RIP Alan :'(
That is one hell of a lineup!
Just got tix for Titus Andronicus tomorrow. The fuckin Che Cafe, huh? High school all over again.
I was front and center for the marathon of Kraftwerk > Portishead > Prince. To this day, it is the best concert-going night of my life. My buddy found a bag of joints on the ground and we smoked them...
please grab a Sprite
Loved the Oasis Dome year. Goth Trad into SBTRKT into Lil B was the best!
Can't wait to finally see him. Definitely my #1 most anticipated Yuma act.
Had a great time at their Balboa Park show. Stoked for round 2!
I'm a huge fan of Kurt Vile, and I thought his set at Coachella was just okay. Certain parts where he and his band jammed were great, but most of the time he just seemed...bored and lazy. I might...
If we are going with a John Reis project, I'd rather see a Drive Like Jehu reunion. But that's extremely unlikely. I'll take Crypt though.
They played the bowl again in September 2011 with Arctic Monkeys and Panda Bear.
That's just about how long Joyce Manor's set was last year.
DIIV was AWESOME yesterday. Perfect mellow Sunday afternoon set. Zachary and Andrew jammed so hard during some songs. They're definitely now one of my new favorite bands.
1. Sigur Ros...WOW
2. Bat For Lashes
3. Local Natives
5. Tame Impala
HM: TNGHT, Palma Violets, Danny Brown, Action Bronson, Cloud Nothings, Raider Klan
That set was unbelievable. Favorite set of the fest BY FAR.
I concur that they were awesome at Coachella 2011
Hell yes! TNGHT is awesome. If they play they will definitely smash it.
Agreed on all counts. Their 2011 show on the Outdoor and their recent Palladium show were incredible. Honestly, they're a band who keeps getting better and better.
Damn that looks incredible. I want this so much. This would be PERFECT to close either the Gobi or Mojave. C'MON GV BRING US DEL
Gold Fields were the best of the fest for me. Icona Pop was awesome too. I thought Of Montreal sucked, but whatever. Great weekend (and relatively cheap).
WOW Talabot was AMAZING last night. American Royalty killed it as well. This is already an awesome festival!
More Replacements news...
So Far (Though I have tons more albums I still need to listen too):
John Talabot- Fin
Cloud Nothings- Attack on Memory
El-P- Cancer 4 Cure
Death Grips- The Money Store...
FUCK YES. They were unbelievable in 2009. Probably got permanent hearing damage from them, but whatever, it was worth it.
Gonna be really hard to top this year's slate of reunited bands, but here's a few I'd love to see next year:
The Stone Roses
Everything But The Girl
They all already performed during Kendrick's set.
Death Grips. I knew they'd be great, but I did NOT expect them to throw down the best set of the weekend. That was some crazy shit.
They'll get Ice Cube to show up and then a hologram of Eazy-E for an NWA reunion.
Refused was the most violent (and best) crowd all weekend if you ask me. Death Grips had some great moshing moments in there too, as did the Buzzcocks.
I thought Refused had the best crowd for sure.
The rapper from Death Grips was terrifyingly awesome!
I saw all of Flying Lotus then ran over to the main stage, pushed my way to get in front of the first barrier during Bon Iver, then ended up almost front and center for Radiohead. I'm scrawny and...
I agree. Unbelievable set. Death Grips was like nothing I have seen/heard before.
Death Grips and Wu Lyf!
Death Grips was seriously one of the most badass things I've ever seen.
Refused was easily my favorite of the day, and possibly my favorite of the entire festival. Sounded great, amazing energy, killer audience. And unlike a lot of "reunion" shows, the band members all...
Refused had a REALLY intense, hard-moshing crowd. Maybe it didn't appear so on the webcast, but that shit was VERY wild.
Honorable mentions to Wu Lyf, Neon Indian & DJ Shadow
Best set of the weekend. Best crowd of the weekend. Couldn't have asked for a more perfect show!
Madeon. Not even close.
The chick from Le Butcherettes FTW!
AWESOME! Hopefully we can get Vince Staples and Speak! to cameo during their sets!
Actually, Black Mountain also was playing during Roger Waters, which possibly qualifies as one of the worst conflicts ever since Black Mountain had admitted to being DIRECTLY INFLUENCED by Pink...
And Wale went on a half hour late in 2010.
Ehhh. I don't know. I've randomly managed to see him almost a half dozen times in LA, and while he's VERY hit or miss, I've seen him throw down one or two amazing sets. His show at the Music Box...
Last year I brought a bunch of 36 racks. They got in fine. In fact, security really didn't check our booze out much. We got in with way more than was allowed.
Back in 08 I broke my foot on my birthday (still don't remember how it happened) just about a week before Coachella. In all honesty, it didn't end up being a bad thing. When you're hobbling around...
The Black Lips
