    So I have to choose between "good not great" and "legendary"? Guess I'll go with legendary.

    i am giving them a second chance and i am prepared to be totally annoyed again. But i picked Wild but entertaining mess.

    I am guessing Outdoor Theater at 11pm?

    What is the general opinion on this?


    Crystal Castles+Outkast+Raekwon+Scratch Bastid


    I think it's catchy...

    The new album was good, but they still suck live.

    2008... And I've also watched a ton of YouTubes of recent performances in an attempt to justify giving them another chance because I liked the newest album a lot, but they still are offensively bad live. To make matters worse, Alice doesn't even come out to "sing" during "Empathy".

    I dont trust youtube footage to give a good indication of how good/bad a live show is. Its never the same as actually seeing the show.

    Someone posted a video from their Coachella performance to point out how bad that particular set was... then they posted a "good" video from a "good" performance.

    I asked someone to explain the difference between the two videos.


    Still waiting...

    Really? That's a shame. I really enjoy those albums.

    They were awesome at BFD a couple years ago, truly awesome.

    If it's in the dark of night, has insane crowd energy, and the sound quality is good it'll be amazing at Coachella. Yes she'll shriek and yelp but if everything else is good she's still good as a hype man. Can't be shown on Youtube what it's like to be there at all.

    From what I've seen on these boards, Crystal Castles is, for some reason, the most discussed band playing Coachella.
