Because of the awsomeness of 2006.
It seems Coachella has been more generous with headliner set time length since 2008. Rush usually plays 3 hours with an intermission. Maybe a solid 2 hours for a fest? Again, probably won't happen at...
They haven't played many festivals. That's one of the reasons I'd like to see them at Coachella...their music in that environment would be killer.
Very well stated. You're right, their newest stuff isn't as strong as Moving Pictures or Permanent Waves, but they've settled into a strong veteren status that justifies playing a lot of the new...
Probably not, they do well enough on their own, and there is a strange ageism with Coachella fans, but their music is not that far removed from many bands who have already played Coachella. Trent...
I think you're confusing Rush with bands relegated to the County Fair circuit. These guys play arenas on their own. They just did two nights at Gibson Amphitheater in LA. They are continuously one of...
It'll probably never happen, but I could see them as a Friday night headliner on the Main Stage, as long as Sat. and Sun. are slotted with more obvious Coachella bands to balance it out. If the...
Regarding Rush, yes, definitely! Their music is complex and cerebral like a lot of Coachella bands, and they've only grown in relevance. They still put out vital new music. Clockwork Angels is being...
I know I'll get flamed, but Rush would be pretty righteous.
An empty tent at Coachella is a thing of the past.
Troll 2: The best worst movie ever made.
I guess that's a no on the Steckler:) Seriously, THRILL KILLERS is highly recommended...Also SPIDER BABY by director Jack Hill. I bring this up because there seems to be some Argento fans on the...
Anybody familiar with Ray Dennis Steckler/Cash Flagg movies? The Thrill Killers is a great ultra-cool sixties b/w trashy horror movie by Steckler.
In the words of Crazy Alice: "Go suck poison from your mother's nipple!" Do it Mr. Nipples, do it.
But what about....SALO! Muhahahahahahaha!!
Ideal and realistic:
Sat. Arcade Fire
Sun. Daft Punk
I saw his set last year, and it was entertaining (crowd seemed into it to me). Nice midday get-the-buzz-started show, plus it transitioned into the X set as an L.A. twofer. The sound was distorted...
I'm 40 and will camp for the 5th time. Sleep while camping is totally possible even with the partying going on. If you do Coachella right each day, you should be tired enough to pass out by 1am. ...
The Sippy Cups
The Rolling Stones
Been to 2004, 2005, 2006 & 2009.
1) Daft Punk 06
2) McCartney 09
2) Air 04
3) Nine Inch Nails 05
4) Kraftwerk 04
5) Throbbing Gristle 09
6) Flaming Lips 04
7) Wilco 05
That's awesome. Hope to see you next year!
I had an absolute blast. This was my favorite year, and I've been to '04, '05, and '06. Also, a little thinning of strong bands to accomodate 3 days is fine by me. I had more time to chill and...
I kinda liked the screens that way (unclear until night). I thought it was sort of artistically cool. I like the idea of the bands coming into focus as night approaches.
This really young looking girl with red hair approached me and asked "Do you have any weed for sale"? She sounded so awkward. I'm 40, so maybe this possible narc was trying to speak my parlance by...
Looking for a pair of Sunday tickets. I live in the Inland Empire and will travel a ways if the price is right. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org or PM me.
Etienne De Crecy
Sorry, I need a pair. Good luck.
I don't know what bump means.
How much for two Sunday tickets? I live in the Inland Empire.
So what if Bono is famous and wants to help people...I'm sure those were genuine sentiments. It's better than doing nothing.
"Karma police, I'm doing all I can, it's not enough..."
Why zank you.
Does anybody know how to create a jukebox/playlist on youtube (or anywhere) that will play in bulk without my having to click on each individual song to listen? The current playlist I found on...
Yeah, he is really, really cool. Talked to me for a few minutes. I highly reccommend attending one of these screenings. As a matter of fact, Sid Haig will be there every night until Tuesday...
Here's a link to the people who organize it:
The theater that hosts it:
I vote for a showing of Yellow Submarine. Ever bake to that? Great animation and apropos with McCartney and all. Then, have a party band like Dread Zeppelin or Gram Rabbit play a set.
Mastodon-Crack The Skye (they are soooo gonna kick ass).
I just saw a movie called Spider Baby at the New Beverly Cinema (Sid Haig introduced the movie with the director). Awesome, awesome grindhouse flickiness. They do this every couple of weeks. Any...
Seriously. Camp. Especially if you have a propensity to sleep in late. Getting into the concert at 11 am is pretty awesome. Few people are there and you basically have the run of the place for a...
No you're not, buddy. I've never understood why Automatic for the People is so often forgotten or ignored as a classic.
I bought the CD when it came out and thought it was a bunch of damn noise. About six or seven years later I put it on again and, with my expectaions lowered, it started to grow on me. Now I love...
They're showing Texas Chainsaw Massacre at Coachella?
Tori Amos is a fuckin' pig.
I concur. Morrissey is a whiny instigator of suicide amongst 14 year old girls...at least he was in the eighties.
Thanks for the tips. Will be checking out as many of these acts as possible. Coachella is coming, hahahahahaha. Cannot wait!
Can anybody suggest a fun (energetic, quirky, humorous) band to see on Friday?
Has anybody mentioned 300 yet? Boy was that a piece of asscaca.
Listen to Chaos and Creation in the Backyard from a few years ago, and Ram from '72. Both awesome, both bookend his career nicely.
I'm almost forty. I've been to thousands of shows. Seen everybody from Ratatat to Daft Punk to McCartney. A seasoned concert goer must be aware that certain live shows defy expectations. The...
