since it's been over 30 years since Warhol appropriated pop icons and brought them into the high art world. At this point appropriating pop...
Herbert makes this really cerebral-yet-poppy, loungey electronica, using samples from random noise. Check out Scale, the first three tracks are good/cool/fun.
His sound is distinctive and...
This sounds GREAT. I've wanted to see Herbert live for a few years now. Electro-Antony? Yes please.
I saw her at Sasquatch last year, she played the mainstage and the show was actually pretty good. She did her bring-everyone-on-stage schtick and it worked ok this time. She didn't play gunshots...
Hate to say it but I think this is it. We've had two rounds of adds and have a 'final' version of the poster. I'd like to see more adds, it's probably just way less likely now...
Portishead, Animal Collective, The Knife, Spoon, Vaselines, Yo La Tengo - I'd probably fly somewhere to see all these in the same day :O very cool.
I just went to an Irish party with a Radiohead cake and was wondering about this - Radiohead aren't Irish right? On wikipedia it says they're English, from Oxfordshire.
> Radiohead are an English...
I'm pretty happy with what we've got. Assuming one last sub-headliner to replace Winehouse that's all we need.
Hercules + Love Affair
David Byrne. Pleeeeeease.
No Doubt Returning To An Amphitheatre Or Pavilion Near You
Hm. Not very excited about...
One of the things that makes Coachella great is the wide variety of music you get. One of those genres that's a good complement is the more mellowy stuff we get from people like Cat Power, Regina...
This thread is awesome.
I didn't see GT this weekend - saw him @Seattle in Jan and caught Blonde Redhead instead.
At this point the hype dust has settled down and I don't think anyone is...
Ya dudes. Manu Chao was f'in awesome. Made Sunday worth it for me.
Guess all the people I saw dancing like mad would have to disagree with the few posters here :)
Damn you April Fool's day! This was awesome hah. Just have a sense of humor about it people.
Tiny Mix Fest 2007
The mighty Neutral Milk Hotel, the most indie-celebrated band of the past decade, is reforming to play one of the two days of TMFest in what Jeff has promised will be a one-off...
Got mine @ Seattle - GA1 GA0 10 - 15
Dudes, it's dance music. Yes they're mashups, yes it's been done to death. But these are spastic, 2 to 3 second long, indie-meets-pop mashups. THAT hadn't been done before. Yes his show is all a...
These are all bands my friends love and I actually like but saw them once before and don't really need to see again.
Except for RHCP...
I'll be there in Seattle! Woo!
Ah nevermind, I just clicked the 'Register' link again and left the word RIOTTT instead of email address and then it went through.
Hey so um yeah has anyone registered successfully here? What referral email did you use? :|
Well the list moves as the weeks pass but right now it's:
F: Bjork, JAMC, Faithless
S: Arcade Fire, LCD Soundsystem, Regina Spektor
S: Manu Chao, Junior Boys, Rodrigo y Gabriela
I made a list of bands I didn't know from the lineup and this band stuck out. They're from the Democratic Republic of Congo, they play a cool mix of traditional music with electronic beats and a...
She didn't play with the New Pornos last year at Bumbershoot either. Dang I may have to watch their set after all! Neko!!
Yes thank you for any and all info on this. I haven't really seen this info anywhere else so. Thanks.
Heh heh heh. :)
Oh dude please please let The Gossip come to Coachella. Listen Up, Standing In The Way Of Control, Yr Mangled Heart, my oh my.
Cafe Tacuba. When I was 14 I heard Rarotonga and was lost to them. Msically equivalent to Radiohead for rock in Mexico. They're awesome.
Recently, Arcade Fire. This might be only because I'm...
Ok just finished my first spin of Neon Bible. Loving it so far. Black Mirror is starting up again and I'm excited to hear it all over again.
Very very cool. I don't care what PFork says :) it's...
Back to DP. Does anyone have any links or confirmation of this? Pollstar shows nothing, the WaMu Theater shows nothing. I really really hope this is true. I saw DP last year at Coachella but just for...
Neutral. Milk. Hotel.
Girl Talk live shows rule. Girl Talk CD gets old but the live show doesn't.
And yes I heard about the Vegas show. Don't care.
So last year an Iñárritu ripoff wins for Best Picture and this year, when he's actually made a good move based on that same style, he gets the shaft. Bah.
Yes Crash was good but I had a really...
I can see people moshing to Pluto. That'd be cool.
