    Agreed. I think that Godspeed are a ubiquitos and well-respected enough band by now to not only play an unopposed set, but to play one after dark, too.

    By that I mean, most of the people that go to Coachella at least know who Godspeed You Black Emperor are.

    it's been pointed out that when Mogwai played in 2006 the only other act going on was Madonna in the sahara. not that Mogwai need to be unopposed, but that's how it turned out. this could be similar. then again I don't think the do-lab existed in 2006. they generate some of the worst noise bleed.

    I also remember MBV on the Main and the only other act being Christopher Lawrence in the Sahara in 09 for 40 minutes.

    Absolutely. I doubt anyone would seriously lament a temporary do-lab shutdown.

    Totally forgot about LOTP. I just remember getting out of whatever act I was seeing and finding out I only had 2 options for 40 minutes and I didn't want to see neither.

    2009 was a fine vintage, indeed. A nearly perfect lineup, and the last pre-cluster festival.

    oh yeah. I forgot about that.

    though... they are the band with least reason to complain about noise bleed.

    No, they don't. Keep in mind that the music nerdiness of this board, and a small slice of us at that, does not translate to the wider audience that GV now aims to sell Coachella tickets to.

    I'm still unconvinced that they will be there merely based on the Big Sur/GAMH bookings. Shit, for all we know, they booked the GAMH run to record a live album.

    Most people that go to Coachella are now just regular people. Not music nerds. But more regular people are nerdy about music than 6 years ago, methinks. But GYBE? Not mainstream.

    Although there's Seth Rogen. GYBE in Mojave, Rogen & Friends on Outdoor, Jack Johnson on main stage.
    Ron Paul 2012!

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

    This. THIS.

    If it was at the Henry Miller Library, I'd be there in a heartbeat. But I'm not driving all the way up there to see them play in a fucking bar.

    Especially after how pristine the LA shows were last year, it would take a hell of a lot for this not to be the lesser of the shows I'd have seen.

    I agree and I think this was evidenced by the tiny Pavement crowd at the main stage two years ago.

    They had a very poor showing at Sasquatch too. Didn't Pavement more or less play EVERYWHERE in 2010 though? I think their crowd would have been a lot bigger if Coachella had been their reunion show.

    I'm fairly certain Caochella was their first U.S. reunion show. No?

    Correct. The Pavement reunion was oddly handled. They announced all the NYC shows ages in advance. Then they announced a ton of other shows including a bunch of pre-Coachella shows in New Zealand. Then their Coachella set was sandwiched between Phoenix and Thom Yorke.
    *based upon tedious fact checking.

    You're probably right. Pavement isn't a band I really pay attention to.

    If I recall, Orbital and Pavement had a small crowd while 70K people stood around at the Outdoor Theater waiting for Jesus and his band to start playing. It was epic.
