    For once, you're right. The data are inconclusive. We would need to know who was there for Phoenix, but stayed for Spoon.

    But I'm arguing based on the 25%. You know, an actual number for our purposes. You're arguing based on assumptions. Therefore, you're the asshole.

    I win.

    50,000 people go to see Radiohead and the opener is Liars. 3 of those people have to leave before Radiohead goes on because of emergencies. So that means 50,000 people saw Liars and 49,997 people saw Radiohead. Does this mean more people were there because of Liars than Radiohead? By your logic, it does.
    Yes, it does, because it shows that 50,000 people made the conscious decision to arrive at the seated venue early enough to watch Liars entire set. If they had no desire to see Liars, then they would have arrived later on into their set or just before Radiohead went on.

    Edit: If 3 people left for emergencies, it still doesn't change the story that 50,000 were there for Liars vs 49,997 for Radiohead. Numbers are numbers, and the majority is equal to whichever number is greater during the act performing at the time.

    You're completely excluding other reasons people may show up early.

    Maybe they just like seeing concerts. Maybe they wanted better seats. Maybe they were bored.

    There's no guarantee that because people show up early for a show which has an opening act that they have any idea who the fucking opening act is and to say that they showed up for that act makes you (1) a complete piece of shit and (2) I hate your guts.

    I think the PBJ slot sounds about right, but Phoenix is pretty widely popular right now especially because their song(s?) have been used in commercials.

    They made the conscious decision to see Liars, yes, but that doesn't mean they were there primarily because of Liars. There are too many unknowns in that case. The most reliable way to know if someone was just there for the opener is if they leave right after the opener. Like the 25% that apparently left after Phoenix and before Spoon.

    As a byproduct of your logic, you're ignoring people (in this hypothetical) who may have consciously watched Liars, but were there primarily for Radiohead.

    Like I said before, too many outside variables that we don't know about to make a black and white decision over! Let it go, Malcolm in the Middle!

    Well yeah, but if you're going to err on one side, it's that most of the people are there for the actual main act. You're just being a shit about this.

    woaah! people are going crazyyyyy.... Phoenix is big but not sub/main big, probably get billed on the outdoor w/ the respect for what theyve been able to draw lately. like Rage mentioned, nothing before dark.
    Coachella 07 (the introduction), 08 (the bands), 09 (the documentary), 10 (the people i came with), 11 (the relationship test... we passed), 12 (whatever the weather, Dirty Epic forever), 13 (the year of the troll)

    MGMT should not play any more shows anywhere until they write a new album, one that's actually good all the way through. They've been festival whores for two years straight. Enough is enough.

    I don't know but I really hope they don't. They were absolutely terrible at Bonnaroo. Their live show has gone steadily downhill and with nothing new even out, I can only imagine what a trainwreck a set from them at Coachella would be like.

    Wait... Phoenix or MGMT?

    If Phoenix I couldn't disagree more. They blew me away at Bonnaroo. So much fun.

    If you are talking about MGMT, I couldn't agree more. *Shudder*

    According to a trusted concert promoter here in Phoenix- The Big Pink, Girls, Vivian Girls, and Yeasayer are confirmed. You're welcome!

    Just curious, why would a concert promoter in Phoenix know who is confirmed for Coachella?

    Also, Yeasayer are my number 2 want for Coachella this year. That would make me happy.

    He confirmed The Big Pink... but not APTBS? That is odd, considering they are touring together. And Vivian Girls would be an odd choice of a repeat act. Girls were a pretty safe bet, but its good to hear from a source. And Yeasayer... I would pretty much jump for joy if they were on the line up.

    Yeah he just rattled off some names, and these are the ones I remember. A Place to Bury Strangers may have been mentioned, but I don't recall..
