    My thoughts exactly. Godspeed would have to play completely unopposed to play at Coachella... and that isnt gonna happen.

    Godspeed You! Black Emperor 2012 Tour Dates:
    04/15 Big Sur, CA @ Fernwood Resort
    04/16 San Francisco, CA @ Great American Music Hall
    04/17 San Francisco, CA @ Great American Music Hall
    04/18 San Francisco, CA @ Great American Music Hall
    04/19 San Francisco, CA @ Great American Music Hall
    04/20 San Francisco, CA @ Great American Music Hall
    And if there was any doubt they were playing Coachella... pretty much confirms they're a no go, right?

    Why would that confirm a no go?

    Just because I think those nights will be easier to get. My suspicion is that the Friday tix will go first. But, who knows...what is the best multi-night buying strategy Supre?

    Well, Big sur will be a pretty good deterrant from this. Everyone will want to exotic locale of it. If you want to go for a prime night, pick Friday. Its the last one. Lots of people like the first night of something like this. Because you are the first ones for the whole thing and its cool. The band is excited because they are going to have to try and make each night unique too. In the end I think the Thursday show might end up being THE ONE in regards to performance and what songs they play. Yes I understand lots of people will go to multiple nights, but its all going to depend on what they pick, and its a crap shoot. Ill say this, theyll be grateful to get into one, so maybe you play it safe.

    Yup. Tues/Thurs it is. If I want to go on Fri, I will just do CL. I've always been able to get a tic to a show in this town.

    Fuuuuuuuuck. These last few pages haven't really done anything to convince me that Godspeed playing Coachella is a feasible scenario. They have a hardcore streak (despite the lavish tour bus they apparently roll in) but it's tough for me to envision them going Indio->Big Sur->San Francisco on three consecutive days, and then San Francisco->Indio on the following Saturday. Unless they're playing different days during each Coachella weekend (Friday the first, Sunday the second), I think this is more in the "fuck you to Coachella" vein.

It was clear to me the reason that didn't play Coachella, was because noisebleed would be incredibly intrusive during their set.

    While, I know nothing of whether they are playing Coachella or not. I would wager that noise bleed wouldn't be an issue with a band like this. If GV really wanted them, then they would make the proper concessions needed to get them to play. That could include a PJ Harvey, Leonard Cohen, AfP type of concession in terms of making sure they had the least amount of noise during their set.

    That being said, I wasn't too happy with the set I saw from them when they played the Warfield (and that could be counted for numerous factors on my part: being incredibly tired, having a shitty view and being in an overall bad mood that evening. That and I don't think the Warfield is a good venue in general) but I will definitely be going to one of these shows to try and make up for that.

    this is going to be good.

    on a side note... is anyone else disappointed with the new gamh/slim's website? it's such a mess in my eyes. the old one was just so much easier to find shows and ticket info.

    I'm in that group as well. It baffles me that they wouldn't have a simple "get tickets" link smack dab in front.

    But it sure is pretty!

    The old one was simple and user friendly, what more did they think they needed?

    Dude these tour dates are a blueprint for bands playing both weekends. When are the two weekends again? Oh yeah, EXACTLY surrounding these dates, so Godspeed has something to do between the weekends. I don't know how they'll get around the soundbleed issue, I'm not the promoter, but GYBE is for sure playing.

    Upcoming Shows:
    Four Tet
    Coachella 4/20-4/22
    Death Cab for Cutie/Magik Magik Orchestra
    Radiohead
    some other bands

    And that would suck if Coachella attendees (who don't live in the Bay) would get punished and not have a chance to see GYBE. It's like the show is on a Thursday. Plus Big Sur is intimate so it's not like everybody can get tickets. I'd be willing to bet money (or a Spicy Pie) they will be on the fields
