  1. Re: Who in the small print on the poster is must see?

    I know this might sound dickish, but this is my 11th Coachella and for the first time I seriously think the bottom three line are better than the top. Get there early every day.

    I assumed from Slugworth's use of the phrase "pop country" that he had developed his dislike of Sturgill Simpson without actually hearing him. It's so much easier and a whole lot quicker to develop...

    Re: Sturgill Simpson

    Listened to him with a predisposition to dislike just because he's country. That voice and his music have so much soul that I'm now really looking forward to his set.

    Re: What a shit show

    If I recall correctly Kanye did not appear anywhere until the set times were listed. As for this year, I'm still going to hope for Aphex Twin because he was a late add in 2008.

    Can't figure out why Doomtree has never done Coachella. Saw them in Sac at small festival and they killed as did P.O.S. in a separate set.

    I think it is correct to identify EDM cheese (but certainly not all EDM) as a "shallow trend." For that reason I have a "this too shall pass" attitude. One reason I can easily tolerate the cheese...

    Re: Weekend 2. Never again.

    I went to weekend 1 in 2012 and weekend 2 last year. Because none of the shows I saw had "surprise" guests, I did not notice any difference whatsoever. This year weekend 2 is more convenient.

    Thank you. As a Knife fan I'm going to give this a chance but if it sucks Hot Since 82 is the only option. I'll pass on electro-swing, dickhead frat-boy rock, and Skrillex-lite.
