I think she would've been great in one of the smaller tents 3 or 4 years ago, before she was headliner famous.

I believe M.I.A. nicely illustrates the point nathanfairchild put forth.
Exactly. Her afternoon Gobi set in 05 was incredible, but 08 was unbearably bad due to all the lame posturing/ego-mania and gratuitous gunshots. 09? I don't know because I skipped that shit for Band of Horses, though I did manage to hear an obscene amount of airhorns coming from the main stage.
EDIT: No Gaga, please, we're trying to avoid clusterfuck part deux
I really should have answered "Yes, absolutely" for this. Oh well.

I could care less about the chick either way. It's the little monster fans of hers that would show up in droves from L.A. ala Madonna 06' that worry me. Her fans are younger than Madonnas though and have the energy to hang out ALL DAY and ruin everything! lol
THIS. I first thought that she would act as like KOL, draw the crowds from actual music but than I remembered the fans...I saw the QOTSA and EODM benefit concert last year at Nokia Club, when I was walking toward it, I saw the most horrifying thing, Gaga's fans, half of them being children, and a quarter of the others were their moms, her concert was at the Nokia theater across the street, it was bad. I think Gaga will bring one of the WORST followings ever to Coachella if she headlined, not worth the hour that we get to be free of her shitty fan base
